We've danced on tables, played beer pong with frat guys at the 13th Step, made out with frat guys at the 13th Step, stumbled into cabs after spending the night treating vodka soda like a precious resource that might run out at any moment. We've had our fun. But as soon as the clock struck 30, it's safe to say our taste in "fun" has evolved.
If you, like us, are seeking good cocktails sans college kids, lively atmospheres without the binge drinking, and sophisticated singles who don't still have Greek letters in their Instagram bio, you've come to the right place. We asked our fellow 30-something New Yorkers for their favorite grownup spots in the city and their recs decidedly do not disappoint. As for that 30-something hangover? Well, we can't help you there.
