Bellfield Brewery & Taproom

If you're looking to get involved with an activity together as opposed to a sit-down dinner with fancy wine, then you'll love Bellfield Brewery & Taproom's beer tasting and tour, taking place on Fridays or the weekend. This cosy haunt boasts an inside decked out with fairy lights, a spacious garden equipped with heated booths and 15 fonts in the taproom, some of which you'll get to know over the space of your hour time slot should you opt to be guided around the brewery. 

Lane7 Edinburgh

There's nothing better than a little friendly competition with your other half, and Lane7 knows that. Not only does this city centre spot boast cool, graffiti-covered bowling lanes, but you can also try your hand at shuffleboard, mini golf, digital darts and much more. Fat Hippo is heading up the kitchen here, dishing up juicy American-style burgers to pair with a frozen cocktail or two.

The Devil’s Advocate Bar & Kitchen

Tucked away in the historic Old Town, this former Victorian pump house is an intimate venue that possesses cosy nooks for snuggling up in with your sweetheart. Plus, The Devil's Advocate boasts over 300 bottles of whisky from around the world, a selection that's sure to impress any date. And if you get peckish? There's a mouthwatering menu of Scottish fare, like slow-cooked pork belly with a white bean and sweet potato cassoulet.

Put your relationship to the ultimate test with Escape Hunt, one of the best couples' experiences in Edinburgh. Take on samurai fighters, swashbuckling pirates and invading Vikings by cracking codes and solving clues. But make sure to be quick, as you only have 60 minutes to beat the challenge.

From meditation to yoga, and even foraging for beginners, there's something for everyone.
