Date Night - Fall Edition

Fall is the perfect season for getting cozy, ordering in, and hunkering down for an evening with that special someone. But dating is so much more than Netflix and well, you know the rest. Where's the romance, Steve? You better get your act together. Get out of the house, take your sweetheart somewhere nice, and for god's sake, put on some pants.

Whether you're in it for the long haul or hanging out one-on-one with your crush for the first time, we've got you covered with this Autumn guide to date night in Edmonton.

Northern Lights

Jump & Jive at Sugar Swing

Take your date to Sugar Swing Ballroom's Dance Socials on Friday or Saturday evenings and woo your partner with some sweet dance moves. Lessons are available before the party begins, so you won't have to worry about stepping on each other's feet. Dance to swing music, and get to know your partner while you Lindy Hop. All levels welcome!

Events at the AGA

The Art Gallery of Alberta is a date night classic. Why not kick it up a notch at one of their classy events? Get past the small talk as you sip on cocktails and appreciate beautiful art and beautiful company. Music, small plates, and drinks await at Vibe at the AGA (the third Friday of every month), while Refinery at the AGA is your chance to dress up and party after dark at the All Hollow's Eve event on October 27.

Segway for Two

Paint Nite Edmonton

If you're romantic like Van Gogh, but would rather keep both your ears, try taking your date to one of the many Paint Nite events around town. You'll create one-of-a-kind masterpieces with the help of the Paint Nite team and enjoy a pint or cocktail while you channel your inner Picasso.

Edmonton Corn Maze

Board Game Cafes & Escape Rooms

Bring along another couple for a double date at an escape room or board game cafe. Work together to crack codes in escape rooms like Escape City's The Hunt for Arms McGee, which features a series of Edmonton-themed puzzles. Gather around a table at Hexagon Board Game Cafe or Table Top Board Game Cafe where you will find espresso-based beverages, beer, soda, and (of course) awesome board games.

An Evening at the Symphony

For a special outing to keep the fire alive, check out the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra at the Winspear Centre. Concerts feature a wide-range of repertoire: classical masterworks, hip-hop, pop, and even cinematic favourites. This date night idea is a no-brainer with fall concerts that include A Tribute to the Beatles- Classical Mystery Tour, Mozart's Symphony No. 40, and Women of Rock. Swoon.
