Nothing proves that you're are a fun person to go on a date with than the ability to laugh at yourself (should you sit in the first row). Enjoy an evening at the Laughter House with a night of comedy from the latest up-and-comers and established artists. You can even grab a bite to eat as well.
What's a quirky Liverpool date without a quirky bar to match? The Smugglers Cove is one of the biggest watering holes in the city and hiding within is a pirate's booty worth of vintage trinkets, rich velvets and broody candelabras. While you've stopped off to admire the pirate vibes, you might as well grab a rum-laced drink and a bite to eat.
One of the most quirky bars in Liverpool also happens to be one of the hardest to find. First you have to discover their phone number to book a table, then be ultra-quick to get one in the first place. Only after this will you get the top-secret location – and once inside, it's all worth it with a cocktail menu filled with some of the most creative concoctions in the North.
Looking for things to do outside of the city? Shake things up with a trip to one of these retro cinemas. Popping up across the UK, they're bringing you old-school snacks, blockbuster movies and sunset views for the ultimate day out for couples.
While going to a church service might seem like the opposite of a good date idea in Liverpool, you should hear us out. Brunch with the tunes of a live gospel choir serenading you? Now that sounds like a fun time, especially when it's in the converted church and South American restaurant Alma de Cuba.
