If you’re new to Chelan or you’re not sure where to start, we have a few suggestions for you. Here is how to have the perfect date night in Lake Chelan:

Step 1: Treat Your Sweetheart to a Nice Dinner

A romantic dinner is just what you need to start off date night. For an awesome date spot, we recommend Andante. This fabulous Italian-style restaurant is the perfect setting for a romantic dinner. From the luxurious atmosphere to the extensive food and drink menus, your partner will love that you took the time to make reservations at such a nice restaurant. We recommend trying the Tuscan Seafood Stew or the classic Andante’s Spaghetti and Meatballs. Order a glass of your favorite white or red to pair it with, and enjoy each other’s company over an outstanding meal.

Step 2: Walk Through Historic Downtown

With everything from antique shops to sweet treats, this area of Chelan offers something for everyone. The small town charm mixed with modern elegance of downtown embodies the diversity of the Lake Chelan area. You’ll love it so much, you may want to come back the next day!

Step 3: Catch Some Live Music

After you’ve satisfied your appetites and ventured on your romantic stroll, find some of the live music happening all throughout Lake Chelan. For a casual experience, head over to Stormy Mountain Brewing to listen to some music over a pint. If coffee shop jams are more of your style, try The Vogue Liquid Lounge, a local coffee shop that moonlights as a live music venue and bar in the evenings. Whatever style of music you’re into, you’ll find it in Chelan. For live music, a fine dining experience and unbeatable views of Lake Chelan, we recommend making reservations at Amos Rome.
