Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Even if you don’t have a partner to share it with, Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate those you love. So, we hope you try one of these fun activities with a friend, family member, or spouse this year.
At Reichert Mortgage Team, we think the best way to connect with your community is to go to events, try new things, and get out of your comfort zone, which is why we’ve put together this list of things to do for Valentine’s Day in Colorado Springs. Even if you opt for a quiet night in, we hope Colorado Springs starts to feel like home this February.
Best Date Restaurants in Colorado Springs
Going out for a fancy dinner is a Valentine’s Day classic, and for good reason. Nothing says romance like getting dressed up and sharing a nice meal.
Here are a few of our favorite locally-owned restaurants in Colorado Springs that are perfect for date night. Keep in mind that you’ll want to make a reservation to ensure your night doesn’t take an unexpected turn.
This restaurant is a downtown classic, with unique small plates and high-quality cocktails. With Wonderland-themed decor, this city-morgue-turned-restaurant will provide an unforgettable date night experience.
The Carter Payne is a church from the 1800s that is now home to a cocktail bar, wine bar, brewery, and farm-to-table cuisine. Enjoy craft food and drinks in a beautiful setting.
Our last downtown restaurant is a wine and cheese bar that won a Diner’s Choice award in 2022. This is a great option for classic Valentine’s Day fare.
As a Falcon-based mortgage lender, we wanted to include a few options on the east side of Colorado Springs. Ban Sushi is a high-quality sushi restaurant, located off of Stapleton for an elevated dining experience close to home.
Black Forest Bistro is another great option for our Falcon neighbors. The bistro has won several awards, including Best of the Springs in 2021. They are only open Thursday-Saturday, however, so plan your Valentine’s Day date carefully.
