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.
Every Day Will Be Like the First Days of Your Love
No matter how you spend your days in Missouri, coming home each evening to the lush comforts of our JZ Vacation Rentals romantic escapes will be the brightest part of your getaway. Reserve yours today!
As 2020 becomes a happy memory, it is time to start making plans for the new year that spreads out before us like a beautifully blank slate. Your resolutions for the year were to worry less and travel more, and since Valentine’s Day is on a Sunday this year, why not start your travels with a romantic getaway to Kentucky Lake with the one who has stood by your side for so many years! Located along the border of scenic Kentucky and idyllic Tennessee, your chances for fun, excitement, and of course, romance are doubled when you stay in one of our JZ Vacation Rentals luxurious and dreamy escapes. This guide to the adventures you can have during your stay will make this Valentine’s Day one you will never forget!
The Weekend Is Yours
Doing your travel on Friday allows you and your bride or groom the opportunity to make a lazy start to your Valentine’s getaway, and breakfast in bed is the best way we know to begin your adventures on this day of love! For those that do not add cooking to their long list of accomplishments, a little pre-planning and a stop in Parcell’s Perk Coffee Shop and Bakery, 165 US HWY 68E Suite 3 in nearby Benton, will get you everything you need to please your Valentine. Offering her favorite donut (the Boston crème is ours!), his favorite cruller, and everyone’s favorite cupcakes, the sugary treats found here can simply be unboxed, placed on a tray, and carried into the bedroom for a sweet awakening! If you like to cook, however, our fully equipped kitchens offer everything you need (minus the food) to create the breakfast of your dreams.
Time for Just the Two of You
Your real life is stressful, filled with meetings, angry bosses, and lots of little moments that give you that little twinge right there in the back of your neck. On this weekend of love, however, we have the perfect solution to rid you of that pain: a couple’s massage offered by Elysian Fields, Massage & Spa! Located at 3420 Lone Oak Road, Ste A in Paducah and offering two couple’s packages, if your time spent here does not relieve your aches and pains, nothing will! Enjoy the four-hour Just for Us package that includes a 60-minute massage, facials, pedicures, and lunch or keep it simple with the 2.5-hour Two Became One package. This service includes a 60-minute massage, facials, and snacks (chocolate fondue, fresh strawberries, and cheese and crackers!) and allows you to get out and explore more of the Kentucky Lake area if time is tight!
Couples Who Play Together
Let’s face it, for a relationship to thrive, not just survive, the most important thing you can do is play together. A visit to Maggie’s Jungle Golf will bring out the competitive kid in both of you! Located at 7301 US-641 in Gilbertsville, Maggie’s offers a barrel full of fun and live animals as well as some that it’s best they are fake! Check out the small zoo of ponies, alpacas, and birds—including a beautiful peacock—as you enjoy the taste of a snow cone while playing 18 holes of miniature golf. The couple who plays together will last forever!
Picnic on the Porch
One of the best qualities of our Kentucky Lake rentals is their location right on the lake. Put together a picnic of your favorite foods and take it out to the porch to enjoy! Offering ringside seats of the best view in town, you can sip wine and snack for as long as you want, and this quiet time is the best time to share secrets, wishes, and plans for the future. If it’s a little chilly (which can happen in February), many of our properties offered a four seasons porch, covered and protected from the lake winds that offer the same views without the need for heavy coats.
The Quickest Way to Their Hearts
We all know that the quickest way to anyone’s heart is through their stomach, and a romantic meal at the Willow Bistro, 124 N 15th Street in Murray, is the perfect way to end a beautiful day on Kentucky Lake! Offering an international selection of entrees that includes Greek, Thai, Mexican, and your favorite American dishes, there is literally no way we can choose just one dish for you to enjoy! They are famous for their gyros, so if you can’t narrow down your choices, you definitely cannot go wrong with that, but we can promise you every bite of every meal will make you want more. Ending this romantic getaway with two spoons and their Dessert Medley (you get to choose three of their desserts to try out) will ensure that you both leave the Willow Bistro floating on air!
