A Guide to the Ultimate Date Night in Vacaville, California

Date nights should be fun, not stressful! We've made it simple with a list of favorite spots for a perfect night out with your significant other in Vacaville! Whether you want a classic dinner and a movie, to go out for drinks, or try something different (laser tag, anyone?), there is something for every couple in Vacaville!

For Dinner…

Merchant and Main

 

Located right in the middle of Downtown Vacaville and a favorite among locals, Merchant & Main is always a good choice for a dinner date. Choose to sit inside or outside on their patio for a special romantic evening. After, take an evening stroll through downtown and enjoy the historic homes along tree-lined Buck Avenue.

Tip: Split an order of baked brie to start, then follow it up with a classic steak or the 49er chicken salad - a Merchant & Main original!

For Drinks…

Cuvee E

 

What better way to unwind and recharge after a delicious meal than wine, bubbles, and brews? After dinner, take a stroll over to Cuvee E for a vast selection of local wines and beer. This wine bar, located in downtown Vacaville, is an ideal spot for a relaxing evening with your S/O! Share a wine flight while you sink into luxuriously cushy armchairs in this intimate little bar, if you're lucky you may even be treated to live music from one of many local musicians.

Tip: Cuvee now has a fully revamped food menu, so they are also a great option for dinner!

Up for trying something new? Take your date to Peace, Love, & Boba to try some of their liquid nitrogen ice cream! With flavors like dole whip, jackfruit, and lavender matcha, you’ll be guaranteed to find something new and interesting on their menu. After all, nothing says love like ice cream!

Tip: the ice cream menu changes often! Be sure to follow them on Instagram (@peaceloveboba) to see what your flavor options might be.

Who says that kids get to have all of the fun?
