Brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks are great places for dates, but what do you do when you want to go above and beyond? Houston offers a variety of unique date spots to enjoy, from wine tastings to rock climbing to scuba diving, all of which are guaranteed to get sparks flying. When you’re looking to meet someone special, try taking them to a special date spot with these one-of-a-kind, local date ideas.

Visit Texas’ oldest craft brewery Saint Arnold to enjoy a tour and tasting. Even take home a souvenir glass as part of your admission fee for an unforgettable date.
For sporty types: Ride your bike through the several Farmer’s Markets in town to pick up the best local foods with Bayou City Outdoors. Exercise while enjoying the beautiful scenery of Houston.
Race your date to the top of the rock climbing wall at Texas Rock Gym. A little fun and flirty competition is always a healthy way to start a relationship.
For those who want to enjoy the view: Enjoy beautiful panoramic views of Kemah, Clear Lake and Galveston Bay with a beautiful date on a Boardwalk FantaSea Yacht Cruise. Themed entertainment dinner cruises, party cruises and more will make this a night to remember.
Make your way to the Sky Lobby on the 60th story of the JPMorgan Chase Tower, a pivotal part of the Houston skyline and spend a moment feeling on top of the world with your date.
For the foodies: What could be better than tasting food recommended by Houston’s top chefs with that special someone on a walking food tour by Houston Culinary Tours? Explore the city like never before to learn some history and try great food that Houston has to offer.
Put your cooking skills to the test. To spice up your date, UrbanCHEF provides a hands-on experience for “chefs” with even the most basic culinary skills. Socialize after with a family-style meal in their dining room to eat the food you prepared in class.
For the artistic: Paint the town red! Pinot’s Palette is the perfect spot for a relaxing date night. Have a glass of wine while creating a masterpiece.

For a blast from the past: Instead of going to a typical movie theater, go back to the 60’s and see a movie at The Showboat Drive In Theater. Their tagline, “It’s not just a movie…it’s an experience!” will hold true every time.
