The Social Study
Where we've featured it
Date night plan: go to a movie at Kabuki and get drinks before or after at Social Study. It’s literally next door, and it’s dim and romantic (provided no one is still posted up on their laptop), with a great wine and beer selection. On weekend nights there’s a DJ upstairs, and they play old movies on the brick walls like an indoor Foreign Cinema. Old books everywhere and high ceilings are the keys to first date success.
We love going to The Social Study for dates, especially when you can turn waiting for a table at State Bird into a mini-date. The beer, wine, and sake selection is solid, a DJ plays every Thursday through Saturday, and they have a projector always playing movies on the wall, so there’s a lot to distract you from how long you’re waiting for dinner.
