4 Reasons MP Social is a Lovely Date Night Out for Lansing Couples

When MP Social opened it’s doors I was hopeful that the real experience would live up to its awesome Instagram presence. Because – one of the biggest questions for most couples before going on a date is:

“Where should we go?”

We either stick with what we know or when we do venture out – we want to make sure we will actually enjoy it. After-all, date nights are sacred in this #momlife and #dadlife. Am I right?

I can tell you first hand – you’ll enjoy MP Social!

MP Social is More than Food and Drinks – It’s an Experience

If I’m honest, my desire to be back spending cool nights sitting on the waterfront in my second home, Portland, OR, could not be quenched here in Lansing – UNTIL NOW.

When you walk into MP Social you’ll be greeted with a fresh clean design and beautiful view of Downtown Lansing’s riverfront. Choose the patio in the summer, and forget about the winter’s cold when you sit in their aesthetically calming lobby and meal seating sections.

MPSocial’s design forward bar/restaurant + gorgeous, delicious food and drink combo is something I’ve been longing to experience in Lansing and they do not disappoint. You’ll leave full of fantastic food having had a great night out in a beautiful atmosphere.

You and your boo are up for a date night supreme!

Lansing’s First Bar/Restaurant Inside of an Apartment Lobby

It’s fair to say that our city has dramatically changed in the last couple of years. More restaurants are popping up, we have a great coffee scene, and genius graffiti artists are gracing our streets with more and more breathtaking art.  One amazing Lansing addition is the first bar/restaurant in the lobby of an apartment building.

MPSocial Front Entrance Lansing Downtown Riverfront

MP Social is the first in Lansing to have a social place to gather in an apartment building – and it’s open to all! This gem is tucked away in the middle of the Marketplace with a walk up entrance from the riverfront trail.

Depending on the weather or how well you’re bundled up, it’s a great place to take a walk before or after dining with your honey.

MP Social ‘Marches to their Own Beet

They marched into Lansing’s Downtown with a bang! Within their first 6 weeks of being open, MP Social was voted the people’s choice for best Margarita! Their “March to your own Beet” Margarita won among 12 other area bars and restaurants where over 700 people voted!

Their drink menu is fun and refreshing with vibrant colors and textures. With these options, a date night out is spiced up automatically.

Let me know what you end up trying!

Intimate Setting in Downtown Lansing’s Night Life

One of my most adored aspects of MPSocial is their intimate seating settings. If you’re looking to get some time with your sweetie, their seating is intentionally placed for special date nights and community gatherings (They can host parties from 10 to 75 people!).

Their space is set up for people to connect and spend quality time together – something so desperately needed in our fast paced world.

As a mom of two boys, I love the thought of time with my man in a cozy and intentional “us time” atmosphere. Since it’s the perfect place to do just that – I’m so excited to give one couple this fabulous date night out!
