Prepare To Get Physical At 'Your Cool Uncle's Basement' Bar With A Bocce Court

For dinner, start the night at Pil Pil, a colorful Upper East Side treat that is as striking in its flavors as it is in its design. Rocking a kind of urban tavern vibe that isn’t afraid of the color red, Pil Pil offers up traditional Spanish cuisine that leans especially on tapas (because we all know that when you share, you care). The dishes are reasonably priced, and there are plenty of vegetarian options if that’s the way you roll.

After dinner, take a stroll over to Jack & Fanny’s for some craft cocktails—just be prepared to get physical. Jack & Fanny’s isn’t your run-of-the-mill bar, with a bocce court nestled in what they refer to as “your cool uncle’s basement.” Rocking a mid-century vibe with fun cocktail names (shoutout to No Time For Boners), this bar is a must-visit.
