A Date Night Look + 8 Fun Date Ideas in Seattle

Do you ever wonder what to wear for a date? Or what can you and your significant other do for a date? As Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I’ve been searching from some Seattle date night ideas for Brandon and me. I thought I’d share the some of my Seattle date night ideas with you. Here’s what I would wear and what I would do for a date night that you can also do:

What to Wear for Date Night: Something sweet, something romantic.

In my date night look, I mixed textures by pairing a chunky knit with a silk slip dress underneath. We’re still in the middle of winter in Seattle, so I love layering sweaters with dresses. For shoes, I wanted to wear some sort of heel, but still be able to walk around comfortably. So I chose to style this look with my favorite blush colored block heels. I seriously could walk around these shoes for days.

Recreate my look:
RomWe Sweater: $18.99 (on sale from $43.99!) – This is the actual sweater in my look!
                FreePeople Slip Dress: $49.95 – similar dress
                Melrose & Market Nordstrom Rack Block Heels: $49.97 – similar shoe
                White Cross Body Back Nordstrom Rack: $39.87 – similar bag

What to do for Date Night:

1.       Wine & Paint Night – Canvas
This would be a fun date night for either with your significant other or your girlfriends! A few girlfriends and I went one night really enjoyed it. I loved feeling like an artist for the evening and afterwards I actually gifted the painting to my little sister!
Price: $30/person

2.       Ride the Seattle Great Wheel – This is a classic date night thing to do in Seattle. Its such a romantic way to end the evening and get a stunning view of the city.
Price: $13/person

3.       Cooking ClassFive Course Italian Cooking Class for Two
My boyfriend and I have cooked a few times… we’ve made chicken and rice, pizza, and plenty of breakfast sandwiches. I think it would be fun if we actually tried to make an extensive, fancy meal together. I purchased this groupon but haven’t yet used it, but the reviews looked great so I’m sure it’ll be a fun time!
Price: $69/two people

4.       Sunday Ice Cream Cruise – I can’t believe I just found out about this… I might convince my boyfriend to go one of these Sundays or at least go once during spring! Anyways the Sunday Ice Cream Cruise takes you through a tour of South Lake Union. You’ll float past Gas Works Park and the Sleepless in Seattle houseboat. This is such a cute date idea, especially once the weather starts getting nicer! Plus it’s only $12 a person for the 50 min ride!
Price: $12/person

5.       Flat Stick Pub – If you’re looking for an indoor mini gold course and beer for a date night, I would recommend Flat Stick Pub! A few of my friends have really enjoyed Flat Stick Pub in Pioneer Square so I really want to check it out sometime this season.
Flat Stick Pub Price: $25/two people

6.       Appreciate the Arts:
Chihuly Glass Museum: A girlfriend visiting from out of town suggested we wander through the Chihuly Glass Museum in fall. I had heard about the museum but never been so I was excited to see the place. All of the glass blown pieces were breathtaking. I highly recommend visiting this place for a romantic date night or even as friend date with one of your girlfriends!
Price: $22/person
Seattle Art Museum: The SAM always has really interesting exhibits. Lots of my friends wandered through the museum to see the YSL exhibit. I’m still kicking myself for not making it a point to go… Anyways it would be a fun date to wander through the different exhibits!
Price: $20/person

7.       Wine & Chocolate Pairing: My boyfriend loves wine and I love chocolate, so I think we’re going to have to try this out soon! Plus Sweet Decadence Wine & Chocolate Bar rated 4.5/5 stars on Yelp so this place looks really good.
Price: $22.50/person

8.       Parlor Live Comedy Club: For a date night during the week, I would recommend the Parlor Live Comedy Club. Last year, my roommates and I went to check this place out because my roommate got free tickets. They had pretty good happy hour menu before the show and we enjoyed the Thursday evening show!
Price: $17/person

  1. The mixed textures in this outfit are so great-- Especially with the knits layered over the slip dress!

    Love all of the date night ideas you've shared. I had no idea that the ice cream cruise existed either.... time to add it to our list of date days!
