PLAN DATE: SUN / JUNE 24
We love a good wine bar that brings the romance. With cozy booths, sheer curtains, and candlelit earth tones, DiWine fits the bill. This intimate spot in Astoria is known for their wine selection, and with good reason—the list of international vintages is over 100 strong. Pick a bottle that catches your eye, order a few tapas to share—we recommend the truffle mac and cheese and the crab cakes—and cuddle up with your lover on one of DiWine’s chocolate suede couches.
It could be the wine, or it could be your lover that’s got you feeling loose, but we think the next logical move is Karaoke Shout. Declarations of “I love you” always sound better set to music, so whether you’re a Ktown karaoke pro or a secret shower singer, you’ll want to take to the mic tonight. The bold among you will love performing to the crowd in the main area, but if a private performance is more your speed, you can book a room for a party of two.
