Check out a few of our favorite under-the-radar spots to spend a romantic evening outside of your American West home:
Lapis & Oak Spa and Salt Lounge: When was the last time you truly treated yourself? Although you never need an excuse, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to get out with your partner to experience pure luxury together. This spa specializes in “memorable and restorative” treatments that make you feel incredible long after you leave. Rejuvenate your typical date night with something special!
HeadzUP Vegas: If you and your partner are feeling fun and adventurous, HeadzUP off of the Strip is the place to be. With a Trick Art Museum, Escape Rooms, Archery Tag, DIY Workshops, and more, there are so many ways to shake things up and have a blast, whether you’re looking to do something athletic or artistic — or both! Not to mention, you’ll find the perfect backdrops for photos (#Instagram, anyone?)
Red Rock Casino, Resort & Spa: Located on W Charleston Blvd, Red Rock provides visitors with incredible entertainment, top-notch dining, and of course, endless relaxation. This Valentine’s Day, Red Rock is offering romantic packages, from “X’s and O’s” to “Dinner And A Movie!” No matter what you and your partner are looking for, this luxurious getaway is sure to make your holiday one to never forget.
Lunar Pottery: If you’ve always wanted to recreate the Patrick Swayze/Demi Moore pottery scene in “Ghost” (AKA the most romantic movie moment of the last 30 years), your time has finally come! Spend your Valentine’s Day at Lunar Pottery, and enjoy a special “Valentine’s Clay” package that includes hand building or wheel throwing with desserts, games, and raffles.
BLACKOUT Dining in the Dark: Leave it to Las Vegas to host one of the most creative dining experiences ever. Yes, patrons eat a delicious, multi-course meal entirely in the pitch black, with waiters wearing night vision goggles. Without sight, your other senses become heightened, so tasting your food and conversing with your partner will be unlike anything else. Designed to provide a “unique sensory journey,” BLACKOUT Dining in the Dark will be a date night you’ll always remember.
The Laundry Room: For those looking to experience “a new kind of downtown Vegas,” The Laundry Room nestled into the back of the Commonwealth is where you want to be. This sleek and intimate speakeasy, whose bartenders are known to create stunning, artfully crafted drinks that will blow your mind, holds just about 20 people. Perfect for those looking to get away from the hustle and bustle, and enjoy the comfort of a cozy, dark bar, The Laundry Room is one of your greatest options.
Away from the glitz of the Strip but close enough to your American West home are many options to make your Valentine’s Day as sweet as chocolate. Whether you’re looking for something active and adventurous or sensual and relaxing, there’s something here for everyone. We hope you love your best date night yet!
