@ The Biscuit Factory on Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th August 2019

Ditch your usual date night and head to The Biscuit Factory where Angostura is taking over during Fringe. From live improv and DJs on the decks to classic rum concoctions and pink gin cocktails, this is the ultimate date night this August.

Do something a little different and take your partner to catch a film under the stars. With the choice of A Star Is Born or Sunshine On Leith, you can either catch a hit new flick or re-live a classic, with the comfort of a cosy blanket in romantic setting of Edinburgh's Botanical Gardens.

Whether you're in the mood for a banging breakfast, or plush dinner, you can be sure that The Refinery will bring a touch of glamour to your romantic date in Edinburgh. Seats are covered in lavish faux-fur and comfy blankets, as windows go from floor-to-ceiling, for a glitzy touch. Dine al fresco or head upstairs for the show-stopping spiral staircase which will definitely impress.

Following a £1million pound refurbishment, this late night hangout is a go-to for cocktails, street food and dancing 'til the wee hours. Cocktails are created using artisan bitters and bespoke syrups, while authentic Asian street food takes centre stage. If that wasn't enough, DJ's spin into the morning for a fun date idea in Edinburgh.
