Whether you’ve been together for a while, planning a first date or just recently started going out, thinking of exciting things to do for those date nights can quickly become tiresome. But don’t worry, we have you covered: we have gathered some great date ideas to make that next quality time together that little bit more special.
1. Watch the sunset together
Thankfully, Glasgow does not lack gorgeous spots to catch the sunset, providing unbeatable views throughout the year. Just grab a blanket, your drinks of choice, and some snacks and head to one of the numerous parks around the city such as Queen’s Park, Cathkin Braes or Kelvingrove Park. Or, watch the sunset from the comfort of a rooftop bar, such as the RED Sky Bar overlooking River Clyde.
Experiencing your city in a whole new way can not only be a new way of bonding, but also finding out the real stories behind some of the famous murals around Glasgow. Adventure out into the alleys and hidden corners of the UK’s friendliest city and learn the tales of the local artists and world-famous figures that created Glasgow’s street art. The Glasgow Street Art Tour takes 1.5 hours, starting at The Lighthouse.
3. Chuckle at a stand-up comedy show
Make the most of Glasgow’s comedy scene by checking out some of the best comedy clubs, and you don’t have to break the bank to do it. The Glee Club offers award-winning stand-up comedy on Friday or Saturday nights. Guests can expect to see four acts each with names like Jay Lafferty, Ian Coppinger and Liam Witnail. Those who prefer to have date nights on Tuesdays can head to The Stand’s Red Raw, which is an open-mic night for beginners and seasoned comedians trying out new material. Tickets only cost £5, and you’ll have a cracking night no matter what.
Candlelight concerts have taken Glasgow by storm, taking place in historic and picturesque venues across the city. Experience your favourite artists like you never have before and get immersed in the romantic hues of soft candlelight. Guests can witness a string quartet playing tributes to artists such as Queen, Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Vivaldi and more, breather some fresh air into those well-known songs.
Topgolf is a modern golf entertainment experience and is a welcome addition to our golf-loving nation. Making it one of the best date ideas in Glasgow, you don’t need to be a pro in golf to take this on, as long as everyone is having fun while swinging some clubs. Visitors can enjoy tech-driven games, a generous food and drink menu, and a vibe focused on more play for everyone involved.
