Date Ideas in Avondale / Irving Park Overview

Hot Doug's - Restaurant in Avondale / Irving Park, Chicago

Avondale and Irving Park aren’t the fanciest neighborhoods, but those looking for romantic date spots will be surprised at the hidden gems throughout the area. From the high-end to the sexy, restaurants and bars in the area are perfect for couples looking for a little atmosphere.

The most common date ideas in Avondale / Irving Park are in the hoods’ romantic restaurants. For those able to spend some coin, one of the city’s premier restaurants, Arun’s, is located on a completely unassuming street corner on Kedzie Ave. Once through the hidden-away door, diners find a four-star treat, one of the country’s best Thai restaurants. Couples have a great deal of privacy at their tucked-away tables, and the white-glove service will impress any dates.

For less money, atmosphere can still be had in droves in the neighborhood’s ethnic restaurants. The proprietor at Romanian restaurant/lounge Little Bucharest eagerly offers up free pick-up/drop-off service in his restaurant’s limousine, a fun perk on date night…especially after good Eastern European wine. Speaking of wine, upscale bistro Bread & Wine is a down-to-earth spot for established couples to get away for the evening.

On the sexy side of things, Ñ tapas lounge can be hard to find—that sign is only one letter long, after all—and its dim lighting and sexy beats let couples feel like they’re in their own little world.
