Being single in Carmel is certainly not an issue. There are endless activities to participate in, single or in a group of people.
Mundaka Pintxos, a restaurant offering that typical tapas tradition was built with the sense of offering a large social component to the restaurant. Go alone and meet someone you have never met before, go with a group of pals and have a good night, or take a first or second (or third!) date there. You are guaranteed to have a good time.
The Starlight Lounge offers a similar feel to Mundaka, though with more of an Italian background to its cuisine. Starlight Lounge resides atop a roof patio, and it offers cocktails, dancing, and appetizers–all situated around a fire pit. Sip a drink, taste some pizza, and catch someone’s eye.
If you are the kind of person who is drawn toward more structure than casually running into someone in a bar or restaurant, there is a Monterey Peninsula Social Club. The club has over one thousand members, and plenty of upcoming meetings to partake in. The social club focuses on introducing Monterey Peninsula residents to one another for friendship, or perhaps more. If you are a fan of building community ties, it is definitely the group for you.
