If you're looking for something a little unusual for your next date night then this authentic Polish restaurant is the place to head.

Subtle Parisian chic and crafty cocktails, this spot has it all. A relaxed and cosy restaurant bar in Harborne, Arco Lounge is a great first date venue to get to know each other over a bottle or two. How about wowing your date with a cool urban myth? Because apparently this bar may in fact be owned by none other than Banksy.
