Four Quarters Peckham

28 user reviews 5

If the reason you swiped right was because they claimed to love 'beer and video games' then The Four Quarters is the date location made in heaven. With a wide selection of craft beers on offer and different themed nights at the weekend, it's really the retro arcade games that steal the show. There's nothing like a bit of competition to ease a date along and, if it all goes badly, then at least you've got the new high score on Ms Pacman.

Circus-themed Aeronaut is definitely somewhere different to take your Tinder date in London. Outside is a wonderful beer garden filled with coconut shy, hook-a-duck and even strong man booths. Inside, the pub shows off its airborne cabaret and circus performers stage gymnastic feats that will keep you gasping in delight.

Swift Shoreditch

1 user review 5

A fun and stylish bar for a first date in East London, Swift Shoreditch is sure to impress your Tinder beau. Head over for tasty £6 cocktails before 7pm or - if all's going well - stay on for a few bites and see where the night takes you.

@ The Candlemaker on Every Saturday

When their bio says 'loves a laugh with friends,' you have to take them to Steamy Bingo Bottomless Brunch at the Candlemaker. The Clapham bar is offering a seemingly endless amount of booze and food while the hilarious Tina Turner Tea Lady eases you along with a game of bingo. Definitely a quirky place for a Tinder date.

Inamo Soho

Sushi & Asian Tapas Afternoon Tea with Bottomless Bubbles £29.95pp and 2 other offers

You met through the wonders of technology, so why not bond over dinner about it at Inamo Soho. Through their table, you can order delicious food while also messing around by playing a game of Battleships with your date. Perfect place to take your Tinder date in London if you worry a normal dinner could get a bit awkward.

Salsa! Soho

146 user reviews 4

Salsa is one of those fun bars in London to take your date that offers affordable food and drink coupled with a real party attitude as the night progresses. The music is pure Latin American and gives you the perfect opportunity to put on those dancing shoes and throw some serious shapes. Or, for something more structured, they also offer fun cocktail masterclasses everday, if you need to guarentee that South American courage.

Simmons Camden Town

First impressions are important on a date and the kitsch, quirky interior of crystal skulls and neon signs will certainly do that. But their wonderfully weird cocktails served in intriguing crockery will keep the conversation flowing and the five hour long happy hour will keep your wallet happy. If you're close to Euston, head to their Euston Square spot.
