With its primary focus on location, Happn dating app is winning over the audience at such a pace that should definitely make all the competitors worried.

While the rest of dating apps might match you with someone living far away, Happn gives you a second chance with a person you might have seen in real life but didn’t have a chance to say hi. Which is great news as you can bring dating back to real life immediately.

Here are a few ideas for your first date in Amsterdam. Get inspired!

1. Go back to where you first met

If you found your date through Happn, you’re lucky as the two of you already have a first date spot. Whether it’s a simple coffee house or a sophisticated restaurant, just go to the place where you crossed paths with each other for the first time – you both obviously like it!

2. Take a look at the city from above

Another recipe for a good date is dining with a view. Head to A’DAM Tower and take a ride on the highest swing in Europe. Pay a visit to SkyLounge or Canvas in Volkshotel. Stop by Blue Amsterdam and watch the sun go down over the rooftops of Amsterdam.

3. Make your first night out magical

Fond of magic? Try the Amsterdam Magic Show – the first and only English language magic and comedy show in the Dutch capital. Entry includes a glass of prosecco, close-up magic, a stage show and an after party. Welcome to the wonderland where everything is possible!

4. Hold hands in the dark of the cinema

Cinema is another great Happn dating spot, especially since Amsterdam has so many of them. For such an occasion, we’d recommend choosing small and cozy arthouse cinemas like De FilmHallen, Het Ketelhuis (has a screening room for two!) or The Movies, which is the oldest movie theater in town.

5. Enjoy a “blind” date

Want to impress your date even more? Try dining in the dark at Ctaste! Remove all the distractions and enjoy your meal as you have never done before. Guided and served by blind (or partially-sighted) waiters, you’ll learn how to use all your senses to reveal the taste of food.

So, that was our pick of Happn dating spots in Amsterdam. Feel free to use our ideas, as well as add something of your own to the list.
