Get a day (and night) of vinyl
Nothing sets the mood like some good vinyl, so why not spend the day checking out some of the city’s diverse selection of vinyl shops together, like Balades Sonores, Souffle Continu, L’International Records, and Walrus, which even has a bar! You can pick out a record or à deux and then play them late into the night.
Cozy up over a chocolat chaud
Cuddle up in a corner with steaming hot chocolate. You can go classic and visit Flore, Angelina, or Ladurée, or a little more modern at Jean-Paul Hévin, where the hot chocolates are customizable. Then there's always Un Dimanche à Paris, where there is a salon, as well as an entire concept store devoted to chocolate.
Score oysters and cheap wine
Aren’t those two things what a good date is made of? On Sundays at Le Baron Rouge you can do exactly that, drinking wine from the barrel and enjoying salty oysters with the neighborhood crowd.
Tango on the Seine
Save this one for summer -- but when the nights are warm, dance groups gather for Argentine tango and couples seductively dance in the Parisian twilight.
Forget traditional French gastronomie, and have your dinner paired with beer
Paris has long ignored beer in favor of wine, but that is starting to change. Craft beer bar La Fine Mousse also runs a resto around the corner, which has a traditional French tasting menu, but it's all planned around different beers.
Make time for aperitivo
Head to Lockwood in the early evening for the bar’s Italian-style aperitivo; with your craft cocktail you also get a free buffet of appetizers to choose from. There’s always some kind of charcuterie, cornichons, and tasty spread to go on toasted slices of baguette. After aperitivo is over, the downstairs bar opens up, which means you can finish off the evening in style, before heading off to do other third date business.
Go to a speakeasy
While Paris doesn’t really have actual speakeasies, the city does love its hidden bars. For a date, you can't go wrong with the Experimental Cocktail Club and Candelaria.
