Fall has arrived, which means it's easy to get stuck on Netflix and PJs for date night. But San Antonio is booming, and there are plenty of places to go for a romantic fall date. Here are five things to do for a change of scenery and a little bit of romance.
For the fun-loving couple: Bowl & Barrel
Located at the Rim, Bowl & Barrel offers a whole lot of fun for the couple with a competitive streak. Rent a lane, bowl a little (or a lot), and grab a bite, all in the same night — and at the same locale. Now that's our kind of date night.
For the foodies: Cooking class or dinner at the CIA
We're lucky to have the Culinary Institute of America in our backyard. Take advantage of one of the CIA's tasty cooking classes, like Food and Wine Pairing 101. Or sign up for an unforgettable six-course dinner on October 28 where esteemed chefs Danny Bramson, Diego Biondi, Isadora Diaz, and Camila Moreno will create a beautiful meal with wine pairings from experts Alejandro Iglesias and Fred Dexheimer. Reserve a space for the dinner here.
For the jazz enthusiasts: Jazz, TX
There's not much sexier than an evening of smooth jazz, creative cocktails, and tasty bites. Nestled in the Historic Pearl Brewery, Jazz, TX is a top-notch club showcasing jazz, blues, swing, and salsa led by local bandleader Doc Watkins. There's a full bar and kitchen too. Book reserved seating for your romantic evening online.
For the old souls: Tony Bennett at the Majestic
It's not often a music tycoon such as Tony Bennett rolls into town. The music legend will perform at the Majestic Theatre one night only, December 4. Purchase tickets now.
For the active duo: Rent bikes downtown
Our city's B-cycle stations allow adventurers to rent bikes at one of 58 stations throughout the city and return them to any location. Pick up your bikes outside the San Antonio Museum of Art, and after a quick visit, ride to The Luxury for a bite. Finish your ride along the River Walk, and stop at the romantic Ocho at Hotel Havana to quench your thirst.
