“A perfect date night starts with treating your date like a date! That means asking me out officially. Texting is totally acceptable although a phone call is really upping your game. But don’t waste my time if you’re not serious about a real date.” A real date does not have to be to an expensive restaurant for dinner, but it helps to have an idea of where to take your date and be willing to pay for that cup of coffee or lunch, whatever the date may be.
Meeting up at a local coffee shop can be an ideal first date. Nashville has some awesome spots for that perfect “cup of joe” with a relaxed atmosphere. Here are some great places to try for a cool coffee date: Bongo Java, Frothy Monkey, Fido, and Dose Coffee.
Lite Bites & Drinks
Another great first date includes some great appetizers and fun, refreshing beverages. Some laid-back fun places to try are Old Glory, Rosemary, LA Jackson, and Café Intermezzo. If you want to treat your date to a dessert spot, try Bar Sovereign or The Patterson House. Awesome!
If a second or third date is on the calendar, taking your date to a great feature film or even a small special showing is still a good night out. Check out the local theatres and see what’s playing and be sure to ask your date what their fave movie genre is before you buy those tickets!
Romantic Dinner for Two
Now if you really want to move the relationship to the next level, a little more intimate evening and a romantic setting is on the agenda! There are many wonderful spots across Nashville. You can’t go wrong with any of these favorites like Barcelona, Urban Grub, Moto or Virago! All of the M Street restaurants are trendy with excellent food, drinks and service but each one has a different motif and food genre.
Dancing Cheek to Cheek
Nothing is better for a great date night than to dance the night away with your special someone. Just make sure there is a good DJ that you both vibe to!
