Navigating through relationships is never simple, but one way to improve your dating life is to go on fun, memorable dates. Whether you're going on a first date or trying to spice things up with a long-term partner, Orlando is a culturally rich city that boasts many interesting dating options to help you break out of your dinner-and-a-movie rut.

Comedy Nights

Nothing can break the ice on a date or make it unforgettable like a good laugh. Enjoy an unforgettable night at a comedy club or improvisational show. Places like the Orlando Florida Improv, a comedy club and dinner theater, have regular stand-up comedy nights and improv shows. Another comedic organization, Bonkerz Comedy Club, hosts professional comedians and open-mic nights at three different bars and nightclubs in Orlando. If you are a good joke teller, impress your date by performing at an open-mic. Orlando Florida Improv 9101 International Drive, Suite 2310 Orlando, FL 32819 407-480-5233 Bonkerz Comedy Club Downtown 57 W. Pine St. Orlando, FL 32801 Bonkerz Comedy Club East Orlando 10749 E. Colonial Dr. Orlando, FL 32817 Bonkerz Comedy Club South Orlando 6000 Universal Blvd. Orlando, FL 32819 407-629-2665


If you're tired of the bar scene but still wouldn't mind grabbing a drink with your date, switch things up by doing a wine tasting or going directly to the source and sample at a brewery. For example, The Funky Monkey Wine Company in Orlando hosts wine-themed events where you can sample and learn about vintages or partake in upscale culinary events that pair food with wine. If beer is more your drink of choice, take a tour and imbibe fresh samples at local breweries such as Orlando Brewing. This organic brewer offers free tours and a tap room with more than a dozen of its handcrafted beverages ready for sampling. Funky Monkey Downtown 912 North Mills Ave. Orlando, FL 32803-3230 407-427-1447 Orlando Brewing Partners, Inc. 1301 Atlanta Ave. Orlando, FL 32806 407-872-1117

Artistic Evening

Show off your imaginative side with an artistic date. Start off the night by visiting an art gallery, such as the Orlando Museum of Art or a smaller studio. After being inspired by the work of others, head to a paint-your-own pottery studio where you can create your own work. These Orlando businesses, such as Painted by Hue, provide a wide array of ready-to-paint pottery and the supplies, so the only thing you have to worry about is designing something beautiful that gives you a lasting memento of the date. Painted by Hue 12789 Waterford Lakes Pkwy. Orlando, FL 32828 407-282-5556
