WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- The Wharf is opening on DC’s Southwest waterfront today and we figure it might just be the perfect place for a date. The mile long strip is transforming South West into a beautiful riverfront city with three brand new music venues, 4 public piers and over 20 restaurants and bars.
Cruising on the water
You and bae can have a romantic ride in a water taxi at The Wharf’s transit pier. Catch a ride to Alexandria or Georgetown or board one of the dining cruises for a unique experience exploring DC from the Potomac. Adults can take a ride roundtrip starting at $18 and children’s tickets start at around $12 if you want to take the whole family. You can also put your relationship’s balance to the test by renting a tandem kayak!
Get down at the Anthem
The company behind the 9:30 Club just carved out the coolest new spot in the music scene: The Anthem. In what used to be a warehouse, you’ll never forget your date here with seven wet bars, one coffee bar and a variety of munchies to keep you going. Its opening Thursday night with a sold out Foo Fighters performance but you can still go “hey, hey, hey, hey, hey” at Phoenix (who’s performing next week) or “get a little bit closer” with Tegan and Sarah. Bon Iver and Lorde will also be there this year.
