Go for the corporate honchos

Manhattan’s economy is overwhelmingly concentrated on white-collar jobs with the corporate and advertising sectors making up some of the best-paid sectors. An overwhelming majority of Fortune 500 companies in the country have their headquarters in Manhattan. In fact five of the top eight global advertising agencies are headquartered in this borough.

Browse through the art district

Not all rich men enjoy spending a Sunday afternoon at the golf course. If you browse through the famous art galleries of Manhattan, you might even come across a couple of art aficionados who have the means to take home some of the works on display. So keep aside a sunny day to ramble through the exclusive art galleries of Chelsea and Soho or check out the offerings at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Frick Collection and the Whitney Museum of American Art. Here however you would need to dig into your powers of observation to weed out the average Joe from the wealthy collector and patron of the art world.

Attend exclusive cultural events

Apart from being the nerve center of the financial industry of New York City, Manhattan is also the hub of cultural activities in the city. But if you are looking to attract the richest dates, it would not do to take a stroll along the theater district or wander around the Times Square. Rather find out about exclusive shows at Broadway or movie premiers at some of the priciest theater halls in the area like Ziegfeld Theater or the AMC Lowes and then make it a point to attend them. Not only will you get to meet the glitterati of the city but in the post premiere cocktails, you can actually chat up a few single millionaires from them.

Upscale Hang-outs

As the premier financial and recreational destination of New York, Manhattan has a multitude of upscale bars and pubs. In fact you may have a difficult time trying to decide which of the several wine bars, sports bars, whiskey, sushi or lounge bars to visit. Some of the bars which you might include in your list are the King Cole’s Bar for its exclusive clientele, Megu for its dramatic interiors and posh patrons and the Milk and Honey, a discreet invitations-only bar on the Lower East Side whose famous cocktails seems to have been attracting a far wider clientele now. However if you don’t mind seeing a little skin Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club is another destination where you might come across rich single men looking to have a good time.

Fashionable Nightlife

Manhattan is famous for its colorful nightlife and the array of dance clubs and discos which cater to every pocket and taste in music. The Meatpacking District, East Village and the Lower East Side have some of the hottest dance scenes in Manhattan. However instead of wasting your time and money just about anywhere, try to frequent those destinations which are famous for their style quotient as much as for their prices and thus most likely to attract the richest patrons. The Touch with a total of five bars has a long list of impressive clients while Dylan Murphy’s in Upper East Side attract those fond of a more neighborly hangout and especially traditional Irish food and drink. For a purely dance scene, check out Columbus 72, the Saloon and the Marquee for its chic and trendy crowd. You're certain to find many single rich men in Manhattan.

Expensive Restaurants

Fine dining establishments are yet another popular place to come across men who have both the money and the taste to enjoy the good things of life. Addresses like the Le Cirque and Nobu are of course renowned all over the world for their exclusive offerings and month-long waiting lists. Casa Lever, Becco and Puttanesca are among those which offer the best Italian fare together with an experience in luxury dining. However the thing to remember with such exclusive dining destinations is that it may not always be easy to get a reservation and even when you manage to make an entry, you may find most of the male guests in company. Don’t let that get you down; you can always order a dessert or wait at the bar with a cocktail till an opportunity for an introduction comes along.

Affluent neighborhoods

If you can afford it, go for a pad in an affluent neighborhood in Manhattan. Being a familiar figure in the community will open up more chances of coming across the rich single men in Manhattan. Some of the wealthiest residential places in Manhattan are Tribeca, Upper East Side, Gramercy Park, Madison Square Park and Lower Manhattan. So keep your wits about you and your fingers crossed since you may never know who you might meet in ‘money makin’ Manhattan’.
