Looking for romantic things to do in Denver? The Mile High City and romance go hand in hand. Whether you're on your first date or your 50th, here are some of our favorite spots for starry-eyed romantics in Denver.
Sway along to some smooth jazz at Nocturne, located in Denver’s burgeoning River North Art District. Nocturne marries the culinary, cocktail and musical arts to create one of The Mile High City's most romantic experiences. Nocturne features live jazz every night, as well as carefully curated wine, beer and cocktail offerings and a one-of-a-kind seasonal culinary program anchored by a jazz-inspired, five-course tasting menu.
The lovely two-top buttressed against the flickering glow of the fireplace isn't just one of most sought-after tables in town — it's also one of the most coveted spots for an intimate tête-à-tête. Named for the wine of the Northwestern Italian province of Piedmont, Barolo Grill is a convivial restaurant, strewn with grapes from the vine, wine bottles and farmhouse touches, all of which give it an air of rustic sophistication. Executive chef Darrel Truett, whose cooking complements the expansive wine roster, turns out shareable dishes like the fritto misto — fried prawns and calamari pooled in grilled lemon crema.
In its new Park Hill location, Bistro Vendome is a Parisian sanctuary that evokes enchantment at every turn. The soul-soothing menu is magnetic, beckoning diners with escargot gratiné, voluptuous mussels floating in an herb-and-garlic broth and duck confit with fingerling potatoes, English peas and glistening kumquat glaze. The affordable and romancing wine list — complete with bubbles — keeps the conversation flowing.
