The hipster girl image is everywhere now, making it hard to find an authentic hipster girl–you know, the real deal.
A cute hipster girl can often be spotted based on fashion alone. Think Urban Outfitters and American Apparel, with a little bit of thrift store charm thrown into the mix.
But don’t be fooled by everyone wearing high-waisted jeans and black, thick-rimmed glasses.
Urban Dictionary defines hipsters as:
A subculture of men and women typically in their 20’s and 30’s that value independent thinking, counter-culture, progressive politics, an appreciation of art and indie-rock, creativity, intelligence, and witty banter.”
In other words, a hipster girl is a cool girl–one who’s really into art, music, fashion, and pop-culture. But unlike most girls that you may be used to, the cute hipster girl you’re searching for is probably into trends and music you’ve never heard of.
This typically intimidates guys who don’t have many hipster friends, because it can feel like every cute hipster girl is speaking a different language.
Hipster girls want the same things normal girls want. There’s nothing different about them.
And once you learn a little more about their world, you’ll be able to unlock some easy ways to meet hipster girls.
Hipster Girls Vs. Normal Girls: 3 Ways to Tell The Difference
Since hipster fashion is so popular, telling the difference between fake hipster girls and real hipster girls can be a little bit of a challenge.
So, how can you tell if a girl is a hipster? Well, one easy test is to ask her–though it’s a little risky.
If she responds positively, she’s probably not a hipster and just wants to be.
And if she says “no” or seems offended, she may very well be a hipster.
If you don’t want to run the risk of offending her, though, here are a few quick ways to easily tell if she’s a hipster:
1) Ask For The Name of Her Favorite Band
Asking her about the music she likes is one of the quickest ways to spot a true hipster girl from a fraud.
Have you heard of one of the bands she mentions? If so, move on–this girl is not a hipster.
If she struggles between a few obscure bands or really finds the question impossible to answer, on the other hand, she’s almost definitely a hipster.
2) Pay Attention to Her Style
Is her hair intricately braided, but disheveled at the same time?
Do the colors in her hair not make a whole lot of sense?
Does it kinda look like she just rolled out of bed?
She’s probably a hipster.
While hipsters love expressing their own creative style, they’re also pretty laid-back in their approach. If it looks like it took her hours to put her style together or she looks way too put together, she’s probably not a hipster and just loves the fashion.
This can be as simple as hanging around record stores and talking to the staff about up-and-coming artists, or checking out local art shows and learning some local artists’ names.
Other easy hobbies that attract hipster girls include trying craft beers, checking out locally roasted coffee houses, shopping at small farmer’s markets, and shopping at flea markets or thrift stores.
Checking out the local music scene in your district is another great way to figure out what bands hipster girls like and which ones to avoid.
It’s also a good opportunity to watch hipster girls in action to learn more about what they’re interested in.
If you’re more into food, check out tiny dive bars and eateries, from obscure restaurants to vegan joints.
Hipster girls love trying different foods, and many of them are into local, organic and vegetarian restaurants. Trying them out for yourself is a great way to learn more about the things hipster girls love.
3 Original Ways to Impress a Hipster Girl
Winning over a hipster girl isn’t as hard as it may seem. After all, they have the same wants and needs as other girls.
According to The Awl (a popular blog that many hipster girls read), hipster girls are just looking for someone who is:
Cute, smart, funny, won’t be too much of a jerk and is at least familiar with the discography of Matt and Kim.”
In short, hipster girls are just like every other girl–just with more selective tastes in music and art.
To help you out, I’ve compiled a few easy tips for how to win over any hipster girl.
This neighborhood bar is unpretentious and cool as hell.
One female Yelp reviewer called it “the perfect spot for a first date,” so it’s a great place to hop on Tinder (or Pokemon Go) and see who’s around.
But even if you’re dateless, this place is never short of beautiful hipster chicks — and on the weekends, it’s filled with single hipster girls who just want a casual hookup.
Alphaville is a little divier than The Three Diamond Door, but the prices are right — and it’s one of the main hipster chick hangouts in Bushwick.
On top of that, there’s a venue inside the bar, so you could strike up a conversation about the show…
Or just ask about her taste in music…
And if all else fails, the bar snacks are solid — and every hipster girl has to have her snacks.
If you do go here, don’t make it on a weekend. It gets overly crowded, so Mondays and Thursdays are your best bets for finding single hipster girls who could use some company.
c) Gotham City Lounge
Gotham City Lounge is a pillar in the Bushwick bar scene — and because it’s been around for a while, you’ll only find laid-back, down-to-earth hipster chicks here.
This is also a great place to channel your nerdy side a little more. The bar is comic book-themed, and on top of that it has games — what hipster girl can say no to a nerdy game?
So if you want an easy, no-stress night, check this place out (especially if you’re into nerdy girls like me).
And for more bars in Bushwick, just check out Yelp. There are a ton of options I didn’t mention, like The Boobie Trap — it’s got board games and a great happy hour.
2) Mercury Lounge
The Mercury Lounge is a no-frills venue in the Lower East Side. It’s been around since the ‘90s and has survived the transformation of the Manhattan neighborhood…
Which means you’ll find both the seasoned hipsters and the younger hipster crowd there.
The vibe is sort of like “your friend’s basement,” but that makes everything more casual — and everyone more friendly.
So don’t be surprised if a hipster chick walks up to YOU here. The music might be loud, but you can invite her to a bar nearby (like The Library Bar, for example) for a drink afterward.
For a small, intimate spot to vibe with girls while listening to local and up-and-coming bands, this is a can’t-miss.
3) Concert Listings on Brooklyn Vegan
Brooklyn Vegan has arguably the most comprehensive concert listings in NYC…
So you can bet your a– hipster chicks check it on a daily basis.
The website offers a “What’s Going on Today in NYC?” section, so you don’t have to plan in advance — you can hop on the website on a Friday afternoon and find a concert for that night that’ll be brimming with hipster chicks.
But you should be careful with where you choose to go. The larger venues, like Madison Square Garden, will have fewer hipster chicks than venues like Rough Trade or Music Hall of Williamsburg.
And if music isn’t your thing, Brooklyn Vegan also lists comedy shows, so you can find a quirky girl with a good sense of humor if that’s more your thing.
No matter what day of the week it is, Brooklyn Vegan’s got your back — but there are still two more spots to go…
4) The Brooklyn Flea
Flea markets are generally good places to pick up hipster chicks, but the Brooklyn Flea is definitely the best.
There are locations all over Brooklyn, so you don’t have to go too out of your way to check one out (you can find locations accessible from the L, G, and F trains, just to name a few).
On top of that, there are different kinds of flea markets, so you can get even more specific with the type of hipster girl you want.
For example, in Fort Greene you’ll find the flea’s flagship location, which features over 150 vendors — so you’ve got a huge variety of hipster women there.
But in Williamsburg, you’ve got Smorgasburg, which is more food-focused — so there you’ll mostly find the hipster chick foodies.
Even better, flea markets are a very low-pressure situation.
You can just browse the vendors, taking your time and interacting with whoever you want.
You can even “warm up” a little bit on the vendors themselves — try asking about the origin of a shirt or where a specific trinket came from.
And if you see a hipster hottie checking something out, walk up to her and act interested in whatever it is she’s looking at — you’ll get her attention and have something to talk to her about!
Hipster girls come to flea markets wanting to talk to people and learn more, so every girl there is already feeling open. And once you show up, there’s a good chance she’ll be open to you.
5) The Williamsburg Waterfront
This is a prime location for hipster hotties while the sun is out and the weather is nice.
Just take the L train to Bedford Ave for some great views and a place to chill right on the water.
Plus, what’s a more romantic setting to spark up some conversation with a bikini-wearing hipster goddess?
On top of that, it’s f—ing Williamsburg — you’re bound to find hipsters wherever you go. And a lot of the hipster girls who hang here are financially well-off, so you won’t have to worry about her getting with you for your wallet.
If you want to get the most out of your visit, make sure you go on a weekend. On Saturdays and Sundays, hipster girls from all over NYC come out to play on the Williamsburg waterfront.
And if you’re more interested in the bar scene or want to do something afterward, check out Lucky Dog or Union Pool nearby.
Pro tip: If you have a dog, bring it with you — hipster girls love dudes with dogs.
And once you know where to go, there’s only one thing left to cover…
