5 Unique Date Ideas Around Chicago

As crazy as this sounds, It's February and before you know it will be February 14th, Valentines day. Yes yes, I’m aware it’s “ a hallmark holiday”  that some people refuse to recognize. However, maybe some wouldn’t hate it as much if they did something different that didn’t involve the usual date stereotypes. Also, who says valentines day can't be celebrated with friends. Luckily, Chicago has many amazing places for those looking for a unique date.

Bottle and Bottega

Described as, “one part artistic adventure and one part cocktail party” Bottle and Bottega offers an art party featuring wine and a canvas. This is a perfect opportunity to show off your possible art skills to your date. The atmosphere is engaging and fun which will make this date memorable (depending on the amount of wine you consume).

City Winery Wine Tour and Tasting

Some might be more intrigued by the informative portion of the tour but I think it’s safe to say most people are mainly interested in the tasting. After all who doesn’t enjoy an opportunity to get a little wine drunk. The tour includes: “exclusive wine tasting not available to the public, a sample of City Winery-made wine upon arrival, a tour of our facility with a member of our wine team, [and a] tasting flight of three City Winery wines paired with three crostini appetizers”

The Social Table

This date is for the foodies out there. The Social Table hosts a “BYOB, dinner party style cooking class”. During the class you cook, eat and drink; and you don’t even need to worry about clean up. It’s a fun twist on the classic dinner date.
