3 Anything-but-Ordinary Date Nights in Denver

Call the babysitter and try these ideas to keep the spark alive.

Swing a Club

The recently opened GC Lounge in Denver’s City Park West neighborhood is an interactive hub for sports-lovers and foodies alike. Trackman golf simulators offer up the chance to practice your swing and play famed courses (hello, Pebble Beach!) without leaving town. After your tee time, enjoy dinner and a cocktail together at the lounge’s restaurant.

Go for a spin

If all you can squeeze in on date night is a quick drink, make it a memorable one. Sunday Vinyl, a wine bar and eatery located near Denver’s Union Station, hosts “Flight Night” every Wednesday. The series is centered around specific music artists that provide the soundtrack for each evening. Past artists featured have been Taylor Swift and the Rolling Stones. While you enjoy the music, order a wine flight, which comes with five varieties.

Turn up the heat

Cooking together and creating something new can bring couples closer. Join other date nighters at one of Stir Cooking School’s classes. The school offers themed date night classes where you learn how to prepare mouth-watering dishes like spanakopita, fig and goat cheese tartlets, pork belly bao buns, and cornish game hen.
