It’s hard getting away from the kids to have some one-on-one adult time. So when the planets eventually do line up, you’ll want to head somewhere memorable like these great date night places.
This is the perfect place to sip cocktails and share delicious, artistic Japanese dishes. I recommend a seat at the bar. The staff is incredibly friendly. Don’t be frightened if they give you an enthusiastic welcome when you walk through the door. Oh, and Saturday is Tequila night – just saying.

Now hear me out. Remember those cool Pink Floyd laser light shows the Vancouver Planetarium used to host? Well since their cancellation, the BCIT Planetarium and Roundhouse Productions has picked up the torch. Nothing says love like a trippy laser show and some hard rock to blow your hair back. Every Friday and Saturday night for $11.

If you’re looking for dinner and a show, try Kobe. It’s authentic teppanyaki-hibachi style cooking with something for everyone. I recommend the steak and lobster, or if you really want to splurge, the Godzilla. Vegetarian options are also available. This is a popular place, so make sure to reserve ahead of time to assure a seat.

Fresh seafood, an incredible view of False Creek and the best Whiskey Sours in town. What more could you want for a great date night out? Tons of plates to share – the Haw Gow shrimp dumpling or The Sand Barge filled with prawns, oysters, mussels and fresh crab is a must. Remember, you don’t have to share dessert with the kids, so White Chocolate Cheescake – you’re welcome.
