This is Denver, one of the United State’s most vibrant and growing cities. There are so many events, new places, and fun activities to do on a weekly basis. Therefore, bringing your date to the same bars, restaurants, or breweries for every night out should be virtually inexcusable! There are a plethora of ways to get creative in this beautiful city. The best part? You don’t have to put in too much effort deciding where to go next because we’ve put together a list of unique date ideas for you and your loved one right in time for Valentine’s Day this week! The Denver date ideas listed below are all bound to impress.
Check out Denver’s Art Scene
This city is filled with art and places to view it. If you want to get creative and intellectual with your date this Valentine’s Day, we recommend stopping by the MCA Denver or Denver Art Museum to view some incredible paintings, sculptures, and other visuals. The art in MCA Denver changes regularly, and the unique displays are bound to spark interesting conversations that you can enjoy sitting at their rooftop bar. On the flip side, you also have the option to visit one of the largest art museums between the west coast and Chicago – the Denver Art Museum! This spot has incredible rotating exhibits that rival even the most prestigious museums in the country. And if an evening of art isn’t enough, carry it through the weekend! Denver Graffiti Tour is a 2-hour walking tour of the highest quality street art in the city. Learn the history behind the murals and the art of graffiti. After a morning or afternoon tour, you’ll end up at the Denver Central Market where you can enjoy a beverage, snack and a fabulous conversation over all you’ve just seen.
Laugh Out Loud
Laughter on a date is key! In fact, getting your date to laugh out loud may be exactly the trick in scoring that second date! That’s why we recommend enjoying a comedy show this Valentine’s Day. Head over to Comedy Works Denver! This Valentine’s weekend, stand-up, actor and writer Phil Hanley is gracing the stage and tickets include a box of chocolates and a dozen roses. If you’re looking to see the best of what Denver locals have to offer, Denver’s VooDoo Comedy is laughing it up with several improv events on Valentine’s Day and through the weekend.
Movie Night… With a Twist!
Let’s be honest. Since the days of dating in high school, we’ve all gone on a classic movie date, but this Valentine’s Day, switch it up with an art-house film-study! Both The Esquire and The Mayan are vintage, small theatres that show movies you won’t see at the Pavilions. This weekend, you can catch the 2020 Oscar Nominated Animated Shorts or indie flicks like Jojo Rabbit and The Assistant. And if you haven’t checked it out yet, Denver’s only year-round cinematheque, The Sie FilmCenter presents first-run exclusives and arthouse revivals.
Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be intimidating OR dull! With one of these unique date ideas, we are sure you will have the best one yet – and so will your date! If you’re interested in learning more about Denver’s local scene, and all of the best places and activities – give us a call today!
