TOP 10 LONDON DATE NIGHT SPOTS

When it comes to date nights, London has definitely got some of the best spots in the UK. It's now getting to that time of year where you want to spend some special time with loved ones, especially in this cold. So for this weeks Top10Tuesday, I have put together the top 10 date night spots in the UK that you should be visiting.


Whether you are going here with bae, solo or on an intimate night out with your friend(s), you're sure to find some gems in London.




1. ODEON Luxe


There's going to the cinema and then there's really going to the cinema. Out of the two, I choose the latter and I'll tell you why.


Going to the cinema is usually a good way to stay entertained cheaply and cheerfully. There are plenty of cinemas in London that will allow you to go and watch a movie for about £5 per ticket, however, if you're looking for a little more luxury and comfort, then I'd recommend heading to ODEAN Luxe in Swiss Cottage.


It's not as crowded as a normal cinema and the seats are certainly a lot more comfortable. You will be able to recline on your sofa chair while watching a movie that's out. This cinema also allows you to snuggle up and get comfy with your date for the night before ordering some cocktails, deserts and popcorn that'll come in a glass bowl as opposed to cardboard.


Tip: They offer student deals too, so bring along your student ID to make some cheeky savings on this luxury experience.


Location: 96 Finchley Rd, Swiss Cottage, London NW3 5EL

Where to book: Book here

Price: £17.75 per ticket (regardless of age)

2. Sushi Samba


If you want spectacular 360 views over London City, then head to the 38th and 39th floor of 110 Bishopsgate where you will find SUSHISAMBA.


This is a great place to get a little tipsy with your date and enjoy tastes of Japan, Peru and Brazil. Sushisamba is known for its lively ambience, delicious food and outdoor seating area with great views.


The dress code is smart casual, so it makes for the perfect date night spot when out in London.


Tip: Sushi Samba is located in the same building as Duck & Waffle, so if you want..why not head to duck and waffle first for some food, then head to SUSHISAMBA after for some drinks.

3. Hakkasan


In London, there are many top-end restaurants, but Hakkasan is certainly one of the most popular.


This is an upscale restaurant located right in the heart of Mayfair, serving spectacular Chinese food. No really, the food is seriously delicious.


The restaurant is dimly lit with amazing decor. Guests can choose between splashing at the bar on some cocktails or dining like billionaires on the ground floor.

4. Syon Lounge


Syon Lounge is not exactly in London, but I threw it in there anyway. This is an upscale rooftop shisha lounge and pan -Asian restaurant.


The first time I visited Syon Lounge, I ran into Anthony Joshua who was also heading into Syon Lounge. Immediately, I knew that this was no ordinary lounge that I was heading into.


While it is ok to dress down a little when visiting the popular lounge, it is also a great spot to go to all dressed up for a date night or dinner party.

5. BOUNCE


If you want to get a little active for date night (pause), then I recommend heading over to BOUNCE. This is a unique bar and table tennis joint.


You're probably thinking "wth?", but yes this is a real gem in London. Enjoy the bar setting and order your finest cocktails, or head over to the table tennis section where you can have a very fun game of table tennis.


This is a great way to bond with your date and you can definitely class it as an activity. It gets a little heated in that game if you're the competitive type, but it's all fun and laughs

by the end of the game.


Tip: It'a very important to book a slot on the ping pong table before you arrive, or else you could be waiting around for a while.

You will sit at a table and have your food cooked directly in front of you. This lively restaurant has great vibes and staff with great attitudes. You're sure to crack a smile and maybe even a laugh as the chef performs tricks while he cooks the food.
