Date Night in Dot

Love is in the air!

We promise, winter hibernation is almost over. And if you’re looking to treat your spring-fling or long-time-love to a night (or day!) on the town, we’ve got date ideas for every kind of couple.

For the Cocktail Lovers:
Yellow Door Taqueria
Rekindle an old or new flame over a spicy Rosita margarita or clink your glasses to a pitcher of Sangria. This intimate Lower Mills taco joint boasts one of the best cocktail lists in the city, with an expert bar staff to boot. Pair with a few tacos and you’ve got a match made in heaven.

Perfect for:  A night cap or just-because Margarita

For the Foodies:
Ashmont Grill
Only bring your special someone to this neighborhood gem if you really like them. And we mean REALLY. It’s that good. Ashmont Grill serves up innovative comfort food in a casual yet trendy setting, complete with local art, a smiling staff, and a sunny outdoor patio for when the weather finally heats up.

Perfect for: A laid-back brunch or cozy dinner

For the Sports Fans:
Boston Bowl
Head down to Boston Bowl, the 24-hour (yes, 24!) video game, brewery and bowling hub that’s sure to make both of you feel like a kid again. Plus, there’s a pub next door, which means loser (or winner) buys drinks.

Perfect for: Friday night fun or some “friendly” competition

For the Outdoors Enthusiasts:
Neponset River Trail
Get outside and ride, run, or walk the Neponset River Trail. This XX-mile stretch of beautiful scenery and breath taking views is the perfect spot to catch-up, chat, and explore. Rent bikes and prepare to show off your skills.
Perfect for: Sunny weekend adventures

For the Sweet-Hearts:
Chill on Park
Score your sugar fix with locally made ice cream, bakery goodies, smoothies, coffee and more from this Fields Corner sweet shop. Guaranteed to melt even the coldest of hearts…

Perfect for: A post-dinner treat or dessert-for-breakfast date

For the Old School Romantics:
Venezia Restaurant
With stunning views of the Boston skyline and a tried-and-true Italian menu, this Port Norfolk classic is a go-to for anniversary dinners, celebratory meals, and Lady-and-the-tramp style photo ops. (Just kidding…)

Perfect for: An extra special occasion or pasta craving

For the Craft Beer Couple
Dorchester Brewing Company
Good beers and good company—it’s what Dorchester Brewing Company does best. Try a tasting flight, take a tour, or join them for pizza and game night on Mondays. (The pizzas on them—a cheap date’s dream.)

Perfect for: Anytime beers or mid-week pick-me-ups
