Long before Chloe came into our world we enjoyed frequent date nights. A time to reconnect and just focus on each other and strengthen our foundation. Time with my husband isn’t a luxury, it’s vital to our marriage. I think it’s so important for couples. Now we are lucky to find anytime to reconnect. This year we promised more time to ourselves, even if that meant just when the kids were asleep (and if for some miracle Chloe went down before we did ).
So last week, Eric and I, squeezed in a date night at Pike & Rose. We love dates here because it’s local and there are so many tasty restaurants to choose from and fun things to do. There are VIP theatres, bowling, cooking classes at La Sur and Music Venue. Eric and I loved dates nights at City Perch & Kitchen. That was our go to spot before having Chloe. The food is so delish and we love their cocktails. And the best part you can take your drink with you to the movie theaters next door, IPIC Theatre. Sadly, we haven’t been able to see a movie since Chloe.
We’ve heard great things about AMP by Strathmore. We haven’t had the opportunity to visit until last week. We went to see a great comedy show. The venue has live music, comedy shows, live podcasts and more! Also, on Sunday’s they host a kid dance event I hope to check that out soon with Chloe.
We were so impressed! The venue is beautiful and great space for a private event. It has a beautiful bar and they serve delicious bites and dessert. We saw two comedians and the headliner, Jason Weems . They had us laughing off our seats. Eric and I used to love going to comedy shows so it was a nice treat to be able to do that again. If you haven’t already been to AMP you definitely need to check it out calendar of events. So many to great events choose from.
We love Pike & Rose because it’s not only great for date nights but perfect for families as well. This summer they opened the Beach at Pike & Rose and Chloe loves it. It’s literally the beach with chairs and tables to eat with your little ones. There are buckets for your little one to play in the sand. There is a bar for the adults. Everyone is happy! I would love to check out their Farm. It’s located on 17,000 square feet on rooftop. They are able to provide fresh produce to the restaurants, how amazing is that?! You can sign up for a seasonal Farm Membership and receive weekly boxes. And I have to mention one of my new favorite spots to visit with Chloe is Pinstripes. We come here during lunch time to bowl and it’s perfect for kids. They also have an amazing brunch as well as a beautiful year around outdoor patio and fire pit. We also love Stella Barra Pizzeria for their delicious brick oven pizzas and as well as Summer House for their amazing brunch.I love a good brunch!
Eric and I were able to check out the new Canopy Hotel by Hilton– a fresh new concept. This hotel has a beautiful rooftop seating area, bar, and restaurant. A must see when at the Pike. I see a staycation in the near future.
Now do you see why we love Pike & Rose so much? There is so much to see and do at the new hot spot in the DC area. Whether you are looking for a fun date night or an evening with the kids, Pike & Rose will not disappoint.
Tell me where your go to date night is? I’d love to know.
