In 1960s New York, Alan Stillman was presented with a problem. He couldn’t meet eligible singles who lived on the East Side of Manhattan. Most cocktail parties were by invitation and traditional bars were just full of men. Stillman had an idea of opening a restaurant that recreates the comfortable cocktail party atmosphere and meet the numerous single models, airline stewardesses, secretaries, and other single women that lived in his neighborhood.
With $10,000 dollars, Stillman purchased a bar he frequently visited at the corner of 63rd Street and First Avenue. He renamed it T.G.I. Fridays and revamped the menu to include American cuisine, alcoholic beverages, and bar food. Form its opening in 1965, the restaurant already had its staple 1890s nostalgia decor with Tiffany lamps, striped tablecloths, and Bentwood chairs. The staff wore candy striped shirts. All the young would gather and sing happy birthday to any client. T.G.I. Fridays would become the first singles bar. It frequently promoted ladies’ night. Stillman achieved his dream.
