PLAN DATE: MON / AUG. 13
Pergola is all about fashion and function. Not only does this flower shop-turned-Mediterranean bistro whip up some deliciously modern takes on authentic Mediterranean cuisine, the atmosphere and ambiance are equally grade-A. With an indoor garden aesthetic, and a massive ceiling courtesy of its two-floor layout, Pergola is ripe with textbook date night vibes. The hookah menu (with options like champagne, blue mist, and almond milk) is just the icing on the cake.
After dinner, make your way over to Oscar Wilde to take advantage of what ought to be an official national holiday: National Prosecco Day. With Victorian Era inspiration laid on thick (see: decorative molding, massive ceilings that rival the Palace of Versailles, and richly detailed gold accents), this intricately detailed cocktail lounge is in such a class of its own, it deserves its own Instagram filter. That said, it gets better. Tonight only, they’re offering $9 glass/$30 bottles of prosecco, as well as discounts on all of their other bubbly beverages ($2 off glasses, $10 off bottles).
