Deux Chats is from the team behind Le Dive and The Nines, two downtown bars where you’ll meet people who provide fashion advice to their 100 or so TikTok followers. Located under the Williamsburg Bridge, this Belle Époque-themed spot is a little less sceney than those other bars, and it’s perfect for a casual date night when you want to share some small plates. The bright, vaulted space is filled with distressed mirrors and ornate light fixtures, and the menu consists of interesting cocktails and a few fantastic seafood dishes. Try a Kinky Martini (slightly spicy, made with vodka), then eat some chilled sardines and a couple slices of salmon crudo so thick they qualify as filets. Or, if you want to make people stare at you, get a big seafood plateau.

Le Dive is a busy little wine bar in a very busy part of the Lower East Side, and it's a great spot to drink, snack, and take in a scene.

The Nines

The Nines is a Noho piano bar with red velvet chairs and cheetah print carpet. Bring a date for a pricey cocktail, and enjoy a piano cover of "Buy U a Drank."
