8 Not-so-typical Dating Locations in Ortigas

Oh, where to take your special someone and make a lasting impression? ‘Dinner and a movie’ is definitely off the list (including watching a romantic movie at home during this rainy season). It’s time to think beyond the cliché romantic date ideas. Of course there’s a greater risk, but think about the greater reward: the more you’re able to give that wow effect on a date, the stronger your bond will be.

Fortunately, aside from being well-known as a booming business district, Ortigas has a number of dating places where you can take your significant other to make things very interesting. This is great news especially for those living in Ortigas because it will save them precious time.

Here’s 8 not-so-typical date locations in Ortigas for your romantic pleasure:

1. Yoga+

It’s all about connecting, right? And what better way than take yoga sessions together. Partner poses are not only fun but also a great way to connect with your special someone. You’ll be forced to communicate effectively (to let each other know how the adjustments feel) and to act with sensitivity (to ensure that the amount of force you’re using is appropriate). Those skills will come in handy in the future (wink).

2. Elorde Boxing Gym

Nowadays, boxing is also becoming popular with women because of the benefit it provides in shaping up the body and giving confidence. So why not join the bandwagon and let her have a crack at it. You’ll both enjoy sweating it out and hitting the mitts and bags. Besides, boxing is totally cool and empowering, you’ll see her redefine what it means to “hit like a girl.”

3. Renaissance Art Gallery

You can stroll hand in hand and admire art together. You’ll learn a lot about the person you’re standing next to if you go and check out art together. Plus it gives you something so much more stimulating to talk about than the last episode of a teleserye.

4. SM Megamall Skating Rink

Ice skating is one of those dates that looks so romantic you have to try it at least once. Don’t worry about falling, because that will be good reason for him to catch you and get the two of you closer.

5. Gandiva Archery and Cafe

Harness your archery skills while having fun. Be there as she shoots her first arrow (don’t laugh if she misses the mark entirely) and then get to talk about it later as you eat a healthy but yummy meal at their cafe.

6. VUs Sky Bar and Lounge – Marco Polo Hotel

Take her to a new high, a sky-high experience that is. This luxurious hotel offers a first-of-its kind sky bar and lounge located on the 45th floor that features cutting-edge design, a high-end sound system, relaxing vibe and savory Mediterranean tapas served indoors or al fresco style.

7. MusicMatch KTV

Who doesn’t love to sing?! Go muster up the courage to sing in front of each other as you leave your inhibitions behind in closed quarters. And if it goes well, you might just discover a brand-new hobby or laugh at how the both of you sound. You can even bring along your friends to ease the awkwardness.

8. BlueWater Day Spa in Ortigas

Having a massage together is a wonderfully relaxing, de-stressing experience. Aside from reducing stress and muscle tension, it encourages two people to bond closer together. Couples who strive to practice a healthy lifestyle can enjoy these benefits and more together.

Location is crucial to achieve the perfect date but sometimes it’s good to throw yourselves into an unpredictable situation and see what happens. That’s how you make the best memories.
