Couples Activities in Las Vegas – Romantic Things To Do!

Las Vegas is a common destination for couples looking to spice things up, let loose, and re-connect.

While the city is known as a raucous party destination, there are a surprising number of romantic things to do in Las Vegas, both on the Strip and downtown.

I thought it would be helpful to point out some of my favorite couples activities, with options ranging from dining with a view to one-of-a-kind activities

Romantic Restaurants in Las Vegas

While plenty of restaurants could be deemed worthy of date night, there are a few that set themselves apart from the pack in our mind, many of which are because of the view offered.

Top of the World at STRAT

Man, I just love Top of the World. Not only does the restaurant provide stunning views of Las Vegas from STRAT’s SkyPod, but the view is also ever-changing as the dining room’s floor slowly rotates during your meal.

Hugo’s Cellar at 4 Queens

Located in the basement of 4 Queens downtown, Hugo’s Cellar is a bit of an outlier on this list due to the restaurant’s lack of a view.

What it lacks in scenery, Hugo’s makes up for by providing a distinct “old school Vegas” vibe and a celebrated menu that includes steak and seafood classics.

Although corny, I love that ladies are still presented with a red rose when arriving to dine.

Oscar’s at Plaza

Another downtown steakhouse with a vintage Vegas feel, Oscar’s borrows its name from former mayor and mob lawyer Oscar Goodman.

While the food is fantastic, the view of surrounding resorts Circa and Golden Gate from their new outdoor seating area or glass dome sets the mood.

Lakeside or SW Steakhouse at Wynn

There are few spots more romantic than over an upscale meal at Wynn with a view of their free Lake of Dreams show, which plays multiple times per night.

Restaurant options include Lakeside, a seafood restaurant, or SW Steakhouse. If you’re not hungry, grabbing a handmade cocktail or two at Bar Parasol will also give you a view of the free show.

Eiffel Tower Restaurant

Paris is “The city of love” and that romantic vibe carries over to the Las Vegas resort of the same name.

Located about 1/3 of the way up Paris’ replica Eiffel Tower is the Eiffel Tower Restaurant which is one of the most popular French restaurants in Las Vegas and specializes in caviar, seafood, steaks, and views of the Fountains of Bellagio.

Reservations to the Eiffel Tower Restaurant can be made here, and while a guaranteed window seat costs $40 per person, it’s worth it.

Dinner With a View of the Fountains at Bellagio

On the topic of restaurants with a fountain view, Bellagio has expertly placed a number of high-end restaurants around their iconic lagoon that is home to the Fountains of Bellagio.

A total of 8 restaurants are situated next to the fountains with a wide range of culinary influences that include French, Japanese, Italian, Chinese, and a steakhouse, you’re bound to find a romantic setting that works for you.

Dine in Bellagio’s Conservatory

Bellagio’s “Garden Table” is situated on its own in the middle of their floral conservatory which is easily one of the best free things to do in Vegas.

The specialty prie-fixe dinner menu constructed by Michael Mina includes items like ginger-scallion broiled whole fish, char-broiled shellfish, and Kona blue prawn among other selections, and costs $250 per person.

Open for both dinner and brunch on select days, you can view the full menu & snag reservations in advance, here.

Dinner With No View Whatsoever

Date night in Las Vegas gets no more unique than dinging in complete darkness. BLACKOUT Dining in the Dark offers you the opportunity to enhance your other senses by robbing you of your sense of sight. While the waitstaff leverages night vision goggles, guests will enjoy a 7-course “mystery meal” that is only revealed as you enjoy it.

Packages for BLACKOUT Dining in the Dark start at $79.

Embark on a Food Tour

There are numerous food tours in Las Vegas that visit anywhere from 3-5 restaurants over a 2-3 hour span. At each restaurant, you can expect to sample a number of different dishes.

Known for exposing guests to a variety of high-quality and unique cuisine, an excursion like this could make for the perfect date night activity.

Tours are available on the Strip, on Fremont Street, and even in the Arts District. and usually cost between $80 – $200 per person.

Take in a Dinner Show

Date nights commonly involve eating, drinking, and entertainment. Why not combine those things into one package?

There are several dinner shows in Las Vegas that allow you to do just that.

Popular options include The Mayfair Supper Club at Bellagio, Delilah at Wynn, Superfrico at Cosmopolitan Tournament of Kings at Excalibur, and Marriage Can Be Murder at The Orleans.

Romantic Things To Do In Las Vegas

Of course, everyone’s idea of what constitutes a “romantic activity in Las Vegas” is a little different. The items below are things that stick out, to me at least, as a fun couples activity.

Venetian Gondolas

The Venetian offers romantic rides in authentic gondolas both outdoors along the Strip, and indoors on canals that weave through the Grand Canal Shoppes.

Piloted by realistic Gondoliers, guests can expect to be serenaded as they navigate the canals reminiscent of Venice, Italy. The attraction, built with couples in mind, also offers wedding and proposal packages.

Helicopter Tour of the Strip

If you prefer to stay closer to Vegas, check out these Las Vegas Strip aerial tours that start at around $115 per person.

Unique helicopter tours that visit the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas are also available, although they’re a little more expensive.

I recently hopped aboard a Strip helicopter tour and was impressed with the ride and stunning views. I was kicking myself for not doing it sooner.

See a Comedy Show

My wife and I recently visited Jimmy Kimmel’s Comedy Club while on a double date and were blown away by the talent we saw for a mere $22 each.

While we visited Jimmy Kimmel’s club at LINQ, there are comedy clubs all over the Strip – Shop options for your dates on, here!

When it comes to romantic activities in Las Vegas, Dinner + a comedy show easily counts as one of my top suggestions.

Eiffel Tower Experience

Located smack dab in the middle of the Strip, the Eiffel Tower Experience Observation Deck offers stunning views from 541 feet (46 stories) up in the air.

Catching the sunset, viewing the lights of Vegas after dark, or simply watching the Fountains of Bellagio dance below are all great options to kick off or cap off a romantic night.

For some reason, I hadn’t prioritized a visit to the observation deck, but my experience was amazing. Just check out that view (below).

I can think of few better places to propose in Las Vegas if that’s on your agenda.

Cosmopolitan, Bellagio, and the Fountains of Bellagio are visible from the viewing deck.
I mean, does it get more romantic than this view?

Discover a Speakeasy

Enjoying a clandestine cocktail at a Las Vegas speakeasy with your date before or after dinner is another enjoyable endeavor.

If downtown, I recommend checking out The Laundry Room or The Underground at the Mob Museum.

If on the Strip, check out Ghost Donkey, The Ski Lodge, or The Barbershop at Cosmopolitan.

Of those three, The Ski Lodge was easily my favorite thanks to an entertaining bartender, unique decor, and a great old-fashioned.

If you make it north to Resorts World, their hidden Here Kitty Kitty Vice Den is absurdly cool as well (pictured below). Click the link of your desired hidden speakeasy for entry instructions!

Grab a Cocktail at a Scenic Bar

If a bar with a view is more your speed then give one of the following elevated cocktail lounges a shot:

  • Alle Lounge on 66 at Resorts World
  • Legacy Club at Circa
  • Foundation Room at Mandalay Bay
  • Skyfall Lounge at Delano
  • 108 Drinks at STRAT (requires observation deck fee)
  • SkyBar at Waldorf Astoria

Cuddle up at a Freezing Bar

There are 3 Minus5 Icebars along the Strip, which can be found at Mandalay Bay, LINQ, and The Venetian.

Inside, you’ll find a bar made entirely of ice – That’s right, the bar, chairs, benches, tables, walls… all ice.

While you’ll be supplied with a parka and gloves, I think you’ll find the 23-degree temperatures pushing you together. You know, body heat.

If I’m being honest, I viewed the Icebar as a “gimmick” for years, but I recently stopped in and found it to be a fun novelty on a hot day.

A fake fireplace burns and a TV "mounted" above it behind ice plays fake news.

Go for a Scenic Hike

If you’re an outdoorsy couple, check out the various outdoor activities near Las Vegas. Nearby options include Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire National Park, both of which are under 30-minutes by car from resorts on the strip.

I recently visited both Red Rock Canyon from Las Vegas as well as Valley of Fire and was blown away by the beauty of both.

Jet Ski Lake Mead

On the topic of outdoor activities, the Lake Mead Marina rents out pontoons, sport boats, and jet skis, allowing you to spend the day together on the water. You’ll even be able to tootle right up to the backside of the Hoover Dam!

For watersports enthusiasts, I can’t recommend a half or full-day jet ski rental enough. You’ll have a blast, create a lasting memory, and beat the heat.

If you prefer non-motorized recreation, the marina also has kayaks and paddleboards available to rent.

Shop The Art’s District

A free shuttle ride away from Fremont Street, the Arts District can be a couple’s paradise. There, you’ll find a ton of unique shopping options including antiques, art galleries, a man cave store, and more. There are also an impressive number of craft breweries, bars, and restaurants to get your fill.

The Arts District is also home to an abundance of cool murals.

Visit the Erotic Heritage Museum

Ranking as one of the more sexy things to do in Las Vegas, The Erotic Heritage Museum offers an array of motor-revving art and artifacts.

For the bravest among you, Naked Yoga classes are also offered weekly.

See Brilliant! Jackpot at the Neon Museum

While this didn’t originally strike me as an activity for couples in Las Vegas, I recently saw Brilliant! Jackpot at the Neon Museum and realized it was a great option.

For those unfamiliar, Brilliant! Jackpot is a show that takes place in the Neon Museum’s North Gallery after dark. Uniquely, they bring historic Las Vegas signs back to life through believable (and mesmerizing) projection technology.

The show is set to a musical soundtrack that alternates between upbeat and nostalgic, and I saw numerous couples smoochin’, holding hands, and even dancing throughout the production.

If you’re even remotely interested in Vegas of yesteryear, add this to your date night itinerary.

See a Burlesque Show

On the topic of sexy things to do in Vegas, let’s talk about burlesque shows. The popular format commonly features topless performers, but one, in particular, may appeal to both of you.

Rouge at STRAT features both male and female burlesque performers and mixes in a number of variety acts like acrobats, dancers, comics, and more.

A Couple’s Massage

Here’s the deal. I can’t speak from experience on this one because I don’t like strangers touching me, but I know others like it. If you want to get your muscles rubbed alongside your significant other, your hotel likely has a spa that can fulfill that desire.

Renew Your Vows

There is no shortage of wedding chapels in Las Vegas and they range from opulent options at high-end hotels to getting married by a dude dressed as Elvis in a drive-through.

Although I’m a firm believer that getting married to a person once is enough, it has come to my attention that some couples value the opportunity to reiterate their commitment to each other. There are few activities in Las Vegas more romantic than tying the knot all over again.

Spend Up to get a Respectable Room

Save the dingy budget rooms at questionable properties for your weekend with the boys. If you’re looking to set the mood, kick things off right by surprising your loved one with a more luxurious room option.

Impressive rooms we’ve recently enjoyed include Wynn’s Resort King, Venetian’s Luxury Suite, Mandalay Bay’s 1-Bedroom Penthouse Sky View Suite, Vdara’s Studio Parlor, and a Conrad branded room at Resorts World. When traveling as a couple, it’s worth spending a few extra bucks for a great resort experience.
