One of the best things about living in Montreal is that there are so many great ideas for fun date nights. For those of us who have lived here awhile, we may have the tendency to get into habits. If you are looking for something new and fun for that special someone, you could certainly always bring them to one of our comedy shows in English at Comedyville Comedy Club. If the Montreal comedy club scene isn’t what you’re feeling, here are our five best date night ideas in Montreal.

Ferris Wheel & Food Trucks

A fun date doesn’t have to be super expensive. While you probably think of Old Montreal, or Old Port, as a more touristy area, it can be fun to embrace your inner tourist now and then. A ride on the Ferris wheel (La Grande Roue de Montréal) at sunset can be a romantic outing, providing some wonderful views of the Saint Lawrence River and spark a conversation. La Grande Roue de Montréal is the latest Ferris wheel in Canada.

Consider pairing this with a roving feast at the many local food trucks in the area. Pick a truck to share an appetizer at. After walking a bit, pick another for the main course and finally grab dessert at another. This can be a fun way to experience some variety and is a date that won’t break the bank.


There is something exhilarating about going to a speakeasy. Maybe it is the secretive feeling of the establishments. Perhaps it is just getting a window to the past. Whatever it is, having drinks at a speakeasy is a great way to break up the monotony of typical dinner & drink dates.

Fortunately, you will find many speakeasies throughout Montreal to choose from. You can find Le Royal underneath Le Rouge Gorge wine bar. Visit the website for Le 4e Mur to be sent the secretive address for this murder mystery bar known for its six rotating cocktails. Passthrough a men’s tailoring store and try pre-Prohibition drinks at the Maison Cloakroom, keep it classy at The Coldroom, and snack away at the Milky Way Cocktail Bar. You can also impress your date at the Atwater Cocktail Club, with the most impressive liquor selections in town.

Find a cozy spot in the expansive park for great food and better conversation. Afterwards, take some time to bike around the park or rent a paddle boat to enjoy time on Beaver Lake. This is another inexpensive date option that your significant other is sure to love and remember.

View Some Art

Montreal has a thriving arts scene, and I always think that a perfect first-date idea is to check out some art. There are many benefits to this. First, if the date isn’t going great, it is relatively easy to cut it short. However, if you are having a great time, you can easily make your outing last longer or even add on drinks & dessert after.

There are many ways to see art on a date. You can visit one of the many museums or galleries such as McCord Museum, Chateau Dufresne, Musee René Gagnon, The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts or La Guilde. You can also simply take a stroll through neighbourhoods or down Saint-Laurent Boulevard and enjoy looking at the city’s many murals. This is a great date for sparking conversation.

Embrace Your Inner Child

If you are looking for a true out-of-the-box date experience, consider spending the day at La Ronde. Try out some thrill rides and roller coasters then stroll around with hot dogs and cotton candy. This is a great afternoon for a couple looking to do something out of the ordinary and exciting.

If thrill rides aren’t your thing, a good way to have fun while feeling like a kid is to visit iSaute Montreal trampoline park or SkyTag, which features a trampoline park as well as laser tag. You’re never too old to act like a teenager for a few hours. After burning off some energy, consider finding a nearby restaurant to share a meal.

Dating in Montreal Doesn’t Have to be Cliché
