SF Date Ideas Overview

Rickhouse - Cocktail Bar | Lounge in SF

There’s so much going on in San Francisco, planning a special outing for two won’t be that difficult. There’s many ways to stir up romance in the Bay Area.

If weather permits, an afternoon picnic at Golden Gate Park is sure to impress. From there walk hand-in-hand through the scenic green space to the California Academy of Sciences, which has a four-story dome that emulates all the levels of a real rainforest. Try to go on a Thursday for the weekly NightLife at the California Academy of Sciences, when 21+ lovebirds can enjoy the museum’s ever-changing series of themed events and temporary bars set up throughout the gigantic building.

For a San Francisco date idea that foodie dreams are made of, Absinthe Brasserie & Bar in Hayes Valley is one of the highest-ranking restaurants in the city. A rendezvous that’s celebrated with a shot of absinthe is sure to make a lasting memory.

Another fashionable date spot in San Francisco is SoMa’s Press Club, a subterranean lounge and wine bar popular with chic crowds who like to sift and swirl. Or check out Fat Angel, a wine bar in the Western Addition where the cherub above the door seemingly invites all couples to step inside.
