YOUR DATE NIGHT AT METROPOLIS
Few can say that everything needed for a perfect date night exists within their home, but when you live at Metropolis, the romantic necessities come included. Featuring an array of date night worthy options, narrowing down to a select few may come as a challenge. With dinner being the main event, it is only right to start the night in traditional fashion. Welcome your special guest to the aroma of a delightful, home-cooked meal made with ease thanks to integrated Miele & Bosch appliances. Follow up dinner knowing that the night has only just begun, with a round of mini-golf on the putting green, or a game of pool in the Billiards Room. Let your competitive sides shine before it’s time to unwind. Will you choose to cuddle up in the theater room or opt for swimwear to splash in under the stars? There is no wrong way to date night when you live at Metropolis. For the ultimate nightcap situation be sure to make your way fireside with a blanket and bubby for two.
