Dating in Denver: The Best Destinations for Romance

Dating in Denver: The Best Destinations for Romance

From a first date with a new beau to a special night after decades of marriage, keeping dating interesting can be a little difficult. Luckily, the Mile-High City is full of possibilities, boasting a little something for everyone. Here’s how to make the most of your date night in Denver.

Hit a Renowned Restaurant

As a city fit for foodies, there’s always somewhere delicious to try in Denver. From the Parisian-inspired To The Wind to the pan-Asian Cherry Creek hot spot Departure, there’s no better city for adventurous dining. Want a drink after dining? Cocktail bars like Williams & Graham and Green Russell provide an experience you can’t miss.

Rent a Boat

Denver is a city known for outdoor excitement, and a little boating is a wonderful way to enjoy a beautiful day. With plenty of options – City Park, Washington Park, and the Aurora Reservoir all rent boats for a few hours of fun – an afternoon picnic and paddle can provide plenty of opportunity to bond.

Get Dessert

Who doesn’t love sugar? If you’d like to satisfy your sweet tooth, Denver is home to numerous destinations centered around your favorite meal. Check out the highly lauded boozy bread pudding at Crave, Baum Cakes at Glaze, or a little taste of everything with the three-course sampling menu at D Bar.

Visit the Butterflies

It may sound a little silly, but a good date can have both literal and metaphorical butterflies. At nearby Westminster’s Butterfly Pavilion, you can enjoy over 5,000 animals, including 1,600 butterflies, sea creatures, Rosie the tarantula, and more. Don’t miss the twice-daily butterfly releases at 12:30 pm and 3:30 pm!

Get Cooking

A cooking class is always a good way to pass the time, providing a hands-on activity that teaches teamwork, collaboration, and valuable skills. If you and your date want to try your hand at gourmet cooking (and gourmet eating, of course) The Seasoned Chef and Stir Cooking School can provide a night out perfect for any home chef.
