We all understand the pressure of organising date activities that will make just the right kind of impression. Here are three date nights that will help you find the perfect setting to let romance blossom.
See a West End musical
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.
Laugh at comedy in Bloomsbury
Enjoy cabaret in Soho
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.
Olives Restaurant & Bar
An Italian restaurant and bar at The Bailey's Hotel London, on Gloucester Road, Olives has held an AA rosette for the past six years. The menu showcases classic Italian dishes from across the boot. A traditional afternoon tea also features, as well as generous happy hours on beers, wines and a short selection of cocktails. Keep an eye out for seasonal menus, too.
Venue says: “Join us daily for happy hour from 5-7.30pm with special prices on house wine, beers, spirits and classic and seasonal cocktails!”
