We’re always in the mood for a little love. And a little adventure. Whether it’s in Los Angeles, Vegas or Miami, we’ve come up with some great date ideas perfect for new love, long time love and everything in between. Because we want you to impress without breaking the bank, we’ve provided some deals and discounts to go along with!

Los Angeles

Afternoon Delight
Swing by Silverlake Wine for a bottle of wine before hitting the Griffith Park Trail. A sunset picnic and aperitif after taking in the great outdoors is the perfect way to foster some flirty fun.

The Baller
For romance that will really woo, take advantage of the Date Night Special at SLS Beverly Hills. A gorgeous room for cozying up in and a $200 credit at The Bazaar by José Andrés will make for a night your date won’t soon forget.

First Date
For a low key but impressive first date, sample some fresh Californian cuisine at Hyde Sunset Kitchen + Cocktails. After you’re properly satiated, head across the street to Sundance Cinemas to catch the latest indie hit.

South Beach

Sur la Plage
For classic Miami romance, book a suite at the Raleigh Miami Beach and grab a bite to-go at the Coffee Bar. Hit the beach or lounge by the iconic pool. Sunshine and sea air have always been a powerful lover’s tonic.

Night on the Town
For an all encompassing experience, enjoy a show at Fillmore, where you can catch everything from The Nutcracker to an evening with comedian Seth Meyers. Not only that, but you’ll receive a complimentary cocktail at Dragon Lounge and 15% off dinner at Katsuya or The Bazaar by José Andrés when you present your ticket to the server. Check out this special HERE.

Sunday Funday
There’s nothing quite like sharing some Sangria to spice up a Sunday. Bar Centro at The Bazaar offers $25 pitchers from 5pm – closing, where you can enjoy the chic atmosphere and great small plates with your love interest.

Las Vegas

No [Walk of] Shame
Book a room at SLS Las Vegas for a night on the town with your hot date. If you get lucky there’s a complimentary breakfast the next day and plush robes to lounge around in.

The Local
Head for dinner and drinks at Cleo, casually glamorous Mediterranean fusion. The dim lighting, ambiance and plates designed for sharing will set the tone for a romantic evening. Afterwards, check out a different side of Vegas—Fremont Street Experience—where the city’s locals hit the town.

The High Roller
Play blackjack and roulette while enjoying José Andrés’ culinary creations at the casino at Bazaar Meat. Follow that up with a table at LiFE, the Strip’s newest and most notorious club experience. The world’s best DJs will rock the party while you and your date can dance the night away under the flattering lighting, killer vibe and sexy scene.
