With the holidays soon approaching, everyone wants to be on their best boujee behavior. Out come the fur (faux, of course) coats, the long red nails, the dark lipsticks, and the thigh high boots. Obviously, the best occasion to get extra boujee for, asides from Christmas and New Years, duh, is going on a date. Or if you don't have anyone to go on a date with, bring your BFFs!
Whether it's with your bae or your best friend, dates during the holidays are just extra romantic for some reason. Maybe it's the spirit in the air or the mistletoes all over the place but whatever the case, here's a list of some of the boujee-ist things you can do in Ottawa:
Have dinner at E18hteen
Where: 18 York St.
Type: Canadian cuisine
If you've got the budget for this place then it is definitely a spot you want to check out.Time to bring out your best faux fur coat and your nicest thigh high boots for your special date. Definitely on the boujee checklist.
Go to Nordik Spa-Nature
Where: 16 Chemin Nordik
Definitely not sure what could be more boujee than this! You'll feel so extra and fancy at this luxurious spa! Additionally, it's super common to go in the colder months especially because it's just so relaxing and nice; almost makes you forget about your winter blues.
Go skating on Parliament Hill
Where: Wellington St.
Yea, you read that right. If you didn't know before, now you do! The city is installing a massive ice rink on Parliament Hill for more 150th anniversary celebrations. It opens mid-December and it's definitely bound to be a boujee AF date spot.
Grab some fondue at Cacao 70
Where: Various locations
I don't know why but going to Cacao 70 just feels so boujee. Maybe it's because it just feels so fancy, who knows, but a cup of hot cocoa combined with a freshly made crepe sounds amazingly delish during a holiday date!
Have dinner on Andaz' rooftop restaurant
Where: 325 Dalhousie St.
Type: Fine cuisine
Imagine overlooking the city covered in snow while you dine on some amazing food. Honestly, what could be more bad and boujee than that? Especially having your date and a glass of wine in front of you! Amazing.
Dine at Social
Where: 537 Sussex Dr.
Type: Fine cuisine
Time to get social! No pun intended. However, this place does turn into a lounge so if you and your date are old at heart, you don't have to party all night long. Plus you can let your boujee AF personality shine through at this restaurant.
Watch a holiday movie in the VIP cinema
Where: 325 Marché Way #107
I mean a glass of wine paired with a Christmas movie and your date sounds like a dream, right? You can also get some dope food that is brought out to you by a server! So boujee but so cute.
Honestly, although skiing is pretty carefree, it is pretty expensive so going to a ski hill for a date does seem quite boujee. You might not get to dress all the way up but you'll have fun and you can still wear a cute snowsuit.
Stay at a "Ready-to-Camp" campsite in Gatineau Park
This is obviously really boujee because it's not actually camping but it still falls under the umbrella term! The closest you'll get to feeling like you're in the wilderness is the lack of cell reception but at least you get to bond with whoever you're with! Gatineau Park offers 4 season tents, yurts, and cabins so depending on how boujee you are, you might want to opt for the cabin!
Spend a night out at Common
Where: 380 Elgin St.
Common is definitely super boujee and the people that go there are extra AF. This isn't anything bad because the vibes are still dope meaning you and your boo will have a great time. Just make sure to look boujee and create a budget because drinks are definitely pricey.
Just go on a vacay!
I mean, you'll definitely need to be comfortable with whoever you're with so it should probably be someone who's more than just a Tinder date but at least you'll have a blast annnd feel boujee. This is like the ultimate Christmas present and I'd recommend somewhere in the tropics!
