Double Date Ideas In + Around Lansing

This time of year, we’re all excited about celebrating love and friendship. It’s always fun to get out for a date with your significant other, but what about asking another couple to join you?! A double date is a great way to connect with other couples that you might not get to see very often. Friends who are truly like family can be a rarity and it’s important to foster those relationships. Here are five double date ideas to inspire you to get together with some of your closest couple friends.

Cooking Classes

Grab your partner and friends and enter the delectable world of culinary art. Sweet Encounter supplies both sweet and savory cooking classes located in downtown Lansing. Also, Le Chat Gourmet Culinary Arts in Eaton Rapids offers classes in all cooking levels. This is a fun way to do something creative as a group. As a bonus, you get to enjoy what you cook at the end!

Escape Room

There are plenty of options in the area to get your brain cells going. Friendly competition with your crew or with another group of folks can make it a memorable night. Local Escape Rooms include: Breakout Escape Rooms, Escapology Escape Rooms, The Pod Escape Room, and Challenges East Lansing.

Game Night

Gather those board games or cards for a cozy night in by the fireplace, or head out to a Trivia Night at your favorite local bar or restaurant. Remember stay levelheaded if you’re super competitive, have fun – it’s just a game! This is a great option for those who like to go out for date night or who prefer to stay in.


Warm up those vocal cords, maybe take some liquid encouragement, and sing till your heart is content. Karaoke is a fun and silly way to show off your hidden talents. Some great places for karaoke include: Crunchy’s, Green Door Blues Bar and Grill, and One North Kitchen and Bar.


Helping others in need is such a gift. There are many organizations in the Greater Lansing Area that would welcome volunteers with open arms. Greater Lansing Foodbank, Lansing Women’s Center, and Lansing Earth Project are all places who would love to have your time and energy as a volunteer.

Of course, this is just a short list of some fun things to do with your significant other and favorite couple friends. Making the time to spend with friends is so important and you’ll be able to cherish the memories forever.
