Winter Date Experiences
Top Winter Date Experiences
Does wintertime leave you resorting to movie marathons on the couch with your significant other or do you want to impress your new squeeze? With these original winter warmer date ideas listed below you can guarantee your date will be sticking around for round two. So ladies and fellas peel yourself out of hibernation and give one or all of the following a try.
Sauna and Spa
Why not steam things up by taking your date to a spa? Strip down and let the bubbles revitalize your skin. Once you are done in the spa head over the sauna and let the heated hut work it's magic. It has also been proven that saunas relieve stress and relax the muscles so if this is a first date or you have been together for a while, this is a great way to really be able to relax with your partner and appreciate the intimate and quiet conversation. Many gym facilities hold the traditional sauna and spa, such as the Sydney Aquatic Centre.
If you wanted a more luxurious experience you can also visit a day spa. There are many of these all over Sydney. Natures Energy with locations in Glebe and Balmain is a popular choice offering private spa and sauna experiences for a reasonable price.
Every girl likes chocolate. Men let me make that more clear, you will be hard pressed to find a girl who doesn't harbour a secret love for the sweet stuff we like to call chocolate. Indulge your sweet tooth at this fantastically located Cockle Bay Wharf Café, which also happens to be the first of it's kind in the world. With a delicious winter menu including a Lindt sharing platter for two and their delicious winter special Lindt Hazelnut Hot Chocolate, you are spoilt for choice with mouth watering goodies here. While prices here may be more on the expensive side, perhaps due to the location and quality of the chocolate, it is definitely a worthwhile place to take a date.
After your hot chocolate take advantage of being right in Darling Harbour and take your beloved on a stroll around the Harbour. Even if you are currently enjoying the single life well go there anyway. After all everyone should be able to treat themselves once in a while.
Gold Class Movies
Yes, we all know the movies is definitely not an original date idea but have you ever gone to the movies Gold Class? Gold Class takes your cinema experience to the next level. Gold class locations are all over Sydney.
Providing a more intimate setting as well as food and drinks on offer and the use of the on call waiter service, this is a sure fire way to spice up a traditional trip to the movies. If this is a date in the beginning stages of the relationship fear not as you recline back in your seats, with champagne and other beverages on offer you are able to relax and sedate those nerves. Offering an extensive and varied menu you are able to order such pub grub classics including, nachos, sliders, salt and pepper prawns and even sharing platters plus more. You won't go hungry and you probably won't be able to go back to going to the movies like a civilian again.
They say the way to a mans heart is through is his stomach and there is nothing better than a hearty meal on a cold winters night. Cooking classes are a great activity to learn together with your partner and even if things go bottom up in the relationship at least you have improved your cooking skills to impress the next one.
With a range of different cooking schools throughout Sydney you can find one to cater to any cuisine. So whether your preference is Mexican or Italian or you have a thing for desserts instead, you should be able to find one to suit your tastes. As well as being a great creative date you are also getting the added benefit of learning a new skill, which sure beats sitting at home flicking through Netflix with a takeaway.
Most cooking schools either offer group classes or private classes. If you find yourself turning into a bit of a Nigella or Jamie in the kitchen then why not take the date a step further and enrol in the cooking courses on offer? Bon appetit.
Whisky for two
Light a fire inside your heart in more ways than one with this whisky tasting experience in Double Bay. World of Whisky knows a thing or two about whisky, with different tastings on offer and an insight into the history of whisky and how it's made this is a great for any whisky enthusiast. So if your man or even your lady loves a tipple of the bronze stuff then why not book them in for a whisky tasting tour? It's an original and thoughtful date and can turn whisky novices into connoisseurs by the end of the tasting.
