Here's our top 5 date night ideas

Whether you’re in the first flushes of love or approaching your 25th anniversary, date nights are ALWAYS important!

There’s nothing like escaping the routine – not to mention the kids – to enjoy some ‘together time’. The good news is that Westfield Chermside has heaps of options to help make your Date Night special.

1. The Classic Dinner and Movie Combo

There’s a good reason this combination has stood the test of time. It’s an unbeatable classic that’s been popular since, well, probably Charlie Chaplin days. Settle into a retro booth and enjoy a delicious, pre-dinner burger and fries at Betty’s Burgers. Then head on over to Event Cinemas to see the latest blockbuster. And if you really want to take it up a notch, treat your partner to a Gold Class cinema experience. Watch the movie in a luxurious, reclining armchair with a dessert or maybe even a glass of Champagne delivered right to your seat.

2. Be a Royal Couple at Kingpin

Now ten-pin bowling might not immediately scream Date Night, but hear me out. Kingpin has only just opened at Chermside, and trust me – this is no ordinary bowling alley. Sure it’s got 14 bowling lanes, but that’s just the start of the entertainment on offer. There’s heaps of fun stuff like Karaoke, an indoor ropes course, table tennis, arcade games and even Laser Tag. And while you’re having the time of your life together, you can also enjoy a hand-crafted cocktail like a Strawberry Sour or a Spiced Mojito. When you get hungry, choose from their menu of popular favourites, like Southern Fried Chicken Sliders, Signature Wagyu Beef Burger, a Mexican Share Plate, or Belgium Waffles.

3. Shop and Dine

Isn’t it time you treated your date to some shopping love? Well, with over 100 new stores recently opened at Westfield Chermside, there are literally thousands of gift options all under one roof. A piece of jewellery, a new outfit, lingerie, a fragrance or new shoes – it’s all here to choose from. And when they’ve been suitably impressed by your generosity, whisk them away to one of Chermside’s many restaurants for a truly memorable night.

4. Take Your Date on a Dining Tour

Why settle for just one restaurant, when you could enjoy three all in the same evening? Here’s just one idea for a Westfield Chermside Dining Tour. Kick the night off with an entre at Tapworks Bar & Grill. Enjoy a beer or a cheeky cocktail, and create your own share platter from their Small Bites menu with tasty options like Crispy Polenta Bites, Chicken Taco and Pulled Pork Croquettes. For main, let’s go a bit fancy. You can’t go past BiN 931, with its selection of sophisticated dishes, like Braised Beef Cheek over Gnocchi or Pan-fried Barramundi Fillet. And to round things off with something sweet, pop in to Gelatissimo for a delicious artisan gelato.

5. Fire things up with Teppanyaki

Ever struggle with conversation over dinner? The Kamikaze Kitchen might be just the answer. This Teppanyaki restaurant offers casual dining with a difference. The experience of watching a traditional chef prepare dishes right before your eyes on the iron griddle will surely take the pressure off coming up with scintillating chit chat. At Kamikaze, the fresh, modern Japanese cuisine will impress your date just as much as the fantastic atmosphere.
