Date Night In Downtown Austin


So you can’t really hop on a plane right now, but you sure can escape to a tropical paradise! Catch an elevator up to Zanzibar, where they’ve turned their restaurant and bar into an island oasis. The cocktails are fun and the food is really good. The best time to go is literally all day, but the city lights sure do look nice in the evening!

Devil May Care

For a moody and intimate date night, there’s no spot like Devil May Care. It’s an out of mind experience just walking through the bar. Go to try their raw bar with some champagne, one of their fun cocktails, or (our personal fav) outdoor patio. We recommend you try this unique date night in Downtown Austin out for a double date!
