PLAN DATE: SAT / JUL. 14
You know those prosecco/rosé glasses with popsicles sticking out of them you’ve been seeing everywhere? That’s at Loopy Doopy Rooftop Bar — a cocktail lounge on the roof of the Conrad Hotel in Battery Park City. The seasonal venue offers great views of the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty and New York Harbor — ideal for a turned-up Saturday night with your S.O. Their famous ice pop cocktails vary on a monthly basis, but we recommend the blueberry peach, strawberry lemongrass or empire apple.
Once you’ve had your fair share of Instagram’s favorite new cocktail, walk over to Max for an intimate, candlelit Italian dinner. They’ve been serving the residents of Tribeca since the year 2000 and unlike a number of restaurants in the neighborhood, this place actually slings affordable (and delicious) Italian staples. We love to sit at one of the tables for two up the stairs, overlooking the rest of the glowy space. Split a bottle of red and cheers Jay and Bey (they do live nearby, after all).

idk tip: Their homemade lasagna with béchamel cheese and black (squid ink) spaghetti with shrimp & spicy tomato sauce are two of our favorites.
