Date night

Plan the perfect romantic evening


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

J Sheekey Oyster Bar

5 out of 5 stars
Restaurants British Covent Garden
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

4 out of 5 stars
Bars and pubs Hotel bars Strand
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.

Laugh at comedy in Bloomsbury

Honey & Co

4 out of 5 stars
Restaurants Middle Eastern Warren Street
This middle-eastern restaurant closes early, but this won't trouble your pre-theatre meal from their exceptional menu.

Bloomsbury Theatre

Theatre Off-West End Bloomsbury
When it's not staging UCL's student productions, the stage at The Bloomsbury is home to some of the country's best comedy. Check out what's coming up - there's bound to be something that will impress.

Lucky Pig

3 out of 5 stars
Bars and pubs Fitzrovia
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.

Enjoy cabaret in Soho

Madame JoJos

Nightlife Cabaret and burlesque Soho
Part of Paul Raymond's extensive Soho empire, this late-night cabaret/burlesque/drag/DJ club and live music venue has a long and colourful history. Have a peek at some cabaret for a wide-eyed evening.

Experimental Cocktail Club

4 out of 5 stars
Bars and pubs Cocktail bars Chinatown
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.


4 out of 5 stars
Restaurants British Soho
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.
