5 Quirky Date Night Destinations in Houston

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.

Lucky Land

An amusement you wouldn’t think exists in the middle of Texas. Lucky Land showcases Asian history and culture while offering plenty of fun amusements for you and your date. Tour past a large replica of China’s terracotta army and into Panda Village before stopping at the mini replica of traditional Chinese villages. Strolling through the park feels like reliving an ancient time in a land far away from the United States, which makes for a fun date night full of unexpected sights and adventures.

Little Woodrow’s

Fancy a little competition at a local watering-hole but are feeling bored of shooting darts or playing pool – then take a turn cheering on a few adorable creatures during Thursday night Turtle Races at Little Woodrow’s. The bar offers a night out like any other, where you can cheer on a little turtle with a wacky name as it “runs” its heart out. It may be unusual but that’s why we love it.

Iron Sports Houston

The perfect date night for any couple that enjoys watching American Ninja Warrior on their nights-in but is looking to get out of the house (and doesn’t mind sweating a bit). At Iron Sports Houston you can embrace your own inner ninja as you scurry, climb, and power through obstacles. You and your date can opt to sign-up for a class or just attend an open gym if you’re feeling confident. 

Tantrums LLC

A date night here is unlike any other – where raging doesn’t mean all-night drinking but rather losing control (in a safe way) while throwing various objects and debris in every direction. It may not be a good idea to break or throw things in “everyday life” but at Tantrums LLC breaking things is the name of the game. It’s also definitely the part that makes this activity completely unique and wildly fun.

Seismique

Seismique describes itself as a mind-bending art museum. It is a wacky and wild museum of the future that doesn’t just ask you to wander and look at beautiful paintings but requires you to be part of the art. The exhibits are interactive and immersive. Instead of several, differently themed galleries, Seismique is home to 40 unique “galaxies” that exhibit high tech and unexpected displays designed to stimulate your curiosity and imagination. Seismique is a great, one-of-a-kind place to play and enjoy the wonders of human creation.
