Date Night in Knoxville

How many hours have we all spent planning out the perfect date? Whether it’s the first or the fiftieth, it seems to be a daunting task that renders many of us, men and women, overwhelmed by the pressure to get it right. Lucky for you, we’ve got you covered. We’ve got seven date night (and day!) ideas that will impress your one and only.

Get Competitive

Stave off any first date jitters by checking out Token Game Tavern. Get to know each other’s competitive side over a friendly game of Foosball and bond over the nostalgia of the pinball machines. This place is the perfect go-to for a first date. It’s hard to feel nervous or awkward over a game of Donkey Kong! Token Game Tavern also offers a full menu so no need to plan for a dinner option. Pro-tip: you will learn a lot about a person by how they take losing at a game of Pac Man.

Go Vols!

Watch our beloved college team kick some butt while spending time with your beloved. A Tennessee Vols game is a fun date idea all year around. Whether it’s a baseball, basketball, or football, there’s always a fun game to attend. Grab some beers before the game, share a plate of nachos, and cheer on the guys in orange and white. Whatever the final score is, you’re sure to look like the winner with a date as fun as this.

Koala-ty Time

If you both have a soft side for animals, this date idea is a no-brainer. With a tagline that reads, “Wildly Fun,” a great date at the Knoxville Zoo is sure to be had. With a variety of animals, there will be so much to talk about and see here. The zoo even offers some educational programs and exhibits for added fun. If the Malayan tiger or the African lions aren’t enough, you can ride some camels to really make this a date to remember!

Get Educated

We know museums used to be the dreaded school field trip, but they actually make the perfect date. Whether it’s a science, art, or historical museum, these places offer a fun time for the perfect pair. Meander through different inventions, artists, or time periods while holding hands. Knoxville Museum of Art is perfect for the art enthusiasts. Impress your history-buff crush by taking them to The East Tennessee History Center! Make it a family date-day at the Muse Knoxville.

Fun in the Sun

Any local will know you can never go wrong with a trip to the Fort Dickerson Park. From the Civil War sites to the quarry and hiking trails, this is a great day-date idea. On the perfect sunny day, you and your S/O can make some great memories with this simple idea. Bring your bathing suits, pack a lunch, and don’t forget the sunscreen! If you’d rather stay out of the water, there are other things to check out. The park has some impressive Civil War sites and information. You can also check out the hiking trails for some adventures in nature!

Catch a Show

Buying tickets to a show at the Tennessee Theater is guaranteed to impress any date. Being the official state theater of Tennessee, you know their shows are going to blow your minds. Whether it’s theatrical or musical, a classic or something new, you and your date will have an evening to talk about for months. (Psst! If your date’s favorite show or performer is coming into town, buying tickets is an easy way to earn some points!)

The Classic Dinner Date

You can never go wrong with a bottle of wine, a nice dinner, and great conversation. Knoxville has dozens of restaurants that are perfect for a romantic night for two. Water into Wine offers live acoustic music every Saturday to set the mood. Echo Bistro & Wine Bar brings French cuisine to Tennessee; check out Cappuccinos if you’re craving something Italian. Slip on a pretty dress, pull out that favorite tie, and feel the romance in the air.

At the end of the day, you know what you and your partner like best. Whether it’s a cozy night in or a wild adventure, if it comes from the heart, the date will surely be a hit. Have fun and love it up!
