Phase 2 Date Ideas In Singapore

After spending weeks apart due to the circuit breaker, it’s time to reignite the flames at these date places in Singapore. Even if you’re not looking for dates, this list is perfect if you’re looking for things to do over the weekend. 
Of course, those of you who already have a bae, bookmark these date ideas and save yourselves the torture of deciding what to do this weekend. 

1. Faber Peak

If you’re looking for a place to truly have some alone time with your date, then the Singapore Cable Car is the perfect date idea. In a cabin of your own away from the rest of the world, you don’t have to worry about noisy crowds interrupting your alone time. Take in the lush green hilltops, clear blue waters and of course, the picturesque Singapore skyline as you sail across to Sentosa Island.
You will need to pre-book your tickets before heading down as ticketing counters will not be opened during this time. Some other safety measures include having your very own cabin!

You can also choose to dine INSIDE your cable car while taking in the views. Enjoy a 4-course meal along with a complimentary glass of wine all in the privacy of your own cabin. 
P.S. You should probably tell bae that SHE’s the view. 
End off your date with dinner at Dusk, an alfresco dining option for all of you who prefer a more natural setting. Grab a seat outdoors and dine under the stars. As dusk falls, feel like you’re on top of the world! We guarantee it’ll be a one of a kind experience you’ll never forget.

2. Art Jamming

Get your (art) jam on at Arteastiq! Sit down with a cup of coffee and some tea bites and paint your best work on the canvas provided. We won’t suggest painting portraits of each other if you’re not a great artist, but instead, try painting halves that combine to form one picture. Pour your hearts out on the canvas and set your inner artist alight!

3. Pottery Workshop

Learn a new skill together at the Thow Kwang Pottery Jungle! Home to the oldest dragon kiln in Singapore, sign up for a pottery workshop and try your hand at making each other a thoughtful gift and of course memories that will last forever.
Get your hands dirty on the pottery wheel as you learn the makings of a good piece of ceramic. All materials are provided and experienced experts will guide you every step of the way.

4. LeatherCraft workshops

Leather Crafting workshops are a great way to create gifts for each other! While you can take the easy way out and just pick out any old cardholder, one made from the heart is definitely something any girl would find more precious. You’ll also be able to customize your works by engraving your initials on it. 

5. ArtScience Museum

The FutureWorld Exhibition at the ArtScience Museum is the perfect place to prove your worth as an #instagramboyfriend. With plenty of mesmerizing multimedia displays, be sure to capture your crush in her best angles. 
Do note that you will need to be a Sands Rewards member to enter during this period of time. 

6. Movies

If you’re afraid of running out of conversation topics, catching a movie first is the best gameplan. Even though you’ll have minimal opportunities to talk during the movie, you’ll have plenty to talk about after the show ends! 
You can also get your hands on the Golden Village M Pass and go on a movie marathon with bae! This allows you to catch 4 movies at just $5 each.

7. Mini Golf at Holey Moley

Score a hole in one and impress your crush at Holey Moley! This quirky mini-golf club has some of the most unique holes including a giant Monopoly set, Game of Thrones and even the Flintstones. 
Some safe-distancing measures in place include:
  • Readily available hand sanitiser in 10+ locations around the venue.
  • Implementing temperature measurement tools and checks in line with government guidelines. 
  • Increased regularity of sanitising point of sale screens, booth seats and tables, all equipment including ball dispensers, providing utensils for sharing menu items, mini-golf holes that require any contact, lift buttons and hand railing.
Pre-book your Holey Moley experience on Klook and enjoy a discount on your visit. In addition, tickets are valid for 2 months, leaving you sufficient time to muster up the courage to ask bae out. 
This Phase 2, they are currently only open for dining in. We suggest checking out their Facebook page for updates before heading down.

8. Fat Cat Arcade

There’s nothing like a bit of friendly competition to spice up your date and one place to bring out the fire in your crush is the Fat Cat Arcade. Score big prizes to take home for extra brownie points. 
Some of their safe-distancing measures include: 
  • 2m tall Acrylic Separators in-between machines
  • Players are to stand within the demarcated areas, to adhere to safe distancing rules
  • All machines are coated with an anti-bacterial coating, and we will be wiping down surfaces hourly or upon requests
  • Antiseptic Hand Sanitisers available around the shop
  • Plastic hand gloves available for usage
If you prefer to do things old school, we suggest heading to Settlers Cafe for some good old fashioned fun – Board Games! If you’re clueless on what game to play, just ask any of the friendly game consultants and you just might discover a new favourite.

9. Cafe hopping

Trust us when we say there’s nothing cuter than FURRY FRIENDS! Take your date to We are The Furballs, a friendly dog cafe where you’ll get to feed them treats and have them snuggle in your lap for a nap. I mean, who can resist the puppy dog eyes?
If they’re more of a cat person, the Cat Cafe in Bugis is home to some of the fluffiest cat who go crazy over some catnip. They can even do tricks like high-fives. 

10. Axe throwing

Aim for the bullseye to impress your crush at the Axe-Factor, a unique axe-throwing experience that is definitely not like any other. This is also the chance for you to put your arms around bae disguised as helping her adjust her throwing position. 

11. Escape Room

If you’d like to be trapped alone in a room with your crush for an hour without seeming like a creep, the Escape Room is the perfect excuse for you to do just that. Not only will you be able to show off your detective and problem-solving skills, but you’ll also get to play dress up!

12. Hiking

Stroll amongst lush greenery hand in hand with your loved one and escape from the bustle of work for a day. If you and bae love to work up a sweat, Singapore’s nature trails will have you walking through beautiful flora and fauna and you might even spot some elusive wildlife along the way. 

13. Day trip to nearby Islands

Had to postpone your minimoons? Why not head on a day trip to some of Singapore’s nearby islands? Pulau Ubin has plenty to do, from kayaking to fishing or even just cycling around the island. You can even choose to spend the night under the stars at their campgrounds. 

14. Trampoline Park

Make your hearts race at the Trampoline park Bounce where you can jump off walls and fly through the air. Show off your agility and try to outjump each other for some friendly competition.
