Tired of heading to a boring ol' restaurant for a date? Why not make your own food with YO! Brighton's awesome sushi masterclasses? Not only will you learn all about how to create Japanese dishes, from salmon nigiri to crunchy Cali rolls, but you'll get to taste it all too. Oh, yes.

Planning a date that's a little out of the box? Then check out Ink (at etch. by Steven Edwards). This speakeasy-style joint located underneath the best-loved venue is sure to impress with a glorious array of cocktails and interiors. Think features inspired by an ex-tattoo studio.

@ Alcotraz Penitentiary: Brighton on Various dates from Wednesday 8th February 2023

Fancy quaffing cocktails in the clink together? Then head to Brighton's finest Alcotraz: Cell Block One-Three. Inside this immersive prison, you'll have to sneak in liquor past the warden all while befriending the crooked guards, which will be used to make your bespoke bevvies.

Bored of the same old bog-standard dinners and drinks? Guru Dudu's Silent Disco Tours is sure to jazz things up. Armed with your headphones and a spring in your step, dance-walk through the streets, with intermittent flash mobs and hilarious commentary to wrap the whole experience up.

This gorgeous little gin bar on Church Road is full of little quirks that will delight both you and your date. Each table comes equipped with a bar from which to order drinks or just have a chinwag with someone at the next table. Cosy and intimate, it's a fun place for a kooky Brighton date night.
