5 Quirky Date Night Destinations in Denver

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 Beer Spa

Looking for a relaxing date night somewhere outside your usual haunting grounds? Do you enjoy sipping on a variety of craft beers? Then The Beer Spa is the place for your next date night. Enjoy Beer Bath Hydrotherapy. Yes, it is a spa tub filled with beer – all the hops, barley, and seasonal herbs that make craft beer unique. There are also plenty of saunas and massage chairs to work out any tension and stress and more than enough craft beers on tap. Who would have thought these two would go together? But they certainly do and make for a date night not soon forgotten.

Bigsby Folly

Wine tasting is a wonderfully romantic date night but a trip to Bigsby Folly offers something a bit different and special. At their Custom Blending Session, you’ll become a Winemaker for a time. Indulge in your dream of running away to open your own vineyard and see if you’ve got what it takes. You’ll be able to blend your own red wine and take home a bottle of a one-of-a-kind vintage with a custom label.  

The 1Up

Step back into a retro era and challenge your date to a game of Donkey Kong, Frogger, Pac-man, or Tapper. This Arcade Bar is an adult wonderland where you and your date can play all night long. Instead of heading to a bar with the typical games – darts and pool – try The 1Up and its bright, energetic atmosphere. 

Downtown Art Gallery & Axe Room

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 Downtown Art Gallery & Axe Room will begin with a drink and tour of local artwork followed by 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.

Williams and Graham Speakeasy Bar

Walking into the bar, you may feel like you’ve stepped into a cocktail lounge that doubles as a library but hidden behind the bookshelf is another world. A world filled with glamour and the indulgent atmosphere for which the speakeasy era is famous.
