TL;DR – Escape the ordinary.
In Singapore, most couples typically enjoy watching movies, brunchin’ at cafes, or just staying home to Netflix and chill. If this repertoire is starting to get boring, here are some ideas you could explore for your dates with bae.
1. Enjoy an outdoor movie experience
If you want to try a different kinda movie night other than at the usual cold cinemas, try watching one outdoors. Take things up a notch by bringing your own picnic basket of wine, strawberries and cheese to have your own Gold Class experience under the stars.

2. Camp under the stars
Glamping has been popular in recent years and you can DIY your glamp then relax with some McDelivery’s and tranquil seaside views. Sounds like a plan?
3. Luxe picnicsvia
Picnics are getting more and more posh these days with professional picnic planners. Yes, there’s such a service to allow you to enjoy a picture-perfect picnic that’s perfect for the ‘gram.
4. Have a go at Indoor Baseball
Indoor baseball may be a great way to impress each other with your batting skills (or lack thereof), de-stress and have a good workout all at the same time.
Address: 200 Pandan Gardens #01-01, Singapore 609336
Opening Hours: Mon – Thurs: 1pm – 11pm, Fri: 1pm – 1am, Sat: 9am – 3am, Sun: 9am – 12am
5. Enjoy a cosmic bowling experience
If you have not tried cosmic bowling, it is actually pretty fun. Basically, you bowl with glow-in-the-dark balls and pins and loud dance music. Kinda like Zouk with bowling balls.
Address: Branch locations on website
Opening Hours: Mon – Thurs, Sun: 10am – 1am, Fri – Sat: 10am – 3am
6. Exercise together in a trampoline park
Unleash your inner child while burning calories. There are quite a few trampoline parks in Singapore but whatever you choose, be prepared to work up a sweat!
7. Release stress while breaking objects (just don’t break up!)
Head to The Fragment Room for some alternative couples ‘therapy’. Vent your anger over your past quarrels together and you’ll come out feeling more alive. Hopefully.

8. Kick back with cocktails in a teepee hut
Why have drinks in a normal bar when you can have them in a teepee hut 39 floors above the ground from the rooftop of Andaz Singapore.
Address: Level 39, Andaz Singapore, 5 Fraser Street, Singapore, 189354
Opening Hours: Sun – Thurs: 5pm – 12am, Fri – Sat: 5pm – 1am
9. Immerse yourself in a night of theatrical dining
Take your partner into a whimsical world of theatrical feasts immersed around stories, drama and secrets. Influenced by London’s unique dining sub-culture, ANDSOFORTH is a pop up restaurant that combines art and dining. After prior online booking, diners will be informed of their first meeting location and will then be given clues to guide them to the final venue. It’s pretty amazing!
10. Hold tight onto each other while swinging at 120km/hour
If you and bae are thrill-seekers, you can scream for your lives at AJ Hackett. Newly-opened in August last year, AJ Hackett features four adrenaline-pumping activities including a Giant Swing, a Bungy Tower, Vertical Skywalk and Skybridge. Whether you decide to go on the crazy swing that launches you 47m above the sea, jump free-fall from 47m high (equivalent to a 17-storey HDB flat), walk down a 44m vertical wall face down like Spiderman or look down 17 storeys from a Skybridge, you can be sure that it’s times like these that you will be grateful to have each other!
