PLAN DATE: SAT / JUNE 15
Load up on liquid courage for the night by taking your lover to Black Door for drinks. After opening the (surprise, surprise) heavy black door, you’ll walk into a low-key bar whose dark walls, dim lighting, and sparse art give off a low key, almost apartment-like feel. This place has an earned neighborhood reputation as a nice place to sit and drink at a relaxed pace. They’ve got a well-stocked bar and will give up the good stuff at a decent price, so don’t be afraid to go for a whiskey or something of that ilk.
Decadence NYC’s monthly play party attracts dominatrixes of all kinds, so it’s perfect for a couple that’s part or entirely submissive. People of all genders are invited to come and explore their submissive side at this upscale, loft-esque space. The club provides all the supplies needed alongside light refreshments, so all you need to bring is a sense of adventure. The first hour kicks off with a free social mixer, and if all feels right you can stay to play for four hours at only $60 per couple—but feel free to pay more, if that’s your thing.

idk tip: The lighting is dark so be prepared to whip out a phone flashlight if you need to read the menu.

idk tip: If you’re arriving separately to rock that classic stranger role play, know that it’s $80 for submissives and $10 for dommes.
