From intimate restaurants to exciting shopping to relaxing spa treatments for couples, Toronto has a wealth of options for the perfect romantic weekend. Here are some of the best date ideas for your special weekend in Toronto.
The Four Seasons
Toronto’s Four Seasons Hotel in Yorkville is the ideal base for a weekend of romance in the city, in the heart of Toronto’s chicest neighbourhood. The hotel’s elegant architecture and decor inspired by natural forms and materials make it the perfect place to rest and unwind with your special someone. Order breakfast in bed so the two of you can spend a long, lazy morning together, absorbing the sunny views of downtown Toronto. Be sure to check into the spa (yes, both of you) for a relaxing couple’s massage.
Crème de la Crème
Head out for one of the most romantic and best date ideas and the kind of shopping both of you will love at Crème de la Crème for a new addition to your lingerie collection. The store specializes in fine silks and high-quality cotton, and carries renowned international names like Aubade and Chantelle. They also offer personalized fittings by very experienced staff so you can get the tailored service you deserve on your special weekend.
Nothing says “I love you” more resolutely than booking a table at Toca, an Italian fine-dining restaurant at Toronto’s Ritz-Carlton, for dinner. The refined upscale elegance of Toca is reflected in both the decor and the service. Choose from the very extensive wine list or let the head sommelier guide your wine choices for the night. You’ll absolutely want to start with the foie gras, but it’s hard to go wrong with anything on the menu here. Ask to be given a tour of the restaurant’s most unique feature: a temperature-controlled cheese cave where a carefully curated cheese collection is housed and aged to perfection.
Get your romantic feet in gear with a salsa lesson at Lula Lounge. Perfect for beginners or seasoned dance pros, Lula has a rotating schedule of exciting music and dance events interspersed with classes. Their Free Friday Jazz night is extremely popular. The best way to go is to book a table for dinner, start off with a cocktail and then settle in for an evening that’s sure to get you into the swing of things. Prepare to be wooed by a jazz ensemble and live salsa orchestra before taking to the floor yourself for a one-hour lesson.
Toronto is an easy city to navigate by public transport, but walking is a great way to soak up the atmosphere and spend some quality one-on-one time with your special someone too. The city’s best date ideas are exceptional but unobtrusive, providing the perfect backdrop to let you do things the way you want to together on your special weekend in Toronto.
