Top 7 Must-Watch Romantic Movies Set In NYC

Love stories set in the Big Apple are nothing new, but when it comes to choosing a perfect rom-com, these New York-centric tales make the list every time. Just in time for love’s big day, we’ve compiled a guide of must-watch romantic movies set in NYC. And whether you’re single or coupled up, grabbing a bottle of wine and flipping on one of these titles makes for the perfect Valentine’s night in.

West Side Story 

First up is the evergreen musical triumph, West Side Story (1961). Watch as Tony and Maria traipse around 1950s West 68th Street tenements ensnared in forbidden love. Well-known tunes like “I Feel Pretty” and “Jet Song” might necessitate a singing break, while “Somewhere” might even bring out the tissues.

Top 7 Romantic Movies In NYC: West Side Story

United Artists

An Affair to Remember 

Moving on to one of the most classic romantic films of all time, An Affair to Remember (1957) has crystallized the Empire State Building as a meet-up spot for distant lovers in our national lexicon. An irresistible love affair is fraught by existing relationships, but love finds a way to prevail. It’s such a classic that it even inspired the next film in the line-up: Sleepless in Seattle (1993). 

Twentieth Century Fox Entertainment 

Sleepless in Seattle 

While the title tells a different story, the film’s defining moment happens in New York atop the Empire State Building, where an Annie, a writer looking for a romance reminiscent of An Affair to Remember, meets widower Sam. The rest is history.

TriStar Pictures

You’ve Got Mail 

The Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks duo seems to be the magic rom-com ingredient. If a movie marathon is in order, queue up their hit flick You’ve Got Mail (1998) next. It’s a classic love-hate plot of email pen pals who discover that they’re real-life rivals as independent bookstore owners in NYC. Love wins out in the end, proving the duo’s on-screen chemistry once again.

Warner Bros.

New York, I Love You

Moving into the mid-aughts, New York, I Love You (2008) is next. With a title like this, we can’t ignore this compilation of 11 mini plots spread across the entirety of New York City. Multiple directorial styles and a deep line-up of stars — Natalie Portman, Orlando Bloom, Blake Lively and Ethan Hawke — make for an entertaining entanglement of love in the city that never sleeps.

Vivendi Entertainment


Finally, if you’re of the opinion that laughter and love pair perfectly together, turn on Hitch (2005). Will Smith’s role as an NYC dating expert to Kevin James makes for some truly laugh-out-loud scenes. Or opt for a tongue-in-cheek look at modern dating habits with Friends with Benefits (2011). Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake’s friendship heats up, portraying the complications of dating, especially in a city as big and bustling as New York.

7 Unique NYC Valentine's Day Ideas

featured photo: Gaelen Hadlett

Love’s biggest day is just around the corner. Whether you plan on spending it with your significant other or with a new dating-app fling, find the most fitting spot with our guide.

Read on to find out what NYC experiences are sure to make memories that last longer than a dozen roses.

Syndicated: Dinner & A Movie

40 Bogart St, Brooklyn, NY

Arguably the most classic of romantic ventures, dinner and a movie at Syndicated provides an elevated take on the time-tested date night. A hybrid of movie theater, bar and restaurant, the spot boasts a grand dining area serving finely-crafted American fare and cocktails, as well as a 50-seat dine-in cinema. You and yours can cozy up to that flick you’ve been waiting to see, with gourmet popcorn in hand.

Valentine’s Day Comedy

487 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY

What better way to ease the tension of spending February 14 with a new love interest than with laughter? EastVille Comedy Club lets you forgo the romantic candlelit dinner for something a bit more easygoing.

Dine at Buvette

42 Grove St, New York, NY

No one does romance like the French, making a bistro-table for two at NYC’s Buvette the perfect Valentine’s plan. With dishes ranging from the decadent leg of lamb to comfort-food croque monsieurs, and a bar that stays open until 2 a.m., this West Village eatery beckons to couples looking to linger late into the night.

Museum Of Sex

233 Fifth Ave, New York, NY

While admittedly on the nose, a trip to the Museum of Sex can act as the perfect mood-setter for February’s friskiest day. Raunchy yet educational, exhibits like “Superfunland: Journey into the Erotic Carnival” and “Cam Life” offer insightful explorations of human sexuality. While not for the straitlaced, the exhibits and gift shop at MoSex are an alternative take on the traditional date.

New York Open – Quarterfinals

NYCB LIVE, Home of The Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Uniondale, NY

Call in sick and start your weekend early by heading to the New York Open Quarterfinals. You and your significant other can relax while watching doubles square off all afternoon. While they might be avoiding that “love” score, as spectators on V-day you certainly won’t be.

Bathtub Gin

132 Ninth Ave, New York, NY

Sipping on something strong in a speakeasy feels entirely fitting for 2020. A decade post-Prohibition, getting fast and loose at Bathtub Gin is just as thrilling. Cozy up to a custom drink and each other in the shadowy, opulent space.

Valentine’s Day Singles Penthouse Party

7 East 36th Street, New York, NY

Not to fret if the only thing missing on Valentine’s Day is a significant other. The Singles Penthouse Party breaks the ice for you with cocktails, dancing and no shortage of prospects. Bring a friend or show up solo dressed to impress, and maybe Cupid’s arrow will fly.
