Date Night Ideas to Warm Up Your Winter

The days are slowly getting longer but the nights are still just as cold… luckily we’ve got some date night ideas for you that will certainly warm up these cold winter nights.


Learn, Dine, Shop

Make it a three-part date night at Eataly Toronto! Start your evening with a class at La Scuola, Eataly’s in-house cooking school where you can learn the art of Italian cooking. After your class, reflect on what you learned by enjoying a meal at Trattoria Milano, Eataly’s newest restaurant inspired by the cuisine of Northern Italy. Trattoria Milano is also set away from the hustle and bustle of Eataly’s marketplace, so it’s the perfect place to enjoy each other’s company. While Eataly has tons of dessert options on site, for date night we recommend picking up a little something to take home from the marketplace to enjoy. Everyone deserves a little Italian chocolate after a perfect date night!


Love Story for the Ages

Spend a night together discovering a love story as beautiful as yours. Start your evening by heading to Indigo where you can browse the stacks with your love. Share your favourite books with each other and discover new ones before taking in a movie at Cineplex Varsity & VIP. Be sure to get the full VIP treatment so you can enjoy a cooked meal and a cocktail as you watch.


Take in the Views

Mark a special occasion with a trip up to the 51st Floor for a dining experience like no other. Enjoy each other’s company, the great food and unrivalled views of the city at The One Eighty. This special space makes it the perfect place to mark a milestone with your favourite person.


The Perfect Night In

Not into going out? Create the perfect night in with a trip to Indigo’s cookbook section where the inspiration for cooking a special at-home meal abounds. Treat yourselves to a new cookbook that you both think you’ll love and use and swing by Independent City Market to pick up ingredients for the recipe that intrigues you the most. Independent City Market’s wide selection means that no matter what your recipe calls for you’ll find it right here.


Shop ’til you Drop

They say that money can’t buy you love, but sometimes a little something special is exactly what the heart wants. Ensure your partner gets exactly what they want by shopping together and making a day of it. Bay Bloor Radio, Birks, Over the Rainbow and Shoppers Drug Mart’s Beauty Boutique are on the top of our treat yourself list, so be sure to check them out.


So no matter what your date night style, there’s something here for everyone. So make your next date night (or date day!) one at Manulife Centre and explore all our retailers have to offer.
