Ahh, February. The month of romance and all things hearts and chocolate. While most of us are waiting for the day after February 14th to snag discounted chocolate covered strawberries at the local Kroger (yes, we DO need 12 dozen delicious strawberries for $5.00, thank you very much!), there are plenty of people who love to celebrate the coming of the cherubic winged infant shooting arrows at its latest victim. Lucky for you, we have rounded up a list of the absolute best date night spots in Nashville.

Nashville is chock-full of great spots to find delicious eats and intimate environments – think dark, candlelit, and perfect to swoon over your loved one across the table as you eat some world-class cuisine. And, no matter what side of town you live on, you will have access to the best places – some reservations may be required though. If you are planning a big V-Day date night, make sure to plan early – Nashville is notorious for long lines at the most popular places.

Best Modern Nashville Date Night Venues

Hemingways Bar & Hideaway is one of our top picks for a romantic date night in Nashville (reservations recommended during busy times). This dimly lit and cozy atmosphere is lively, yet intimate and the serving staff always seems to be on point. The Wedgewood-Houston joint has been a top-rated culinary adventure since its opening in 2017 and the eclectic and ever-changing seasonal menu is delicious and comforting.

For a more unique date night in Nashville, consider the Greenhouse Bar in Green Hills. Tucked away behind Trader Joe’s, this bar is literally housed in a greenhouse and will have you sipping and enjoying the night among shrubs. It is the perfect spot to grab a drink or two before heading out to dinner or a great place for a first-date meeting spot. It has a quieter and calmer atmosphere and plenty of seating that encourages you to be one with nature.

The semi-private atmosphere of Cabana is one of the best romantic date night spots in Nashville. Each cabana offers a tv – you can bring your own movie to play or catch your favorite sports team. And, if you want to play DJ, you can also listen to your own music. Reservations are most definitely encouraged here, especially around the 14th and especially for access to the cabana seating.

Historic Venues in Nashville

If you are looking for a more historical location, check out the Geist Bar + Restaurant in Germantown. This cool venue is housed in a circa 1900’s blacksmith shop and is one of the city’s oldest buildings. The atmosphere is comfortable and charming and the drinks, appetizers, main courses, and desserts are pure perfection.

For another historical experience, a date night at the Sinema Restaurant + Bar is a must. Featuring classic American cuisine, Sinema is located in the historic Melrose Theater, which opened in 1942. This award-winning eatery offers a full-service bar called The Lounge, as well as more traditional seating in the main restaurant. If you are looking for a romantic V-Day date night, you have to check out (and purchase tickets for) the All You Need Is Love Valentine’s Day dinner event.
