Bored with the same ordinary date night? Shake things up with an evening out that is uniquely Downtown St. Louis. The heart of the Gateway City has date-night destinations perfect for any type of couple.

Enjoy the Outdoors

Take in the warm summer weather with an outdoor date. Start with a romantic walk through the ever-creatve Citygarden. Up next is dinner at Vin de Set, where you can dine on the rooftop patio overlooking the Arch. End the night with a nightcap from one of St. Louis’ best rooftop bars, Three Sixty.

Take in the Vintage Charm

Start the evening at St. Louis Union Station where you can take in the hourly Grand Hall Light Show on the hour from 5 p.m. until 10 p.m. Keep the charm of yesteryear alive as you head to the 90-plus-year-old Al’s Restaurant for a luxe dinner of steaks or seafood. Wrap up the evening at Downtown’s hidden retro treasure, the Thaxton Speakeasy. (But don’t forget the password!)

Get Active Together

Fuel up without weighing yourself down with an early sushi dinner at Mizu Sushi Bar, then head over to Upper Limits Downtown St. Louis for an evening of indoor rock climbing. Whether you’re showing off on the wall or struggling to get a few feet off the ground, you surely worked hard enough to deserve some dessert. Even if you stay until closing, you can always grab a late night ice cream—did we mention it’s made from scratch?—at Bailey’s Range.
