Whether you are planning a special anniversary celebration, Valentine’s Day outing, or just want to step up your date-planning game, LaGrange features something for you!
We recommend making a reservation at Venucci or Mare Sol for dinner. Grab a drink beforehand and stroll over to eat. Mare Sol is a casual and fun environment with great views of downtown and a menu that locals rave about. Venucci features upscale classic Italian fare, perfect for a special occasion and for the pasta-lover in your life.
Just want to jump to dessert? Then we recommend a pit-stop at Cafe Brûlée, where dessert should never be skipped, or enjoy a night cap at the Beacon Lounge, a cozy new bar attached to Beacon, and share a slice of chocolate pie and a cocktail.
Nothing says romance like a picnic. Pack a picnic for your honey and take them to the Callaway Memorial Tower. Built in 1929, the stunning tower is surrounded by a large green lawn and just might be the most romantic spot in LaGrange. Bring a pack of cards or a frisbee and enjoy the great outdoors together.
Keep the romance alive and finish your date at Nutwood Winery sipping on locally-made wines and strolling through the vineyard. Try one of their tasting options to sample several types of the wines together. The winery is picture-perfect and nestled among Georgia pines.
Sometimes the very best date means keeping it simple. When was the last time you were treated to a good old-fashioned movie date? Lucky for you LaGrange has one of the best, the “AMC Classic LaGrange 10”, located in a primetime spot on the Square. Look up the showtimes, grab a bucket of popcorn and get lost in the big screen.
If the night is still young after the movie and you didn’t fill up too much on popcorn, keep the date going for a sweet treat and coffee at Cafe Brûlée or walk over to the new ice cream shop in town, Scoops!
Sitting still not your thing? No problem. We have a few ideas up our sleeve. For the adrenaline junkie we suggest planning an outing to Chop House Axe Throwing on the Square (Opening January 20th, 2023). Just the right amount of thrill, Chop House Axe Throwing can add a little adventure to your next date night. The location is within walking distance of some of the best shops and eateries in town, so take the time to also enjoy a walk around town.
If axe throwing seems a little intimidating, take a spin at Sweetland On Ice before it closes for the season on February 14th, 2023! Every year Sweetland Amphitheater transforms into a skating rink for the winter season and offers concessions like hot cocoa and coffee. For $15 per person, you can rent a pair of skates and take on the ice together.
LaGrange is a great spot for music lovers, and there are several options to catch a live show. One of the best spots in town is Pure Life House of Music, a renovated warehouse turned music venue. Check out their schedule which is regularly packed with performers ranging from blues guitarists to singer-songwriters. Pure Life is brown bag approved, so bring a bottle of wine to share and enjoy a live show together.
Planning a Sunday date night? Beacon has live music every Sunday from 4-7 pm. Get there early and enjoy Sunday brunch and drink a local beer before listening to local musicians do their thing.
Sometimes small town charm is much more romantic than the big city. Soak up the charm of LaGrange and plan something special for you and your loved one! Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, take a hint from us and use our tips to plan a date to remember.
