    Here's All The Bars "Dating Around" Filmed At In Brooklyn, So You Can Enjoy Them Too

    Inspiration from Netflix for your next first date.

    If you've tuned in to the Netflix series Dating Around, you've likely noticed the colorful and gorgeous bars and restaurants that the dates take place in.

    Netflix

    And if you're like me, you had to know where they were! So I reached out to Netflix to confirm the locations and highlighted each below — complete with reviews from people on Yelp who have actually been there. If you end up going to one of these Brooklyn spots, let us know in the comments!

    First up is Samui, the Asian-Fusion restaurant where Luke's dates occurred in episode one.

    Netflix

    Location: 15 Vanderbilt Ave

    Brooklyn, New York 11205

    b/t Park Ave & Flushing Ave

    Price range: $$$

    People on Yelp love the decor of both the building and the restaurant's interior.

    Netflix

    "The outside is so funky, it definitely is eye-catching and commands your curiosity to go in to find out what this place is all about. And when you do, the inside will astound you. It is gorgeous - exposed brick, high ceilings, beautiful lay out of tables with fresh flowers and candles on each of them. The decor I'm not really quite sure of, seems a lil Bohemian, Asian, the decor is definitely fusion." — Yasmin R.

    There are some rave reviews about the bar and food menu, too.

    Netflix

    "Their bar menu will make you feel like you're sipping a drink on an island. Quite a few tropical choices but not like the overly sweet cocktails at those cheesy resorts." — Kim A.

    But is it a good date spot?

    Netflix

    Yelpers say yes! According to Chastity M., "The space is so beautiful and intimate for couples . I would def come back to my with man because of the space and the service." And Michelle S. advises, "Bring your date here, seriously. This restaurant gives off such romantic vibes and they literally put FLOWER PETALS in my food."

    Next up was Gurki's date on The Tillary Rooftop.

    Netflix

    Location: 85 Flatbush Ave Ext

    Brooklyn, New York 11201

    Price range: $$

    First off, the Tillary rooftop is a part of the Tillary hotel.

    Netflix

    I, too, was confused about the futuristic space-like hallway they were walking through, but it makes more sense if it's the entrance to a hotel.

    There's a cute-but-small bar where you can sit and order drinks.

    Netflix

    This is at their upstairs rooftop bar, which is separate from the downstairs bar that Mila's date in episode six.

    But the real reason people love this place is the outdoor beer garden.

    Netflix

    "Gorgeous outdoor bar space in Brooklyn, right on the Manhattan Bridge. The bar is nicely stocked: cocktails plus great beer and wine. And they have respect for the beer: the right glasses for a Carlsburg are hard to find." — Shana L.

    But, buyer beware: there are some not-so-glowing reviews on Yelp, too.

    Netflix

    Maxine Q. put it this way: "If you want to stay somewhere that blares incredibly loud hip hop in the beer garden all day and into evening, then have I got the place for you. If not, I suggest you avoid at all costs."

    But is it a good date spot?

    Netflix

    Couldn't tell, but probably? There were zero mentions about dates anywhere on Yelp, though Wanda M. wrote that she "came here with a friend during the playoffs to watch the game on the rooftop" and had enjoyed herself.

    The cute mason jar lights speak for themselves, though.

    Netflix

    Lex's dates were at Baron's, a uniquely colorful bar in Bed Stuy.

    Netflix

    Location: 564 Dekalb Ave

    Brooklyn, NY 11205

    Price range: $$

    People like the bar for its cool vibe, ambiance, and farm-to-table food.

    Netflix

    "This place is such a hidden gem. Being on a side street, we didn't even realize it was in the neighborhood until we walked past it on accident one evening. I wish we had discovered it so much sooner! The ambiance is some of the best in the neighborhood, if you ask me. Very cool decor and interiors, and the quality of the food and drinks is a notch above a lot of our neighborhood places (all of which I still love!)." — Alexis R.

    Barron's bar has a great happy hour and even a discount if you check-in on Yelp.

    Netflix

    People rave about the bar — and the discounts. Take it from Genie M.: "Happy hour specials are served at the table as well as the bar. Cocktails were $5 off. When you check in with Yelp, you receive a complimentary glass of wine. Beer choices were cool with me, Prohibition, Montauk and Founders ale were a few of my favorites and all on tap."

    People also love the food.

    Netflix

    Baisa L. raved in her review, saying: "A GEM. This restaurant was, simply put, amazing. The service, the ambiance, the music, the decor- the FOOD. Oh my God- the FOOD! The flavor was nothing short of mind blowing. I haven't enjoyed a meal like that in many years. The drinks were also delicious. I literally can not wait to come back here. I'd give this location 10 stars if I could."

    But is it a good date spot?

    Netflix

    According to MANY Yelp reviews, yes. Ben T. said "Took a date and it definitely impressed her, so it won big with me as well. Farm to table food was so incredible." Akilah H. puts it best when she said, "the music is good, the vibe is awesome, and it is a great date night spot. I wish they'd pay me to say this since I keep spending money here, but it's really just that dope."

    Leonard's date was at Le Barricou.

    Netflix

    Location: 533 Grand St

    Brooklyn, NY 11211

    Price range: $$

    The Williamsburg establishment is known for its brunch.

    Netflix

    Seriously, the reviews are plentiful! Autumn S.'s review of their pancakes makes my mouth water while reading it:

    "When the food came my mouth nearly hit the table, my eyes locked onto my friend's pancakes - the fluff on that thing instantly made me regret my order. Her pancakes looked so good, nicely browned, fluffy with fruit on top. My French Toast looked amazing too but I have never saw pancakes this thick in my life. She offered me a piece and I could not resist and let me tell you, I was about to order pancakes to go for myself but I stopped myself from being greedy. The pancakes really do taste amazing, so far they are the best I have ever had. The French Toast too tasted wonderful, it was two soft but crispy challah breads with fruit on top and side of syrup."

    The classic French ambiance is beloved by its patrons.

    Netflix

    April M. said, "e were immediately taken aback by the ambiance of the restaurant and the old French classics playing quietly in the background. The entire experience reminded me of being in France again."

    But is it a good date spot?

    Netflix

    Yes! John B. says "It's a good spot for a date and escape the craziness of the rest of Williamsburg." Plus, who doesn't love a classic French ambiance on a date?

    For more info, check out Le Barricou's website.

    Sarah's date was at Lighthouse, a bar on the south side of Williamsburg.

    Netflix

    Location: 533 Grand St

    Brooklyn, NY 11211

    Price range: $$

    People like the food, brunch options, open windows and outdoor seating areas.

    Netflix

    "Huge windows make it easy and fun to people watch, as well as let in tons of light, which is wonderful in the middle of February." — Perry T.

    "The space is super laid back but exciting and I love all the outdoor seating. Because I went on a warm night, all the floor to ceiling windows were open so even sitting inside felt like we were outside." — Isabel G.

    Overall, people think the place is pleasant and/or cool.

    Netflix

    From Liz S.: "While not necessarily a destination dining situation, I would be happy to widely recommend it as it's easy to reserve, food is well-executed, and the space feels like a party without being insufferable. It's overall just so pleasant that it becomes the platonic ideal of a Williamsburg restaurant."

    But is it a good date spot?

    Netflix

    Yes, but make sure you make reservations. It can get crowded, and there are lots of complaints on Yelp about it. Connie L. has more on that and the weird chairs (?): "Highly recommend making a reservation since it's always packed and the bar seating has a weird chair height to bar height ratio. Also, it does get a bit loud."

    For more info, check out Lighthouse's website.

    And finally, Mila's episode took place at The Tillary Downstairs Restaurant.

    Netflix

    Location: 85 Flatbush Ave Ext

    Brooklyn, New York 11201

    Price range: $$

    You might already recognize that it's the same venue as Gurki's date earlier in the season, but instead of the Tillary Hotel's rooftop, it was filmed in their downstairs bar.

    Netflix

    According to Yelp, the downstairs bar is a recent addition to the hotel.

    The decor and lighting of the restaurant are obviously eye candy.

    Netflix

    And apparently when you stay at the hotel itself, you're given drink vouchers for the bar here. Bonus!

    That said, Yelp reviewers say it can be hard to find.

    Netflix

    Farish S. said, "For visitors who use car share apps it can be difficult to find address."

    But is it a good date spot?

    Netflix

    "The drinks at the bar on the 2nd floor were good and affordable. Plus they have some family style games for you to play. Super cute." — Shar D. Cheap drinks and fun games? Sounds pretty good for a first date to me!
