With great nightlife and plenty of fun attractions, finding and meeting cougars in Omaha has never been so easy.
The secret is knowing the perfect place to hang out. If you think cougar bars are your only option, think again. The Countryside Village will surprise you, and even Midtown can be a gold mine of beautiful and eligible cougars.
The Best Places to Find Cougars in Omaha
Omaha has some of the best and most popular bars in Nebraska to meet attractive cougars. But first, we want to kickstart this guide with a few venues for the lazy boys reading. We know some of our readers may not have the time to dive through a long 4k-word guide just to figure out where to spend the night
So we chopped up our huge list of cougars bars into two. The first, aka this one, will include our four most favorite venues and dating apps that are guaranteed to have attractive Omaha cougars in them. This list is exclusive to those who don't have time to roam around the city or are just plain lazy.
The second list includes a wider selection of cool places for meeting those hot Omaha cougars. More on that later, but first let's start with our favorite places for meeting cougars in Omaha:
Green Onion is one of the many bars popular among Omaha cougars
Green Onion is a great little bar that cougars just love. Expect a professional crowd of cougars to come here for post-work drinks with their girlfriends or colleagues. The atmosphere is cozy and the drinks are strong, so it’s easy to have a great night here.
Hang out here long enough and you are sure to spot cougars. Be charming but not too eager, and dress well. If you play your cards right you could do very well here.
AFF is the MOST reliable way for guys to meet cougars who just want something casual or physical (try it free)
Meeting a new cougar in Omaha and getting to know her is a fantastic experience. However, we don't always have the time or energy for a relationship, but we still have needs we want to fulfill. That's where AFF (with its great free trial) comes in handy.
We have tried out just about every app and site out there that promises to help you find someone who is looking for some fun in the bedroom. In our experience, this is the only app that is worth trying for 90% of guys. We have seen the best success actually meeting up with women using it and wasted the least amount of time. Almost all of the women using it don’t just want attention and a quick ego boost, they are looking for a guy to take them home (in our experience).
We've tried a lot of different options and this has been the unbeatable way to meet cougars to take home fast!
When we want to meet an Omaha cougar, we browse through AFF's 60 million-plus active members. We've found that lots of single women over 35 go on AFF to find quick flings. They're usually the ones who have given up on Tinder at this point.
If you want to improve your chances, spend time in some of the spots we include on our list here, but also spend a little time online. It's a one-two punch that can be really powerful if you want to meet a lot of women fast. Check out AFF and see the options you didn't even know you had.
One of the top Omaha cougar dating apps is eHarmony if you want great results (try it now)
We love a good cougar bar as much as the next guy. But there are times when you just want to hang out at home while meeting hot older women. There are also a lot of Omaha cougars who just don't spend any time in bars and clubs any longer. eHarmony (which has a great trial) really helped us out.
While there may be a ton of apps out there, none of them are as good as eHarmony when it comes to helping you meet single cougars. We've spent a lot of time rating and ranking over 100 different cougar dating sites and apps and this is what we really like about it:
They just have the most Omaha cougars using it
While their 33,000,000 plus membership doesn't make eHarmony the biggest site around, in our experience they have BY FAR the most real cougars using it. We're talking about attractive, single women over 35 who are interested in dating both younger and older men.
Most women who use eHarmony are ACTUAL COUGARS. You won't find that anywhere else!
If you've tried to use more general dating sites in the past you know how hard it can be to find a real cougar. You have to sift through hundreds of profiles and MAYBE get lucky and find one.
It saves a ton of time and money
Spending any amount of time in a bar is expensive and you never know if any attractive cougars will even show up. If you want to make the most of your time and money a quality dating site or app is the best way to go.
You have to change your approach to change your results!
You shouldn't completely stop going out but being able to meet women 24/7 regardless of where you are is extremely powerful!
Do yourself a favor and give eHarmony's trial a shot here. It's easy to get set up and it is the best option for making a big improvement in your dating life that we've found. Try it!
The Havana Garage - because cougars in Omaha can be bookworms too!
This awesome joint is a favorite among bookish and well-read cougars. If that’s the kind of Omaha cougar you want to meet, make sure to show up and be ready to talk about your favorite books and literary figures. Aside from the excellent choices of drinks, there’s an overall great vibe that’s perfect for laughter and conversation.
Start the night with their tequila, and then maybe you can switch to their Bolivar, a stronger but fruitier drink. It’s a perfect lady's drink that will make her feel more relaxed.
The Havana Garage is easy to find at Countryside Village. And you’ll enjoy its retro and intimate atmosphere because it feels cozy without being too claustrophobic. You may spot photos of literary figures that adorn one wall, so make sure to use those in your pickup lines or to jumpstart your conversations.
Tom Omaha Cougar Bars and Cougar Clubs
It took us time to come up with a list of the best cougars bars in Omaha. We had to filter through a long list of average bars and C-class lounges just to come up with this list. The venues here are the creme de la creme when it comes to meeting cougars.
The venues below may not match those in LA or New York, but they're loaded with cool local cougars. So count on us, we won't con you into hitting an overrated place and waste your time.
Without further ado, these are our top venues for meeting single cougars in Omaha:

Be calm, confident, fun, and playful. Don't spill the beans too early or let her figure you out. That's boring. Leave a room for her to fill in the info.
Be more assertive, take the lead, and don't be afraid to tease her, but without being insulting. She will be challenging so the earlier you level up with her cockiness the faster you'll connect.

The Guide to Cougar Dating in Omaha
Now that we fixed you with those Omaha cougars and showed you where to meet them, it's time to tell you where to take them out on dates.
Like I said earlier, cougars are experienced and have been with several men before, so they will be clear about what they want in a man. This doesn't mean every cougar will be after you for a relationship. Many cougars will be in it just for a quickie. However, the big difference between cougars and younger women is that cougars are vocal about what they want from a man.
She'll make sure you understand what she wants, whether it's a ring or just a fling. That's why your first date with a cougar should match those goals or you'll risk being canceled out pretty early. You either show her you're both on the same wave or expect to be ghosted after the date.
It all starts with where to take her...
If you just want to keep it casual take her to a lounge
If your ideal date ends in your bedroom then cut back on restaurants, movies, and concerts and opt for a lounge. You want a cool, romantic place where you can build comfort and attraction with your cougars then move together to your place.
These are our favorite bars and lounges for dating Omaha cougars. Pick the nearest one to your place and try it out:
- 1912 Benson - 6201 Maple St
- Mr. Toad - 1002 Howard St
- Nosh Wine Lounge - 1006 Dodge St
- The Boiler Room - 1110 Jones St
- Blatt Beer & Table - 610 N 12th St
- The Drover - 2121 S 73rd St
- Proof - 120 S 31st Ave #5105
If you're more serious about dating her try a comedy club, piano bar, or fun activity
Share a romantic activity with her if she doesn't look like she can sleep with you on a first date, or if she can't spend the night with you for any reason - like work or babysitting. Anything to lower her guards is cool, a piano bar, comedy club, or even a picnic will work. Just make sure you listen more and speak less.
Here are some of the best activities for dating Omaha cougars:
- Heartland of America Park - 800 Douglas St
- Funny Bone - 17305 Davenport St
- The Omaha Lounge - 666 N 114th St

- Joslyn Art Museum - 2200 Dodge St
- West Lanes Bowling Center - 151 N 72nd St
- Maplewood Lanes - 3030 N 101st St
If she's very old school you can always do a dinner date (but that isn't recommended)
Some women are into fine dining, you can't take that out of them. I don't like them and I hate talking to people while chewing. But if that's the only option you have, then it's better than nothing.
