Things to Do for All Ages & Date Night

Mastermind Room Escape

Mastermind Room Escape has two locations in the St. Louis area, including downtown St. Louis and in St. Charles. This locally-owned business has various escape rooms, all of which can be enjoyed by everyone in your family or group. Even if you've played a specific room before, play again because the owners are always changing up the clues and making improvements. This attention to detail and quality customer service has made Mastermind Room Escape the #1 escape room in the area based on fan feedback on Trip Advisor and Google.

Special Note: The Christmas Holiday season is especially fun at Mastermind Room Escape because they have two holiday escape rooms. The Home Alone escape room and Elf escape room were inspired by the movies. The clues are challenging, and not everyone escapes, but everyone leaves with a smile on their face and joy in their hearts.

The holiday escape rooms at Mastermind Room Escape are a holiday tradition.

Things to Do for Date Night

In addition to Mastermind Room Ecape, here are our recommendations for things to do for your next date night.

St. Louis Are Museum

Let's face it, we all enjoyed the art museum when we were young, but too few of us enjoy art museums as adults. Date night is the perfect time to visit the art museum. It's peaceful, you can talk while enjoying exhibitions passing through town or something from the permanent collection.

Bailey's Chocolate Bar

Bailey's Chocolate Bar is an award-winning martini and dessert bar. Sounds too good to be true for date night? It's not. It's the perfect place to please your taste buds, enjoy a conversation and sip a martini.

Tower Grove Park

Tower Grove Park is a preserved Victoria Park. It's the perfect spot for a walk through wooded areas that are beautifully maintained. The park hosts regular performances that are always interesting and can't been seen anywhere else in the region. Download their interactive map to your phone to make sure you don't miss anything.

As you can tell, we're big fans of what we do at Mastermind Room Escape but we also enjoy sharing everything that the St. Louis area has in terms of things to do!
