Date Night Destinations: The Queen’s

Scheduling date nights is vital at any stage of a relationship. From that pivotal first outing with a swipe match, to the 321st dinner out with your soulmate, date night should always be enjoyable.

The Queen’s is made to order for just such a unique evening. Whether you’re trying to impress a potential partner with your trivia acumen, or aim to treat your special someone to a special meal, the Hometown Pub offers a host of ideas for your next date night. 

For instance…


Darts have been a tradition in pubs since Noah started sourcing wood for marine use, and it can be a lively experience for you and your plus one.

You’ll find the boards on the sports side, with darts available to use for the evening.

If spectating is more your speed, the Queen’s hosts games every week. The city wide dart league pits teams from across Barrie against one another on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings.


Nothing says romance like teaming up to trounce competitors in the general knowledge arena.

Town Trivia arrives at the pub patio every Thursday, with prizes and eternal (or at least weekly) bragging rights up for grabs.

Town Trivia At The Queens

Live Music

The couple that gigs together, stays together. Moreover, with live performances from edgy local, regional, national and even international indie artists at the Dirty Q, music loving twosomes are spoiled for choice.

Ticketed concerts happen at least once a week, as well as acoustic bands on weekends. If you and your better half are more attuned to late night hijinks, DJs are on the decks on the weekends.

In addition, you can get your retro on with Throwback Thursdays. Featuring wayback tunes on the speakers and dialed back drink prices on the menu, it’s a melodic night out option that won’t deplete the bank account.

Fine Dining

Simplicity is best, sometimes. A straight up foodie night with a friendly face over choice cuisine is an easy, but charming experience for couples.

To that end, the Queen’s has enhanced their menu options recently. The new spread includes riffs on classics, all day breakfast, select salads and a profusion of vibrant cocktails. All of which can serve to activate your taste buds and set just the right tone for a winsome outing.

Big Game, Big Screen

Perhaps you and your companion bonded over a love of sports. After all, hurling insults at referees, and living and dying over every play on the grid iron/rink/field can be romantic.

Even if the two of you are less committed sports fans, the big screens on the sports side of the Queens are a destination of choice for prime time events.

NFL games are shown every Sunday during the season. Plus Raptors, Leafs and Jays contests. Taking them in on large scale viewing makes for a memorable night.
