You'll want to book a parking spot in their garage on SpotHero before you go.
Bar is closed in the morning, but restaurant on 16 will serve you drinks on the couches outside.

Pros:Great view of the city. As a party of two you'll probably be sitting directly by the window.
Cons: They don't accept reservations, so depending on the time (especially around sunset) there may be a line to enter. They card  from 7PM and on.

What are some alternatives to New Roc City type place? I heard it isn't that great (don't remember details but definitely heard complaints about noisiness) but the concept is good. (i.e. a place with arcades, pool, air hockey, bowling, stores, things to look at, possibly kosher food nearby - a place with variety).

p.s. Feel free to correct me if you think New Roc City is worth checking out.

I feel ur misinformed, if there's a party then it's noisy so call b4. But it's an amazing afternoon spot!

Not for evenings?

(side note: how common are afternoon dates? [besides for Sundays when I imagine it's really busy])

I like new roc city a lot better than d&b, 1st of all because there's more to do besides arcades (pool bowling go karts etc) 2nd d&b is always loud even if it's completely empty that's just the way the place is. 3rd I have been turned away from d&b bec the girl wasn't 21 (unless u go to long Island but that's a far drive)

personally was not a fan of the circle line date

If your gonna do circle line, do an hour and half max, cause it gets really boring. There's only so long you can discuss scenery for.

Our favorite activity on dates was going to lounges and making other couples on dates feel awkward

+100

There's something about being a dating couple yet doing the date-busting. ;)

Anyone have any ideas for a friend of mine for a 3rd date? He went to 2 hotels and wants to do something now. He's a little bit on the yeshivish side and going out from brooklyn.
