Couple drinking wine together
Try some Rochester brews

Rochester dating has many blessings, and one of the most delicious has to be the fact that this is Wine country. In fact, The Finger Lakes of New York are the largest and most celebrated wine producing region in the Eastern United States. With several hundred wineries easily accessible from Rochester, impress your date with day on the Keuka Lake Wine Trail: the quality wine and incredible views equal romance.

If you and your date are more into beer, you've also got plenty of options in Rochester. Singles on the dating scene rave about Roc Brewing, a downtown hot spot since 2011. Not only is their beer delicious and their tasting room cozy, the view from the huge windows makes this a great place to watch the sunset. Now that's a date idea!

Find a cozy winter date idea

Those long, cold winter months can be tough for Rochester singles. While some winter date ideas will encourage you to get out and embrace the snow, sometimes it's nicer to just get cozy. Take shelter and experience a classic Rochester date idea at the same time with the Geva Theatre. Whether you see a play, watch some comedy, or check out some live music, there's something to suit everyone.

Pre or post theatre, try a date at The Vesper. Located just around the corner from the Geva, this is a great gastropub that offers oysters and cocktails alongside traditional bar snacks. It might just be the perfect combination of romance and relaxation! Hunker down out of the cold, order something from their fantastic wine list, and make your date last late into the night.
