The best parts of your St. Louis getaway will be those moments when you can piece together some time for just you and your traveling partner. Dining on fine foods, sipping sensational chardonnays, or laughing hysterically at the comedian that until now you had only seen on television are the moments that turn an ordinary vacation into an extraordinary dream come true! This guide to date night hot spots in romantic St. Louis will ensure that this escape will be one you never want to end.

Love and Laughter Go Hand in Hand

If you can’t laugh together, you can’t expect a relationship to last long, but don’t be worried! The Funny Bone, located at 614 W. Port Plaza, has the solution to your grumpiness, offering professional comics nearly every night of the week; Tuesdays and Sundays are dedicated to open mic nights, so if you think you have a funny bone that tickles, give it a shot! Otherwise, just enjoy a night of laughter, food, and drinks as some of the funniest men and women in the nation prove their worth.

Let the Good Times Roll

Broadway Oyster Bar, located at 736 S. Broadway, offers a warm and friendly space to enjoy delicious Cajun delicacies and life entertainment that could have come straight from the bayous of Louisiana! Enjoy a magical evening with the love of your life and listen to the live performances that are once more hitting the stage of the best date night spot in St. Louis. Every night is different, but the good food and the cheerful ambiance is something that never changes.

The Roaring 20s

All the fun that used to be a part of a night out in the 1920s is even more fun today—especially as drinking is no longer outlawed! Thaxton Speakeasy, located at 1009 Olive Street, allows you to take a step back to a time where the bees had knees and every friend was your Bo! Open on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays only, reservations are highly recommended; pandemic restrictions are limiting the number of people allowed in, and we would absolutely hate for you to miss out on the fun found at this sweet spot.

The Wheel Reinvented

The inventor of the wheel really did make our lives easier, just as the St. Louis Wheel makes romance easier during your Missouri getaway! Standing 200 feet high and offering 42 gondolas that are enclosed for your comfort without obstructing the views that will take your breath away, this Ferris wheel has been the star feature of more first dates than we can imagine! Open every day of the week from 10 AM until 10 PM, each 15-minute ride promises to enchant, and when the ride ends, it doesn’t mean the fun has to end as well. The St. Louis Wheel is located at the Union Station which also offers mini-golf, a carousel, ropes course, mirror maze, and the wonderful St. Louis Aquarium, allowing for a night of fun that goes on and on and on!

Lose Yourself in the Story

No matter how modern you may be, a night at the movies is still a great idea for a date, especially these days, as you no longer need to sneak in snacks to enjoy during the show. Many movie theaters, including Marcus Ronnie’s Cinema, located at South Lindbergh and Baptist Church Road, now serve alcohol! Marcus Ronnie’s also offers meals, so young lovers of any age can enjoy dinner and a show without leaving the theater. Watch the latest releases or catch a remake of an old show, digitally enhanced to appear as if it were filmed today.

There’s No Trouble in River City

The River City Casino, that is! Open after a brief pandemic closure, the hottest date night of your life can occur when you hit the big jackpot at this exciting casino! Located at 777 River City Casino Boulevard, couples can enjoy a big meal, see a great show, or simply rake in the chips at the gaming tables. Inside the casino, Judy’s Velvet Lounge always has some kind of musical entertainment going on, so when you tire of gambling wander over to the elaborate purple velvet lounge and spend the rest of your night sipping chardonnay as you listen to the hottest music. This night will definitely be one for the highlight reels of your relationship!

Fall in Love with Dinner

The ultimate date night experience will always be, has always been, a great meal with the one you love. If you want to amp it up a bit during your St. Louis getaway, the rooftop bar at Vin De Set, 2017 Chouteau Ave, will take your love to the next level! Offering a menu filled with all the best French classics and views of the St. Louis landscape that never fail to take your breath away, you will fall in love with dinner all over again as you dine with the one you love most.
