The Perfect Date Night in Brooklyn: Dinner and a Show in Ditmas Park

on January 30, 2019

When it comes to planning the perfect date night, sometimes it is best to go with a proven classic - dinner and a show. While the modern equivalent, dinner and a movie, can be a bit boring, seeing a live performance is a great way to make a date feel special.

Whether you are planning out a first date or celebrating your 40th wedding anniversary, the combination of a great fine dining restaurant and an amazing theater performance or live musical show is sure to be a hit.

Dinner and a show is such a classic date option because it combines the best of everything - good food, a chance to chat in a nice restaurant atmosphere, and the opportunity to enjoy a great show together. For a truly magical night, head to Ditmas Park for the perfect dinner and theater option - fine dining at Atlas Steakhouse and a show at the beautifully restored Kings Theater.

Dinner at Atlas Steakhouse

If you are going to go with the classic dinner and a show date, you need to pick a great restaurant. There are plenty of fine dining options in the Ditmas Park neighborhood but, for by far the best steakhouse in Brooklyn, you will want to make a reservation at Atlas Steakhouse.

Opening back in 2015, the same year the Kings Theater reopened, our restaurant provides the perfect fine dining experience for a great date night. Our Mediterranean-style steakhouse is a perfect option for dinner in Brooklyn. Our menu features some of the best steaks you have ever tried, along with delicious sides and desserts. With a classy, upscale style and a relaxed atmosphere, the restaurant is perfect for long, date night conversations. We also offer live music and entertainment throughout the week.

A Show at Kings Theater

Now that you have dinner covered, for a great theater option in Brooklyn, you should definitely check out the schedule of shows at Kings Theater.

Also located in the Ditmas Park neighborhood, Kings Theater is a gorgeous, historic building originally opened in 1929. You can reach the theater from Atlas Steakhouse with just a quick 10 minute cab ride. Alternatively, the theater is a short 25 minute walk from Atlas Steakhouse, making it a nice option if you and your date would prefer to take a stroll on a warm, summer evening.

After many years of neglect, the Kings Theater building was restored to its former glory and reopened as a performing arts venue in 2015. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Kings Theater is not only a great place to catch a show but also an opportunity to see a beautiful piece of Brooklyn’s history.

Shows range from live musical performances to popular theater productions. With late evening showtimes, you will have plenty of time to enjoy dinner before heading to the theater.
