67 Orange Street: Harlem Nights


For an intimate night out in Harlem, set your sights on 67 Orange Street, where clandestine romance lives. The spot is small, all the better for getting close to your sweetheart. Expect an old-school kind of night, inspired by the glamour of speakeasies. Lead the way in through an unmarked entrance. Inside you’ll see lots of other couples, but the easygoing atmosphere ensures plenty of privacy. Candles and exposed bulbs cast you and your date in flattering low light. The bartenders may look like characters out of the Roaring Twenties, but the cocktails are fully modern. Get in the spirit of the spirits with an Upper Manhattan, blending potent rye with bitters, vermouth, and a brandy-soaked cherry. Or just let the bartenders work their magic: tell them your tastes and they’ll come back with a bespoke wonder. The same love goes into the kitchen’s efforts, with modern-Southern delights like molasses-glazed short ribs and lobster mac ‘n’ cheese. You’re in Harlem, so chicken and waffles are definitely in order. The house goes one further, making the waffles out of red velvet—if you hadn’t already figured out this place is sexy.
