Quirky Date Nights in London

London is the perfect spot for a fun-filled date night as there’s simply so much to do! Every week there is something new opening which means there’s away something new to try. There are plenty of sites that will show where’s the hottest place to be this week, but if you’re looking for some classic fun, stick around here!

Grabbing a drink at a nice bar is a little boring these days, so if you really want to impress your date with the amount of effort you’ve put into planning, whether it’s your first or fifty-first date, here’s a guide to show you where to go to really up the ante…

Phantom Peak

✒️ Consider yourself a bit of an adventurer? Or even a bit of a detective? Phantom Peak will bring all of that out in you. You’ll need to uncover secrets, collect clues and fully immerse yourself in a world where all is not what it seems. Cocktails and good food help along the way too!

📍The Southwark Construction Skills Centre, Canada St & Surrey Quays Rd, London SE16 7PJ


✒️  Dabbers is always a good night out; whether it’s a date or group night out, you’ll be laughing the night away. They’ve reinvented bingo by making it social, fun and chaotic in the best possible. I’ve never had a bad night at Dabbers! The food and drink on-site will also exceed your expectations too!

📍 18 – 22 Houndsditch, London EC3A 7DB

Flight Club

✒️  Social darts is a great way to challenge your date and have fun. The darts you play isn’t serious at all, so you don’t have to be good at it! The food menu has lots of classic favourites and the drinks’ menu has such a good cocktail offering.

Boom Battle Bar

✒️ At Boom Battle Bar, there are so many different challenges to take on. My personal favourites are the crazier golf and the shuffleboard. If you’re down for a drinking challenge then hop onto the beer pong table or sharpen up your act with some axe throwing. You won’t be stuck for things to do here.

✒️ If you’re looking for something a little more chilled, but not quite sitting in a bar, then try Vagabond. With self-service wine tasting, you can try as many wines as you want, learning as you go, with a cheese or charcuterie board to keep your hunger at bay.

Moonshine Saloon

✒️ Moonshine Saloon transports guests from the streets of East London to a Saloon in the Wild West. Once you’ve smuggled in your bottle of spirit, you’re part of a covert liquor operation to drink, mingle with the locals and have fun, without getting caught by the Sheriff. 

📍28-30 Houndsditch, London EC3A 7DB
