Guide to the ultimate date night activities in Edmonton

Have date nights grown stale? Skip dinner and a movie, and add some excitement with these dating activities instead. Whether your budget is big or small, you and your honey will be able to find something fun to do.

Kitchen by Brad

1
101-10130 105 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 1C9

Instead of going out for any old dinner, turn the tried and true date trope on its ear by paying a visit to KITCHEN. Do a little bit of cooking (and a lot of eating) under the tutelage of Chef Brad Smoliak. The dinner (or lunch) includes Prosecco, wine and all the cooking tips and tricks you two can handle.

Segway Alberta

2
9735 Grierson Hill NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 2G8

If you and your mate are feeling adventurous, head down to River Valley Adventure Co.! Rent mountain bikes and roller blades or, if that’s not your speed, hop on a Segway. With more than 450 kilometers of trail to explore, this is a date activity that will never get old.

LaunchPad Trampoline Park

3
6142 50 St NW, Edmonton, AB T6B 2N7

Take your date to new heights at Launchpad Trampoline Park. Engage in some healthy competition with some one-on-one basketball, get lost in the foam pit, or bounce around with your beau freestyle. Save yourself some time and buy your tickets online!

TELUS World of Science Edmonton

4
11211 142 St NW, Edmonton, AB T5M 4A1

Head down to Dark Matters - an adult-only night of science experiments and cocktails hosted bi-monthly at the Telus World of Science. The events are usually themed, and feature a live DJ and tasty treats. Advance tickets run for $17, or you can pick them up at the door for $23.

Oliver Apt

5
10225 100 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 0A1

Unleash your inner handyperson at one of Oliver Apt.’s woodworking workshops. Depending on your budget, you can choose to build a serving board, cutting board or, for the more advanced couples, a bench. Oliver Apt. provides the wood, tools, and some snacks - all you need to bring is you and your guy (or girl).

Alley Kat Brewing Co

6
9929 60 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6E 0C7

Looking for a way to really mix date night up? Take your sweetheart on a free tour of Edmonton’s oldest microbrewery! Alley Kat Brewing Company would love to show you two around. Tours are offered Thursdays and Fridays, 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Edmonton Arts Council

7
10440 108 Avenue NW, 2nd Floor, Edmonton, AB T5H 3Z9

If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to treat your other half right, look no further than Artwalk YEG, an artsy stroll in downtown Edmonton. Long walks are perfect for hand-holding, after all. So, grab a map (available at the Welcome Center or online) and a java, and prepare to enjoy this self-guided walking tour through the heart of the city. Artwalk YEG is supported by the Edmonton Arts Council, the Albert Foundation for the Arts, Open Edmonton and The Places – The Works International Visual Art Society.

Rapid Fire Theatre Society

8
9828 101A Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T5J 3C6

Everyone knows the way to the heart is through the stomach, so grab your lady (or gent) and get ready for a night of gut-busting improv at Rapid Fire Theatre. Check out one of their weekly shows or plan to take in one of their four annual festivals. No matter which night you choose, you’re sure to laugh your way into a long-term relationship with this one.

If you’re looking for a casual spot to enjoy a social libation or a cozy space to recharge with caffeine, look no further. These cafés are one-stop shops, because you should never have to choose between coffee and cocktails. I think we can all drink to that!
