8 Winter Date Ideas In Council Bluffs

Baby, it’s cold outside. Couples needing to step out of “Netflix ‘n Chill” date nights will find plenty of options in Council Bluffs, from dinner and drinks to arts and adventure. Get some tips for your winter dates with these 8 ideas. 

Get pampered at the spa.
Enjoy a relaxing spa date with your sweetie at one of the salons or spas around town. Definition Salon and Spa offers specialty massages including upgrades such as hot stone and aromatherapy. Ancient Wisdom offers Couples Massage so you can enjoy the relaxation together, in the same room. Life is tough, relax together. 

Find a cozy corner in a Council Bluffs restaurant.
Nothing pairs better than cuisine and conversation. And might we suggest a couple of cozy restaurants in town? If you’re into beer, Barleys is a sure bet. You can choose from a wide array of brews and mouth-watering entrees including a daily special menu. If you’re looking to wine and dine, Cellar 19 is your place. They have a wide selection of wine and a quaint menu full of fresh food including sandwiches, salads, cheese plates, and more. Or, if you’re looking for craft cocktails and something upscale, try 712 Eat + Drink. The chef combines some pretty rad (and delicious) concoctions like the fig and ham flatbread, and also offers delicious variations of chicken, steak, and seafood. 

Sip swanky cocktails at a super swanky spot.
Looking to get a couple of drinks? Swing by The Barrel for crafty, made-from-scratch cocktails. This sophisticated, two-story lounge offers a beautifully romantic setting and barrels worth of delicious drinks.

Get artsy with coffee and music.
They aren’t open late, so make this your first stop. Drips, located in Harvester Art Lofts, serves up pour-over coffee while giving customers plenty of art, records, and books to peruse while they sip. The feel-good vibes here are real. 

Score a hole-in-one.
At miniature golf, of course. Pirate Putt is not just for the kids, friendly competition is good for couples too. 

Cozy up in the recliners at AMC.
Get a beer there too! Get the good seats by purchasing tickets online ahead of time. The Council Bluffs AMC Theatre features recliner seating, reserved seating, IMAX, concessions, and a bar!

Catch a play.
Get cultural at the Chanticleer Community Theater in Council Bluffs. Did you know this theatre only hires local directors and casts local actors? 

Shake things up with a little thunder.
Get off the chair, slip on some of those cool shoes, and play a few games at Thunderbowl. McCoy’s has your food and drinks covered, so this place is the perfect one-stop-shop for those really cold nights. Park right out front and stay for hours!
