For singles, Valentine’s Day can seem like a proverbial shot through the heart. Here in NY, however, opportunists everywhere are finally learning that singles can enjoy this holiday just as much as their coupled counterparts. Defy the dated Kleenex and ice cream notion: break out your MeetMoi app and head to one of these spots instead!
Grand Central Station is best known as NYC’s landmark hub for train connections. Tonight it’s a hub for love connections as The New York Transit Museum hosts its annual Missed Connections party inside the famed Vanderbilt Hall. Highlights? The Transit Museum’s Grand by Design exhibit, music, poetry, tastings of wine, beer, and dessert… AND designated kissing rooms!
Unlovable at Brooklyn’s Bell House
This converted 1920’s warehouse is perfect for spying eye candy far across the room as cover band The Sons & Heirs plays their hearts out in tribute to The Smiths & Morrissey. Come early for comedian Dave Hill, and stay for the sweet sounds of British rock… and maybe a smooch in the corner.
Feigning young, raucous love on the run? Try NYC’s official V-day bar crawl: Ten Midtown East bars ensure endless opportunities to drink like a fish and swim from bar to bar alongside single strangers. Be sure to come up for air now and again, if you plan to make it back to shore in one piece.
