J Sheekey Oyster Bar

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

There's hardly a more obvious 'date' dinner than oysters, but clichés are clichéd for a reason, and J Sheekey is definitely the place to be predictable. The fruits de mer platter is highly recommended and will take you a while to get through, giving plenty of time for flirting.

American Bar at The Savoy

  • Rated as: 4/5

A drink in The Savoy's sumptuous American Bar will really lend some extra glamour to your evening. Its iconic interior and irresistible cocktails are so classic they could sweep you into Cary Grant-level-romance territory.

Lucky Pig

  • Rated as: 3/5

Lucky indeed if you've made it this far into your date, so it's time for somewhere really special. This charming speakeasy-themed cocktail bar is hidden away in an unassuming Fitzrovia back street, with only a string of fairy lights to indicate its presence.

Experimental Cocktail Club

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Price band: 3/4

Don't be fooled by the entrance: the scruffy front door on Gerrard Street is merely the portal to a beatutifully decorated bar serving sensational cocktails. The Experimental Cocktail Club has managed to retain just enough of a clandestine edge to make it an especially impressive date location.

  1. 13A Gerrard Street, W1D 5PS

  • Rated as: 4/5

His name is synonymous with high quality cooking, and Mark Hix's restaurant in Soho is a seriously classy place to eat. Chic decor and relaxed atmosphere will hopefully help to make you chic and relaxed enough to really get to know each other.
