Are you a couple out to relax and have a bit of fun away from the resort for your summer vacation? Maybe you’re lucky and have a family member willing to babysit for a bit of personal vacation time, and you want something to do in the local area. Perhaps you have a kid old enough to take care of themselves and their siblings. We promise we won’t tell, but it’s okay if you are a bit tired of the Disney movies too. Regardless of the circumstances, Hilton Head has plenty of great date night geared activities to include on a wonderful vacation just for you!
A Classic Hangout
Next on our stop around Hilton Head is a local classic. Reilley’s Grill & Bar has been a staple of the area since opening as a small pub in 1982. Tom and Diane Reilley moved here thirty-seven years ago to open up a small establishment. Throughout the years, Reilley’s has changed staff, altered their menu, and even undertaken a slight location change after a fire; however, it remains family-owned and operated to this very day! The first Hilton Head Island St. Patrick’s Day Parade was born here and the tradition has continued ever since. The restaurant is also home to the RMN Matchplay Championship, a golf tournament that donates proceeds to charity. Not only is Reilley’s one of the great community staples, but the restaurant backs up their local reputation with wonderful food, televisions to catch your favorite sports and even regular live music performances. All these are great reasons to stop in and have a drink or grab a bite!
Having a Laugh!
Hilton Head has the perfect show for those looking for a laugh and a meal at the Comedy Magic Cabaret! Run by the famous Kerry Pollock with his tagline of “Funny Not Filthy,” this upscale comedy venue has all the makings for a great night out featuring the returning act of Kerry Pollock, as well as many other guest acts throughout the week! The cabaret also offers great dining options, house specialty cocktails, and other alcoholic beverages! Reservations are not required; however, they are recommended, as seating is limited due to the intimate nature of the venue.
Easy on the Ears
Imagine; a darkened low-light room, fantastic gourmet food, and a show The Jazz Corner, located in The Village at Wexford, is a dining experience that will make for a memorable vacation. Celebrating twenty years of pairing gourmet food with the utmost of sensational entertainment, the Jazz Corner does not disappoint. Built by the late Jazz musician and historian, Bob Masteller, the Jazz Corner has become an important Lowcountry landmark for the celebration of its musical history. With a deliciously intimate atmosphere fused with innovative southern and Lowcountry flavors, it is the perfect setting to enjoy the entertainment you won’t find anywhere else. Reservations are recommended; however, walk-ins are welcome as well. It’s a perfect capstone for a memorable vacation and the perfect idea for a night out!
Feelin’ the Groove
Our last stop on the tour around Hilton Head ends with One Hot Mama’s, which is led by Chef Orchid. Recently named a South Carolina Chef Ambassador in 2016, Chef Orchid has one amazing restaurant on her hands! With food ranging from southern classics like BBQ to scrumptious chicken wings, there’s something delicious for every palate. Happy hour is from 4-7 p.m. at the bar—the perfect time to come in from the beach and cool off from the heat. In the evening, the restaurant’s floor opens up for people to go out and dance! One Hot Mama’s has everything you need with delicious food, happy hour drinks, televisions to watch sports, and a space to make your own entertainment!
These are just a few of the outstanding options available to enjoy a great date night experience in Hilton Head, so don’t be shy and go have a blast!
