5 unique date night ideas in Brisbane

  • Food & Booze
Date night ideas in Brisbane that will have you drooling instead of snoring. Dinner, movie, drinks. It’s the same old date night every week, probably at the same place too, either because you’re too stuck in a rut to change things or you really just can’t come up with anything more interesting. Before you go booking a table at the restaurant where they know you by name, and seeing yet another blockbuster sequel, check out our suggestions for some of the more novel (and delicious) date night ideas Brisbane has to offer. Brazilian BBQ | Mundo Churrasco | Bardon Nothing says ‘you are special to me’ like 16 kinds of flame grilled meats and Brazilian sides like caramelized pineapple and cheese bread. Clear your evening and feast on endless servings of pork crackling, spicy chorizo, chicken drumettes and beef rump with plenty of polenta chips and salad (as if you really need it) on the side. Paired with a few Caipirinha cocktails of course. Better yet, they have some weekday deals that will make you look extravagant but are actually totally wallet friendly. Beer, board games and BYO takeaway | The Scratch | Milton For the casual couple, it doesn’t get more relaxed than craft beer and cider, a friendly game of Scrabble and a pizza from Arriverderci or Jamaican jerk chicken from Jahh Tiger down the road. Until someone gets a triple word score and things just get wayyyyy to competitive of course. If that happens, just drink more beer. Rooftop movies, drinks and tapas | Limes | Fortitude Valley Cocktails and tapas followed by a long soak in a hot tub while you watch a good movie, all under the stars on a rooftop hotel. Sounds like the definition of romance right? That’s just what you’ll find on top of Limes of a Wednesday and Thursday night! Want to go all out? A bottle of Chandon might fit the bill! cowchdessertbarnakedpopMovie and dessert marathon | Various  | South Bank As much as we wish we could just go out for a three course dessert, we can’t usually tackle more than one sweet treat in a row. The solution? A marathon of cheap movies and desserts in South Bank! Start off with a decadent naked pop at Cowch, then head to movie no. one at the Cineplex. Finish everything off with a sweet Turkish hot chocolate at Ahmet’s and let the food baby do the talking for the rest of the night. Free comedy and Italian fare | Bar Alto | New Farm Too cheap to splash out on dinner AND a show? Lucky for you, the Powerhouse will take care of the show, with free comedy on Friday nights and live music on Sundays. All you need to sign for is the delicious Italian dinner and a few glasses of vino at Bar Alto, where the river views are complementary. We take no responsibility for the total lack of sheet action afterwards because of the resulting food comas. Words by Ranyhyn Akui
