Where to: Eat

  Kettle Black

        So your date can’t decide where to take you? You’re actually in luck. Suggest heading over to Kettle Black in Silverlake and you and your date won’t be disappointed. First of all, they have cheese boards. If that doesn’t get you excited, how about delicious pasta, great ambiance and a worthwhile Happy Hour? Did someone say $6 white and red wines? We’re in. Kettle Black is your ideal Italian dinner date. Tranquil. Delicious. Intimate. 


 EP & LP

        Ready to get a little more funky? Try EP Asian House in West Hollywood. Cool. Unique. Flavorful. You’re sure to impress your date with the Twice Cooked Black Angus Short Rib or the Chicken Curry. If your date is going well, it doesn’t have to end when the check comes. Head upstairs to L.P. the rooftop bar, boasting great views, fire pits and killer cocktails. It’s a two for one kind of deal. 



        Looking to enjoy some of the summer sun? Smorgasburg lets you enjoy the fresh air; while grubbing down on some delicious food. It’s an outdoor market, open every Sunday 10am - 4pm in Downtown LA. From acai bowls to arepas to lobster rolls to gourmet rice balls, there is no way that you and your date won’t find something delicious to appease your hunger. You get one dish and have your date get another, then you can try each others! 

Where to: Drink

Santa Monica Brew Works

        You’ll look like a LA pro, by taking your date to the only brewery in Santa Monica! Santa Monica Brew Works functions as a brewery and a bar. Get a chance to see how beer is made; while also getting a chance to taste some of their amazing beer in their tasting room. Some days, they even have live music and food trucks!



The Garden Bar

        This place is purely about sophistication and elegance. Want to take it up a notch from beer tasting? Impress your date with drinks at The Montage’s Garden Bar. You’ll pay a pretty penny for some of their drinks. But, it’s a nice place to get some good one on one time and give off a great first impression.
