Harper & Rye has strong and delicious cocktails for $11, a hip but not overly pretentious interior, and a solid corner spot on Polk. All of these things make it an ideal spot for a first date, especially if you go up to the quieter second floor. If you’re not planning any dates at the moment, it’s also a good place for post-work drinks. Just know you’ll have to go somewhere else when you get hungry - or bring in your own food.
