Comedy Connection - Dress up. Comedy Connection isn't necessarily "formal," per se, but it's sexy and sleek; this is the kind of place where if you're dressed like a tool, you'll stick out like a sore thumb.

(207) 775-2885
6 Pine St
Portland, ME
Blackstone's - They could have easily filmed a scene from "Sex in the City" here. With its posh décor and sexy, dimly-lit interior, Blackstone's makes for a killer date spot. Located at [Address], it's a little classier than the pub down the corner.

George's Tavern
(207) 773-9230
189 Congress St
Portland, ME
George's Tavern - Happy hour never looked so good. George's Tavern, located at [Address] caters to an anxious after-work crowd but once the drinks start coming, the ties start getting loose.
