Lots of bars on Rainey are good for dates, but if you’re trying to seal the deal, we’d suggest you start with Lucille. The wood-framed house is a beautiful spot, complete with candlelight, fancy drinks (get the El Jefe), hammocks, tons of outdoor seating, and cozy indoor booths. And there are two bar options, which makes the push-and-shove-for-a-drink game much less intense.
