Love is in the air. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, many lovebirds are looking for ideas on where to go for the perfect date night. Forget the stressful date planning and move right into making more wonderful memories together at some of Jefferson City’s most romantic (and adventurous) establishments. Whether you are impressing a new darling or celebrating a longtime anniversary, these JCMO Originals are for you!  

Arris’ Bistro and Liquid Lounge - Escape from reality and indulge in some of the city’s best mixed drinks at Arris’ Bistro Liquid Lounge. With its dim lighting and quaint ambiance, the bistro sets the perfect tone for your date night. We recommend sharing one of their famous cheesecakes, but don’t spoil your dinner because we have a delightful spot in store! 

Break the Code Adventures - Next, channel your inner Sherlock Holmes at Break the Code Adventures. Choose from one of three different scenarios to begin your mission at this live-action escape room. Can you uncover the clues and break out within 60 minutes? 

Capitol City CORK and Provisions - Now that you have worked up an appetite, reward yourselves with a lovely meal at Capitol City CORK and Provisions, located in downtown Jefferson City. While everything on the menu is tempting, we recommend trying the roasted chicken or crab cakes; your taste buds will be sure to thank us! Don’t forget to treat your loved one’s sweet tooth to a delicious dessert on the menu after the main course has arrived.  

Capitol City Cinema - You don’t have to travel too far to find your next destination. Capitol City Cinema, a single-screen theater, is located next door to Capitol City CORK and Provisions. The theater offers patrons the luxury of sipping on wine or snacking on gourmet appetizers from the restaurant while viewing one of their independent films. The cinema’s intimate atmosphere is the perfect place to cuddle up next to your sweetheart while you enjoy a spectacular show. 

Please make sure to call ahead for reservations. These are just a few of Jefferson City’s establishments available for date nights. Check out for more details!
