Best Place For A First Date

The Economy Shoe Shop

"We’ve got great ambience,” says Victor Syperek, “and lots of intimate corners where you can tuck yourselves away; either to be alone, or to sit and people watch.” The low lighting is sexy and the setting is private—with an option for entertainment, if things start going downhill. Factor in the plentiful, affordable food and drink and you’re all set. In 2005, Haligonians agree that if you head to the Shoe Shop for a first date, the night will be a success, even if the date isn’t.
