Best Date Night Ideas In Lagos

Read more to discover the best date night ideas in Lagos!

A date night is a great chance to spend some quality time with your partner, away from everyday activity. When considering plans for a date, it is important to take your partner’s interests and preferences into account. Is he/she a foodie that enjoys trying out new restaurants? Or would they prefer to watch movies at the cinema? 

Remember that the ideal setting for a date night doesn’t have to be expensive or ‘perfect’; rather it should be wherever you both can feel comfortable, communicate easily and spend quality time together.

This article will look at some of the best activities to engage your significant other on a date that will make the evening remarkable for both of you.  


Beach Dates 


Beach dates at night are especially romantic, with a light, picnic- style dinner, the perfect ocean view, cool sand under your feet and twinkling stars above you. This is an ideal date for a good first impression with someone you really care about and want to get to know better. At Landmark Beach, Good Beach or Oniru Beach, you can indulge in various activities, including volleyball, outdoor table games, boat cruises, paintballing and long walks along the shore.

Gaming Spots

If you are looking for a more upbeat and fun activity, we’d suggest a gaming centre. You and your partner can choose a game that you both like – you could compete against each other or team up and play against another couple. To make it interesting, let the losing team purchase  drinks or snacks for the winning team after a series of games.

Experience gaming in Victoria Island at the VR Place, with an array of exciting activities. The VR Place creates immersive virtual reality experiences, combining technology and art in VR platforms. It cuts across different age groups giving users maximum perception in a way that defies existence. With over 100 games and a good restaurant, Rufus & Bee is another great date night spot, just minutes away from several beaches in Oniru. 

Dining Out

Have an elegant and quiet evening in each other’s company at any of the excellent restaurants in Lagos. Jinja is an Asian-themed restaurant that offers an exquisitely decorated dining room, which is considered a top instagrammable spot in Lagos. At  Jinja Restaurant, you not only get the aesthetics, you also get great food and excellent service. They offer a sophisticated dining experience and an Asian-inspired menu that has a vast variety of food options combining what you might get in a Chinese restaurant, Thai restaurant or Japanese restaurant anywhere in Lagos. 

Park Hangouts 

Park hangouts are popular with couples who enjoy spending time outside, engaging with others in the environment and participating in leisure activities. These include: night picnics, playing games, taking a walk, bike riding, attending concerts, or watching outdoor, big-screen movies.

Muri Okunola Park in Victoria Island is one of the popular parks in Lagos. It has lovely sculptures, lush grass, flowers and palms, and is suitable for hosting parties, picnics and creating content. A date in the park can be a lot of fun with the right company. Take advantage of the great outdoors for a vibrant night out. 

Late Night Movies 

One of the pros of late-night movie dates is the lower number of people usually in the screening rooms. This way, you get to experience a more private and intimate time with your partner. A movie can be an effective way to date someone new, because the movie can act as a topic for conversation afterward. Without the stress of having to think of something to say or do, it is also a relaxing and low-stress way to spend time with someone you already know. These dates may be a fun and interesting way to discover new movies and genres that you would not have otherwise watched. 

EbonyLife Cinemas is a superb destination to experience luxury and unwind with thrilling blockbuster movies in Lagos. They have a wide variety of food and drinks, such as chocolate, salted and sweet popcorn flavours; asun and chicken pies; a Chops Box, Chicken Wrap, yoghurt parfait, carrot cake, cocktails, wine, beer, and so much more. Also, you can order four different pizza flavours from Jinja Garden, and have it delivered to your seat in 20 minutes.

All screening rooms come with wide, reclining armchairs and adjustable leg rests. For group dates, there is a VIP private cinema for 6-10 couples that offers: a movie and screening time of your choosing,  unlimited popcorn and drinks throughout the movie, blankets, a 2-course meal, cocktails or mocktails. 

Dancing Spots 

Club dates are often an exciting way to let go, let some steam off, and have a good time. 

However, it’s not the best recommendation if  you and your partner are still getting to know each other. If you and your date both enjoy dancing and the nightlife, club dates can be a fun and exciting way to spend some time together. It can be one of the best ways to relax and have fun with others, while exposing you to a different social environment than you might be accustomed to. 

Quilox Nightclub & Bar, located in Victoria Island, is one of Nigeria’s elite spots, with its impeccable design, stunning decor and lighting, and  hospitality.

Dinner with a View

If you and your date are into exploring traditional cuisine at picturesque locations, a rooftop experience might be the perfect place to discover authentic local flavours.

Turaka rooftop restaurant offers a wide variety of local and international dishes, carefully crafted signature cocktails, weekly live music, and an amazing view of the Atlantic Ocean and Lagos skyline. The dreamy views are certain to leave you and your date with a feeling that all’s right with the world, and it’s the ideal romantic setting for getting lost in each other’s company.

Enjoy beautiful views that will elevate your date. If you arrive by 6:00 pm, you can sip on refreshing cocktails, and watch the changing colours of the sky as the sun goes down and the city lights begin to sparkle – all from the comfort of your balcony seat.
