Some people are big city folk, others enjoy the open skies and you can find both sides of life when living in Pensacola. We all know how important time alone with your significant other is, but sometimes in this
Date Night Pensacola
The Coffee Happy Hour Date
Head to downtown Pensacola to The Ruby Slipper for a delicious brunch. The Ruby Slipper’s original location is in New Orleans, and they’ve expanded to include a few more, including the Pensacola location. They have a weekday happy hour, in the mornings, great mimosas and the best Irish Coffee I’ve had in years. They don’t take reservations, so make sure you have enough time to enjoy your

If you can swing a weekend away, or even just one overnight, check out Cold Water Gardens in nearby Milton, Florida. This beautiful and serene location offers
The Educational but Fun Date
Food is a great background for date night, but sometimes you want more than just a meal out. Pensacola Cooks Kitchen, located near the front gate of NAS Pensacola, offers date night cooking classes. You can sign up for one event or the “From Scratch” Baking Course for adults, which is a series of four classes. Another option is So Gourmet, located on Palafox in downtown. They offer some great wine pairings with appetizers meals and several “hands-on” classes that would really put some fun
The Enjoy the Florida Sunset Date
The beaches in Pensacola are absolutely stunning, especially with the glow of the sunset. There are several great places to enjoy dinner and then a walk on the beach, or pack your own food for a picnic. Head on down to Red Fish Blue Fish on Pensacola Beach for a casual, beachfront dining experience. Built in the southern style, with wood planks from the old Coca-Cola factory in town, the idea of sourcing local can be found in their décor and the food. Eat outside on the patio, sit with your toes in the sand or eat inside if you desire. The atmosphere is relaxing and you’ll not want to leave!
I’m a huge fan of making the most of each and every place you live. Get out there and #explorepcola with us!
