Most nights, you’re going to find a crowd at Doris. So if you want to meet someone or just hang around a bunch of people and pretend they're your friends, come here. This place has a backyard, they often have a DJ playing vinyl, and the disco ball here seems to turn on at 11pm sharp. The space is attractive, with high ceilings and a vaguely-Southwestern theme, and it works just fine for a fun first date.

The Fly

At The Fly, you eat chicken and drink wine. In other words, it’s pretty ideal, and you should grab some dinner at this Bed-Stuy spot.
