Top Places For Your First Date Around El Paso
First dates are tricky. Dinner and a movie? Too predictable. A family barbeque? Too much pressure! But fear not, first daters, there are some great places that will give you the perfect El Paso first date experience, and hopefully lead to a looooooove connection!
Top First Date Places (in no particular order!):
The Wyler Tramway
- It’s an amazing view of the city, and when you get scared, you get to hold onto your date for dear life!
Cattleman’s – The drive out there is the perfect chance to talk without having to maintain eye contact so you can loosen up before you sit down to dinner! Take a walk through the mini-zoo under the moonlight and just enjoy the quiet of the desert.
NoFish – Check out their wine and beer flights in a chic setting before or after a UTEP game while munching on something delicious from their menu. She’ll think you’re super smart for not fighting with traffic on Mesa!
The Dome Bar – On jazz nights, the scene is cool, mellow, and seriously old world sophisticated. Dazzle her by pointing out the Tiffany dome that gives the bar it’s name.
Bob O’s – Suit up for laser tag or find out who the Mario Andretti wannabe is on the go-karts! A little competition gets the juices flowing!
The Licon Dairy
- Pack a picnic basket with sandwich fixings and take a drive to the Lower Valley and check out the funkiest, funnest little zoo you’ve ever seen! You can feed the baby goats, check out the manmade lake, and then grab some fresh, delicious azadero cheese. Head over the gazebo in front of the mission in San Elizario and make deli sammiches with the best cheese EVER!
Sunday Morning Walking On Scenic Drive - Now that the weather is nice, the City closes down Scenic Drive on Sunday mornings so people can walk, run, or bike without having to worry about ending up on the evening news! After you’ve worked up a sweat head over to…..
Ruli’s International Kitchen – Sit out on the patio and look across Mesa at the Don Haskins Center, and raise a glass to the late, great, Coach Don Haskins!
The Plaza Classic Film Festival – Film noir, rom-coms, silents, the Plaza plays host to them all! Check out the movie listings for your first date, then keep them handy for your second, third, and fourth!
El Paso Champagne Fest – two days of music, food, wine, beer, and champagne tasting, all in a hip, downtown setting!
