7 unique date spots in Los Angeles

Whatup Los Angelenos! If you’ve already had your photos back from one of our kick-ass dating photoshoots, you’ll no doubt have a crazy busy inbox, teaming with date invites. If you’re stuck for ideas of where to go on all these dates, don’t worry we’ve got you. One of the many, many cool things about living in Los Angeles, is that you don’t have settle for boring dinner dates, there is a whole world of cool places and events to choose from to get your creative, dating juices flowing. Going somewhere a little bit different is always good in your early days of dating as it takes the focus off of the two of you and gives you something easy to talk about paving the way for more relaxing and fun dates. Check out these venues that our resident blogger, Amber, recommends.

Angel City Brewery

Angel City Brewery is a unique alcoholic experience. Graffiti and mural covered walls give out the urban, cool vibe in the historic building. The brewery also holds events, such as ‘tacos and trivia’, yoga, and board game nights that you and your date can bond over whilst enjoying the authentic LA craft beers.

The Dog Cafe

The Dog Cafe is a great place to socialise with a date, drink coffee and bond over cuddling with gorgeous lap dogs. All of the dogs at this cafe are rescue dogs- meaning that if you fall in love with a pooch at this cafe, you could be it’s new forever home!

Rooftop cinema club

Sat on a rooftop with stunning LA city skyline views, cosy deckchairs and blankets, iconic movies playing, along with cocktails and snacks, Rooftop Cinema Club is definitely one of the coolest date ideas in LA for you to take a date. With a choice of two great locations, there’s no excuse not to go.

Electric dusk drive in cinema 

For those of you who want to recapture the same kind of dates from their misspent youth, check out Electric Dusk Drive-in, the retro themed drive-in cinema, which regularly shows films from the 80’s, 90’s, and 00’s. American high school teen vibe, anyone? Perfect for a more intimate cinema date!

First Friday 

Although this is restricted to the first Friday of every month only, it is definitely an event you don’t want to miss. Premier food trucks line Abbot Kinney Boulevard (somewhere we love so much, it’s one of our favourite Hey Saturday dating photoshoot locations) with innovative, interesting cuisines along with all-time classics,  you really are spoilt for choice! Enjoy the new cuisine with your date on the picnic benches located nearby, a unique date, knowing it’s only every so often.

Cartwheel Art’s Underground LA tour

Ooh we’re huge fans of Cartwheel Art’s Underground LA tour,  have you been yet? It’s one of the most interesting, highly rated tours in LA. It explores the city’s underground past, visiting old, abandoned speakeasies and century-old tunnels. Definitely a cool date for those of you who thrive off of spooky stories and historic tales, like we do.

Maze Rooms Los Angeles

So many rooms, so little time. At the Maze Rooms in Los Angeles, you have a wide range of themes to choose from including pirates, zombies, Jack the Ripper, a motel, prison you name it. Our personal favourite is the vampire one (hello Edward Cullen lol). If you haven’t done an escape room yet, it’s worth doing just because everyone should have a go. Once you enter the escape room, you’re straight into a storyline with a whole lot of puzzles to solve so imagine that on a date with someone new! What a great bonding experience for you both. Nothing like working together on the same team to bring you closer.

 

Cool words by Amber, awesome photos by Anna for Hey Saturday, Los Angeles.

Just want to stop and appreciate the words of the very smart Mr Wilde.

If this ain’t a reason to break outta your comfort zone, I don’t know what is. Now excuse me while I head off and create another really bad painting & push myself right out my comfort zone in the process 😉

I’m putting my money where my mouth is here as I’ve started painting for the first time since I was a kid. Yes, I’m not going to lie - I’m not great at it and it’s frustrating when the paintings don’t end up the way they look in my head (or anything like that). But that’s because it’s week one with only a couple of ‘how to paint’ YouTube videos under my belt and pure instinct. But I’m excited for where this might go. Painting feels like a coming home for me. I hate being bad at something but I like feeling brave... well .. being brave. It makes me feel I can do anything. What are you being bad at right now?

I love this quote from Derek Sivers, flipping fear on its head and reminding me why I need to keep going with the stuff that’s giving me the fear. I can get on board with fear, when he puts it like this. Anyone else feeling fear/excitement about something they’re working on? I hope this helps 🙏🏽🙌🏽 #dowhatyoulove #youareenough #lovelife #youareworthit #creativevibes #goodvibesonly #startup #entrepreneur #brand #personalbranding #creative #Selflove #selfworth #loveyourselffirst #loveyourself #youareabadass #badass #loveyourlife #dating #single #photographer #datingphotos #mindsetreset #psychology #badassery #onlinedating ...

Anyone else feeling like this? I’m building a website this week and it’s all gone a bit messy. But from the mess, I’m slowly getting some clarity. So slowly though. Why do I always have to go through mess to get clarity?! I look at others and it doesn’t seem to be that way, although my therapist would throw me one of his looks at that (I’m not meant to compare myself to others obvs lol). I’m also feeling the fear about pushing new work out into the world but that’s part of the fun in life, innit. Bit of risk taking, playing fast and loose with my self esteem, pushing the limits of the old comfort zone. Anyways, gotta get back to it. What are you guys up to?
