First dates are awkward. Stressful. Intimidating. Am I dressed too casually? Does my butt look the good kind of fat in these jeans? Who pays? With all of this running through your frantic little mind, the last thing you should worry about is where to take this PYT you’ve scored a date with. So here’s a guide to first dates on Chapel Street!

You’re not too sure if you actually like them…yet. They’ve got the face of a young Charles Manson, but you’re slightly concerned that they have the personality to match. Play it safe and meet somewhere bustling with people and of course, great coffee. After all, if the date fizzles, at least you’ll have caffeine to carry you through!

Cafes perfect for first dates:

If you want to take it slowly and see where the night takes you, meeting up for a drink is the obvious answer. After all, a drink can turn into drinks & dinner if there’s a spark. Or if there’s no vibe, you can GTFO quick smart.

This one’s a keeper & it’s time to impress. Like your Mama once said, the way to the heart is through their…. stomach. Show off your foodie sensibilities with a date at one of Chapel Street’s hottest restaurants. One tip. On a first date, it’s probably best to avoid a Friday night unless you can book ahead. We all know the line game is STRONG at Chapel Street hotspots and waiting is a mood killer fo sho. End the night with a shared dessert, that way you get cake without looking like a fatty and be cute at the same time. Win win.
