7 Date Ideas In Abuja (On A Budget)

Abuja is an expensive city! Relationships can be difficult to maintain if you enjoy being on dates and cannot afford them. These are some ideas on what to do if you are in this position:

Park For Picnics

What more could you need than bread and wine? You can both agree to bring something specific, or meet at any store and shop for what you need together.

Amusement Park

You’ll have plenty of fun things to do and many things to talk about based on what happens there.

Workout/Dance/Yoga Class

Learning a new exercise together can be fun and intriguing. It might test your level of fitness, flexibility or even ability to learn on the spot. But what makes this great is the fact that you get to go through the process of learning it together. Learning something together will build a strong bond.


There are a lot of affordable places to eat and drink. If you cannot fit the trendy restaurants in your budget, there are places to eat local dishes in Abuja like Iya Oyo in Wuye or Amala Place in Wuse. There are also places to enjoy a drink or two. If you like cocktails, the best place to get one is Keje Grills in City Park, Wuse 2. Beers and other alcoholic beverages can be gotten from places like Beer Barn or many gardens in different areas of the city.

Take a Tour

Take a tour of the city. Visit Yar’adua Centre, the National Library, Park and Zoo, Usuma Dam, Arts and Crafts Village.

Free Events

This is a great way to spend time together. Seek out a free outdoor concert, a play, a seminar or any networking events. They can be found with just a google search.

Stay At Home

Staying at home when you cannot afford to go out doesn’t have to be a bore. Here are some activities you can enjoy at home.

Cook: Spend time together in the kitchen. This can be a fun and intimate experience. Try not to burn the food though.

Watch Something: Pick a show that neither of you has seen, and watch a few more episodes than you’ll usually do.

Play Board or Video Games: Game night is a great way to include the other person in your hobby so that they can have an appreciation for something that you like. Just get something to eat and let the games begin!

Give Each Other Massages: Everyone likes to be pampered. Create a spa-type atmosphere with a massage table and scented oils and give each other a massage.
