Date Night Sarasota

date night sarasota

Every once in a while, it is a great idea to sneak out for some time away from the kids. Date nights are not only good for marriage, but it is also a great way to explore the nightlife in and around Sarasota. Date night in Sarasota is not just going out for a bite and a drink or going to the movies. Try one of these fun ideas to mix it up and create a little adventure for that fun date night. 

Beach Bistro

Don’t waste time on a date night and head straight to the beach. Beach Bistro offers a view that will tear at any romantic’s heartstrings as the setting sun goes down over the water. Unlike other beach dining spots, Beach Bistro offers elegant cuisine like Floribbean grouper and lobster surf and turf. Never mind the romantic touch of impeccable service and the long list of wine and cocktails to round out the night.

Picnic at Ringling

After 5 PM, the grounds at Ringling are free. Enjoy a wander through the art museum before heading out for a private picnic on the grounds. Take in the majestic gardens and trees after many tourists have gone for the day. The mansion boasts amazing views of the water for a stroll before or after dinner. If nothing else, enjoy the quiet serenity of a sunset before heading out for more adventure and fun in Sarasota.

The Blue Rooster

This music venue is for entertainment lovers. Check out their fine southern cuisine any night of the week while listening to live blues music from top acts across the state and country. At the Blue Rooster, music is just the piece de resistance on a beautiful date night in Sarasota. Dig into fried chicken and waffles while sipping a cocktail. Don’t miss a post-date night nibble at Sunday Gospel Brunch.

Axe and Bull

Have an ax to grind? Why not take it out to the range – an ax-throwing range – that is? A fun activity for couples on a date night in Sarasota, Axe and Bull is a BYOB spot with several lanes to throw axes, have a few drinks, and dine on some fine fare of your choosing as you can bring your food or have it delivered. Note alcoholic drinking is monitored closely because who wants to be next to an ax-wielding partner (or neighbors to the left and right) who had a few too many pints while wielding a weapon? Safety first at this fun establishment for couples who like a little adventure.

Euphemia Haye

Operating since 1975, Euphemia Haye restaurant is located on Longboat Key. Secluded and quiet, this spot inspires an intimate experience for couples looking for a quaint dining space oozing charm. Upstairs in the Haye Loft, drinks, desserts, and a revolving door of musicians provide a backing track to an amazing evening. Walk-ins only so come early and stay late for an  evening to remember.

Go Cruisin

Whether you’re local or a visitor, nothing beats a night out on the water. Try a dinner cruise on the Marina Jack II where dinner is served with beautiful views of the water. Enjoy the air-conditioned interior or sit on the outside deck of this 96’ cruise vessel. Every seat has a view of the water and includes a bit of a tour along with the ride and a meal.
