The Loveliest Walkable Date Nights Around The Vitagraph

Date night is a big deal. But, you don’t want to spend most of it on public transport — and you don’t need to. There are so many great date ideas all within walking distance in the trendy Brooklyn area near Madison and The Vitagraph Apartments.

Michael’s of Brooklyn

Every good date night starts with food. Michael’s of Brooklyn, is one of the staple restaurants of the borough, family-owned since 1964. Its elegant dining room is reminiscent of a classy yet glitzy ballroom. The experience sets the perfect level of intimacy for you and your date. Try the Braised Short Ribs and Fried Gnocchi.


Turn your date night into steak night at Bordeaux, another highly-reviewed restaurant right around the corner. The wine list is enough to fall in love, but the exquisitely prepared steak (made from high-end Kosher beef) will have you down on one knee.

Sycamore Bar + Flower Shop

After dinner, take a stroll for a romantic nightcap. Sycamore Bar + Flower Shop is almost too perfect of a date night spot. Drinks and flowers? Romance 101. In addition to their creative cocktails, there’s a lovely backyard garden that’s oh-so romantic.

Ice Cream House

Ice Cream House is a fun spot for dessert that’s become a Brooklyn favorite. Share an ice cream sundae with your sweetheart or a delicious milkshake with two straws.

After a vibrant, intimate evening out, head back to your elegant, luxury apartment home at The Vitagraph for quality time together. The beautifully designed complex is inspired by the heart of the area while providing residences with a rejuvenating respite from busy city life.
