How To Impress Your Date Without Breaking The Bank (Just Denting It) – Western Mass

Trying to impress a first date? Tired of the same old date night spots? Well, we have some fresh locations that offer killer vibes, amazing food, and prices that won’t break the bank.

Baba Sushi

Baba Sushi founder Wilson Wang has received enough awards and accolades to fill up a Bill Belichick-sized trophy cabinet. With the word “sushi” in the name, it is safe to assume that this restaurant is making top tier rolls (They are).

Aside from sushi, Baba has much more to offer. They are also serving up delicious hot pot, which will fill your soul with warm goodness. On top of that, they have an extensive craft cocktail list. For those of you who like drinks on the spicy side, Diablo‚Äôs Brew brings the perfect kick. Alternatively, if you are looking to “Have a night” their Mango Mai Tai will give you the jump start you are looking for.

Theodores’ Blues, Booze, and BBQ

With a name like that do we even need to write a review? Theodores’ has everything needed for a kick-ass date night: Fire food, great live music, and a robust draft list. On top of that, located above Theodores’ is a pool house with tables as far as the eye can see. Food-wise Theodores’ brings it on all cylinders. All of their BBQ is smoked with hickory wood, and we’re confident your mouth will start watering the second you walk through the door.

Of course, they have all the classics like burnt ends and brisket, but Theodores’ also offers some items you won’t see at your everyday BBQ joint, such as blackened chicken penne and smoked meatloaf dinner.


No, you did not just step into a time machine that transported you to 1950’s, but it sure feels like it when you step foot into Galaxy. Their food is as far as can be from the TV dinner era. Any good date night spot would not be complete without a fire drink list, which Galaxy boasts without question. Some of our favorites at this date night spot are the braised short rib and the pistachio crusted salmon.
