Last Updated: Dec. 6, 2021. Trying to think of an original date night idea in Regina can be hard, so we’ve done it for you! Whether you’re looking for the best dining view in the Queen City or want a new activity to experience together, we’ve got you covered for Regina date ideas. 

A Classic Date Night Idea in Regina

Going out for dinner is a tried-and-true date option, and with Regina’s local restaurant scene, there are so many options to choose from. Check out 20Ten City Eatery, which is located in the heart of downtown and has been operating since 2014. What makes 20Ten City Eatery stand out is its rooftop patio, which is open to the public from 5:30 to 10:00 p.m. on weekends. So, make a reservation, enjoy a glass of wine and an exceptional meal while drinking in front of one of the best views in the city.  

Dinner is great, but don’t forget about brunch! Weekend brunch in Regina is a great date idea, and Skye Café and Bistro never disappoints. Their goal? “To bring fresh, seasonal, exciting cuisine to the local table.” Sky Café and Bistro is located in the Saskatchewan Science Centre, and while open every day, it’s their brunch menu that draws a crowd. With options like pork back bacon Benedict to the Skye rainbow salad bowl, there’s something for everyone. And don’t forget dessert! Take a trip to Elle’s Cafe, which boasts an ice cream window with the only Dole Whip ice cream in the city.

Restaurants aren’t the only option when it comes to a food date in Regina. Charcuterie boards have become incredibly popular, and with the help of Style and Graze YQR, you can take your meal to go. Pre-order any one of their specially curated boxes and take your date on the road. Whether you’re looking for a nice stay-at-home date night or a picnic, these boxes are the perfect addition to date night.

Throwback Date Night

Dinner and a movie is always a good date option, but why not do it with a twist at Moonlight Movies Drive-In? Located in Pilot Butte 9 km outside of Regina, each weekend offers a new lineup of movies to choose from. The drive-in is complete with a concession stand for all your movie munchie needs. So why not go a little retro and drive on in for your next movie night?

Experience the Culture

The Mackenzie Art Gallery is Saskatchewan’s oldest public art gallery, and with its ever-changing exhibits, it’s a date that can be repeated while still experiencing something new every time. Wander through the artwork on display, and stop off at the gift shop on your way out. The museum is located near Wascana Park. End your date with a stroll around the lake, perhaps with a stop at Lake Taco.

Add Outdoor Adventure to Your Regina Date Ideas

With over 32 km of walking paths in Regina, it can be hard to choose one for date night. 

We recommend seeing what the trails at the Wascana Valley Nature Recreation site has to offer just outside of Regina. Pack a picnic, take a hike and breathe in the amazing view at the top of the trails.

Speaking of picnics, a brand-new business has popped up in Regina and Saskatoon that’s sure to bring a unique spin to your dates. Saskpicnique offers curated picnic set-ups anywhere you’d like! Choose from one of their four themes, decide if you want them to create the magic or if you want to set it up yourself, and your date is set. They even offer add-ons such as chocolate-dipped strawberries, charcuterie boards and fresh flowers to elevate the experience.

Figuring out what to do for date night shouldn’t be a struggle since there are so many fun things to do in Regina. For you next date night in Regina, check out one of these local options for ideas, and be ready for an amazing adventure.
