Downtown Denver

 1. For the Artsy Couple
On the first Friday of each month, the Santa Fe Art District hosts First Friday Art Walks where you can leisurely walk the streets, viewing hundreds of pieces from local artists. Once you’ve had your cultural fill, grab a bite from one of the many restaurants and food trucks along 7th and 9th Avenues and enjoy each other’s company in the lively and eclectic ambiance of the Art District! Check out their events page for more information on specific themes and activities.
2. For the Night Owls
Get gussied up and hit the town! Williams & Graham is a swanky speakeasy in the Highlands neighborhood that takes you on a trip back in time with its Prohibition-style charm. Don’t forget the “magic word” — you’ll have to wait in a mock bookstore before being granted entry and indulging in classy cocktails and handcrafted eats.
3. For the Star Gazers
Wine and dine under Colorado’s brightest night skies at the Denver Botanic Gardens. Surrounded by vibrant, lush greenery and blooming spring florals, each dome offers romantic views as nature puts on a show every evening. Indulge in a four-course meal prepared by an award-winning chef and sip champagne under the stars inside the comfort of weather-resistant domes for a decadent evening to remember.
4. For the Theatre Enthusiasts
A classic “dinner and a show” kind of date night is a fail-proof way to immerse yourself in the culture of the city with your companion. Choose a spot to dine, then you’re off to the theatre! The DCPA hosts a wide variety of plays and musicals from age-old classics to contemporary performances, so you’re sure to find a show for everyone.
