You swiped right. You matched. You messaged for a few hours, had great chemistry, and now you’re ready to meet in person. Finding someone on a dating app who is willing to take the connection from pen pal status to an in-person meetup is miraculous. However, finding the right place to meet your match for a first date is also a challenge. This person is a complete stranger, after all, so you definitely want to keep the meetup in public where you both feel safe. You also don’t want to invest a lot financially, just in case the date does not go as planned. Plus, you want a spot that is conducive to good conversation. There is so much to consider, it can be overwhelming! Well, you can stop the research – we did it for you. Here are five of the best places for a first date in Las Vegas.
Makers & Finders in Downtown Las Vegas
For some single adults, a cup of coffee seems like the least intimidating type of date. It’s inexpensive, friendly, happens early in the day and usually doesn’t involve alcohol. If you and your new match opt for this route, skip the corporate chain choice and select a spot that offers coffee with personality, such as Makers & Finders in the hipster setting of Downtown Las Vegas. This urban coffee shop not only features craft coffee but also showcases Latin comfort food. Plus, its prime location is perfect for an after-coffee stroll, should you and your date desire to linger a little longer.
High Roller at LINQ
Take in a Vegas view together with a 30-minute ride on one of the most exciting attractions in the city. The High Roller is not your typical ferris wheel, but rather a unique, memorable experience on a rotating observation wheel that surpasses the height of the London Eye. Whether you go during the day or at night, you and your date will have just enough time, from waiting in line to riding inside your glass-enclosed cabin (which you will share with others, so you won’t be left alone) to chat, get to know one another, and maybe even hold hands as you pause at 550 feet above the Las Vegas Strip.
Topgolf at MGM Grand
The excitement of sports not only builds a sense of camaraderie but it can also bring together a community, which can encourage two extroverts on a date who enjoy groups of people and making new friends. More than just an ordinary sports bar, Topgolf offers visitors the opportunity to reserve bays for competitive games. Now’s a great time to show off your swing. And if neither of you are not very good at golfing, no worries. Hang out bar-side, order a beer and watch a game on one of the many available big screens.
Culinary Dropout at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
What better way to bond with your date than over a plate of pretzels and a bowl of fondue? While the menu at Culinary Dropout is chock full of rule-breaking selections, the gastropub is especially prized for its soft pretzels and provolone fondue snack, craft cocktails and no-uniform-wearing staff. Dress casually and enjoy the fun-loving and rebellious ambiance, which will put any first-date jitters at ease.
