THE Best Festive Date Night Ideas Around SoMa
Love doesn’t take a holiday. You can time the whole year by its seasonal celebrations, but the heart marches to the beat of its own drum. And while this spontaneity is certainly the spice of life, special business hours, travel plans and even the weather present logistical issues that can make a holiday romance challenging.
The savvy SoMa-dweller knows, though, there are always options in The City. You can still sweep her off her feet while bells are jingling in San Francisco. Here are the best festive date night options around SoMa.
AMERICANO RESTAURANT AND BAR
If you’ve been dating a while, reservations at the waterfront Americano Restaurant & Bar make for an unforgettable evening any time of year. Yelpers agree: “I even had some of my husband and my engagement photos shot at Americano’s because it was such an important part of my life when I used to live in San Francisco!”
For a fun night on the town, the bass is still bumping at Monarch through the New Year. Dance through the dark December days and feel your sweetheart’s pulse quicken to match your own. Immortalize the evening in their custom photo booth which offers complimentary prints. You’ll always remember the last days of the year when you first held each other close.
YERBA BUENA GARDENS
No matter what your evening’s plans, a stroll through SoMa’s Yerba Buena Gardens on the way home is a great way to make the evening last a little longer. The light art installations, part of SF’s Illuminate Festival, are a romantic and festive way to cap your late December date night.
The holidays come just once a year but the heart keeps its own calendar. Just because the season is merry doesn’t mean you can’t get butterflies on a festive date night in SoMa.
