Spring is here and love is in the air. It’s a season of new beginnings as flowers bloom and the desert sun glows in the balmy palm tree breeze. Whether you’ve got yourself a new flame or you’re in a long-term relationship, there’s never a shortage of fun venues in Las Vegas that every couple can enjoy. Here are a few spring date ideas.
Brunch at Downtown Container Park
Container Park is a unique fixture in Downtown Las Vegas. Built out of recycled shipping containers, the whole shopping center reflects the innovative and urban vibe of Downtown Las Vegas. Container Park has plenty of dining, entertainment, bars and two children’s play areas. It’s a playground for all ages which makes it a perfect date destination.
Brunch at Downtown Terrace for a unique gourmet experience dining inside a shipping container. Their light farm-fresh dishes and fruity cocktails set the perfect ambiance for a great brunch date. If you’re feeling bottomless rosé and some of the best finger sandwiches and charcuterie in town, hit up BIN 702. This little gem is housed in one of the smaller containers at Container Park, but it never feels claustrophobic. The bartenders make you feel right at home and even offer to play board games with their guests.
Looking to grab a quick happy hour drink with your date? Drop by Oak & Ivy for some of the best craft whiskey cocktails and unique handcrafted drinks. They feature a selection of barrel-aged cocktails and spirits with rare beers on tap. Also housed in a cozy shipping container, Oak & Ivy makes you feel as if you’re transported to an old-school whiskey bar with the rich tones of their decor and a welcoming bartender costumed in a newsboy cap. There’s no doubt that Container Park is a great date option for Las Vegas urbanites.
Bellagio Botanical Garden and Fountain
Take a stroll inside Bellagio’s Conservatory & Botanical Garden for a breathtaking and unique display of flowers. This flower exhibit changes every season and on special featured holidays. You and your date will be mesmerized by the current floral presentation — Japanese Spring. This new spring theme features a female character in a pool of water holding a 12′-diameter sculpted pearl. The character reaches 26′ in height and towers over the rest of the botanical garden. Take some time to stand under the tall Shinto shrine Torii gates surrounded by cherry blossoms and marvel at the sheer beauty of this spring exhibit. This garden provides a romantic backdrop for memories that will last a lifetime, not forgetting to mention that every corner of this exhibit is worthy of a Kodak moment.
Now that the weather is heating up, it’s the perfect opportunity to walk out onto the fountain and watch a classic (and free) Las Vegas Strip attraction, the Bellagio Fountains. You and your date will be fascinated by this dazzling show of music, light, and water. Shows run every 15 minutes from 8 pm to midnight, which is the optimal time to watch this spectacularly choreographed water show.
Coffee Date at the Aquarium at Silverton Casino
Sometimes it’s best to keep it simple. A coffee date can do no wrong, but you can definitely spice it up with a trip to an Aquarium, gelato and relaxing by bonfire pits at sunset. Drop by Silverton Casino’s Starbucks and have a seat in our comfortable lounge area by the fountain. Later on, you can take a short walk over to the Aquarium to watch our mermaids swim or take part in the daily interactive stingray feedings. Our 117,000-gallon reef Aquarium is home to thousands of tropical fish and mermaids—a sight you and your date will surely enjoy.
Don’t let the sweetness stop there! After viewing the Aquarium, drop by Sundance Grill’s Gelato Bar and grab yourself a scoop or two and head out to The Green in front of the main entrance to relax next to our bonfire pits or take the opportunity to picnic on the open lawn. A nice spring breeze, a warm bonfire and relaxing on colorful Adirondack chairs is the perfect end to a splendid date.
Game Night at Dave & Buster’s
Be a kid again at Dave & Buster’s! You and your date will surely enjoy this arcade and sports bar in Downtown Summerlin. With weekday and happy hour specials, as well as game card discounts, you’ll definitely get more fun per dollar. Grab a drink, a bite to eat and watch some sports before heading out to the games and crushing it at the arcade.
You can spend countless hours getting lost in old arcade classics like the coin pusher or battling it out at Mario Kart. Test your shot at skee-ball or basketball and slide over to the air hockey machine. Let’s not forget the most important arcade staple of all; have your date win you a stuffed toy from the claw machine. It doesn’t matter how many points you waste on the claw, you can’t leave without a prize from that machine! You and your date will enjoy an exciting night full of laughter and amusement.
And there you have it—fun date ideas to try this spring!
