Tired of your usual date night routine? Have no fear. Help is here. On today’s blog, we’re sharing new, fun date ideas in the Denver area! Thankfully a trip to the mountains and time in nature is always an option for us in the mile-high city, but that’s not all Denver has to offer. Here are options beyond the outdoors and typical nights out.
1. Art Walk
The first Friday of every month is the Santa Fe Art District Art Walk. It’s currently a virtual event at 5 pm via the Denver’s Art District on Santa Fe Facebook page. In precented times, the live event happens between 7th and 13th ave on Santa Fe in Denver and begins to pick up between 6 and 7 pm. There are patios, bars, restaurants, and food trucks scattered throughout the streets. There are hundreds of artists in galleries, studios, co-ops, and in the alleys—pretty everywhere throughout the walk! Exhibits range from classic painted artwork to contemporary sculptures. Enjoy this free event year-round, rain or shine the first Friday of each month!
You can also enjoy the RINO Art District and stroll around to view street art as well as the breweries, restaurants, and speakeasies in the area.
2. Drive-In Movie
A drive-in movie is a great way to practice social distancing and enjoy a private night in the comfort of your own automobile. The Denver Mart Drive-In features both the latest Hollywood movies as well as true, timeless classics.
88 Drive-In in Commerce City is open seasonally and plays movies all summer long. It’s a favorite for its snack bar and the Fridays of first-run double features.
3. Live Music
Denver has no shortage of live music venues. From the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater to open mic nights and concerts across the city, there are dozens and dozens of live music venues within the city limits with a range of genres, styles, and vibes. Check out Westword to search for a band line-ups, piano bars, local jazz music, or whatever experience you’re hoping to find! Every weekend there are concerts at a range of music venues to scope out as well. The Odgen, Bluebird, and Paramount are some of the local favorites.
Cheers to new date nights and a day or evening in the beautiful city of Denver with your special loved one!
