How To Meet A British Guy In New York (updated with new option)

Heather & Eleanor write:

Guy,

My flat-mate and I came across your blog because we were hoping to find out where the cute british ex-pats hang out. Please, if you'd be so kind, make a post of it soon (a user's guide if you will) or respond to us directly if you like. Thanks!

Hmmm....

Cute and British.... a difficult combination.

Option 1: Pubs showing soccer
When: Saturday or Sunday lunch times
Type: All sorts of guys from all walks of life with a few American soccer fans too.
Chances of conversation: Let's just watch the game shall we love
Chances of attention: Apart from a couple of soccer crazy a-sexual girls you will be center of attention everytime the ball goes out of play.
Suggestions: Red Lion, One on One, Nevada Smiths

Option 2: Irish / Pub-Bars
When: Most of the week
Type: Young expats, tourists.
Chances of conversation: Likely.
Chances of attention: Catch them when they pop out for a cigarette
Suggestions: Brass Monkey, One on One, Nevada Smiths

Option 3: Brooklyn Bars
When: Weekend inc. afternoons in bar gardens when sunny
Type: Brits who have been here too long: fashion designers / guys who have outstayed their visa 7 years
Chances of conversation: If you catch them out of their clique
Chances of attention: Possible, but don't come across all American
Suggestions: Boat House, Moes, any other bar in Cobble Hill

Option 4: Soho Bars
When: Weekends
Type: Tourists and guys who work there.
Chances of conversation: Good, if early
Chances of attention: It's a small bar, love - you might get missed.
Suggestions: The Room, Cafe Noir, Ear and the like

Option 5: Posh Bars
When: All week
Type: Arrogant dandies with some cash.
Chances of conversation: If you're interesting, transatlantic, monied and up for it
Chances of attention: Use of elbow may be required
Suggestions: Hiro, Soho House, roof deck at Thompson Hotel, APT, Tribeca Grand (party night), any art / fashion party sponsored by A Brit Co.

Option 6: Dens
When: Late night, late week
Type: Trendies, hipsters, scenesters. Alcoholics all of them.
Chances of conversation: They're up for anything. If it's an adventure.
Chances of attention: Buy them a drink, play them at pool or dance in the corner with them and see.
Suggestions: Nu Blu, Passer By, The Hole, 151 Rivington, Orchard St bars, Von.

For a guide to some of these bars, you could check out my other blog site.

re How to meet english guys?

Become a regular patron at the british food store "Myers of Keswick" in the West Village, and then ask the guys who work there where the best places are! :)
