Online Dating for New Orleans Singles

by eharmony Editorial Team - July 28, 2020

Those of us who live here and really know New Orleans will argue that the Crescent City is the most unique city in America. Sure, the Vieux Carre has some pretty cool stuff, but it’s teeming with tourists, and most of us would rather enjoy our beignets and café au lait in peace down on Canal Street than elbow our way into Café du Monde. Whether you’d rather be challenging Lake P. for a delicious fish dinner, partying at Club Ampersand, or tailgating before a Saints game, there is someone out there waiting to enjoy those experiences with you. Meeting that special someone begins with online dating in New Orleans.

New Orleans Date Ideas

Singles in New Orleans use eharmony to connect with compatible companions to share their activities and adventures. When it comes to local dating in New Orleans, date ideas are as widely varied as the people who share them; the important thing is to plan ahead with some creativity, because this is where you begin building a lifetime of memories together.

Great Date Recommendations

Divine Dinner – Head to Mid-City and Mandina’s Restaurant for a laid-back environment, generous drinks, and a menu as unique as New Orleans itself. From perfect preparations of traditional Creole food, fresh-caught fish – the trout almandine is succulent, buttery, and smothered in toasted almond crunchiness, juicy steaks and chops, and an assortment of Italian food staples, done with Creole flair. It’s comfort food at its finest!

An Evening at the Cat – The Spotted Cat Music Club lights up the Fauborg Marigny nightly with some of the best local jazz, klezmer, blues, and funk music in New Orleans. If you get there early enough, you’ll get seats, though you may want to get up and dance instead! Come prepared: the Cat doesn’t serve food, though there are plenty of good restaurants nearby, and the bar is cash-only. If music is your thing, the Cat will leave you captivated.

Pat a Penguin – Enjoy a short trip on the Canal Street Ferry to visit the Audubon Institute. The zoo, aquarium, and insectarium have some special “backstage” programs, including a “Penguin Pass,” at the aquarium, which gets you a behind-the-scenes tour, and the opportunity to actually pat a penguin! These are very talented penguins, and they’ll make a painting during your visit, which you get to take home.
