2. The Sinclair
Things we love about The Sinclair: the restaurant serves Kung Pao sweetbreads and bourbon-buttered mussels, the bar makes a wicked whiskey smash, and the masterfully-designed performance space doesn't have a single bad view of the bands (like Charli XCX, next week). Things your date will love about The Sinclair: that you brought her.
