3. The Beehive
You catch more bees with honey than vinegar, so they say. Translation: reserving a table for two near the stage at The Beehive, sharing a plate of tuna tartare, toasting drinks off one of the city's top cocktail menus, and taking in a jazz trio or funk band performance with your date will catch you an invitation upstairs at the end of the night.
