Get toasty beside Hotel Tango’s massive fireplace
Hotel Tango has become a runaway hit with their tasting room turned swanky fire-warmed bar for locals. It’s got a great rustic vibe, a rotating seasonal lineup of cocktails, and the smokey smell in the air from the whiskey and the crackling logs. There's no better date location for lovers of more more refined liquors.
Even if you lack artistic talent, signing up for a pop-up art class is a great way to show your creative date planning side, and the prices start at just $20 a ticket. You get all the paint-nose-dabbing, Ghost-pottery-scene, Nicholas Sparks crap you can handle with none of the commitment.
Make sweet, sweet macarons together
Though this is a much more luxe date than others on the list, you can get authentic, delicious desserts out of it. Learn to make authentic macarons from Circle City Sweets owner and pastry chef Cindy Hawkins. For $150, you’ll not only take home new skills, but also about $120 fresh-baked macarons to eat and share with friends -- or just each other.
