Kick Back and Tee Up at the Chelsea Piers Driving Range for a Unique, Active Date Night
Kick back and tee up at the Chelsea Piers Driving Range for a unique, active date night. This golf lover’s dream overlooks the Hudson and uses an automated ball tee-up system that makes for smooth play. The 200-yard fairway is open ‘till 11 p.m., and with good reason, as you might find yourself tirelessly trying to perfect your swing. $30 will get you 94 balls. To up the romance factor, definitely plan to head there around sunset.
Post-driving range appetite, head down the street towards Lamano, a social bar offering authentic Spanish tapas and wine pairings. The space is small and intimate, with communal dining tables (you just might make some new friends during dinner). Some of their most popular Spanish plates include the Patatas Bravas, a Spanish french fry, so to speak, with accompanying tangy sauce, and Pulpo a Diera, a poached octopus dish. Mexican chef Mario Hernandez is a Latin food expert, skilled in adventurous dishes including ants and grasshoppers.
