Planning a first date can be stressful, you want something that is fun but not too romantic. You want to make a good first impression that secures that second date! Luckily, Phoenix is filled with fun and interesting places to go out for a night (or day) on the town. Here are some of the best first date spots in Phoenix.

Camelback Mountain (and Chop Shop)

Camelback Mountain in the Arcadia area of Phoenix provides a good workout and stellar view of the city. Hiking gets the blood flowing and conversation comes natural when you are scaling a mountain! Follow the hike up with a trip to Chop Shop in Old Town Scottsdale for some fresh press juice and their delicious protein bowls!


Usually we’d say catching a movie for a first date is not the best idea, sitting in silence for 2.5 hours watching a movie is pretty standard, and boring. FilmBar makes the event a bit more interesting with a fully stocked bar and a collection of independent, art-house, and just plain weird playing on it’s silver screen. Drop by for some tasty spirits and unique film-viewing experience.

Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art

The Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art is filled with modern and contemporary art. With new exhibits coming in and out nearly every month. The art is your conversation starter and you can grab a drink in Old Town post-date. For the frugal, the SCoMA is free on Thursdays.

The Desert Botanical Garden

It’s a like a zoo but with plants! The Desert Botanical Garden is an excellent place for a first date. With rotating features like the Chihuly exhibit and the butterfly garden the Desert Botanical has much to offer especially if your date is a nature lover!

Catch a Comedy Show

The valley is filled with comedy clubs. For stand-up comedy checkout Stand-Up Live in Downtown Phoenix and the Improv in Tempe for national headliners. If Whose Line is it Anyway? is more your speed and enjoy improv-comedy, The Torch Theater is Downtown Phoenix provides laughs that are always made up on the spot.
