5 Must-Try Date Night Ideas in Downtown Allentown

Turn Up the Heat on Date Night.

Date night should be anything but boring. It’s time to switch things up.

“Dinner and a movie” is a go-to date night idea that gets stale fast. When your SO asks you to plan a date night, surprise them with a night out in Downtown Allentown instead. You can always check out local events, but these 5 must-try date night ideas will definitely spice things up.

Show Off Your Crafty Side.

You don’t need to be a skilled artist to attend DAM that’s the BAUM at the Downtown Allentown Market. The Baum School of Art hosts a workshop every third Wednesday of the month. Your $15 ticket purchase includes a $5 voucher to the Market, so you get two dates nights in one.

Plan a Cutting-Edge Date Night.

If you’re looking for thrilling date night ideas, what’s more exhilarating than throwing an axe?

Split Pine Axe Throwing in Downtown Allentown makes it easy to book a session online. It’s also BYOB, so bring your own beer, wine, or cider. Afterward, you have your pick of restaurants in Downtown Allentown.

We recommend Sports & Social Allentown if you want to stick to a playful theme that night. They have an arcade and other fun games inside the restaurant. Make sure to reserve a table in advance.

Museum & Margs, Please.

The Allentown Art Museum is the perfect date night idea for art lovers. You can explore the different exhibits on your own or take a guided tour. Plus it’s FREE! (You don’t need to share that part with your date).

And you know what pairs perfectly with a Renaissance painting collection? Margaritas. Complete your date night at Tacos Y Tequila, which is just a short walk from the museum. You can discuss your favorite paintings over a plate of OMG Nachos.

Showstopper Date Night.

You don’t need to travel to NYC or Philly to see big-time acts perform. Downtown Allentown has your pick of perfect entertainment venues for a “dinner and a show” date night.

PPL Center is the best concert venue in the Lehigh Valley. You can see Grammy award-winning artists, comedians, hockey games, and more.

Or if you’re looking for something a little more low-key, you can purchase tickets for a show at Miller Symphony Hall. See the Allentown Symphony Orchestra perform live, catch a jazz show, or view one of their many upcoming shows. City Center Residents get 50% off their ticket purchase!
