Valentine’s Day Date Night Ideas in Nashville

Living in Nashville is such a fun place to be, from the vibrant music history, destination travelers, and delicious food. My husband, Daniel, and I love exploring the city and trying new date night ideas as often as possible. Being a Nashville elopement photographer, I like to be able to provide my couples with date night ideas in Nashville for after the wedding. It’s important to continue to date your partner and prioritize your marriage in all stages of life. Grab your partner and take notes for all the incredible date spots on my list!

Top Date Night Ideas in Nashville

Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co Tour

Olive & Sinclair Chocolate Co Tour is the perfect weekend day date idea in Nashville. They offer tours every hour that last anywhere from 30 to 40 minutes. Throughout the tour, you’ll begin to truly understand what it means to create Southern Artisan Chocolate while also taking a glimpse into the chocolate-making process. Before arriving at Olive & Sinclair’s make sure to buy tickets online and arrive with empty stomachs ready for some sweet treats!

Aloha Fish Co. Sushi Making Class

Another top spot on our list of date night ideas in Nashville goes to Aloha Fish Co.‘s sushi-making classes! Aloha Fish Co. offers three different options for sushi-making classes that vary from private classes (great for a group date), or two different public classes. I love Aloha Fish Co. as they have found a way to bring Honolulu to Tennessee. Fish is brought fresh from Hawaii, allowing for some of the island’s best quality and true taste. Their classes range from $65-$125 per person.

Candle Making Class at Paddywax – Date Night Ideas in Nashville

As a creative, I love being able to make things. Candle-making at Paddywax is so much fun and honestly kind of therapeutic! Paddywax has multiple locations from Colorado to Tennessee, with classes so you can make your own candles. The Gulch (Nashville location of Paddywax), offers a DIY Custom Candle Pouring experience for only $45! You’re able to enjoy a self-paced evening with your partner while creating something together. You’re also able to bring your own beverages to enjoy during the experience. Candles can be shipped to you if you’re visiting, or will be ready for pickup in 3 hours after your pour!

Cheese Pairing Class at Grey’s Fine Cheeses

Perhaps date night this week calls for a slower-paced, delectable experience. If you’re a wine lover, or simply just looking to try something new, take a cheese pairing class at Grey’s Fine Cheeses. They offer pre-scheduled classes on Tuesdays from $45-$125 per person. Allow yourself to experience a delicious journey of some incredible cheese pairings led by professionals. Take a break from the hustle and bustle of work and enjoy being present with your partner and trying something new together. Head to the link here to check their calendar for upcoming events.

Green Hour Cocktail & Absinthe Lounge – Date Night Ideas in Nashville

Not really into the idea of taking a class, but want to enjoy each other’s company? Head to Green Hour Cocktail & Absinthe Lounge for delicious cocktails and partake in their delicious mixed drinks. Most popular is their absinthe flight which allows you to choose three different absinthe drinks, to be accompanied with house-made truffles. A simple, yet romantic evening that is sure to warm you up while having some incredible sweets.

The Perfumery Workshop with Secret Garden Botanical

Last but certainly not least, a unique experience sure to awaken multiple senses, is the Perfumery Workshop at the Secret Garden Botanical. Creating your perfume will spark your creativity while you’re guided through organic botanical oils to make your perfect scent. This experience truly takes you back to historic French Perfumery methods while guiding you through various scents from saps, woods, fruits, and more. Enjoy a two-hour interactive class with a personal scent quiz, a crystal perfume bottle and so much more.

With Valentine’s Day coming up it’s time to get your date on the books! As a Nashville elopement photographer, I’m the biggest advocate for continuing to date your partner even after you say, “I do”.
