You’ve done all the classic dates: dinner and a movie, bowling, concerts… but have you ever ventured behind the bookcase for a romantic outing? We didn’t think so. Keep reading for the scoop on Betty Lou’s Library, the hot 1920’s space that your honey will love.

As soon as you walk in, you’ll be taking a step back in time. From the old-school phone to the password-only entrance to the secret bookcase doorway, Betty Lou’s is unlike any other lounge in the city. Softly glowing chandeliers, red velvet ropes, and jazzy tunes come together to create a unique and unforgettable mood.

Their handcrafted cocktail menu is full of famous authors, from the rye, rum, and absinthe concoction Virginia Woolf to the bourbon-heavy Josephine Baker. There’s also red, rosé, white and bubbles to choose from, so your date will not be going thirsty. Pair your drinks with a Truffle Mushroom Tapenade or a European Salumi Plate to really round it out, and we promise you’ll earn some major brownie points.

If you really love your night, you can head back to Betty Lou’s for their Gatsby-themed NYE celebration. With live jazz, passed tapas, burlesque performances, a complimentary drink, and the staple midnight toast, the Library is the perfect place to kick off 2019. Tix are sure to sell out, so make sure you grab them ASAP.
