The 10 Best Date Venues to Try in London


If your idea of a good date in London is a quick drink at the local you may need to think again (or forever remain single!). Here at Mutual Attraction, London’s top bespoke matchmaking service, we personally match make and introduce hundreds of couples each week and along the way we have learnt a thing or two about what makes for a good date.

Life is precious so why not get out there and do something fun and exciting and impress your date at the same time. We asked our members where their favourite dates in London took place and we’ve rounded up the best of the best to share with you.

Here’s a rundown of our top ten date venues in London and why we think they are perfect for a date.

1. London Cru Urban Winery

London Cru is central London’s first winery. From tours of the winery to wine tasting classes there will be more than enough things to going on to keep the conversation flowing. And if it doesn’t flow? You’re in a winery!

2. Evans and Peel Detective Agency

Always saw yourself as a bit of a detective? The dream is alive: just get your and your date down to Earls Court for a few drinks in a basement which has been converted into a detective agency. You have a fake case and everything!

3. Snowflake

Cool down with an ice at snowflake, a luxury gelato boutique. Because what girl doesn’t love ice cream?

4. Archipelago

If your date is a foodie (and we mean a REAL foodie) then take them to Archipelago where Python and mealworms are on the menu. If you’re lucky, maybe you’ll get bitten by the love bug salad…

5. Regents Park Open Air Theatre

Enjoy a glass of wine watching fantastic performances of some of the classics. Your date will be very impressed, particularly if you remember to bring a blanket for when the sun starts to set.

6. Mr Foggs

Filled with imaginary souvenirs of an imaginary traveller, Mr Foggs is an adventure in itself! Set the scene for the adventures to come, and bring your date here to try the spellbinding cocktails.

7. V & A Bar Café

Hidden within the depths of this incredible Museum is a wonderful little bar café which transforms into a bustling hub of excitement on Friday evenings. And just a few paces away from the world’s most iconic pieces of design. Romance alert!

9. The Booking Office

Firstly, there's nothing like a grand old station bar to get the romance going and set the scene for a delicious dinner and drinks. Secondly, you have the option to spontaneously jump on a Eurostar to Paris for dinner (slight snag, it requires your date to have had the foresight to pack their passport!).

10. Snorkelling with Sharks

Yes you heard right, snorkelling with sharks…in London! At the London Aquarium to be precise, not the Thames you’ll be pleased to know. Now we’re not suggesting this is a first date activity but if you find out your date has a sense of adventure this might be right up their street!
