Remember when your relationship was new and you excitedly planned out every last detail of your dates? Now date night means cuddling up on the couch and watching TV in your luxurious Cherry Creek apartment while sharing Kung Pao from your favorite Chinese restaurant. While it’s nice to get to become so comfortable with your partner and have your own Friday night traditions, relationships need novelty too. There are plenty of date spots in the Cherry Creek neighborhood where you can find new things to do.
Vinue Food and Wine Bar
There are countless upscale eateries in Cherry Creek where you can take a date, but Vinue Food and Wine Bar is one of the most romantic. Dim lights and classic movies set the mood. Share some tapas and taste any of 68 different wines by three different sized glasses as you wander through the unique restaurant. It’s not your typical sit-down eating experience.
Cherry Creek Trail
The smooth, concrete path that runs from Confluence Park, past Cherry Creek Reservoir, all the way to Franktown. It is perfect for a romantic stroll or a fun bike ride. Rent a tandem bike to enhance communication and interaction, and bond as you work together to keep the bike moving. There are multiple attractions along the trail, so you can stop to have a picnic on one of the parks or grab a bear at Dad & Dudes Breweria.
While this adult arcade (or “barcade” since you can get your game on and your drink on) is technically in Denver, the Colfax location of 1UP is just minutes from Cherry Creek. Enjoy a little friendly competition with your date on any of the 42 pinball machines or 90 classic arcade games, including Mario Kart, Ms. Pac-Man, Donkey Kong Junior and Guitar Hero. If you have so much fun you want to come back, check out their team leagues and pinball tournaments.
