Cozy Date Ideas

Every year, Valentine’s Day can quickly sneak up on us, leaving many to scramble to find the perfect spot for a date night. Thankfully, we have taken the leg work out of it, scouring the neighborhood for the best date night options for last-minute lovers.


True love is comfortable and cozy, and Pints Pub provides both in a unique setting for lovers who have known one another for years. An authentic British gastropub, Pints Pubs is also a brewer of authentic cask ales. Whiskey-lovers will appreciate Pints Pub collection of single-malt whiskeys, perfect for kicking your feet back, and sipping slowly to enjoy the sweet notes of Valentine’s night.


If you’re looking for a classy dinner, set inside a modern, yet soulful eatery, FIRE Restaurant & Lounge at the ART, a hotel may be your perfect date night. With a seasonal, rotating menu, signature cocktails, and warm fire pits dancing wildly in the chilly night, this beautiful and literally elevated restaurant (it sits 3-stories above Broadway) is a lovely spot for those kindling new romance.


There is nothing quite like spending your Valentine’s dinner in the lush, bright colors of Cuba. Enjoy skillfully crafted traditional Cuban dishes like Camarones Al Coco while sipping a freshly muddled mojito with mango. The friendly staff make this bungalow-turned-restaurant setting a truly exceptional experience, best enjoyed with a shared flan before heading home.

The Golden Triangle’s newest restaurant is located in the Denver Art Museum and bears the famous architect’s name. Jennifer Jasinski, a James Beard award-winner, is the consulting chef for The Ponti. A locally inspired restaurant, the menu is simple and clean, much like the design of the building surrounding it, but never lacking in flavor, color, and fun.
