  1. My favorite date spot is a coffee shop that's just down the street. I find it's easier to talk to someone over coffee rather than a full on dinner, not to mention, it's easier to escape if the date goes bad!

  2. There's this cute, hipster-ish place in Montreal's Mile End called Le Dépanneur Café where everything is homemade, the food and drinks are delicious, and there's always people playing acoustic music, all day long. (Musicians can actually audition to play there.) All the tables, chairs and couches are vintage, and the brick walls make the place so warm and cozy. It's always quiet but friendly. Plus, where can you get the best coffee ever for 2$ these days?! It's the perfect spot to chat, and if the date doesn't go well, you probably can find a new date there, everybody, including the staff, looks good! 😉 I am in LOVE with Le Dépanneur Café!

  3. i feel like the colour is more of a heat wave orange in that pic! My fave date spot is at Opera Bar where underneath the Sydney Opera House, with a view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge!

  4. My favorite date spot would be a sushi resturant in Washington DC called Sei. This is a great spot to eat. The guys love it, the menu is not too complex. Each dish is enticing and interesting. The drinks are so good, you have to try at least two. Everything is very chi chi and trendy. The lighting is perfect, the music is nice, and its a great place to take pictures. Also a great place for celebrations and birthday gatherings. This is now the go to place for my boyfriend and I. Thanks

  5. My favorite date spot would be at Oasis a jacuzzi spot in Ann Arbor. With a indoor jacuzzi room filled with valentine's balloons, chocolates, strawberries, heart shaped rose petals..the works!! Oh and let's not forget the WINE!

  6. My favorite date spot is the super old one screen theater near my house. What's better than snuggling up on vintage red velvet seats for an old black & white and some popcorn?

  7. Fab colour for the colur blocking trend! Aah my favourite date spot is in Notting Hill London – Toms, a little cafe thats always bustling and has the best food! Plus it's not uncomfortable and you can pop over to the Lonsdale bar for a drink which is super secluded and chic. Favourite place ever!

  8. My favourite dating spot varies depending on the country I'm in (I travel a lot), but wherever I am, I will always look for small, private coffee shop with candle light and something along the lines of Leonard Cohen or Regina Spektor playing in the background, and the long alley with trees growing on each side of it. There are places like this everywhere, and everywhere they feel just as magical.

  9. This bag os gourgeous, the colour is fabulous!! And I loved the look you choose, with stripes and light denin. Very nice!

  18. The absolute best place in town is an amazing restaurant named "Maddux Station". It's very cool and hip, and it has the best food ever. It's the place to be and be seen in my very small, rural town. Miss Charlotte would absolutely love it there! 🙂

  19. I live in Greece and once of the best places I've been on a romantic date was a cafe located at the top floor of an old cinema building with a stunning view on the city's main ancient square and the sea… Oh, and need I add that when we first went there on a date it just happened that an open-air fashion show by local designers was organized right below our terrace – fun for me and some quite time for my bf, lol:)))

    There is an entrance to the bar alone on North 1st.
    It is cozy and warm and has red tones to the decor. The drinks are delicous and the barmen very attentive. Because there is no sign on the bar entrance, it always feels like a cool, intimate speakeasy.

  36. My favorite date spot has to any of the cliff sites in San Diego. Known for our beaches, I think the cliffs that overlook the ocean is the perfect date spot. You can bring a blanket and have a picnic while you watch the sunset!

  37. I would take the The Botkier Charlotte Satchel in lipstick red to the perfect date spot, walking down the Santa Monica pier!

  38. My fav spot for a date is at Toronto's Humber Arboretum. You and your date can stroll through lush gardens, and spot wild straberries growing in the spring time and be amazed at the beautiful colours of the tress in the Fall. Stop by at one of the ponds near the meadows where you and your date can spot turtles and fish swimming. This place is also a great picnic spot, sit under a tree or at a bench, you can find some private areas and feel like you and your date are the only ones there.

    The best thing about the arboretum is that it looks different every season and you can take in nature with someone special right in the city. My boyfriend of seven years took me here on our first date. We try to go to our favourite spot any time we can.

  39. Favorite date spot is a intimate restaurant called Il Capriccio on Vermont.
    found this little place with my husband while walking around on our one year anniversary 2010. its such a nice friendly environment. We always see Malin Akerman sipping wine with the owners there.

  40. My ultimate date spot that my bf and I always go to is Magic Lamp Lebanese Mediterranean Grill in LB, CA! We had our first date there and we always come back on our anniversary, we just celebrated our 3 years last month =) Of course we don't just come back because of the significance it holds but the food is die for: falafels, fresh outta thee oven pita bread (bottomless as well), hummus, garlic fries with feta cheese sprinkled on top, kabobs, kafta, filet Mignon. The decor is absolutely gorgeous, kinda feels like you're in the movie Aladdin haha but they have comfy lil booths or couches so you can sit close to your loved one <3

  43. My favorite date spot with my boyfriend is this little authentic Italian pizza shop down the street from our apartment. We can walk there, get a healthy pizza with fresh mozzarella, some cold beers and just enjoy each others company. Its not extravagant, but after being together for 5 years, its nice to be together in a quiet place with a great atmosphere.

  44. I don't have a favorite date spot. I love trying out new places. I haven't quite found the perfect quiet coffee/desert place yet. I'm from Montreal so can't say there is a shortage of cool hang out places.

  45. My favorite spot for a date would be … anywhere as long as I'm with my love. But I especially like to wander around in IKEA and eat cheap icecream!

    PS. I had a feeling that I typed the wrong email on the previous comment, but this one is correct!

  51. favorite date spot in my city would be kakurenbo (in vancouver) for after dinner drinks and snacks, amazing ambiance, too bad they are renovating right now!

  52. I live in the Netherlands, near a river, and the best thing for a date is to make a picknick and take your date to the river and sit down and have a good chat over wine and some snacks on a plaid near the water!

  53. My 'hood is Los Angeles so without being totally overpriced and insanely crowded, the perfect date is something spontaneous and low key. Maybe a trip to the museums on wilshire like LACMA and then a simple sushi dinner. Sounds perfect to me! Now if only I can find a boy to do it with this Valentines Day…

  54. This beautiful and hip bag would be perfect for a day of shopping in downtown Seattle, followed by a walk on the pier, and dinner at my favorite wine bar and cafe!

  61. The Salisbury Cafe is the most lovely place with it's tiled walls, mismatched vintage chairs, and candle light for a perfect date meal!

  62. Dockside Bistro in Olympia. From the outside it looks like a random restaurant along the marina, but the place has the most romantic ambiance of any place I have ever been and amazing food. And it affords a great stroll along the water afterwards 🙂

  63. I’m from new york, so when i first came out to Pittsburgh to school I was incredibly disappointed by what I deemed as such a lusterless hard place in comparison. Even wearing lipstick and wedges would get you glared at, and life seemed to pass by in hordes of dreary grey + sweatpants.

    Then a boy invited me to a gallery crawl downtown in the cultural district. I was apprehensive at first, but I’m so glad I went it was the most amazing time. I had divine truffle brownies from the cooking school and although it was clear the city was going through hard times there was art everywhere. There was this one gallery just full of speakers blasting the Ramones and we stayed there dancing before curling up in the corner of this little coffee shop. Definitely my favorite date spot in the city

  64. My dating spot would be Red Lobster at Times Square, New York. There's a few spots I like in New York for dinner but this place is tasty for cheap! Also I love walking around Times Square after dinner for sightseeing and photos!

  68. One of my favorite date spots is The Snug in Hell's Kitchen, NYC. It's a great bar to go on a date when you are meeting them for the first time or just want to keep it casual! The bartenders are super friendly, there are always enough people there to make it comfortable, and it is never too loud that you can't hear the other person. And if the date goes well, there are plenty of cute restaurants down the street that you can get dinner at!

  69. griffith observatory in LA, at dusk, on a weekday–it's not as crowded (insane the weekends), you can see the whole city and watch the sun set, and when it's dark you can use their observatory to look at the stars… romantic and price appropriate for everyone 😉

  76. I would show this bag off everywhere I went! Jaws will drop…. Eyes bulging out in disbelief…….Whispers of jealousy in the wind……Skin turning green with envy…………yup…….I would take it everywhere!

    • My favotite date spot (I forgot to mention) is Don's Lighthouse Inn – Seafood restaurant, great ambience, awesome food – with my honey. It's OUR favorite date spot!

  77. it is nothing more romantic to me than to go to Barns'n'Nobles with my boyfriend to cuddle on the floor with a pile of books and magazines 🙂

  78. My favorite spot was actually with my fiance at home in NYC queens where he proposed to me last year, romantic candlelight dinner cheap wine he made it all worth it..

  87. This satchel is absolutely adorable and the color is so loud yet sophisticated. A favorite date spot I would sport this bag would be in La Fonda Boriqua. It is this Puerto Rican Lounge in 106th Street by 3rd Ave. It’s a comfy place; it gives off a home like vibe with good food and live music. Very laid back atmosphere. A great place to go with a group of friends or just with one you love to snuggle up next to one another and enjoy the food, music and most of all each others company.

  88. In my area of Bayside, my favorite spot is Fort Totten. It's right off the Cross Island Parkway and overlooks the Throgs Neck Bridge. In the summertime, people of all ages visit. I've seen young couples and older couples enjoying a stroll and the view, especially at night. People bring their dogs and kids there to play during the day. It holds a special place in my heart because that's where my boyfriend and I fell in love.

  95. Hi! This will be my first valentines with my bf! There's a small french restaurant we like to go for duck confit (Reno, I know) or just staying in enjoying a home cooked meal. I bought him a red dutch oven and a Bourdain book to go along with it! Hopefully something wonderful to happen~

  98. I live in Montreal and my favorite date spot is Parc la Fontaine. My boyfriend took me there for Valentines last year and we're deciding on making it our Valentines spot. Its a park near where we live and its essentially an ice rink. Except its not your usual round ice rink. The entire lake is frozen so you don't just skate in a circle, but you get to go around trees and bushes and its beautiful in the winter, especially with the amount of snow.

  104. I'd love to rock rock this bag in my bike basket as we cycle to our favorite date spot: a fab Mexican fusion bistro a few blocks from my house in Tempe AZ. The luscious red color would compliment my tasty margarita.

  105. My fave date spot would definitely be the Singapore Flyer. Get on at dusk and watch the sun go down and the city skyline light up. It's 30 minutes of good solid conversation with no distractions but the view.

  122. I live in Vancouver, Canada. My favourite date spot has got to be Granville Island. During the day, it would be the perfect spot to stroll through the markets.
