Queens, New York is the most ethnically diverse urban area in the world. You read that right.
In the entire world. So it only makes sense that our top 10 picks for your next Queens date night include a variety of neighborhoods, cuisines, atmospheres and price points. Queens is also over square miles, making it by far the largest borough in New York. As with any speakeasy worth its salt, Dutch Kills is a bit hard to find the first time.
A relatively unmarked door on a nondescript block in Date Island City hides a truly fantastic bar with craft cocktails to rival any downtown Manhattan spot. The Capital Gains is a boozy, cinnamon brandy delight that smells as good as it tastes. This cozy hideaway is really all about the cocktails, so we recommend getting dinner before and after. The Queens Night Market is only open in the summer and autumn, but it is well worth a visit the next time you want to venture a bit further out for some truly incredible food and fantastic energy.
This is our top pick for a slightly adventurous, but pretty safe-bet first date in Queens. Why not try a few, and wander around to catch a performance before grabbing a TwisterCake, aka a Romanian-Hungarian Chimney Cake. The menu sports the usual suspects of restaurants Asian fusion spot: Salmon Teriyaki, Vietnamese Noodles, and a thorough sushi menu, and throws in a few more unique options like Lychee Calamari and Prosciutto Shrimp Fried Queens. The real star at SHI is not the food, but the view. The breathtaking view of the Manhattan Skyline is romantic enough to make any date-night best.
Our most romantic pick is Vite Vinosteriaan authentic Italian restaurant in Astoria. The staff is really what puts VITE over the top. They are friendly and thoughtful, without being overly obtrusive. AKA they can read a vibe. The portions are reasonable, which is always appreciated if you want the romance to continue after a trip to an Italian restaurant.
Antique store meets psychic meets incredible club scene? The Keep in Ridgewood has it all. Stop by during the day for a supremely cozy and eclectic vibe. And then swing by at night for a truly wild night, tarot reading optional, but encouraged. Chill vibe, good cocktails, and a vibe that is definitely Queens meets Bushwick.
No list about date spots in Queens would be complete without a Greek restaurant. No list of top date spots in Queens would be complete without a dive bar. No frills, no fuss, just community, reasonably priced drinks, and surprisingly good food. This Astoria favorite is an absolute must for anyone looking to have an authentic Queens dining experience. Queens Comfort is no-nonsense, high-satisfaction American food.

And you are almost guaranteed to get sassed at the door. Which is why you show up in the first place.
If you thought we could complete this list without a classic Irish Pub, you must be feeling like an eejit. Of course, you can always get Fish and Chips and a pint of Guinness.
