Our team of Executive Matchmakers here at LunchDates curated a 2023 Exclusive’s List of the Top 10 Places in Boston for Eligible Singles to Frequent based on a recent survey. Whether you feel more comfortable in the nook of a coffee shop or centered in the scene of Boston nightlife, we’re tipping you off to make your journey to Love even more intentional.

Because they’re esthetic, babe.
The ladies are here for the Gram.
Whether you’re waiting for a table or want to post at one of the sprawling bars after a meal – there’s plenty of space and opportunity to meet new people. And when you see a struggling pack of women trying to capture Ladies Night with a stiff, one-armed selfie, volunteer to take that picture.
Not all heroes wear capes – and this one gets your foot in the door to start a conversation (as long as their body language is open to that conversation).
May the odds be ever in your favor.
Not one to battle the social scene? We’ve got you!
After all, women’s guards are up more at a bar than a coffee shop. Whether they’re studying for an exam or on break from the corporate grind, nobody is going to label you a Creep for asking, “What’s good here?”
Shoot your shot. Or just order one.
Brunchin’ at Lincoln? Taco Tuesday at Loco? Capo Basement (The Supper Club) for some live music and drinks? Southie is the Capital of mixing and mingling. If you’re up for the crowds, this could be your place.
Insert *Enjoys long, romantic walks with my dog* to dating profile.
Let’s face it. Initiating a conversation with a cute stranger isn’t in everyone’s wheelhouse. But you know what isn’t awkward? Stopping to pet (compliment) a cute dog. If you want to make a dog owner gush, ask them questions about their furry pride and joy and watch their guard come right down.
Looking for a nightcap or a place to unwind at quittin’ time? From Bostonia Public House to Roxannes and even The Fed at The Langham, these spots are known for after-work drinks and bites.
With its collection of local, independently owned businesses, cafes and art shops and a courtyard full of open seating, Bow Market is the place of all places. Stroll through a full service record store or kick back at the brewery. It’s buzzing with charm and potential suitors.
Joining a fitness community is a great way to not only make new friends, but it’s also an ideal place to meet like-minded individuals with similar goals. Set a routine, create new habits, and stay with those new year, new me resolutions, and watch familiar faces go from “gym friends” to– well, who knows?
We’ll leave that part up to you.

In winter, it is an artisan-driven igloo bar and by summer, nothing more than one of the most spectacular (panoramic) views of the city scape reflecting off the harbor before you in Boston’s Innovation District. Regardless of season, this roof deck is the place to be.
It sets the mood for romance, too.
This (heated) rooftop has transformed for the winter season with gondolas, chair lifts, and ski-themed Adirondack chairs, though it certainly offers room for year-round mingling on its spacious terrace. Similar to Lookout Rooftop, this even more intimate setting comes with a slightly different view of the city and an indoor terrace for those not willing to brave the outdoors this time of year.
