Date Night Ideas for Parents – Win Dinner for 2 at About Eatery!

While being a parent is endlessly rewarding, every couple needs some time together when it’s just the two of them. With that in mind, here are five date night ideas in Bangkok to help you make the most of those adult-only evenings.

Dinner Cruise on the Chao Phraya River

As a parent, a great restaurant generally involves a place with a kid-friendly menu, plenty of highchairs and adequate baby changing facilities. But on a date night, you can forget about those parenting practicalities and indulge in an altogether more romantic evening. Book a dinner cruise along the Chao Phraya River with Manohra Cruises and you’ll get to enjoy a sumptuous feast of Thai specialities on-board a restored antique rice barge. Sip wine, enjoy leisurely conversations, and soak up views of Bangkok’s prominent landmarks and glittering riverside temples.

Hotel Staycation

If you’re able to arrange overnight babysitting, why not treat yourself to a staycation in the heart of the city? As well as getting to enjoy a more relaxed evening, you’ll be able to experience that most rare of parental luxuries – a long and lazy lie-in. With lots of competition between rival hotels, you’ll often find fantastic deals at some of Bangkok’s most exclusive properties. And if you’re willing to be spontaneous about where you stay, extra discounts can be found for last-minute bookings.

Couple’s Massage

One of Bangkok’s most affordable luxuries also happens to be one of the best ways for busy parents to take a well-deserved break. Luxury massage and spa retreats can be found around the city, but for an extra special experience, the Banyan Tree Hotel is hard to beat. Couples can enjoy a treatment together in a spacious suite with a choice of Asian-inspired massages, scrubs, body wraps and calming baths. After all those sleepless nights and hectic family weekends, it’s an extravagant treat that every parent can justify now and then.

Cooking Classes

Taking a cooking class together is a fun way to learn more about Thai culture while mastering the techniques that underpin the nation’s fabulous cuisine. Most courses involve visiting a local market to pick up fresh herbs, vegetables and spices before preparing a range of dishes under the expert guidance of a trained Thai chef. At Silom Thai Cooking School, you get to cook five different dishes from scratch, ranging from pad Thai and green curry to fresh spring rolls and mango with sticky rice. A take-away recipe book is also included, so you can go back home and impress the kids with your newfound culinary skills!

Rooftop Drinks at Sunset

For a truly special date night, few things match sipping sunset drinks at one of Bangkok’s iconic rooftop bars. Located on the 64th floor of Lebua State Tower, Distil offers what is undoubtedly one of the most stunning settings to enjoy a romantic evening together. This laidback bar is situated one level up from the famous Sky Bar and offers an altogether more relaxed atmosphere than its more famous downstairs neighbour. Order from the inventive cocktail menu or walk-in wine cellar before grabbing a comfy sofa as the sun sets and the twinkling lights of Bangkok slowly come to life.

Or how about a simple dinner date where you can enjoy a grown up meal sans kids? We’ve got a THB 3,000 dining voucher for About Eatery (Ocean Tower II, Sukhumvit 21 Soi 3, Asoke), a wine bar and restaurant that serves comfort food with Mediterranean influences, to give away to one lucky reader. It could be you!
