If you are a parent, expectant parent, or hell, even just a grown adult, it can be so hard to find time for a date night with your partner. But, you’re here, which makes me think you’re ready to plan one–hooray! Finding and choosing a new date night option can be overwhelming, so I made a list of 5 fun Philadelphia date night ideas for you to try!
If you are looking for something fun, but familiar, look no further than Thirsty Dice! This board game cafe will take your game date night to a new level. Drop in to choose a game to play, eat some delicious food, and sip on a boozy milkshake. With over 800 games in their library, there is almost no chance you don’t find something fun to play. And even better, if you want to play something new, a Gametender can suggest and even teach you how to play a new game!
Sunset Yoga, Cambodian mask making, and Drag trivia are just a few of the amazing events held at Bok Bar throughout the summer. If a pre-planned event isn’t your jam, then pop in for some amazing food and drinks for you next date night. Located on Mifflin Street in Philadelphia, the bar is easily accessible by foot, bike, subway, bus, or car. To make a day of it, take a stroll through East Passyunk before heading over! Seating is available on a first come, first served basis, but a limited number of reservations are available if you feel more comfortable planning ahead.
If you and your partner enjoy roaming shops and finding vintage goodies, the Phila Flea Markets are for you! Held every Sunday April through November, these are rated as one of the best indoor/outdoor flea markets in the area. Special events are held on specific Saturdays throughout the season, so check those dates, too! If you’re feeling competitive, make a game while on your date to see who can find the most unique item!
Throw it back to your adolescent years with some Putt-Putt, but put an adult twist on it with drinks under the same roof! An indoor mini golf course and pan-asian bar and restaurant is the perfect place to escape for a fun date night. Boasting a “hyperlocal” experience, Libertee Grounds keeps a Philly theme from the 9 hole course to the locally sourced drinks. They do not require reservations, but they are encouraged.
When you want a date night that is fun, intriguing, and a bit educational, look no further than the Museum of Illusions in Philadelphia. This museum features 16 unique installations ranging from full rooms to photos on the wall. After finishing the exhibits, head to the Smart Playroom for more fun! Be sure to check their events page to see if a pre-planned event fits what you are looking for.
