Whether you’re celebrating your first or fiftieth date, or revelling in the single life, we’ve put together a list of venue and outfit ideas to help you spend this Valentine’s Day – and any date night for that matter – in style.
Whether you're with a loved one or your best friend, the British Film Institute’s independent cinema on London's Southbank is the perfect choice for a film experience with a difference. They’ve got seven screenings to choose from this Valentine's Day, including cult favourites Casablanca and Moulin Rouge. Book now to avoid missing out.
For those that like the finer things in life, it has to be a dinner date at London’s Bob Bob Ricard. This is one of Soho’s most iconic eateries, mainly for the ‘Press for Champagne’ button at every booth (no surprises then that it’s said to pour more fizz than any other restaurant in the UK.) Think glam, gilded décor and a delicious menu to match it.
For the couple that likes to sweat together – head straight to Heartcore. Founder Jess Schuring’s aim is to make clients fall in love with themselves through fitness; go with your partner and you might just love them a little more, too. Whatever your workout, there’s a class for it and with studios all over London, there’s really no excuse. Go on; try a date with a difference.
For those who would rather forget this calendar event and party with friends, head straight to London’s biggest arts festival in Waterloo. Celebrating its sixth year running, Vault Festival will leave you spoilt for choice when it comes to the capitals best rising talent. From theatre and comedy to circus shows and late-night parties including The Bleeding Heart Ball, you’ll soon forget you’re not there with a ‘significant other’ – and you never know, you might just meet them there.
