Queen of the Night at Diamond Horseshoe perfectly encapsulates the NYC version of dinner and a show. This immersive theater piece, which takes place in the basement of the Paramount Hotel, is unlike any other. With lots of skin-on-skin contact and audience participation, this is not a dinner experience for the shy. While the acrobatics are phenomenal and the dinner is delightful, there is a huge possibility that you will be taken by one of the cast members to a secret location and subject to an awkward interaction. This exciting, and whole-heartedly liberal experience is perfect for those wanting to interact with their entertainers on a whole new level.

I'm on a seefood diet. I see food, and I eat it.
Play is the newest addition to the Museum of Sex, and it is exactly what you'd expect. Play took sex and made it playful and (somewhat) sophisticated. The bar itself is dimly lit with a gorgeous purple lighting adding to the sultry ambience. The monitors on the walls play suggestive content while phallic shaped decor (including cacti) can be found throughout the lounge. While the cocktails themselves are all quite fancy with utterly provocative names, no one drink can compare to the Pareidolia. Created by Bart Hess, yes the man who designed Lady Gaga's black slime costume, this drink is white, gooey and served on a plate for the customer to lick off. Play is a fun experience, but only for those intrigued, not disgusted, by the openness of sex, and it is by far one of the most unique places to grab a drink in the city.
Midwest girl, love to cook and dine out in NYC!
My boyfriend took my here on one of our first dates, and needless to say, he won the award for most unique date I've ever been on. CAMAJE Bistro, owned by Chef Abigail Hitchcock, is an adorable restaurant that serves French-American cuisine. But, the most intriguing part about the bistro is not the decor or top-notch food, it's the opportunity to have dinner in the dark. Guests are asked to wear blindfolds, which eliminates their sight, but enhances their other senses, creating a heightened food-eating experience. The menu is kept secret until the end of the night, so guests can try to guess what they've been indulging on using only their sense of smell and taste to guide them. While somewhat pricey, dining in the dark is a must-try experience that lets you put your other senses to the test. I absolutely loved it, even though I was a bit hesitant at first. And yes, you do look a little ridiculous in the blindfolds, but that's all a part of the experience.

Crab and mini golf are two rarities in the city, so much so that it's unimaginable that the two could come together to create what is known as Brooklyn Crab. Located just off the Hudson River in Red Hook, this bi-level restaurant is a pleasurably oddity. While eating crab is a fun experience in itself, add buckets of beer and a round of mini golf for an unforgettable meal. While Brooklyn Crab is quite slow during the winter, the lines can get lengthy during the summer, but I definitely think it's worth the wait.
