There are some dates where you want to go somewhere well lit, get to know each other, and call it a night. Other times, you want to go drink strong cocktails in a dark bar and see where the night goes. The Ranstead Room was designed for the latter. This semi-hidden speakeasy is known for being kind of hard to find and making great drinks, and while they serve food too, that’s not really why you go here. Order whatever your favorite classic cocktail is, or go for the Bartender’s Choice. Either way, it’ll take a few minutes to make and be one of the best drinks you’ve had in a long time.

Village Whiskey

The core concepts of Village Whiskey are fairly simple: great bourbon and great burgers. Head to the casual Rittenhouse spot for both and leave happy.
