Have you ever walked into a bar and felt so out of place you instantly wanted to leave? Fairfield County can be a tricky place when seeking a night scene for a specific age group. Here, we've taken out the guesswork, check out one of these local hot spots where you can socialize with people your own age.

If you're in your 20’s…

Gingerman (Norwalk and Greenwich) Don’t feel like wearing sequins and silhouettes out this Saturday night? A clean pair of jeans and a nice shirt is the norm at Gingerman. With over 50 draught beers and an impressive wine list, you’ll be sure to enjoy a candle lit conversation with a new friend, and your feet and wallet will be comfortable doing so.

Black Bear (Norwalk and Stamford) There’s no better place for twenty-somethings to meet singles, dance, and take advantage of great drink specials then at Black Bear Saloon. With a fast paced bar, dance and local, live music, and trivia and karaoke nights, you’ll forget all about the awkwardness of dating and just have a down right fun time.

 

If you're in your 30’s…

Barcelona (Fairfield) Nestled in the Easton woods and conveniently located right off the Merritt Parkway, Barcelona Fairfield is perfect for the classy 30’s crowd. Away from a large strip of noisy clubs and sticky bar floors, Barcelona is the perfect place to grab a glass of wine and get to know other singles in a private, leather booth or on the low key, outdoor patio. Don’t forget to order a glass of their famous Sangria!

bartaco (Westport and Stamford) A mix between Abercrombie and a Latin beach party, bartaco is a great place to meet singles in the Stamford or Westport area. Don’t be afraid to wear white pants after Labor Day or open toe shoes in February. The SoCal ambience, crisp mojitos, and spicy tapas, will help you warm up to any perspective lover, even in the dead of winter.

Brennan’s Tap Room (Norwalk) Whether you’re a girl who loves sports or a guy looking for a girl who loves sports, Brennan’s Tap Room is the perfect place for you to meet the perfect girl/guy. Wear jeans and sneakers to take in a game on one of the large screens and enjoy one of their great drink deals, like a $10 Bud Light pitchers or $3 Coors Light bottle. For all of those looking for that cool, hipster, musician type, Brennan’s will be packed with them on open mic nights, or live music weekends. 

 

If you're in your 40's +…

The Spotted Horse (Westport) Nestled on a quiet, downtown, Westport side street, The Spotted Horse retains the historic charm of the building it is housed in. Dark floors, dim lighting and a chic, intimate bar, The Spotted Horse is a great way to meet singles over a sophisticated martini or a plate of delicious comfort food.

Cava Wine Bar (New Canaan) Everyone’s fantasy is to take a trip to Tuscany and fall in love with a beautiful Italian. Well, Cava Wine Bar may be your closest chance to doing so in Fairfield County. Calm, cool and intimate, you can’t go wrong ordering off the menu of fresh pastas, brick oven pizzas and quality meats and seafood. So, put on your best pair of Italian leather shoes and walk in the door with confidence and charm, and hey, you may even run away with a beautiful European yet! 

The Goose (Darien) This winter, stay warm and friendly by the open fireplace at The Goose Bistro and Bar. The newly renovated tavern is the perfect place to meet singles looking for a bite to eat or a place to warm up with a drink and a relaxing date. Wear you’re best casual outfit and go get quackin’ at The Goose! Oh, don’t forget your dancing shoes! The live music is sure to get anyone out of their seats and moving!
