Date Nights DC Itinerary: Sweet Surprises

Set the mood for a posh getaway when you check into the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Washington D.C. Its elegant design, premier location and inspiring views of the Southwest waterfront are the perfect prelude to romance.

Surprise her with an appointment at the Mandarin’s award-winning spa. Reserve a special massage for you and your significant other, or spoil your lady with an Oriental bamboo massage just for her.

Eat

Watch the sunset over the Potomac River from Georgetown Harbor and hit up the lounge at Bourbon Steak at the Four Seasons Hotel. Order the wagyu and pork hot dog or Korean barbeque salmon.

Do

From there, pop over to the National Theatre to catch a performance. This month, an evening with William Shatner is on the lineup as well as an engagement with the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Eat

Sleep late the next day, then head to Birch and Barley on 14th Street for its revered brunch. Sip on the bespoke brunch punch as you and yours lay claim to everything from apple-infused salads and quiches to fried chicken and waffles and doughnuts.
