Date ideas – 5 seconds from your apartment

Living at Midtown Crossing comes with loads of amenities: covered, underground parking; 24/7 security; 150+ events each year in Turner Park – but perhaps the best perk is living in the same neighborhood as your favorite hot spots.

Read on for four date night ideas – all just an elevator ride away from your Midtown Crossing apartment!


Just the two of you

  • Start your evening at 5168 Taproom. With more than a dozen beers, the hardest decision will be which ones to include on your tasting flight!
  • Take a quick jaunt to the Mediterranean with Della Costa’s coastal-inspired menu. Have your server help you pick a bottle of wine to match your dinner selections! 
  • As the night unwinds, make your way to PROOF for craft cocktails and a romantic atmosphere. Grab a seat at the bar to watch the bartenders at work.


Saturday Day-Date

  • Now open in the heart of the neighborhood, Culprit Café should be stop #1. Don’t miss the croissant-inspired French toast or what has to be Omaha’s BEST biscuits and gravy. #brunchgoals
  • Time to get creative! Check out the Corky Canvas and Corky Boards schedules to find a class and project of interest. With step-by-step guidance (and a bar!), you’re sure to have a great afternoon.
  • Cap off the date with margarita (or two!) at Cantina Laredo. Ask the bartender about the seasonal margaritas – and prepare to enjoy.


Double Date

  • Meet up at Leadbelly and sink your teeth into their signature “leadbellies”. Pro tip: choose the chips and queso as your side!
  • Alamo Drafthouse Cinema (currently under construction) is known as a true movie lovers’ theatre. Titles range from blockbusters to themed throwbacks you won’t want to miss.
  • Keep the evening going with ice cream from the one and only Cold Stone Creamery. You can’t go wrong!


Girls Night

  • Modern Love brings swanky vegan comfort food to midtown! (Even non-vegans have been known to enjoy!). Ask about the weekly special!
  • Stroll Farnam Street. Laugh at the greeting cards in The Afternoon. Design your very own succulent at hutch’s signature succulent bar. Grab a treat for your pups at Long Dog Fat Cat.
  • Head to Thirst Tea Café for the always Instagram-worthy bubble tea! Bonus – check out ping pong paddles and a ball (for free!) and enjoy the outdoor table tennis.


There you have it! Enjoy any one of our date ideas, especially knowing that you can be home, cuddling your dog in your comfy sweatpants within 5 seconds.
