Here is a list of eight great places throughout Connecticut to take that special someone out on a date. I’ve given you the place, which is half the battle, so please, for the love of God, don’t blow it.
This little coffee joint is a cool, relaxed place to take someone you want to get to know. The atmosphere is different and well-decorated and the service is great. The coffee and drink menu is decent, including smoothies and blended drinks if you’re not feeling like something straight-up espresso.
There’s also a breakfast and lunch menu if you get hungry.
If you’re looking for a place with a little edge to it, Black Eyed Sally’s is your match. It’s got burger sliders, pulled pork sliders, wings — and it’s all delicious.
They even have Fat Tuesdays at Sally’s with live acoustic rock and $5 pitchers and plates.
Do you or your date have a little Michael Jackson obsession? Well, who doesn’t now that he’s dead, right? Anyways, MJ’s family has a little obsession with the ricotta donuts served up at Market Restaurant. So much so, that they ordered them so they could be served at his funeral.
Go check them out, apparently they’re to die for.
This new comedy club is great if you’re ready for a laugh. It targets the 30+ age range, claiming that its comedians are “a bit spicy, but never gross.” The comedians come from all over the nation, so you never know who might just pop in for a bit.
The club offers a full cash bar and a light menu.
This place always has a few events to choose from every month. From the Bridgeport Sound Tigers, to national bands to American Idol tours to circus acts, you really can’t go wrong. But be sure to plan ahead, as many of the events are sporadic.
Looking for something a little more romantic? Then this is your place. Bella Fiore Restaurant has a relaxed, candle-lit atmosphere with a wonderful Italian menu.
They have private corner booths for you and your honey to relax in while enjoying excellent service and decent wine.
This lounge is the perfect place to cozy up to your date. With chairs, loveseats and couches with privacy drapes throughout the place, you can’t help but want to get a bottle and get comfy.
The menu offers wine, champagne and some food.
Is your date a little punk? Well, this punk rocker bar will be right up their alley. Just one catch according to them: “Cool cats, hipsters, hot broads and greasers are welcome; hotheads, bad attitudes, people with barbed wire tattoos and obnoxious drunk girls: please stay home!”
The bar even has a reputation for being haunted – if that’s what you’re into. Guests say that they’ve seen shadows in their pictures and have an eerie feeling at times.
