Everyone is moving west! Aspen is making the suburbs look cool and 85th street SW is looking pretty hot for the culinary scene.  Here are a few favourites for date night in the suburbs.

Mercato West

Just as amazing as it’s sister on 4th Street. Mercato is perfect for any occassion. 

My Favourite Ice Cream Shoppe

 72 flavours of ice cream, milk shakes, sundaes, banana splits, sorbet and sugar free ice cream. It’s an old school concept in a new location- bring your sweet tooth.

Original Joe’s

Oj’s is always a reliable choice for delicious food and daily specials. Our favourite is Thursday night wine night- half price bottles! OJ’s is great for brunch, lunch, dinner or late night.  A good spot to watch the game or for a casual dinner date!

Redwater Rustic Grille

Redwater is a chef and sommelier driven restaurant that features fresh food-locally sourced. They have a fab wine list and can accommodate private parties. On Tuesday’s you can enjoy half price wine (we really love wine).

Vin Room West

Vin Room is a gorgeous wine and tapas bar that serves unique wines by the glass. You and your date can enjoy a charcuterie and cheese plate with their ‘build your own platter’ option, or try some vin classics. My favourite is the lobster nachos and chickpea fritters-served with a mint yogurt and roast pepper and walnut dip. Vin room is the perfect spot for a casual glass at the bar, an intimate dinner for two or a dinner party with your closest friends. 


The Lady Bug Café is a beautiful, sunny café in the heart of Aspen. Only the finest, organic ingredients go into making each bistro item, loaf of bread, pastry, and coffee. Your date will be nothing short of impressed.

Fergus & Bix

Fergus & Bix brings you a comfortable environment to hang out with your friends, eat dinner, or watch the game. They pride themselves on a wide range of beers on tap so this will definitely be a new watering hole for many beer drinkers. Hoping to impress a boy? Suggest Fergus & Bix for your next date.
