In Bozeman, you don’t need a special occasion for a date night. With so many options for both relaxation and excitement in downtown Bozeman, you’ll take any opportunity to celebrate with your significant other. Mountain views, indulgent accommodations, and vacation vibes are sure to put you in the mood for romance. So, now is the time to get out of your Netflix-and-take-out rut and experience something new! Staying in one of VRBozeman’s vacation rentals, you’ll be right in the center of it all. Let these ideas inspire you to rekindle the romantic spark during your stay under the big sky.
Explore the Culinary Scene
For the foodie (or anyone who enjoys food, for that matter), Bozeman has culinary experiences for every taste. Head downtown for upscale dining and local fare, like a juicy, grade A bison tenderloin with caramelized whiskey onions at Open Range. Urban Kitchen serves modern farm-to-table cuisine such as grilled Montana pork chops with jalapeno corn pudding, or rich wild mushroom risotto. If you have a craving for quality Italian food, Blackbird Kitchen serves innovative, thin-crust pizzas, delicately roasted vegetable dishes, and seasonal desserts.
If you’re feeling adventurous, try your hand at being your own chef. Establishments like Claudia’s Mesa and the Bozeman Supper Club offer one-of-a-kind cooking classes for a more interactive date. They also host multi-course dinner parties that allow you to experience the cuisine and community of Bozeman in a new way.
Relaxing Spa Day for Two
Need some R&R? Treat yourself and your significant other with a day at one of Bozeman’s high-end spas. On the east end of downtown Bozeman, you’ll find Indira Spa & Wellness, where you can relax and let go. Indulge in a couple's massage, skin treatments, or manicure and pedicure. Renew your energy and your love with a rejuvenating experience for two. Afterward, float on over to Townshend’s Teahouse for handcrafted loose-leaf tea, kombucha on tap, or bubble tea. Choose from more than 30 tea varieties, or indulge in one of their signature tea lattes.
If you’re leaning toward a more lively, boozy date, map out your own cocktail crawl of bars in downtown Bozeman. Choose three or so bars you’re dying to visit and see where the night takes you! PLONK is a swanky classic with an elegant outdoor patio and live jazz music on the weekends. Though known for its impressive wine list, its cocktails are also spectacular. Squire House is one of the new kids on the block, serving up classic cocktails with a twist, along with Nina’s Tacos which pours tangy margaritas and a lengthy list of tequilas and mezcals. Bozeman Spirits Distillery offers the opportunity to try a number of their locally-made spirits in creative cocktails, including single-barrel bourbon and huckleberry vodka. Whatever spots you choose, you’ll enjoy experiencing the bustle of downtown Bozeman at night.
Watch the Sunset
Sunsets over the sea of mountains in Bozeman are glorious. Fortunately, the best sunset view in town is only a few blocks from Main Street on Peet’s Hill. Stop by Maven’s Market for some fancy snacks and cheeses (and Le Chatelaine Chocolat Co. for some treats), and have a picnic on the hill. Sitting out on a blanket on a clear night, you’ll see Bozeman from up high, along with several mountains, including the Bridger Range, Tobacco Roots Range, Spanish Peaks, Hyalite, Mount Ellis, and Chestnut Mountain.
A Night at the Theater
Downtown Bozeman’s historic theaters are staples of Main Street, with their neon signs and ornate facades. Shimmy along with your significant other to a concert at the Rialto from its upper balcony, beer in hand. This venue draws a variety of musicians from all over, ranging in genre from hip-hop to alt-country. Or see a musical or play at the newly renovated Ellen Theatre, a classic community theater that was built by one of the founding families of Bozeman in 1919. Round the evening off with dinner and a drink, and you have yourself a romantic evening.
