Queens Botanical Garden 

Queens Botanical Garden

A few girlfriends and I came here and after visiting we all agreed there is no excuse why men aren’t taking girls out on dates as often LOL. For a few dollars you get to relax and take a stroll through a nice garden! *Be sure to spray yourself with bug spray and steer clear of floral perfumes. I would consider this one of the most cutest date spots in queens!

A new comedy club that recently open in Long Island City, Queens! The Standing Room is known for its crafted drinks and witty comedians. Seating is very intimate. If you have long legs, I suggest you sit at the tables that have stools! J and I came here on our first date! Way to break the ice! The surrounding artwork adds a nice authentic feel to the decor. Try their ‘Flower’ cocktail!

Artichoke Basille’s Pizza

Although I feel that when it comes to pizza (especially in New York), everyone has their own taste. However, i feel that Artichoke offers the tastiest pizza Queens has to offer! My favorite is the Margherita! Very tasty. If you and your date are craving for a late night bite, stop by Artichoke Basille’s for a slice. Plus, they have a bar. The guys who work there are very friendly!

Majority of all my Queens heads do not know about this one. Bayhouse is indeed a hidden gem. Who would have known Rosedale has a calm waterfront restaurant? During the daytime, the outside patio looks very nice. It’s especially nice during sunset too! Did I mention they give tons of food? Cause they do! They have happy hour every Monday from 5-7pm.
