Couples are happier and more connected when they spend quality time together. But let’s be honest…it’s not always easy to find the time or creativity for date night. Not to worry, we’re here to help! We’re dedicated to inspiring lovers like you to recharge through fun and romantic dates in Savannah!

1. An Oldie But A Goodie

Make this date about all things vintage. First, start with hitting up Picker Joe’s to browse their wares from way back and pick up a couple of mementos to remind yourself of your special day. Next, go to Fork & Dagger diner and sit in a booth complete with vinyl and chrome. After you’ve had your fill of food then head to Lone Wolf Lounge for a step back in time and some creative cocktails. End the night at Moodrights playing a mean game of duckpin bowling.

2. Get Fired Up!

We are going to start this date with an activity to remember, Hostess City Hot Glass is offering private glassblowing (two person) classes right now. You can make your own cups, paperweights, hearts, sea floats, etc. To book a class, just go to their website, www.hostesscityhotglass.com, and click on the “book now” button. You will see a list of class types with descriptions and upcoming availability. As a super bonus they are currently offering the coupon code STUDIOFRIEND to save 60% off most classes. As you pack up your one-of-a-kind, made by you, fired up treasures, then start dreaming of your next stop.  A wood fired Squirrel’s Pizza for 2 and don’t forget to split the Baked Chevre. Keep the flame going at Water Witch Tiki with a lighted Ring of Fire cocktail to end the day.

3. Hit the Bullseye on Date Night

At an axe throwing facility, such as Blade and Bull, you are coached by an expert how to throw axes into a target. Are you and your date competitive? You can compete against each other and earn points based on where your axe lands on the target. Or, if you are just looking to chill, why not just have a couple drinks and throw axes for fun? In continuing with the theme of weaponry, why not make your next stop Artillery Bar where the winner of your axe throwing competition will be sure to order the Triumph served with Plantation 5 year rum, blood orange shrub, Amaro Montenegro and lemon. Now that you have had training with axes and artillery you might as well be a full fledged marauder and where do marauders eat, at The Pirate’s House…ARGH!

 

4. Brighten the Day of a Bridgerton Fan

The Duke of Hasting unexpectedly swept us away and now it’s your chance to give your special someone the same treatment. First step, order a beautiful and delicious breakable chocolate heart from local Savannah Etsy shop Choc About it. You can opt to put a special gift inside the heart, like maybe something a duke would get a lady (hint-necklace) with a special invitation to an afternoon of romance. Next make a reservation for high tea in the courtyard or parlor of the Justine Inn by calling 912-677-0726. The tea includes an assortment of finger sandwiches, canapes, a soup or salad, pastries and cake, fresh fruit, selection of tea and a bottle of champagne for $20 per person. As Lady Whistledown would say, “You don’t know me, but I know you.” And I know exactly what this date needs next. A carriage ride with Red Gate Farms, experience a couples carriage ride around their historic farm and keep the bubbly flowing with another complimentary bottle of champagne. They have limited spots available for February 12-14th so book your today by calling 912-239-7855.

5. The Sky’s the limit

On Valentine’s day the sky’s the limit that’s why you need to head to St. Neo’s Brasserie for tiers upon tiers of oysters, crudos, shrimp, lobster and crab legs. This is a special and requires an advance request for a grand or deluxe tower. You can call their host to reserve at 912-662-8901. And what should you do after to work off all that seafood?  How about broadening your horizons with a fun Tour with the Teacher Trivia Tour. Get some exercise and learn about Savannah’s squares, churches, history, haunting’s, movies, and pop culture while you walk around our beautiful city. Next let’s try a sugar high at Lulu’s Chocolate Bar which offers cheesecake, cake, tarts, pie, brownies and more. What a perfect ending to a over-the-top day!
