The Golden Bee
“My husband and I love that it’s actually an 1880s pub that was shipped panel by panel to Colorado Springs. Such history! We also love the crackers and pub cheese and the servers’ bee-throwing tradition. It’s just fun.”

1 Lake Ave, Colorado Springs, 80906
“My husband and I always choose Dos Santos on date night. It’s such a fun environment with the best margaritas and of course, tacos! I’d be lying if I said I don’t dream about those Chicken Tinga Chips!”
70 E Moreno Ave, Colorado Springs, 80903
“We go for dinner and a movie at the same time and they have gluten-free options for my husband. The chairs in the theater recline have heaters, and it is two seats per section in the theater so perfect for date night. They also have arcade games and a bar for after if you want.”
3030 N Nevada Ave Ste B, Colorado Springs, 80907
“I absolutely love the cellar at the Mona Lisa in Manitou. It’s smaller than the restaurant upstairs and offers a good, low-key atmosphere. They do live music on most Saturdays! My husband and I have gotten dessert fondue and it’s amazing.”
733 Manitou Ave, Manitou Springs, 80829
“My husband and I like to go get drinks and an appetizer to share at Phantom Canyon. We then play pool or darts for fun! “
2 E Pikes Peak Ave, Colorado Springs, 80903
Manitou Penny Arcade / The Cliff House
“The Manitou Penny Arcade is always a fun option. If you want a splurge, have dinner first at The Cliff House — a fun, historic hotel nearby. Once, we even stayed the night.”

306 Cañon Ave, Manitou Springs, CO 80829
“If you’re free on Tuesdays, Top Golf is the place to go! They do 1/2 price Tuesdays, which means a relatively cheap date night – even if you don’t golf, it’s fun!”
