Fun Date Night Ideas in Kitsap County

When it comes to a night out, Kitsap County has plenty of options. Whether you’re looking for a romantic stroll, a fun excursion, or a delicious meal, there are many ways to create a memorable evening with that special someone. Here are some interesting ideas to get you started.

Explore Port Gamble Historic District

For a date night that begins in the afternoon and then turns into a fun evening, consider charming, historic Port Gamble. It’s a sweet place to spend an afternoon exploring quaint shops with unique treasures. Then hit one of the trails for a hike or bike ride. Port Gamble Heritage Forest offers 30+ miles of trails. If the weather is decent, you could rent kayaks from Olympic Outdoor Center. Then grab a drink at House 11 Taproom & Bottle Shop. They offer many great beers on tap as well as an eclectic mix of wines. If you’re hungry, they offer delicious small bites.

For a larger meal, you could stroll over to Butcher & Baker Provisions. A locally sourced farmhouse restaurant, butcher shop, and bakery, this place is often busy with locals and tourists stopping in before or after hitting the Port Gamble trails. So, consider ordering online to ensure it’s ready when you arrive.

A Date Night in Bremerton For Foodies & Movie Lovers

Take dinner and a movie to the next level by treating your taste buds to a meal at Restaurant Lola in Bremerton. This new, cozy, 20-seat restaurant has incredible food and offers the perfect romantic evening for foodies. They have a rotating seasonal menu prepared by renowned chef John Hall who has worked with Michelin-starred chefs. Restaurant Lola is already creating quite the buzz, and it’s well deserved. Restaurant Lola is currently open Thursday – Sunday for lunch and dinner. We highly recommend making a reservation in advance by sending the restaurant a direct message on Instagram. Alternatively, you can place an online order and pick up your decadent meal.

After dinner, head to the Historic Roxy Theatre to watch a show. First opened in 1941, the Roxy Theatre plays movies, hosts live music, and much more. Frank Sinatra, Bing Crosby, and local favorite MXPX frontman Mike Herrera have all graced the Roxy’s stage.

Sweet Sips on Bainbridge Island

Looking for a romantic date night that involves vino? Consider heading to Bainbridge Island for a wine-tasting adventure! Bainbridge Island is home to several wineries that offer tastings and tours, making it the perfect spot for wine lovers. Sample different varietals while learning about the winemaking process, and perhaps even pick up a bottle or two to take home as a memento of your special night. Additionally, many of Bainbridge’s wineries have exciting events throughout the year, from live music to game nights, “corks & canvas” painting events, to food pop-ups.
