Rob and I enjoyed our first date night this past Saturday since January! It’s amazing how fast the time goes and you realize how long it has been since going out and enjoying a night out without baby in tow. We are fortunate to have met some fabulous friends on our street that were nice enough to come and watch Mikayla while we enjoyed a night out (thanks Matt & Vanessa!) We waited until Mikayla was down for the night (around 7:30).
Our friend recommended a great bar to try for drinks called the Cocktail Club downtown. It was A W E S O M E!! A hidden gem downtown that I would have never found if it wasn’t for the recommendation from our friend. It has old Charleston charm with modern touches. Located on the second floor, they have a main bar area, separate lounge areas and even an outdoor patio. It has great ambiance and a good selection of beverages.
What We Drank:
C: I had a fantastic Cosmopolitan. I have had my fair share of bad cosmos but this was perfect.
R: Antipasto Martini. Said it was “eh, ok”….a little too sweet for him.
NEXT UP…DINNER at Charleston’s finest steakhouse, Halls Chop House!
This place is amazing! We have been here once before and I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting Charleston. The wait staff is very friendly and the owner and his son always greet you at the door and thank you for coming! Southern Hospitality at its finest!
What We Ate:
C: Glass of Riesling, caesar salad, 8oz. filet with béarnaise sauce, mashed potatoes
R: Glass of Pinot Noir, caesar salad, prime rib, mashed potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise sauce
We had a great time and it was nice to finally get out and enjoy each other! I would like to say that we will have a date night at least once a month but that might include M in tow. Maybe we can aim for a date night without M every other month. We are traveling home to visit family at the end of May and we will DEFINITELY be having LOTS of date nights while we are there! 🙂
What does your favorite date night out consist of??
