Whether you’re looking for a romantic night out with your significant other this Valentine’s Day, or you're avoiding the holiday entirely and plan on staying cozy on the couch, we’ve got you covered!

We’ve put together our favorite romantic and fun things to do in Columbia, MO with your significant other, best friend, or family. 

Grab a Drink

Want to wine and dine your sweetheart? Check out Top Ten Wines in downtown Columbia, Les Bourgeois in Rocheport, or Canterbury Hill in Holts Summit. 

If a craft cocktail (or 2!) is more your style, try out Barred Owl, Flyover, Dogmaster Distillery, or The Roof.

Beer lover? Enjoy a local brew at Broadway Brewery, or Flat Branch Pub & Brewing.

Try a New Restaurant

What better time than Valentine's Day for you and your significant other (or family!) to go outside your comfort zone and try out a new restaurant? 

Some of our favorite date night dining picks include:

CC's City Broiler or Chris McD's for steak and seafood

Sycamore or Cherry Street Cellar for fine dining

Room 38, Barred Owl, or Flyover for small plates

Murry's, Glenn's Cafe, 44 Stone Public House, or Sophia's for a relaxed atmosphere

Jina Yoo's, Sake, or Le Bao for upscale Asian fare

Catch a Show

For music lovers, you'll find local artists at The Blue Note and Rose Music Hall. For dinner and a show, head to Murry's for great food and live Jazz. Film fans will love a local favorite, RagTag Cinema.

Get Crafty

Columbia is filled with a vibrant mix of everything art, from painting to pasta! Grab some friends and head to Paint the Town or Canvas on Broadway. If it's pottery you like, The Mud Room is your place! Looking for a DIY project?  Try a Valentine's Day couples woodworking class hosted by Sawdust Studios. Maybe edible art is your thing- try a pasta-making class at Pasta La Fata!

Be sure to hit the North Village Arts District downtown and check out Columbia Art League, Orr Street Studios, or Sager Reeves Gallery for a more laid-back browsing experience.

Feeling Adventurous?

Not into the romantic, mushy Valentine's date? How about axe throwing? You and your loved one are sure to have a fun time at The Axe House! Or, give one of the local escape rooms a try at Breakout Como or MindBreak Escape Rooms. If you're looking for something a little more low-key but still unique, a picnic might be a perfect choice! Cozy up in a Valentine's-themed heated bubble tent from CoMo Picnics at Cosmo Bethel Park. 

Finding the love of your life isn't always sweet & easy.

But we've made finding a home you love in Columbia, MO a piece of cake!
