BEST DATE SPOTS IN OMAHA

One of the best ways you can grow in your marriage and keep your love and friendship thriving is to intentionally plan a date night every week. Date nights are intended for you and your spouse to check in about the week, to dream and laugh together, and to create a routine of growing closer to one another.

THIS MEANS THE LOCATION OF YOUR DATE NIGHT MATTERS.

It’s hard to deeply connect and spend uninterrupted quality time if you are in a crowded or loud space, if you are uncomfortable or disengaged, and oftentimes if you are in your own home. Getting out of the house and finding a quiet, cozy space is so crucial for having a successful date night. Here are some of Omaha’s best spots for connecting with your boo: (And this can all be applied to you dating and engaged couples too!)

When I typed the words “swanky cocktail bar” above, Proof is exactly what I pictured. This prohibition-style lounge features more than 300 premium whiskeys (if that’s your thing), and a large variety of wines, brews, and cocktails. I pulled my classic “can you make me something fruity but not very sweet,” and the bartender definitely delivered!

FOR DRINKS & VIBES

Whether grabbing a local beer at a no-frills brewery, or getting dressed up for a swanky cocktail bar, going out for drinks makes for a romantic date night. Will and I always “cheers” and take a moment to soak in and appreciate the present moment together. Bonus: grabbing drinks is a great option for when you want to eat at home, but still need to get out of the house free from distractions.

Chef Nina Sodji makes incredibly flavorful, slow-cooked African dishes inspired by the Togolese foods she grew up eating. With a menu of bowls, salads, empanadas, and more, there is something for everyone. My favorites are the black eyed-peas and sweet rice dumplings- and don’t forget the amazing homemade sauces!

FOR DINNER & CONVERSATION

Nothing can spoil a date night quite like a hangry spouse. Might as well eat good! Will and I have had some of our all-time favorite meals at these local, made-with-love eateries. And if you’re an herbivore like me, don’t worry- these spots all have amazing vegan options!

My jaw literally dropped when I walked into The Grove. That gigantic fiddle leaf fig will forever have a piece of my heart. For real though- this is such a quiet, dreamy spot, perfect for getting into some good conversation. Time truly slips away when you’re sipping a smoothie and chatting with your babe.

FOR DAY DATES & ACTIVITIES

We all know coordinating schedules can be tough, and there will be some weeks when we just can’t find a full evening to spend together. But if you can plan out a few hours on a Saturday afternoon, take advantage of it- a date day is still a date!

While all these locations create the perfect space for conversation and connection with your spouse, remember that it’s up to you to put down your phone, open up your ears, and grow closer together.

Have fun lovebirds!
