Whether it’s your first date or your thousandth, there are countless ways to sweep your partner off their feet in Milwaukee. 


Under The Stars 
Take a stroll hand in hand on the RiverWalk to Vault. The premier cocktail and raw bar is located in the heart of downtown and rests high in the sky, 50 feet above the Milwaukee River, affording spectacular views. Watch boats float along on the river from the three-season terrace while enjoying a prohibition-style cocktail and fresh oysters before a show in the Milwaukee Theater District

Table For Two 
Reserve your romantic night for two and devour a sensational meal at Carnevor Steakhouse, a downtown haven for culinary connoisseurs. Savor the flavors of USDA Prime and Japanese Wagyu beef and fresh seafood, complemented by an award-winning wine selection in the restaurant's warm and inviting ambiance. Or, head to the Café Benelux, where the wonderfully warm and cozy for two rooftop Lux Domes overlook the Historic Third Ward and the Milwaukee Public Market. Enjoy a private and memorable outdoor dining experience even in the winter. 


Chocolate & Wine Pairings 
Visit Indulgence Chocolatiers at their shop and chocolate pairing bar in the Walker’s Point neighborhood to taste delectable confections thoughtfully paired with wines, craft beers, cheese or whiskey. And if you can manage to take your eyes off each other, you can even watch the chocolatiers at work in the kitchen. 


Dive Into The Love Bowl 
Snuggle into a dark booth and transport yourself back in time at At Random in Bay View. With its low lighting and vintage vibe, this iconic cocktail lounge is the perfect spot to share its signature Love Bowl cocktail for two. 


Rooftop Dinner & View At The Outsider Bar 
Take the romance up a notch at the rooftop of the Kimpton Journeyman Hotel with a visit to The Outsider. This swanky bar is set nine stories above the trendy Historic Third Ward with a glowing fireplace and patio lights to help set the mood for drinks and a nice variety of shareable plates. 


Cooking Class At Milwaukee Public Market 
They say the road to the heart leads through the stomach. Take a cooking class at Madame Kuony's Kitchen in the Milwaukee Public Market taught by one of the market's vendors, area's top chefs or instructors with your partner. Try something different and maybe even discover a new favorite dish. 


Couples Seafood Pot 
Set in a bright, spacious, New England-style seafood restaurant, Harbor House offers the freshest seafood flown in daily from both coasts, including the perfect date-night selection: the Seafood Pot for two. This dish is brimming with lobster, crab, shrimp, mussels and sausage, all nestled in a clam and bacon broth. Enjoy it on the seasonal outdoor patio, complete with a full bar and unparalleled views of the lake and Milwaukee skyline.
