Cougars go to Park Ultra Lounge to dance the night away
Out of the dance clubs in Sacramento, this is one of the most well-rounded in terms of music. Park Ultra Lounge plays EDM, gothic, electro and even 80s favorites, making it a favorite of Sacramento cougars. Because it has lots of tables, you should have no problem getting a spot.

eHarmony is the way to meet cougars for relationships if you want results (try it free)
We love a good Sacramento 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 Sacramento cougars who just don't spend any time in bars and clubs any longer. eHarmony really helped us out, especially when it comes to finding something long-term.
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 who want something serious. 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 cougars using it to find a potential boyfriend
In our experience, eHarmony has 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.
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, let alone one who wants something long-term. 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 a shot. 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!
Step up the romance at 58 Degrees and Holding Co.
With its romantic ambiance, this could be the right place for you to find your date. Conveniently, you don’t have to dress to the nines as most patrons come here in casual attire.
Check out their bestsellers like baked chicken, Greek salad, and spicy mac ‘n’ cheese. They also have an extensive wine and beer selection.
The more chill cougars go here to knock back a few beers and unwind. They usually come in groups, so you can take your pick. When they see a stud like you looking their way, it’s only a matter of time before they invite you to sit with them!

Sacramento has a cool nightlife. Yet, some of these venues are huge time-wasters for men looking for hooking up with cougars. Young chicks are an eery place that has a bouncer, but cougars don't do that. You might be surprised but the majority of our hot ladies hang out at nearby lounges and bars.
The keywords here are:
Sophistication and distance
They want venues that are classy but not far away from home. Look at venues that look classy and famous within a specific suburb. Most likely you'll find hot Sacramento cougars there.
However, you should bring a car along. Bar crawling in the suburbs is exhausting and may cost some money, so prepare yourself for some driving time.
Meet Cougars in Sacramento During the Day
The time cougars spend in gyms, cafes, grocery stores, yoga classes, and malls is way more than the few hours they spent clubbing.
Guys who are good with women know that approaching them in the morning is way easier, and less expensive than at night. You won't see other better-looking men showering her with drinks and awful pickup lines, and you will save a lot of money on drinks. And time too.

The Guide to Dating Cougars in Sacramento
For many guys who've never been with a cougar before, the experience is different. From picking her up to getting intimate together, she's kinda different from those sorority girls you've been with. They're all women, but cougars often cut to the point, which can be scary to some men.
Cougars are very specific about what they want. She will cancel you right away if she doesn't like you or if she thinks your goals don't match together. That's way is critical that your first date together communicates your goals clearly.
If you just want to keep it casual take her to a lounge
If all you want is casual then why waste time. Pick a cool nearby bar and go nuts. Have fun, build comfort and intimacy, tease her, share stories, and be assertive. Once you're done, bounce her to another venue close to your place then invite her over. If she likes you, she'll jump on board, and the rest will go down to your bedroom skills.
These are our favorite lounges for dating cougars in Sacramento:
- The Torch Club - 904 15th St
- Seasons 52 - 1689 Arden Way Suite 1065

- The Waterboy - 2000 Capitol Ave
- Pre Flite Lounge - 1011 10th St
- Revival - 500 J St
- Amourath Patio - 1209 L St
If you're more serious about dating her try a fun activity instead
She doesn't like someone who'd sleep with you on a first date? No problem. If she needs more time, or if she's serious about dating you, why not share a cool experience together that doesn't including showing her your mattress.
This will lower her guards and help both of you decide on the next step, be it move forward or stop dating each other.
