Valentine’s day is right around the corner. Do you have plans with your special someone?
Consider these unique date night ideas in the Seattle area for your next romantic evening!
Nothing beats the classic date-night staple of a wonderful meal out. Seattle is home to hundreds of excellent restaurants. Here are some of the best — based on their food and drinks, but also on the romantic ambiance.
Momiji is one of Seattle’s finest Japanese restaurants. Enjoy a full sushi menu, raw bar, steaks, and grilled seafood, all served with traditional Japanese flair. Plus, enjoy the romantic view over the garden from the floor-to-ceiling windows!
Terra Plata is a fine dining establishment focusing on locally sourced bites. The culinary team takes great pride in sourcing local, organic, and seasonal ingredients from the Pacific Northwest. The ambiance is excellent — and there’s even a heated outdoor rooftop terrace, for those who prefer to dine outside.
Eden Hill Restaurant is a small, quaint fine dining establishment in Queen Anne. With seating for only 24 guests at a time, it feels almost like attending a dinner party, rather than a restaurant! And the food is unreal: A fantastic selection of small plate delicacies, and a full chef’s tasting menu for those special occasions.
Archipelago is one of Seattle’s hottest new restaurants, serving traditional Filipino flavors with Pacific Northwest flair. The catch is that this restaurant gets fully booked out months in advance — you’ll need to plan ahead if you want to experience Archipelago for yourself!
Fancy something a bit more unique? Checkout these fun romantic activities in and around Seattle:
Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience is a unique interactive art exhibit, featuring the work of famed artist Vincent Van Gogh. The exhibit lets you step inside Van Gogh’s famous artwork — like Starry Night — through an immersive, tech-driven interactive experience.
Kenmore Air offers a variety of scenic tours on small planes, in and around (and over!) Seattle. One of the best departs from Lake Union, and circles over the Seattle metropolis for 20 glorious minutes. Flights start from just $109 per person.
What’s better than taking a boat out on Lake Union on a beautiful day? How about taking out a boat… that’s also a hot tub? It sounds like a joke, but Lake Union Hot Tub Boats are 100% a real thing! You can rent them in 2-hour sessions, and cruise around Lake Union in comfort (and warmth!)
The Chihuly Garden and Glass is a permanent art exhibit in Seattle, located right next to the Space Needle. Although a bit touristy, it’s an incredibly beautiful exhibit, displaying the legendary blown glass artwork of Dale Chihuly. Even if you’ve seen the exhibit before, it’s worth returning for a live glass blowing demonstration!
The NEKO Cat Cafe is a unique cafe where you can grab a drink, and socialize with furry friends! When you walk in, you will find dozens of cats roaming about — many of which are adoptable. NEKO has partnered with Regional Animal Services of King County to help find cats and kittens “forever homes”. So whether you just want to hang out with some kitties, or you are looking for your next pet to take home, check out NEKO Cat Cafe!
