5 Fun First Date Ideas in Atlanta

Looking for unique and fun first date ideas in Atlanta, Georgia? We've got five that you'll love!

Who said first dates have to be dull and awkward?

With so much to do in Atlanta, a typical dinner at a restaurant isn’t the only first date option out there! Show your date how fun you are by taking him or her to any of these unique places that are the perfect first date! Not only will you have a great time, but you’ll also get an idea of whether or not your date is outgoing and willing to get out of their comfort zone.

We’ve put together our favorite first date ideas in Atlanta so you can get straight to plotting a fun time out!

Here are 5 Fun First Date Ideas in Atlanta:


Escape a Room With Your Date

You’ll both get locked in a room for one hour. I know, if that’s the first date, it might not be the best idea, but you’ll be to busy having to figure out how to get out of there by following clues that are thrown at you.

I mean, that’s kind of the best way to figure out how well you and your date would work together in times of stress, so it’s like killing two birds with one stone!

Skyline Park

What’s better than a rooftop with amazing views of Atlanta, you ask?

A mini amusement park on a rooftop!

With mini golf, a huge slide, and many games to keep you both occupied (plus, there’s a bar.), this is one of the most fun date night ideas in Atlanta! Head to Ponce City Market! Trust us, you’ll thank us for this one later.


Get old-school at a drive-in cinema

We love the idea of doing something first date-y but with a fun twist to it!

If either you or your date has a car, you can travel back in time to Starlight, a vintage drive-in cinema! They mostly show newly-released movies, but in an old-school setting and it’s so much fun!

Visit a Rooftop Bar

Atlanta has so many rooftop bars that it’s ridiculous! From mini amusement parks high up above to infinity pools overlooking Atlanta’s skyline over at Wetbar and restaurants like Tuk Tuk Thai Loft or O-Ku Sushi offering the some of the best Asian cuisines has to offer.

I mean, seriously, why settle for a boring, ground-level dinner when you can have one at a rooftop?

Check Fox Theater Out

Take your date to Fox Theater for an amazing show at one of Atlanta’s historic buildings. This theater was built over a hundred years ago and it’s still going strong!

After watching the show, go on a 60-minute tour of the theatre where you’ll get to learn the ins and outs of this iconic place!



Since it’s baseball season and The Battery is new make sure to try it out on your next date! Watch a Braves game, walk around and shop, or head to one of the many bars like Punch Bowl Social. It’ll make for a fun-filled date for sure!
