Date night doesn’t have to be the same each time. While we all love cuddling up at the movies or trying new restaurants or embracing a bit of high culture at museums, every once in a while, date night needs to be shaken up. Each city has a hidden world of strange, quirky, and delightful things to do. Try any one of these on your next date night and embrace the weird, whimsical part of life.
The Splatter Studio
If you and your date are looking to unleash your inner artist while getting a little messy, then head to The Splatter Studio where messy is the name of the game. When you arrive at the Studio, you’ll be handed a poncho, shoe covers, and gloves to protect your gloves from the paint that will get everywhere. The Splatter Studio is both paint night and paint fight. Throw the paint at your canvas, splatter your date (maybe), and have a blast creating a unique piece of art. Just make sure to sign up for a session ahead of time.
Porsche Experience Center
There are a few Porsche Experience Centers in the United States and one of them is in Atlanta. It is a great place for a different type of date night (perfect for racing or car enthusiasts). You can learn how to drive/race a Porsche, experience the thrill from the passenger seat and the driver’s seat, learn the history, and even try your hand at navigating some of the greatest racetracks in the world using the Simulator. A date at the Porsche Experience Center makes for an exciting night, especially if you and your date don’t mind a little competition.
Revery VR Bar
Looking for something beyond your typical night out at the bar? Are you a couple that enjoys playing video games together but want to get out of the house? Revery Virtual Reality Bar is the place for you! They are a cocktail bar in all the traditional, beloved ways but have a unique twist. You and your date can rent a VR space with goggles and enjoy games of every style, including puzzle-based, sports, FPS, and exploratory games. Revery VR Bar is especially great for double dates.
Atlanta’s Tiny Doors
If you like searching for the public murals throughout a city, taking an afternoon/evening with your camera and your date to find incredible art in the most unexpected places, then searching for all of Atlanta’s Tiny Doors is a must. Artist Karen Anderson Singer created this project that installs 7-inch doors on walls, columns, and bridges in all Atlanta’s neighborhoods. Each door has a different design that reflects the community or building surrounding it. No two are the same and searching for every door makes for an amazing scavenger hunt date night that will take you all over Atlanta – to the most unexpected, quirky places.
Axe Throwing Atlanta
Axe-throwing has become increasingly popular over the past few years, especially for couples who are tired of classic date nights (dinner and a movie). Axe-throwing is perfect for active couples, those looking for a little competition, and those who want adventure. Any trip to Axe Throwing Atlanta will begin with safety and instructions before getting to the good stuff – throwing an axe at a wooden target and reveling in the satisfying thud when it hits the board. Walk-ins are accepted, but it is usually best to book in advance.
