Night of Franks: Frank Lloyd Wright/Frank Sinatra

by: futrsenator | Classy Date, Romantic Date

This is no ordinary dinner and movie date. This date is full of culture and history.

The Night of Franks starts off at an authentic Italian Restaurant called Ristorante Giuseppe. The atmosphere will get the night started in the right direction, and the food is outstanding.

From there, the night heads to Frank Lloyd Wright's Taliesin West in North Scottsdale. Home to an architectural school for part of the year, this 55,000 square foot house is one of Phoenix's best kept secrets in terms of date spots. On this twilight tour you'll have the unusual opportunity to view Wright's desert masterpiece in a nighttime setting. Over looking Phoenix, the "desert masonry structures lighted from within appear as sculptures, the fire-breathing dragon is lit, and the lights from the valley below create a dramatic, romantic setting". The tour includes everything on the Insights Tour plus light refreshments.

After the two hour tour at Taliesin, the date then heads south to the Merc Bar. The Merc is a chill type lounge bar tucked away across the street from Biltmore Fashion. Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack can often be heard pumping through the speakers. This is a great place to grab a few drinks and chill at the end of a romantic date.

This sounds like a really great date. I love that dinner is followed by a partly outdoor walking event in the dark. Might want to remind the gals to not wear high heels for this one. But the bar at the end sounds like the perfect place to talk about the tour and other things. Wonderful date. I'm going to share it with my next date!
