Beyoncé’s Perfect Romantic Evening Includes Ambient Lighting, A Home Cooked Meal, and Vintage Movies

There isn’t much that’s known about Beyoncé’s personal life, especially her relationship with Jay-Z. But over the years, the powerhouse singer has given fans a little insight into her love life during interviews and on social media.

Back in 2006, the singer opened up about her idea of the perfect romantic evening — and surprisingly, it doesn’t include anything over-the-top.

Beyoncé once detailed her favorite romantic evening

When she’s on stage, Beyoncé is the bold, fearless, and sexy Sasha Fierce who brings the house down with her stunning vocals and incredible dance moves.

But in real life, Beyoncé is nothing like her famous alter ego. Instead, she’s a quiet and demure individual who likes to enjoy her downtime basking in some peace and quiet at home.

One way she does this is by sitting back and relishing in a few simple pleasures, which just so happens to be the Queen Bey’s idea of the perfect romantic evening.

“Light some candles, have a good meal, and watch an old movie,” she told Cosmopolitan in 2006. “I don’t cook much, but I’m good at spaghetti and sandwiches. I know they’re easy, but they’re my specialty.”

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have made many romantic nights together

Though Beyoncé enjoys having romantic evenings inside her home, she has had plenty of date nights out on the town with her husband Jay-Z over the years.

Often times, the couple chooses a date, like the front row at a sporting event or dinner at a romantic restaurant. But seeing as they are two of the most famous celebrities in the world, Bey and Jay are often accompanied by their team of bodyguards whenever they step out.

But eating dinner and attending sporting events together aren’t the only dates the powerhouse couple has gone on.

When they’ve gotten the chance to take a break from work, the Carters have taken luxurious vacations together, sometimes as a family with their kids, and other times by themselves.

There have even been moments when the couple has snuck away together while on family vacations to enjoy a romantic evening for just the two of them.

For instance, in 2016, they had a romantic date night in Paris under the Eiffel Tower after spending the day in the City of Lights with their oldest daughter, Blue Ivy Carter.

Other times, the power couple have gotten glammed up and attended A-list events like the Academy Awards, the Grammys, and President Obama’s inauguration.

Nowadays, Beyoncé and Jay-Z aren’t going out as much due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. However, they were spotted having a romantic date night at an Italian restaurant in New York City back in September 2020. 

Though that was the last date night we’ve seen the pair on, we’re sure that Bey and Jay are still enjoying romantic evenings together — just in the comfort of their own home!
