Date Ideas in LA

There are so many interesting places in LA that you can go to for the perfect date night. Here are some of my favorite places and ideas for you to share! Let me know if you try any for yourself.

West Hollywood

Little Door
Modern European/French

If you’re looking for an adorable, private atmosphere, I always recommend Little Door on 3rd Street. It has the perfect romantic vibe for anyone looking for a quiet and intimate dinner.

The Laugh Factory/Comedy Store

Both of these comedy clubs offer a unique date night experience. If you’re into comedy and a night of laughter, I would definitely suggest coming to one of these for some quality date night entertainment.

EP & LP dinner + seasonal rooftop cinema
South Asian

Enjoy this rooftop-themed night! Start with dinner at E.P. & L.P., which has some beautiful rooftop views, and end with a movie at the Rooftop Cinema Club (seasonal).

Downtown

Grand Central Market + The Broad
Varies - a little of everything

If you live in LA and haven’t gone down to GCM, I suggest you do this for a fun date (day or night). Grand Central Market is an LA staple and they offer a little bit of everything with vendor and restaurant booths. The vibe is very casual. Then walk over to The Broad Museum to enjoy the latest art exhibits!

The Nomad

Want an LA staycation? Reserve a night at The Nomad. This hotel offers vintage 1920’s-style Los Angeles dining and bar spaces, with modern rooms.

Hollywood/LF

Hollywood Bowl

If you want a more concert/music style date night, I would highly suggest grabbing tickets at the Hollywood Bowl. You can find a little bit of everything in terms of music here. The outdoor amphitheater will give you a night you won't forget.

Black Rabbit Rose

This place is magical (literally)! Come here for drinks and enjoy a magic or burlesque show. This is probably one of the most unique places you can take a date.

Venice

Plant Food and Wine
Vegan

I obviously had to include a plant-based option. Come here if you want to experience minimalist and upscale vegan food. Then maybe head to the beach or to Rose Ave for some Venice Beach nightlife.

Scopa
Italian

Come here if you want a gastropub/bar style date. This is a super cute and hip place to take your date for drinks. Who can pass up Italian food and drinks?

Century City

Eataly + Movie
Italian

If you love authentic Italian food then look no further. Eataly was a hit in New York and now it’s in LA! It’s part market and part restaurant. You can get pizza, gelato, and anything your Italian heart desires here. All of it is imported directly from Italy. Head over to the movies next door.

Sunset Hike to Wisdom Tree and Griffith Observatory

If you love hiking, you definitely need to put hiking to the Wisdom Tree on your list. I would suggest Griffith Observatory to everyone. If you’re into hikes and great views, this is your perfect date. On a clear day or night, you can see all of downtown Los Angeles from either place.

Malibu

Malibu Wine Safari + Dinner at Nobu
Winery and Sushi

I went to Malibu Wine Safari and met the famous giraffe, Stanley, for the first time last year. It definitely lived up to the hype and I loved every minute of it. If we’re sticking to the Malibu famous theme, hop on over to Nobu. I promise this will be the best Japanese dinner experience you can bring your date!

Highland Park Bowl

A new thing I’ve started loving is this hip bowling place. It’s decked out in antique and vintage styles, but it’s also a bowling ally. This would be a cute, different idea that I’m sure your date would love!
