    We all love a dash of fun in our romantic adventures and if like us, you're tired of candle-lit restaurant dates as well (okay okay, a little exaggeration there), here are 10 offbeat date ideas that'll make your day an affair to remember. 

    P.S., all you single folks, take your best buds out for a date, maybe?

    Ride Around The Town

    So, you can take each other for a ride. Forgive us, we had to go for it. The perfect way to soak in the morning sun, we recommend the Old Delhi route; you’ll be part of a larger group. It starts at the crack of dawn though, so if you’re not a morning person, this might not be a good fit. Alternatively, cycling around Lodhi Gardens amongst the beautiful wall murals will make for an extremely cool date, trust us. 

    Bowling & Video Games At Smaaash

    Smaaash

    DLF Phase - 2, Gurgaon

    This one got the most votes at the LBB HQ. A snazzy gaming, dining, and party place, you can surprise your date here; play a game of air hockey, compete in those basketball booths, and if you’re really looking to play, test your game in the bowling alleys. 

    Enjoy Art Exhibits At NGMA

    For the more culturally inclined, and less adventurous, Delhi has a host of excellent galleries and exhibits that you can check out. The National Gallery of Modern Art is a treasure trove of modern art and an excellent starting point for your date.

    Heritage Walks With A Hint Of Historic Talks

    Pick a route, pick a company, and sign up for a curated walking tour. The heritage walks in Mehrauli Archeological Parks, Hauz Khas, Lodi Garden, and Jama Masjid are great bets to fall in love with your date and your city, all over again. 

    Ice-cream (Or Cotton Candy) At India Gate

    India Gate

    India Gate, Delhi
    If you haven't done this yet, then you're really missing out on one of the nicest date spots Delhi has to offer. Pick up your favourite ice-creams, cotton candies and walk down the long road to India Gate while talking about everything under the moon. 

    Take Your Date Out On A Picnic

    Pick up your baskets and mats, and head out to your favourite picnic spot in Delhi. Your date can't get more chiller than this. You can find some of the best picnic spots in the city, here.

    P.S., here's your list of picnic bag essentials while you're at it. 

    Open Air Cinema At Sunset Cinema Club

    Poolside, DDLJ, and bae. Open Air Cinema's film screenings will make your date an out and out romantic experience. Book your tickets now!

    Rock Climbing Cuz Why Not

    BoulderBox

    Vasant Kunj, Delhi

    One of the best bonding exercises out there, rock climbing is a super fun date idea for folks in Delhi. It'll test your fitness and your trust in each other. We recommend booking a slot at Boulder Box or Delhi Rock for a super fun time.

    Street Food Hopping

    If you're the couple that lives and dies for food, then it's always a good idea to strike off some places from that street food bucket list of yours. Golgappas for appetizers, chhole bhature for mains, and jalebi for dessert - IT DOESN'T GET BETTER.

    Catch A Play At Mandi House

    With Shri Ram Centre, Kamani Auditorium, LTG Auditorium, and NSD in close proximity, Mandi House is always buzzing with activity and is one of our favourite spots for a date. Catch a play, grab delicious food at Triveni Terrace Cafe, and make it a date worth remembering.

    Pro-Tip

    If you still wish to go old school then head over to these outdoor restaurants in Delhi and before you do get ready for your date by shopping online here. Casual printed shirts to breezy dresses to statement jewellery, find 'em all on Shop On LBB.

    Disclaimer: While all the places mentioned above are following all safety protocols, it's crucial that we take our own precautions by practising social distancing and wearing masks at all times while heading out.
