Date night in Jackson, Mississippi

Mississippi’s capital city of Jackson is hopping, with a huge number of amazing restaurants to choose from when date night comes around. Our beautiful little city brings in singles from around the country, between our affordable cost of living and great job market. Whether you are new in town or you have lived here all your life, here are three new suggestions for restaurants you might not have tried yet.

Char (I55 North)

Probably the best steakhouse in Mississippi, Char pairs an upscale atmosphere with amazing steaks and a menu that includes lots of fresh new takes on Gulf Coast favorites like gumbo and cheddar grits. Delicious!

Babalu Tacos and Tapas (Duling Ave)

A tapas bar is a great choice for date night. So many fun things to try and dishes to share! Babalu’s lively, casual atmosphere will make this a fun date to remember. They also have a lot of vegan and vegetarian options – perfect for diners with food restrictions.

Parlor Market (W Capitol St)

This classy, cutting edge restaurant features southern fare with a modern twist. With an extensive beer, wine, and cocktail list, Parlor Market is a great choice for date night. Parking can be tough downtown, so be sure to take advantage of their free valet service.
