Love it or hate it, Valentine’s Day is on its way. The pressure to plan the perfect date can be crushing—and sometimes it feels easier to convince your significant other that, truly, staying in for a Netflix binge is the most romantic way to spend date night. But Toronto is one of the best cities in the world to be on a date and it’s a shame to miss out on all this city has to offer. Take a look at these top picks for perfect winter date ideas.
#1 – Put on your plaid for BATL axe throwing
What’s cozier than a lumberjack fantasy? Put on your plaid and work up a sweat with your sweetie at this newest Canadian pastime, axe throwing, at one of BATL’s four locations in the GTA. Check out their drop-in hours for a laidback date for two: Friday 5pm–8pm, Saturday 11am–2pm, and Sunday 2pm–5pm. If you end up at BATL near the Distillery make sure to drop into Soma for a Mayan hot chocolate after. It’s so delicious!
#2 – Cruise Toronto’s bars on a late-night cocktail tour
Canadians know the best way to stay warm in the winter is the consumption of copious amounts of alcohol. Stay warm on the inside with your date on Toronto Food Tour’s awesome late-night cocktail tour. You’ll have an opportunity to see the city like never before, skip the lines, and meet other night owls who live and breathe Toronto’s exciting nightlife.
#3 – Make some funky clay bowls together at Clay Design Studio
If you’re both not afraid of getting your hands dirty, try out a pottery making class in Harbord Village. At Clay Design Studio you can sign up for a pottery class and finally figure out what all the fuss about the potter’s wheel is about. You don’t have to be good at it—the point is to have fun. The studio is located at Harbord and Brunswick, so skip down the street to Harvest Kitchen for a tasty meal after the class.
