The Local Bar and Cafe
Long Island City
We rarely recommend a hotel bar as a first date spot, but the Local bucks the trend. And it isn't technically a hotel bar since the The Local is a hostel. Regardless, come here for the open space, eclectic art, occasional live music and simple drink and coffee options.
Lots of beer options, a few wines, a short and sweet cocktail list, coffee and tea.
Pastries, hand pies and other snacks.
Bar and table seating are pleantiful.
