So dating season is year round but you are having a tough time deciding on what would be a good idea for a first or perhaps even a third date. You need ideas for someone you are meeting for the first time or what to do with your long-term partner on a romantic evening. If you live in and around New South Wales there a few things you can do to ensure the sparks fly so here are a few options to think about.
Admittedly it is winter at the moment but when the weather is warm, it is hard to beat a classic picnic. Pack a comfortable rug and pack yourself a lovely lunch and a nice bottle of wine and head to nice location. If you like to sit in a park, you could head to Centennial Parklands, the Royal Botanic Gardens. If you want some spectacular views of the water, visit Cockatoo Island or Bradleys Head.
Drive in theatre
This is a twist on the classic movie date. There is something special about a drive-in guaranteed to bring out all those teenage romance feelings. You could head to the Skyline Drive-In Theatre in Blacktown which ironically is actually less expensive to visit than a regular theatre. Plus you have a range of classic movie snacks to choose from including popcorn, cotton candy and chili cheese dogs.
Head to a rooftop bar
If you don’t want to be too adventurous, you could visit one of Sydney’s many rooftop bars and grab a drink. This is an especially good idea during spring when you can soak up the sun whilst sipping a cocktail and enjoying the spectacular city view. There are plenty of these bars to choose from just to name a few check outTaylor’s Rooftop Bar, Coogee Pavilion, Royal Hotel Paddington or East Village Hotel.
Check out a comedy night
The theory is that people who are compatible generally share a sense of humour. There is probably a lot of truth to that so why not take a date to a comedy night at The Comedy Lounge and share a few laughs? Every Monday night there is a Gala Show and on Wednesday nights is Waywards stand-up comedy. There are also special shows that take place on Saturday and Sunday that are usually well advertised.
Play a round of mini golf
If you head to Newtown, Castle Hill, there is a Mini Golf course known as Holey Moley that also has a cocktail bar. You can turn the traditional mini golf round into a multi-sensory experience and entertain your date with the maddest round of golf you have both ever played. When you add the music, the booze and the food, this is the ultimate night of fun for a date night.
