From the outside, this 20+ year-old Cobble Hill restaurant looks like a typical French bistro with wicker chairs, tiny tables, and people drinking wine on their Smith Street sidewalk. But head inside and you’ll realize there’s a Happy Hour Garden of Eden waiting for you (sans snakes or other biblical chaos). They serve discounted drinks on weekends from 3:30pm to 8:30pm where glasses of wine cost $6.50. Be sure to bring cash with you - Cafe Luluc doesn’t accept cards.

If you have a date in Brooklyn, consider Elsa. It’s cozy, good-looking, and there’s a big cocktail list. If you’re likable, the date should go fine.
