It can be a lot of pressure when you’re trying to plan for the perfect date night. Whether you’re thinking of ideas for a first date or you and your significant other just need a night out away from the kids, Downtown Las Vegas is the perfect choice to keep things fun, fresh, and romantic. Here are some ideas for an awesome date night in Downtown Las Vegas.
First Date Ideas
First dates can be tricky for several reasons. You don’t want to come out the gates too strong, but you also want to make it obvious that you put the effort in to impress that special person. A great way to break the ice is to grab a drink to start off the evening, then share a delicious meal at a noteworthy restaurant.
Pizza Rock in Downtown Las Vegas is the perfect spot to keep things relaxed and casual while also enjoying some hand-crafted artisan cocktails and award-winning pizza by 11-time World Pizza Champion, Tony Gemignani. Pizza Rock also offers other tasty menu options such as artisan salads, fresh pasta dishes, calzones, Kobe beef burgers, and more. You can also order an imported beer or bottle of wine if that’s what you prefer. The energy is always up and the food is definitely on point. What more can you ask for on a first date?
Daytime Date Ideas
Usually when you think of a “date,” it’s more of an evening affair, but not everybody has free time or can sync up their schedules after the sun goes down. In some cases, it’s better to get together during the day and fit in a little romance whenever you can. Luckily, Downtown Las Vegas is always rocking, no matter what time of day or night. This way, you know there’s always something to do if you head to this part of town.
One of the best recommendations we can give is to head over to Freedom Beat at Downtown Grand. Not only is it open 24 hours a day, but Chef Scott Commings hosts his epic all-you-can-eat brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm! You can also visit the Citrus Grand Pool Deck on the rooftop of Downtown Grand if you feel more like relaxing together with a dip in the pool and a cold drink in hand.
If you’re in the mood to simply walk and talk, you can take a stroll through Container Park in Downtown Las Vegas. There are plenty of stores and restaurants for window shopping or grabbing a quick bite to eat if your time is limited.
Romantic Dinner Date
Now to the good stuff. We all want to be wined and dined every now and then, and Downtown Las Vegas has no shortage of great restaurants to host a romantic dinner date. Downtown Las Vegas offers a wonderful vintage Vegas vibe that you won’t find anywhere else in the city, so it’s a unique and welcoming place to visit for a special night.
If you really want to impress your date, consider Triple George Grill for an upscale dinner in a vintage Las Vegas setting. Triple George offers the most amazing steak and seafood dishes, along with impressive cocktails and a robust wine list. The classic “Old Vegas” setting includes deep booths, stunning chandeliers, portrait artwork, and a beautiful wooden bar. To avoid a long wait on busy nights, don’t forget to make a reservation!
Just minutes from Downtown Grand, you can also check out some of the restaurants in the Fremont East District if you’re looking for different types of cuisine. Some places to consider include Flock & Fowl, Therapy, and La Comida.
Wild Night Out Date
Not everybody’s idea of the perfect date night revolves around a fancy dinner. Some couples simply need a break from the usual routine and want to hit the town for a fun night out! Downtown Las Vegas has a reputation for hosting the wildest parties in the city, so it’s definitely the place to be if you and your significant other are looking to shake things up a bit.
One stop you need to make is at Hogs & Heifers, a Southern-themed dive bar with bartenders that take things up a notch in the rowdy category. They’ll interact with the crowd, jump on the bar for a dance when their favorite song comes on, and pour their drinks with a heavy hand. Once you’ve had your fill, you can keep the party going by playing some craps at Downtown Grand or barhopping your way through downtown.
Live Show Date Ideas
If you’re planning a date night in Downtown Las Vegas with your loved one, you might be on the lookout for a fun show to enjoy together. Other than dinner and drinks, there’s no better way to connect than to share some laughs with your favorite person. The Downtown Grand hosts some of the best comedy shows in Downtown Las Vegas and it’s the perfect way to make some memories.
Downtown Grand is home to Don Barnhart’s Hypnomania comedy hypnosis show from Wednesday through Sunday nights at 7:00 pm, and Delirious, a more traditional stand-up comedy show on Wednesday through Sunday at 9:00 pm. Both shows take place in The Spare Room, and tickets can be purchased online or at the Downtown Grand Box Office.
