Romantic Date Ideas in Wichita

Romantic Date Ideas in WichitaEven if you see your significant other every day, the usual routines of work and the kids and other commitments may make it seem like the romantic spark between the two of you has dwindled. That's nothing that a romantic night out can't fix! Whether you and your honey have been together for years or this is just your "get-to-know-each-other" phase, these ideas will give you the chance to have fun with one another and make a lasting connection in your relationship.

Wichita Grand Opera
The Wichita Grand Opera offers you a chance to see stellar performances like Puccini's Madama Butterfly and local productions like the 10th Anniversary of There's No Place Like Home in a first-class venue that features stunning acoustics and equally compelling production values. You and your date will enjoy getting close to one another while enjoying the operatic masterworks that are unfolding in front of you on your romantic rendezvous.

Orpheum Theatre
Instead of heading to the cold and impersonal metroplex to catch a new movie, add a touch of vintage class to your romantic evening with your sweetie by checking out a play, a movie or a concert at the Orpheum Theatre. It opened in 1922, and since then, the structure has not only brought entertainment to several generations of audiences, but the building itself has become somewhat of a star in its own right. The 1,300 seat venue is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is roundly considered to be a vital part of Wichita's cultural and architectural heritage.

Roxy's
Roxy's Downtown is the next chapter in the space that is 412 1/2 E Douglas, a space that has a long relationship with the downtown scene of Wichita. Stories and memories seem to rise up from just about everyone I have met so far in this adventure, from memories of a long past 25cent theatre with a penny arcade and pool hall below where Gallery XII now resides, to The Looking Glass with sound studio above (Big Dog Sound Studios) with Roxy's Downtown cocktail club hosting such rising stars as Harry Connick Jr., to sitting empty for several years with dormant potential until Cabaret Oldtown came into existence in 1992. Cabaret Oldtown bloomed for 22 wonderful and beloved years before Roxy's took up the torch. The Cabaret spirit will always remain in the heart and the soul of Roxy's.
