Best Place to Take a Blind Date

Lava Lounge

This Tremont bar excels at the two keys to making a blind date pleasant: dim lighting and strong drinks. Keeping with a lava theme, the red walls are complemented by matching red lights, which cast an intimate glow. The extensive wine, beer, and cocktail lists offer something for even the pickiest drinkers -- including a banana-split martini -- and the menu features small plates that even strangers will feel comfortable sharing. On a Saturday night, the DJ's funky tracks lend a relaxed, groovy vibe.
