Alberta’s second-largest town, located in its northwest region, has lots to offer from one of Canada’s biggest outdoor farmer’s markets to a lively arts scene and plenty of ways to enjoy the great outdoors. But what about date night? If you recently purchased one of the St. Albert homes for sale, enjoying a night out is a great way to celebrate. But even if you’ve lived here for years, you might need some new ideas to break up the monotony.
For the perfect date night in St. Albert, consider one of these options.
Catch a Show at the Arden Theatre
The Arden Theatre has a great show that’s sure to provide a great night of entertainment in an intimate setting. You might catch a play or a concert. It hosts both local and national music acts along with a bar/concession. Occasionally, big-name globally known artists are on the stage here too. In fact, Arden has hosted everyone from Celine Dion and Robert Cray to Arlo Guthrie!
Experience the ArtWalk, walking hand in hand for a perfect date night
On the first Thursday of every month between May and September, you can enjoy musicians, artists, and street performances right downtown from 6 to 8:30 pm. You could enjoy an early dinner first. But there are also food trucks available during the event that offer some fantastic bites.
Compete Against Each Other at Game OVR
Game OVR in St. Albert is the perfect place for couples who like gaming. You can have a great time competing against each other with plenty of games for two or more players. It’s a premier virtual reality arcade with full room-scale VR with more than 40 games. There are also other experiences you can enjoy on top-of-the-line equipment. There’s a Free Roam Zombie shooter experience and VR Escape Rooms too. So no matter what you do you’ll be totally immersed in the environment for an unforgettable date night.
The Bourbon Room for a sassy date night
The Bourbon Room is a locals’ favorite with a fabulous atmosphere and a dance floor. Basically, the perfect excuse to get close! It goes from being a lounge/sports bar during the week to a nightclub on weekends. There are two pianos that play tunes all night long and if you’re hungry there’s an excellent selection of appetizing options to pair with tasty drinks. Yummy!

Get a Couples’ Massage
There are plenty of spas to choose from in St. Albert and many are open at night like Heaven Essence where you can indulge in a hot stone massage, or one of many other stress-melting offerings together. Wellness Within is another great pick for disconnecting from the world and reconnecting with someone you love while enjoying a massage. You’ll each have your own therapist with the experience enjoyed in the same room.
