Looking for a place that has it all? This is it. Atlas is the epitome of date night. Located right off the Fayetteville Square, the ambiance is perfect whether you choose to be in the lounge/bar area, dining area, or on the patio. The cocktails are delicious down to every last detail. You cannot go wrong with anything on their rotating menu, but if you see lamb chops that is our recommendation! Want to keep the night going? You can walk to Vault for a cocktail and more upscale vibes or head right across the street to Fayetteville's staple, Maxines.

We love Leverett Lounge because it fits any date night vibe you're looking for. You can dress to the nines or come in athleisure... anything goes and fits right in with the eclectic atmosphere! They have a rotating menu that keeps things fresh every time you visit. Two items that stay on their menu, Mel's Diner for an appetizer (fried cheese grits) and the KFC for dinner, are our recommendations! You can expect a well crafted speciality cocktail menu, but we love their house sangria too! The pitcher is perfect to share at the table!

An upscale Italian spot right off the Fayetteville Square, Vetro has the regular Italian staples, but they also have some other amazing dishes. Our favorite is actually not is the pork chop. Even if you aren’t usually a pork chop person, this one is simply divine. The food is not only fantastic, but there is also something on the menu for everyone. Our go-to drink here is the old fashioned, but they also have a long list of wines - perfect to pair with Italian food!

Known for their amazing happy hour, Theo's is perfect if you're craving a great cocktail, tasty apps, or looking to enjoy a good patio! Once you're finished with happy hour, we recommend heading inside for a nice dinner. Theo's is also fantastic way to end any evening with a delicious drink at their bar/lounge. They have two locations, one is in Fayetteville and the other is in Rogers.

Heirloom at 1907

Heirloom is located in the heart of downtown Rogers yet hidden in the building 1907 in typical speakeasy fashion. Heirloom at 1907 is the perfect place for a special, intimate night. With enough seating for only 20 people, reservations are a must.. and sometimes they book out several months in advance, so plan ahead! Not only does it feel like a speakeasy, the food is amazing and very unique, making the whole experience something to talk about for days.

Local Lime is a causal setting but with a fun, trendy vibe, plus has amazing food... This is an NWA Daily staff favorite! We love ordering the salsa trio, queso, and fajitas, and you definitely don't want to forget about a margarita! Truly, you can't wrong with anything on the menu. We recommend arriving early to get a table or to stroll the Promenade if there is a wait

If you’re dreaming of the food in Barcelona, you can now have it in NWA with this new spot in downtown Rogers. They make eating dinner an experience with a variety of different tapas to choose from. After you finish your tapas, we would recommend finishing your evening with a walk around the newly renovated downtown Rogers, get some crafty cocktails from the Foreman Bar, or check out some live music and have a delicious doughnut from Levi’s.

Bonefish Grill

Most people know Bonefish Grill by their Bang Bang Shrimp, but there are so many amazing things here. The fish is fresh and delicious, and they make some fantastic cocktails. We highly recommend the smoked old fashioned and their Chilean Sea Bass and Ahi Tuna Sashimi. For those not as interested in fish, their filets are also really tasty. They have seasonal specials and drinks, so there is always something new to branch out and try!



The Hive

πŸ“200 NE A St, Bentonville, AR 72712

Located in downtown Bentonville in the swanky, upscale hotel 21C, you can enjoy a cocktail and delicious appetizer at their bar or walk around the hotel lobby and check out the rotating art galleries while you wait to be seated. The food is just as good of as the art with a wide variety of options to choose from. Chef Matthew McClure has won several awards for his fresh, locally sourced food that has a southern twist. At the end of the meal, they bring out cotton candy, which is the icing on the cake.

The Preacher's Son is located in a restored, historic church off of the Bentonville Square. The inside is beautiful, with stained glass windows throughout and a very open concept, while still offering a small and intimate feeling. They offer a unique but delicious menu with a long list of wine and cocktail options. After dinner, you can make your way downstairs to the speakeasy, Undercroft, or head to their rooftop patio for drinks.

Louise is not only a recommendation for a dinner date, but also for a breakfast or lunch date! Besides delicious food, it also comes with a show. It overlooks the runway at Thaden Airport, so you can watch planes take off and land as you are sipping a mimosa or an afternoon beer and burger. The menu has diner style options and some amazing southern style dishes. After your meal we recommend a walk at the nearby Osage Park.

Tavola Trattoria is located on the Bentonville Square and offers any Italian dish you may want! They have traditional spaghetti , lasagna, and pizza, but we would recommend the Marcelo's Special (beef tenderloin, penne pasta, and pesto)! If you are going on a double date there, they have an option to serve dishes family style for a fun dining experience!
