It’s Friday night. Your husband turns to you, smiles coyly, and says, “What do you want to do tonight, honey?” You ponder for a second, internally going back and forth between Netflix and board games, and then, a lightbulb goes off. You suddenly remember that you have absolutely no plans for tomorrow. And since you moved into Confluence, you could basically throw rocks into Old Town. That’s when you brave the words, ever so carefully, “Want to go out?” Your husband looks at you daringly and says, with thick sarcasm, “I don’t know, Old Town is pretty far away.” You both giggle as you peer out the window, looking directly at the beautifully lit patio of Ginger & Baker. And so it’s decided: date night is on.
Whether your date nights are sought-after like this future Confluence couple, or you and your significant other are able to make date night a regular occasion, we’ve got the perfect activities for you. Fort Collins is home to a number of romantic and intimate spots, as well as interactive and fun places to get to know your partner better. Luckily they’re all within walking (and biking!) distance of Confluence!
Nothing says romance quite like salsa dancing! Raise your heart rate and learn this intimate dance with your significant other at The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant every Tuesday night from 7:30 - 10:30 PM. Too intimidated? Get there a bit early and head to the bar on the main floor - a little liquid encouragement from a Rio Marg might do you some good!
Hey Good Lookin’, Whatcha Got Cookin’?
If you’re like the rest of us, chances are you have a handful of dishes memorized that you stick to every week. We love the idea of cooking classes with a significant other, because it means you get to spend time learning some new tricks together. The exciting part about this is that our soon-to-be-neighbor Ginger & Baker offers cooking classes! Check out their teaching kitchen schedule here, or visit The Cooking Studio just another block away for a bit of a different setting. Schedule a cooking class to make your next date night interesting with a fun activity you and your partner will adore!
Enjoy The View
The views from this spot are unparalleled with epic Colorado sunset vistas and it’s located right down the street from Confluence. Know which new Old Town rooftop bar we’re talking about? Sunset Lounge, of course! This exquisite patio and lounge atop The Elizabeth Hotel boasts an extensive cocktail, wine, and beer list. No rooftop patio is complete without live music - enjoy smooth jazz by Mark Sloniker Wednesday - Saturday from 7-11 PM.
I Wanna Hold Your Hand
If you’re into paranormal activity, there’s no better place to get close to your significant other than on a Haunted Tour! Book a Haunted Pub Tour or a Late Night Ghost Walk through Fort Collins Tours to really liven your night. We have a feeling you won’t want to let go of your partner’s hand during this fun and exciting date night activity!
Girl’s Gotta Eat! (And Guys, Too)
We almost forgot - you can’t really have a proper date night without food. Luckily, Old Town has some of the most popular and best rated restaurants in Fort Collins - just a hop and a skip away from Confluence! If you’re looking for an elegant and luxurious dining experience, head over to Rare Italian for an incredible house-aged steak. If you’re looking for something a bit more casual and easy-going, spice things up with a few street tacos at La Luz. And if neither of these options tickle your fancy, check out this map for some inspiration!
