First date? Mixed signals? Here are 13 fun, but non-committal spots where the evening can easily be as brief or long as you'd like it to be.

01

Easy Lover

790 Metropolitan Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11211, United States

01

This bar checks all the boxes when it comes to having a good night out. Optional live entertainment, outdoor seating, cool 70s decor and music, great drinks, and food.

02

The Greats of Craft

983 1st Ave, New York, NY 10022, United States

The Greats of Craft

In a neighborhood that sometimes feels sleepy during off-work hours, Greats of Craft is a welcome exception. Catch live trivia, music, and comedy almost nightly. Rent out the lounge in the back for private events.

03

Union Hall

702 Union St, Brooklyn, NY 11215, United States

Union Hall

702 Union St, Brooklyn, NY 11215, United States

Whether you want to cozy up in what feels like a Victorian living room over some cocktails and bites, or catch a live comedy show downstairs (their curation is impeccable), this Park Slope spot has it all.

04

Gutter Bar

200 N 14th St, Brooklyn, NY 11249, USA

04

At Gutter Bar you can partake in as much or as little as you'd like. Check out a comedy show in The Spare Room (Comedians You Should Know is probably the most popular), go bowling in their retro bowling alley, or shoot some pool on the billiard table.

05

Jadis

42 Rivington St, New York, NY 10002, USA

Jadis

With comfortable couches, low lighting, and an extensive, diverse wine list, Jadis is what we call, a *vibe.* It's cozy, it's romantic AND there's well-curated cheese.

06

Sake Bar Decibel

240 E 9th St, New York, NY 10003, United States

Sake Bar Decibel

240 E 9th St, New York, NY 10003, United States

Step down a rickety flight of stairs into New York’s own Little Toyko subterranean hangout. With over 100 sakes available and a mission to bring Japanese sake culture stateside, Sake Bar Decibel will guide through your experience no matter how knowledgeable or novice you are.

07

The Long Island Bar

110 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11201, USA

07

When you see the bright neon sign on Atlantic Avenue in Brooklyn, let it serve as a beacon of good fortune. Toby Cecchini (you know him as the inventor of the Cosmopolitan) faithfully restored this historic Cobble Hill staple a few years ago in all of its Art Deco glory. While the spot offers outdoor seating, what you really want to do is sit at bar and order a classic dry gin martini, up, and with a twist.

08

Bushwick Public House

1288 Myrtle Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11221, USA

Bushwick Public House

A Bushwick locale known for it's casual coffee shop vibe by day, and warehouse party feel by night.

09

Old Man Hustle BKLYN Bar

308 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249, USA

Old Man Hustle BKLYN Bar

308 Bedford Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11249, USA

Come for the drinks, stay for the show. A comedy-optional comedy club that gets the same big names you'll see at the Cellar.

10

C'mon Everybody

325 Franklin Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11238, United States

10

Whether you catch a musical performance, comedy, burlesque, or a drag show, the programming is top notch and more than often, a little raunchy.
