Four Places For A Fun Date Night In Arlington

Dating is hard enough, so we thought we would make it easier by rounding up some of our favorite date night spots here in Ballston, just steps from The Maxwell:

1. Rustico

The vibe here is almost enough reason to go. But be sure to make a reservation! Being one of Ballston’s newest additions, expect a wait during peak date-night hours. With 30 beers on tap at any given time, Rustico is the perfect spot to take any beer lover too. And if, for some reason, you forget to make a reservation and want to have a chill night at home, you can take home a large bottle of your favorite beer (and one of their nine, hand-crafted pizzas, of course).

2. Republic Kitchen & Bar

Republic Kitchen & Bar has more of a casual ambiance, but the food is far from casual. Think elevated, comfort food made with the freshest, local ingredients. Republic Kitchen & Bar has great reviews online as well from previous diners.  We’ve also heard they have a great Happy Hour too!

3. The Melting Pot

The Melting Pot is a classic when it comes to date night. It doesn’t get much more romantic than fondue does it? Plus their menu allows you to order 1, 2, 3 or 4 meal courses, so you can control how long you want date night to last – This is a big plus in our book!

4. Mussel Bar & Grille

There’s no better way to impress a sea-food lover than to take them to a gourmet mussel bar featuring over five delicious types of mussels to choose from. Much more than mussels, Mussel Bar & Grille offers a wide-range of casual dining fare Mussel Bar & Grille is place to eat a good meal in a stylish and comfortable setting.
