Call the Sitter! Time for a Winter Date Night!

Philly is full of fun for adults, not just kids! Head out for some alone time at one of these great spots!

The days of just going to dinner and a movie for date night are long gone. In Philadelphia, a night out can be whatever you want it to be. Even in the middle of winter, Philadelphia is bustling with unique activities for couples to enjoy. So get ready to call the babysitter, bundle up, grab your mask, and head out for a unique date night in Philadelphia. 

Rent Out A Bookstore for the Evening

Ready to “book” a date night that you’ll never forget? The Head & The Hand Bookstore in Kensington offers an exclusive package that allows couples to privately browse for 90-120 minutes. The date night package includes a table and two chairs, a curated playlist, complimentary beer or wine, 10% off any book purchases, and the opportunity to BYOF (Bring Your Own Food). Due to COVID-19, all guests are required to wear a mask when they are not actively eating or drinking. Visit the store’s website to learn more and to schedule your date night!

Take A Glass Blowing Class

Get your creative juices flowing by learning about glass blowing and design at Jim Loewer Glass Co. Visit the store on Carpenter Street to take a class with Jim himself or browse the gallery and purchase pieces to bring home with you. Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is required to participate in classes. Visit the gallery’s website to take a look at available pieces and book a private lesson.

Get Cozy At Alpine Heights

Get the complete ski resort experience with a beautiful view of the Philly skyline. Assembly Rooftop Lounge on Benjamin Franklin Parkway has transformed into Alpine Heights, a ski-lodge inspired pop-up, for the winter. Add even more romance to your night by snuggling around the fire, enjoying comfort food, and sipping a seasonal cocktail or festive beer. This venue has both indoor and outdoor seating, so COVID-19 restrictions may vary depending on where you are sitting. Visit the lodge’s website to learn more and make a reservation.

Date Night With A Twist 

Ready to take date night to the next level? Have an interactive and one-of-a-kind experience with your partner by participating in any of the ideas above. And if you’re heading out for a solo night on the town, you can also enjoy many of these activities on your own.
