From quirky club nights to romantic dinners, stylish cocktail bars to fun experiences, we've got them all right here. Check out our top recommendations of things to do this Valentine's Day. 




If you're looking for something a little more laid-back, this could be just the one. Serving up affordable pizzas, beer, cocktails and over 35 gins, you'll have plenty to do with Xbox games, retro arcade machines, pool and Scotland's only Trilliards Table, whatever that is.

This quirky haunt is a great little spot for gin-lovers, whether you're dropping in for a quick drink or two, or fancy a full-blown masterclass experience. You'll be able to watch gin destill before your very eyes as you sip away and nibble at one of their delightful charcuterie boards.

Enjoy a romantic dinner at one of the city's most cherished restaurants. You'll wow your date with some stunning sharing plates such as the house black dhal, pau bhaji and the chef's special salli boti, a mouthwatering tender lamb dish.
