Date nights can be few and far between sometimes, but it’s definitely important for couples to get out of the house and have some one-on-one time. While dinner and a movie can be fun, it’s great to step into some local taverns for a drink or two (or several ) to forget about life’s troubles for the night. From the most elegant of places to the laid back neighborhood dives, this list has some great bars that you are sure to love for a romantic night on the town. Here are some of the best bars across the U.S. that offer great drinks and experiences for you and your significant other.
1. Maxwell Park (Washington, DC)
Opened in 2017, Maxwell Park is a wine bar located in the Shaw neighborhood of the nation’s capital. Launched by sommelier Brent Knoll, Maxwell Park features over 50 wines by the glass, half of which rotate based on monthly themes. The bar also hosts regular wine classes to allow guests to taste and learn about six different wines. Definitely would make a great date night!
2. Hop Sing Laundromat (Philadelphia, PA)

This candlelit, speakeasy-style cocktail bar located in Philadelphia is very discreet and picky about who’s allowed in. However, the 70-plus drinks have gotten rave reviews and people enjoy the private ambiance Hop Sing Laundromat offers. Guests aren’t allowed to snap photos or take calls. In fact, over 1,700 people have reportedly been banned from the establishment, so be sure to behave!
