What is a low key date?

A low key date is a fun, unique and creative way to spend time with your date. Keeping your relationship private can be helpful in building trust, and can give you the space to get to know each other well.

Drag brunches are highly entertaining and a great way to break the ice on a first date. Plus they offer plenty of past paced action to keep the conversation flowing.

Roller skating

Roller skating is a fun way to bond with your date while getting a good workout. Just make sure you choose a rink that plays a mix of R&B, hip-hop, funk, house and soul music.

Roller skates can also be used for sports like speed skating, hockey and figure skating. Some extreme sports, known as aggressive roller skating, use wheels that are adapted from street skates.

Ice skating

Ice skating is a fun date that can be good for the body and mind. Just make sure that you choose a rink where both of you are comfortable enough to be on the ice.

This can also be a great way to bond with each other over how clumsy you both may be. Hold hands, laugh, and help each other up if needed.


Tennis is a fun and active date idea for couples who enjoy getting their sweat on. It also promotes interaction and communication between the two of you.

If your love interest wants to keep your relationship private but not secret, it may be a sign they want low key dating. They want to take things slow and make sure they’re comfortable with the relationship before taking it further.

Brewery tours

Brewery tours are an excellent way for beer lovers to experience their favorite brews at the source. Brewery tour itineraries can be customized to fit the interests of guests.

Brewery tours can offer educational value, allowing participants to learn about different brewery techniques and brewing history. They also offer the opportunity to meet other beer enthusiasts.

Beach day

A relaxing day at the beach is a low key date that allows you to enjoy the beautiful sun and soothing surf. You can play beach games or just sit back and enjoy the waves.

There’s nothing quite like a day at the beach to take your mind off your problems. National Beach Day offers many opportunities for individuals and businesses to get involved in beach-related activities.


Whether you’re the next Ina Garten or more like David from Schitt’s Creek, making a meal together is a fun date that also allows for some quality talking time.

For introverts, this could be a good opportunity to talk without feeling too uncomfortable. You can even try an indoor picnic with a blanket, wine and finger foods. This would be great for a first date.

Thrift store shopping

Thrifting is the best low key date for first dates because it’s cheap, personal but not too intimate. It also helps you bond with your date and find out more about them.

Find out when your thrift store restocks and shop on that day. You’ll have less competition and get the first look at their new merchandise.

For example, the NYC based Housing Works shop is one of the best places to find secondhand clothing while helping those with HIV/AIDS.

Comedy show

Laughter really is the best medicine, and there’s no better way to bond with a date than by watching a comedy show. Keep in mind that comedians like engaged audiences, so make an effort to put away your phone, respond when asked, and be respectful of the performers. Consider seeing a showcase, which is when comics work out longer sets they’ll tour with or film for a special.


I think it’s fair to say that everyone has a different definition of what makes a museum. The big museums have huge marketing budgets to promote their newest exhibition. They can bring in huge loaned exhibits to generate major revenue streams.

The International Council of Museums is currently attempting to foster a new international consensus on the museum definition. The methodology is based on consultation and data analysis.
