Maybe you came to Durango with the whole family and you need a night off, or maybe it’s just you and your significant other all vacation long! Either way, check out our ideas for date nights you won’t soon forget with these Durango activities.
P.S. All of these spots are also girls’ night and boys’ night-approved!
Few things in life compare to soaking in warm, mineral-rich pools between snow-covered peaks under the stars. It may sound like we’re retelling a story from a great romantic novel, but Trimble Hot Springs here in Durango offers just that. The springs are open until 8:45 p.m. daily (except for Wednesdays!) and there are a variety of spa treatments available to take your relaxation to the next level. So, whether you decide to come here after a great evening on the town or the slopes, or simply spend your night here winding down, we can’t recommend it enough.
If you and your sweetheart are on the hunt for a romantic evening out, look no further than Eolus on Main Avenue. As one of Durango’s most upscale dining experiences, Eolus offers rooftop dining and craft cocktails that are sure to make your night. Don’t be scared off by the word “upscale,” though! While the food is an exquisite contemporary take on American cuisine, the atmosphere is rustic and homey. The perfect combination of great flavors and ambiance make Eolus a great date night spot. And please, for us, save room for the Hot Doughnuts (beignets) for dessert!
The Bookcase and Barber is the perfect way to end your evening out or a one-stop-shop for an unforgettable cocktail. This tiny, intimate speakeasy is an absolute must-see. Yes, we said speakeasy! Inspired by 1920s America when prohibition was alive and well, this hidden gem offers artfully crafted cocktails behind closed doors. In fact, you need a password to get in! (Don’t worry, you can find it on their Facebook page). Since this place is popular, we suggest making a reservation ahead of time if you can, although, you won’t always need one. Choose from a book full of handmade concoctions and watch as the bartenders get to work crushing the ice and muddling herbs by hand.
