Miami’s 10 Best Date Ideas

August 10, 2021

Miami has a lot to offer, especially when it comes to date night. Don't waste time searching for the best dates on Google, Yelp, TikTok, Instagram, etc. The Official team already did the heavy lifting. Here are the ten best places to take your partner in Miami.

Looking for a new place to take your partner on a date can be hard, especially during COVID, which has developed a second strain. Unlike many other states across the US, restaurants in Miami, “excluding bars, taverns, beer houses, nightclubs, strip clubs, and other adult entertainment establishments,” are allowed to operate at 100% capacity with restrictions and can seat up to 10 people per table. However, not all restaurants and other places where couples usually go on dates have opened their doors. So how can you find somewhere new for you and your boo? Don’t worry, Official is here to help.

Here are the ten best places to take your partner in the Magic City.

 

Dasher Crank

Located in the heart of Wynwood, Dasher Crank is the perfect place to take anyone with a sweet tooth. With over 425 scratch-made artisan flavors, it is sure to make you feel like a kid again.

Dasher and Crank are currently open for takeout and delivery, so make sure you get your scoop.
