According to their site, they've been a “key place for deeper conversation, creative expression, and community transformation,” since opening in 1960. But you should totally reserve an igloo for you and your date on the Watergate Hotel rooftop -- one of the best rooftop bars in town -- for afternoon tea.If you want to go bigger, splurge on a pricier per person pairing of a burger, whiskey, and cigars. Either way, Union Market has almost any cuisine you and your date could be feening for, even if it's two different things.They've also debuted a small ice skating rink on the roof, with a skate-up bar dishing out boozy hot cocoa. Rows of stalls feature local offerings from Korean tacos to authentic Belgian Wafels, and nearby Angelika Pop-Up is the place to go for specialty film programming and unique events.

Bring a date to the US Botanical Gardens next to the Capitol Building -- beautiful fountains and rooms full of interesting plants from around the globe will help set the mood for romance.

Even better -- it's right on the National Mall, so if the date goes well you can museum hop to spots like the Hirschhorn or the National Museum of Natural History. If you and your date are dying to catch a new flick, don't take them to just any old movie theatre.

Good options include the Gibson on 14th Street and Harold Black in Eastern Market.

Whether it's the latest concerts, food and drink festivals, or just insane dance parties, every weekend brings new events to DC that would be perfect options for any date.

You can also check out our list of the best winter beers from local breweries as a good starting point.

Bring your date to a game at Capital One Arena, or impress them with tickets to a show.

Tickets typically go for and sell out, so purchase in advance and prepare to enjoy rotating lineups of live music, food, and a cash bar.

Skip the bar and instead meet your date at the local favorite The Potter's House, a nonprofit cafe, for a great selection of books, food, and coffee that you can feel good about.

(And if Board Room won't do, try any of these other great bars with games.) While the museums on the National Mall are always a great option, the smaller galleries off the beaten path have worthwhile gems you might never see elsewhere.

Impress your date with a trip to the Phillips Collection, America's first modern art museum, on the first Thursday of the month for their “Phillips After 5” events.

Right Proper, 3 Stars, and DC Brau are all great choices, or head to Ivy City if distilleries are more your speed.
