Hello all -
As I've re-entered the dating scene in Manhattan recently, I'm interested to know if people could recommend a well-lighted, quiet bar in Manhattan (midtown east, midtown west, or anywhere downtown) that is conducive to conservation.
I've picked some bars that advertised themselves as low-key but when there on a first date, the background music was quite loud, and being hearing-impaired, made it much more difficult to understand my date and made for some obvious awkward moments that I would prefer to avoid in the future.
Any rec's would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
