Hipsters have a very particular taste when it comes to… well… everything. They tend to avoid mainstream activities so it’s pretty difficult to impress them. If you’re currently dating a hipster, you’ll need to keep this in mind and impress him/her with alternative places like these:
1. Light Industry
Their goal is to explore new models for the presentation of cinema. Bringing together the worlds of contemporary art, experimental film, and documentary. Begin your date here if you want to set a high bar.
155 Freeman Street, Greenpoint, Brooklyn
2. Amor y Amargo
If you fancy a little drink to relax and get some tipsy confidence, you should grab a vermouth at Amor y Amargo. It’s a really nice place and fits well with that particular drink.
443 E 6th St, NY 10009
3. Artist Space
This is a non-profit art gallery and art organization. If you go there its because you like art and you want to support an alternative culture which doesn’t seek financial reward for human creativity.
