Make Your Valentine's Day in NYC As Special As Your Date
These unconventional date ideas are sure to make your partner swoon.
When February 14 rolls around, think outside the cliched box of pre-fixe dinners, champagne, and roses. This Valentine’s Day, cancel the overpriced restaurant reservation and wow your partner with one of these thoughtful, unconventional date ideas instead.
1. The Cliffs at LIC
Any adventure junkie would be stoked to spend a day scaling the walls of The Cliffs, an indoor climbing gymnasium located in Queens. Skilled climbers can race to the top, while newcomers may want to take a class to learn the ropes first. No matter your level of expertise, rock climbing is a fun way to get your date’s heart fluttering. Or is that just an adrenaline rush?
The Cliffs is located at 11-11 44th Drive in Queens.
2. Nitehawk Cinema
The overdone dinner and movie date combo is in desperate need of a revamp. That’s where Nitehawk Cinema, a movie theater in Brooklyn where dinner and drinks are served during the screening, comes in. Stop over this V-Day for an evening at Nitehawk, where you can enjoy a retro flick paired with cocktails. If Valentine’s Day goes well, bring your date back to the theater for a more casual Spoons, Toons and Booze outing, and they’ll be yours forever.
Nitehawk Cinema is located at 136 Metropolitan Avenue in Brooklyn.
