    do you like/ would you like

    A: Do you like to go out this evening?
    B: I'm afraid I haven't got any money.

    is this sentence correct or does it need replacing with would you like to go out?

    Thanks in advance:)

    Would you like to go out this evening? - expresses a polite invitation to go out.

    Re: do you like/ would you like

    But would the sentence be completely incorrect if we used do you like to go out ?

    Re: do you like/ would you like

    Yes, it is correct to say:

    Do you like going out / to go out?

    However, the meaning of this question differs from that of 'would you like going out/ to go out?'
    Above, it is simply a question asking if you enjoy going out.
