Portland Date Night Ideas

Posted on:

Valentine’s Day may be over, but that doesn’t mean the romance can’t continue! Portland has no shortage of fun activities and unique hot spots, restaurants and breweries to enjoy on your next date night. Whether you’re planning for your 20th anniversary or a nerve-racking first date, here are some sure-to-please date night (or day) ideas.

  1. Cheer on the Trail Blazers. If you’re visiting Portland during the NBA season (October-April), make a visit to Rip City! Start the evening with a pregame beer at Altabira City Tavern then head to the Moda Center (right across the street from our Portland hotel!) for a night of fun and free throws.
  2. Head Outside. If you and your special someone are up for adventure, grab your water bottles and take the scenic drive out to the Columbia River Gorge. Just miles from Portland, you can explore dozens of beautiful natural wonders including trails and waterfalls.
  3. Get Cultured. Every Friday evening, the Portland Art Museum offers a night of exciting, interactive events, including an Art Pub, photo booth, museum tours and rotating pop-up programs and performances. And good news: Admission is only $5 after 5pm so you can indulge dinner or dessert (or both!) after your visit.
  4. Sip the Night Away. Portland is a city known for its many breweries but also boasts plenty of distilleries and wine tasting rooms for you and your date to explore. Try a flight at one of the city’s urban wineries, sip whiskey with your Portland Distillery Passport purchase or take a beer tour to sample the best of Portland’s brews.

A stay at our Portland luxury hotel means you’ll be close to the best destinations, restaurants and attractions Portland has to offer. Whether you’re here for business, pleasure or looking for an event space in Portland, the team at Hotel Eastlund looks forward to helping you discover this beautiful city!
