10 Rooftop Restaurants Perfect For Summer Date Nights
You know what’s more difficult than asking someone out? Planning the perfect date! And gone are the days when it was all on the guy to do everything. If you like the guy, go tell him, pick out a restaurant, and have the time of your life.
For me, rooftop restaurants are synonymous to romance. Sunsets, good food, a few drinks, conversations, and a sky full of stars (okay, a few stars) — what’s not to like?
Plus, most restaurants that are on the terrace, out in the open, play toned-down music that set the ideal atmosphere for a heart-to-heart chat. Literally, dine like you are on top of the world and it helps that you’re already high. Get it?
And if something goes wrong, you can always throw him off the terrace. Just saying.
