Tired of the usual Friday night dinner and a movie that you and your partner have grown accustomed to? Rekindle the spark in your relationship by heading out to one of these extraordinary date spots in Singapore. On this list we cover romantic outdoor options as well as exciting indoor activities guaranteed to bring back the magic between you and your significant other:
Art-Jamming at The Noteway Art Studio
Unleash your inner artists by booking a couple of art-jamming sessions at The Noteway Art Studio; the establishment hand-mixes their own fabric paint for use on shirts or tote bags. Couples who can’t differentiate the business end of a paintbrush from its handle need not worry—art-jamming is an exercise meant to stimulate creativity regardless of skill level, and the studio provides designs that you and your partner can always refer to. The art studio also offers sand art workshops, clay making, terrarium construction, and brush lettering lessons.
Check into Hotel Boss
Who says you can’t make one long date out of an entire weekend? Hotel Boss is the second-largest hotel in Singapore (right after the Marina Bay Sands) and is conveniently located at the heart of the city, within walking distance of Bugis, Kampong Glam, and Little India. Book yourself a staycation and experience everything the complex has to offer, from the lavish buffet breakfast to the stunning Sky Terrace on the 4th floor, home to an outdoor swimming pool, a fitness center, and quick massage chairs courtesy of Rest N Go. Hotel Boss is also home to two famous hawker center food stalls, Founder Bak Kut Teh, and Tian Tian Hainanese Chicken Rice. When everything you need is more or less under one roof, you and your partner have more time to reacquaint yourselves with each other.
A Round of Mini-Golf at Holey Moley
Combining booze and sports probably sounds like a bad idea until you’ve had cocktails at Holey Moley, a quirky mini-golf themed restaurant with no less than 27 unique zones all modeled after various pop culture references such as Game of Thrones, the Flintstones, the Simpsons and more. Put a spin on your usual weekend dinner by starting off with some drinks before heading off to tackle any of the three courses on offer. Once you’ve worked up an appetite, head down to the Caddyshack Bar for burgers, ribs, and more drinks—alcoholic or not, you take your pick.
Unite Against Adversity at Trapped Escape Room
Nothing strengthens a bond quite like a high-tension environment, and nothing creates high tension more than being locked in a small room together. Add terrifying music and special effects, and you and your partner have all the ingredients for a thrilling evening. At Trapped Escape Room’s horror-themed rooms, the mounting dread and sheer paranoia will have your adrenaline pumping, and the challenging puzzles will encourage you and your significant other to communicate openly in order to secure your freedom.
Let Loose at Bounce Singapore
Bonding through fitness activities is a great way to motivate yourself and your partner to stay in shape and be accountable for one another. You could sign up for gym memberships together, or you could head down to a trampoline park like Bounce—trust us, jumping off walls and bouncing up and down is a harder workout than it sounds. Warm-up at the free jumping arena, and then check out the dodgeball and slam dunk areas for some friendly competition. Get your cardio on with a 45-minute Bounce Fit class or learn the basics of parkour and free running at the X-Park section.
A Unique Spin on Dinner and a Show at Andsoforth
And so forth is less of a spot and more like an experience that takes you there—and it could be anywhere, really. You and your partner take part in a scavenger hunt where you’ll have to solve clues that will take you to the final venue, where the show is part of your dinner, and sometimes you are, too. Part of the show, not the dinner! Mounted by a collective of actors, set designers, writers, and chefs, these merry raconteurs, and bon vivant are shaking up the Singapore dining scene with some truly unforgettable nights.
Singapore is a city full of hidden gems, the likes of which are best shared with your better half. Whether you’re an active couple or more the type that enjoys quiet pleasures, there’s something here for everybody.
