Date Night #1 – Muse Paintbar – 115 Apex Dr., Marlborough, MA 01752
While thinking about the top 5 date night locations in Metro West, we kept coming back to Muse Paintbar. We’ve been to several different places for paint nights, but there’s a reason we’ve fallen in love with Muse Paintbar.
They describe themselves as the place that “combines painting instruction with a restaurant & bar.” We love that they offer a variety of classes and paintings that can range from painting your own pet or a pre-set photograph. They make the entire process fun and easy! They even offer a menu in advance so you know what food/drink they’ll have for your event.
There’s a chance you’ll find us there for a painting or two. If you do, make sure you say hi to the Boundless team!

Date Night #2 – Elm Draught House Cinema – 35 Elm St., Millbury, MA 01527
The “Elm” is a staple in the Metro West area. In fact, it should have already been checked off on your list of date night ideas. The Elm is a Cinema Pub Serving Beer, Wine & Soft Drinks for beverages. The Elm should be your go-to spot to catch a movie, a game or to enjoy a local comedy night.
We love the Elm because of the history and welcoming feel. The Theatre was originally opened in the late 30’s and ran through the mid 70’s with approximately 700 seats. It was converted to the Cinema Pub in 1983 with tables spreading out the seats for extra legroom. The Elm currently has 300 seats, which includes the original ones from the 30’s (don’t worry they offer seat cushions as well.)
With 45 5-star reviews on Yelp, it’s easy to understand why people love what The Elm has to offer. Go enjoy a date night in the Metro West area you won’t soon forget.

Date Night #3 – Escape Room Worcester – 108 GROVE STREET, WORCESTER, MA 01605
If you’re looking for a different kind of date night, an escape room in the Metro West Area is near the top of our list.
Our top pick for a local escape room is Escape Room Worcester. We’re such big fans because of the variety of escape rooms they offer and the reviews that say the rooms make you feel like you’re truly there.
In fact, it’s the visitor reviews that pushed us over the edge and made us dive deeper into Escape Room Worcester.
It’s the perfect date night for couples of all ages as you can work together, or in groups, to solve the puzzles that keep you locked inside. It’s actually perfect for a double-date as you can pair with another couple to solve the clues between the four of you (versus pairing with some random players from Metro West).
We have a feeling you’ll be working right up to the end, as many of their escape rooms have a success (solving all puzzles to escape) rate of less than 50%!

Date Night #4 – Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers – 102 Clinton Street, Framingham, MA 01702
This one comes with the disclaimer that you need to be 21+ to take part in this date night idea.
That’s because next on the Metro West Date Night list is Jack’s Abbey! Founded in 2011 by three brothers, Jack, Eric, and Sam Hendler, Jack’s Abby has become a mainstay of the craft brewing scene in the Northeast and nationwide.
We know there are a TON of great breweries and beer in the Metro West and surrounding area. We picked Jack’s Abbey to make the list because of their dedication to brewing only lagers. They’ve had more than 500,000 ratings on Untapped.com (The rating app of breweries, beer drinkers and more).
Here you can explore their brewery and Beer Hall & Kitchen, have a pint, some fresh wood-fired pizza. They even have an experimental and barrel-aging taproom on-site as well.
If you’re 21 or older, we think it’s the perfect date night for everyone from lager lovers to those looking for something new.
