Stay Close to Home with Your Valentine

Stay Close to Home with Your Valentine

Some of the best ideas for Valentine’s Day are right here in the area. Here is a list of local businesses bringing some unique ideas so that you and your love (or your whole family) may enjoy a date night while staying close to home.

Genti’s Restaurant
3700 FM 2181 Hickory Creek

This is a long-standing family restaurant that is consistently good. They have great specials plus if you’re looking to take all of your valentines (whole family) you can bring them to Genti’s.

Tierney’s Cafe & Tavern
208 E. Main St., Lewisville

The restaurant is an old, haunted farmhouse, dating back to 1885. It was built by Dr. J.W. Kennedy, rumored to have been blindfolded, kidnapped and taken to Bonnie and Clyde’s hideout on Lake Dallas to serve as their physician. The food is great comfort food and the prices are just right.

Escape Room HQ
1565 W. Main St. #495, Lewisville

And now for something completely different…
If you’re looking for an out of the ordinary Valentine date idea, this is it. At Escape Room HQ, you and your “Bond girl” will race against the clock to solve all of the clues and not only save the day, but escape the room. For the entire month of February, sign up at and use promo code SWEETHEART. This will get you two hour-long escape adventure tickets for $50.
All of their rooms were designed by a former Army Ranger intelligence officer turned undercover police officer so these rooms are based on real-life mysteries, offering you and your Valentine an unforgettable night. Voted the BEST PLACE TO MEET PEOPLE in Denton County 2016 it’s a great way to know your sweetheart, too. 

Barley and Board
100 W. Oak St., Denton

This is first class food and drink with a really terrific atmosphere. Located in the Denton Square you can get anything from a cheeseboard to Quail with a huge variety of beers and cocktails from the bar. You really need to have reservations…and not just for Valentine’s Day.

Hannah’s off the Square
1111 W. Mulberry St., Denton

It calls itself casual, fine dining but it truly is a romantic, beautiful restaurant with extraordinary food. Call in advance for Valentine’s Day reservations. Way in advance…

Cloud 9 Spa and Salon
1651 Justin Rd, Flower Mound

His and hers pedicures are always a nice way to start a date night or how about his and hers massages (you won’t be in the same room, but you’ll be relaxing at the same time)? There are also facials and other amenities and the atmosphere is very comfortable for men so there’s no chance he will feel uneasy. It’s a wonderful way to relax together.

Bistecca Steak House
2300 Highland Village Rd, Lewisville

This is not just the perfect place for a romantic dinner, it’s a great place to get married or hold an outside party with its romantic courtyard and beautiful outside lights. It’s also a great place to take a cooking class if that would be a better Valentine’s Day present (but that’s not offered on Valentine’s Day). For a Valentine’s Day date, however, it’s a elegant, romantic dinner location with simply magnificent food.

Coyote Drive In
1901 Midway, Lewisville

Take a drive down nostalgia lane and take your sweetie to a drive-in movie. Bring your own snacks and a blanket to cuddle up in the back. It may not be as comfortable as a movie at home, but there’s no chance of the kids interrupting. Just don’t stash in any of your friends in the trunk this time around.

Cinnamon Creek Ranch
13794 Old Denton Rd, Roanoke

Here’s a new twist to Valentine’s Day: Couples by the Creek which is date night at Cinnamon Creek Ranch (and it’s not just Valentine’s Day, they have it every month). Have a great time with archery including archery tag and archery hover ball. The food is spectacular, prepared by owner Joe Musacchio and it’s BYOB. At $100 per couple for food and archery. It’s a bit out of the way, but worth the drive.

Studio Movie Grill
1600 S Stemmons Frwy., Lewisville

This really is a great date night with dinner and movie. The wait staff is at your disposal with full bar, wine, beer, and good food. Have dinner, drinks, watch a movie and leave the kids with the sitter.
