Lovers of Today Is Taylor Swift's Favorite Bar & Also Perfect for Lovers

New York nights should always be Earth Wind & Fire-level romantic. That's exactly what this plan is. Starting at Freemans (where you'll walk down possibly the most romantic light-strung alleyway in New York City) dig into some upscale American fare with a twist of colonial decor. With an address like “end of Freemans Alley” you know you’re in for a magical Harry Potter-esque evening. We love the simple, old-world cuisine and atmosphere. Don’t miss the dessert specials. Our little tip? Try the Freemans cocktail with rye whiskey and pomegranate molasses.

Then, take a leisurely walk up through the East Village to Lovers of Today (Taylor Swift's favorite bar, in fact). It's small, intimate and great for close conversation. Their happy hour rocks too (with cocktails 1/2 priced from 5-8 p.m.). We recommend you get there early enough to snag a mirrored booth.
