If you’ve been dating for awhile all dates can start to look the same. And while dinner and a movie or dinner and a show can be fun, these options don’t create a lot of opportunity to spend quality time together. However, as Denver grows, the number of creative options for date nights has grown too. From active adventures to craftier pursuits, dating in Denver has never been better.
A fairly new addition to the Denver metro area, Top Golf is a year-round driving range where players hit golf balls containing microchips towards targets. Players can track how far they hit their balls, and points are awarded based on the achieved distance and whether or not a player hits the target. The rates vary throughout the day, and the bays are cheapest to rent in the hours before noon. Each bay is climate controlled, meaning that regardless of how hot or how cold it is outside, it will be a pleasant experience. Couples will enjoy lighthearted competition against each other in a fun setting.
For couples who are more artistically inclined (or at least striving to be), Upstairs Circus is a great option for date night. With two locations in Denver and DTC, Upstairs Circus provides a menu of craft projects to choose from. Directions and provisions are provided, and drinks are available for purchase. At the end of the night, couples walk away having spent quality time together while actively creating something new.
At a number of locations in Denver, couples can learn how to cook together. Sur La Table locations in Denver, Boulder and Centennial offer cooking classes focusing on different types of cuisine, including how to make French Macarons, themed cooking nights, or workshops on how to cook more complicated entrees and desserts. Located in Centennial, Uncorked Kitchen offers upscale cooking classes. Each event focuses on a particular theme and attendees learn a variety of cooking skills while they prepare their meals. Attendees can also purchase drinks to enjoy alongside their meals. Couples will enjoy learning how to cook well while enjoying quality time together.
The Chocolate Therapist Pairing Classes
Located in Littleton, the Chocolate Therapist is a locally owned and operated chocolate store that also offers a number of classes. Each month, their calendar offers classes on how to pair chocolate with wine, beer or cocktails. Not only will couples learn something about pairing chocolate with libations they’ll get to enjoy a few drinks and time together in the process.
Denver continues to grow, and that growth increases the number of businesses geared toward offering adults a fun night out together. Couples can learn a new skill together, create something new, or develop their athletic abilities. Ultimately, couples who play together stay together, and it’s great to be able to spend time enjoying each other’s company while doing something more than watching a movie.
