Lovebirds in London are lucky, considering the endless smorgasbord of date night possibilities across the city. Date night ideas in London are easy to come by, but choosing the very best can be a tough decision.
It needs to be fun with something to do or watch, to allow you to chat and learn about one another, and of course, to allow romance to blossom.
Here are our favourite ideas for a date night in London.
Go to a cabaret show

London is one of the best destinations in the world for live performances, and there’s nothing quite so fun and flirty as a cabaret show.
The London Cabaret Club is a popular establishment, but you can also check out the Midnight Lounge Bar & Restaurant, the Kit Kat Club, or The Phoenix Arts Club for more saucy options.
Take a bath

Perhaps a little too intimate for first dates, but perhaps perfectly intimate for new couples is the AIRE Ancient Baths.
This Covent Garden bath house is inspired by ancient traditions from the Romans, Greeks and Ottomans. From a simple soak in the hot baths to a couples massage or even the wine bath experience, this is a magical date night idea that will leave you feeling totally carefree and blissfully in love.
Do a London Treasure Hunt

For something a little more adventurous and outdoorsy, consider a London Treasure Hunt for your next date night.
There are multiple options to choose from, including a ghostly hunt, one that takes you through the streets of Mayfair, and one that will set you exploring Greenwich. No matter which you choose, you’ll get to spend your time together discovering more of the city and more of one another.
Try the dining experience at The Meat & Wine Co
The Meat & Wine Co is an exceptional new steak restaurant in Mayfair, where you’ll find African-inspired meals, a cocktail bar made for discovering together, and a romantic, vibrant atmosphere.
Start with an entrée to share for something delicious to whet your appetite, then move on to a stunning aged steak from our in-house dry ageing programme, or one of our premium skewers for something a little different.
Go back to sharing again with something sweet to finish, such as our richly indulgent chocolate and hazelnut fondant, or the moreish salted caramel tart.
Be sure to make a reservation to secure your space.
Grab a drink at the Sky Garden

The Sky Garden is London’s highest public garden, and if there’s one thing that pairs perfectly with beautiful views and a gorgeous date, that’s an excellent cocktail.
This restaurant and bar also often features live music, making it a fun date unlike any other.
Make a booking at the bar to either start the evening with a view and a tipple, or finish your night watching the sun go down at one of the most scenic bars in London.
