Mentioned once in a Playboy list of the 100 Best Singles Bars in America, Rumors maintains its reputation as a happy hunting ground for businessmen on the prowl. This midtown night club remains the epicenter of the singles scene, a hothouse for those in their twenties seeking same. The look: Everything from Tommy Hilfiger sweaters to pressed golf shirts and jeans. Also cool: showing up in a limo rented for the evening by you and your club-hopping posse.
The bar and menu selections (buffalo wings, burgers, steaks and 13 different beers) are sufficient, if uninspiring, but the environment more than compensates. During the warm season, the outdoor patio on the corner of 19th and M streets fills up quickly. Once the colder weather sets in, the split-level upper bar is the prime locale, overlooking a mirrored dance floor energized by a Top-40 DJ. The lower bar is adjacent to the restaurant seating and also offers a view of the patio and passersby. And for sports fans, a half-dozen televisions guarantee at least some night-time action.
