Get tipsy at The Punch Room
Since you’re already at The Ritz Carlton, you and your date should probably stop and have a nightcap at The Punch Room located on the hotel’s 15th floor. Your date night is sure to be cozy in this intimate 37-seat cocktail bar reminiscent of a 19th-century private club. Sip on thoughtful, hand-crafted cocktails and a selection of specialty punches – many of which are crafted with local herbs, fruits, and vegetables. Be sure to try their trademark drinks such as their signature-shaken Sweet Berry Wine or their signature-stirred Let’s Go To Mexico.
Munch on elevated gastropub fare at The Cellar at Duckworth’s
Located in an underground space originally built in 1912, The Cellar at Duckworth’s has a prohibition-era vibe with a gorgeous brick interior. Grab dinner and drinks before exploring the town at this classy establishment with elevated pub food. Enjoy a juicy steak, truffle mac and cheese, or duck pappardelle – all prepared with local ingredients by well-known chef Fred Quinones. Don’t forget to try their Nutella cheesecake for dessert. You and your date will feel like you’ve stepped back in time at this cozy speakeasy-inspired locale.
Catch a show at Visulite Theater

You’ll find big names come through this cozy and quaint theater so keep an eye out on the calendar so you can surprise your date with tickets to their favorite band.
Dinner, drinks, and DJs at Soul Gastrolounge
Head less than two-miles east for globally-inspired tapas, sushi, dips, paninis, and more at Soul Gastrolounge then make sure you stay to dance it all off during the late-night DJ set. You and your date can share plates like lamb lollipops, anchovy fries, or spanakopita then start your second course with one of their unique sushi rolls like the Soul Roll with spicy salmon or the Queen Charlotte Roll with tempura shrimp. You’ll need to save room though because the Soul Gastrolounge menu just gets better with Korean wings and a rotating hummus of the day. The good news is you and your date can dance off all those calories with nightly DJ sets.
