Date ideas in New York City

Your guide to spending time with the one you love in one of the most romantic cities in the world.

Take a trip to the top of the Empire State Building
Classic love stories never go out of style. Channel An Affair to Remember and Sleepless in Seattle by meeting or bringing date to the 86th or 102nd floor observatories in this New York City landmark for unforgettable views and great photo ops.

Take a private helicopter tour over New York City.  
If you want to go all out to celebrate your love, see the city with a helicopter tour that will take your breath away. Marvel at all of  the sights from above as your tour guide shares interesting information with you. If you’re planning on proposing, a helicopter tour is an unforgettable place to pop the question, unless your intended is afraid of heights, of course!

Take in some live music. 
Music lovers have endless options for shows in New York. The Beacon Theatre has a variety of shows on the calendar, and The National has weekly live music sessions, to name just a couple.

Take a fitness class together.
Nothing gets the heart racing like a good workout. The Benjamin has partnered with SIN Workouts for a luxury fitness experience, the perfect way to prep for an indulgent dinner later in the day. Stretch out and unwind with yoga or get your sweat on with something a little more intense, then steam your sore muscles away in the steam room.

Cozy up with a great hotel package.
Whether you’re visiting for a long weekend, or just a night, a hotel package is a simple way of having an unforgettable experience. Booking a room or suite at The Benjamin gives you the city at your door step, with no need to leave the building if you decide not to. From reading with room service or movies to spa appointments to The National Sessions live music on Sunday, the hotel offers plenty to keep you occupied, with the option to do nothing at all.
