The Best Outdoor Date Ideas in the South Loop

They said “yes.” And now you’ve got a date! But where are you gonna go? Where are some of the best places to fan the flames of a potential love? Well, think of us here at the 101 as your wingman – and we’ve come up with some of the Best Outdoor Date Ideas in the South Loop!

Launching our blog on the best outdoor date ideas in the South Loop is the Chicago Firehouse. Located at 1401 S. Michigan Ave, the old, renovated Firehouse is now a quaint, beautiful steakhouse with outdoor seating in a patio that once served as the horse stables (how do you think they got to the fires before the automobile?). I’m happy to say they’ve cleaned up the stables since then and now serve up amazing food and wine. You and your date will love it.

Next up on our blog on the best outdoor date ideas in the South Loop is going for a workout together. Held at the Navy Pier, the best thing about sweating together is that it’s free! Yup, just head over to the Jam Session at Wave Wall Performance Platform by 6pm and have a whale of a time! Music on hand is a mixture of hip hop, old school R&B, and pop. There’s actually an entire series of free yoga and group fitness classes at Navy Pier under the Rush Hour Fitness umbrella title. Work out with your date, clean up, then head out for a well-earned dinner!

Finishing up our blog on the best outdoor date ideas in the South Loop is the Summer Concert at Millennium Park on August 14th. This one night only event focuses on Broadway and features performances from Aladdin, The Color Purple, Les Miserables, Waitress, Wicked and many more. If love doesn’t blossom here then there’s no love to be had!

We hope you find love where you least expect it (because that’s where it always lies in waiting) and that any one of these outdoor date ideas here in the South Loop help your love blossom.
