Date Night in Omaha__ Your All -Encompassing Guide Omaha Mom
Do you feel like you’re stuck in a date night rut? My husband and I seem to always frequent the same places when we get a chance to go out, so I thought I’d look for some new fun things to do around Omaha. Why waste a valuable date night on the same old thing? Enjoy our date night guide; it’s everything you need to plan a great time—except the babysitter!

Film Buffs

If you love movies, we’ve got a few suggestions!

  • Enjoy dinner and a show at either of the Alamo Drafthouse Cinema locations in the
    Omaha area.
  • Catch the latest releases at any of the Marcus Theatres locations around town. The
    best part? They have free popcorn on Tuesdays!
  • If you’re looking for a more intimate movie-going experience, check out Film Streams
    Ruth Sokolof Theater or Dundee Theater.


Omaha is packed full of fantastic local restaurants. If you’re looking to skip the chains, try one of these local treasures:

  • Grab a table at Railcar Modern American Kitchen and get the brussel sprouts. You can
    thank us later.
  • Try some delicious pizza at Pitch Pizzeria, but be sure to make a reservation first!
  • If you’re looking for great drinks and eats in a beautiful atmosphere, check out Stirnella
    Bar & Kitchen.
  • To get your Asian small plate fix, check out Butterfish in the Blackstone District. Again,
    try the brussel sprouts!
  • Stop by some of the best local ice cream shops and get a delicious treat!
