Salsa! Soho

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.

Four Quarters Peckham

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.

All Star Lanes Holborn

Classic activity bar All Star Lanes is a winning date location if you want to avoid small talk over dinner. Book out a retro bowling lane and treat yourselves to some shareable plates from beef brisket bites to baked soft pretzels. As for drinks? Think tiki cocktails and quirky shooters. With sites in Holborn, Stratford, Brick Lane and White City, neither of you will have to travel far for a great night out. 

Electric Shuffle Canary Wharf

Sparkling Social

Challenge your date to the ultimate game of hi-tech shuffleboard at Canary Wharf's Electric Shuffle. Play four different games while keeping track of your scores on the screen. Distract your opponent by ordering some small plates like pork bao buns and padrón peppers, or tempt them with one of the quirky cocktails. There's also fun competitive fun to be had at London Bridge

The Cocktail Club - Various Sites

Known for being responsible for some of London's quirkiest bars, The Cocktail Club is always a top pick when it comes to first date locations. Connect over happy hour drinks from pornstar martinis to brambles and mojitos, whether that's in a cosy corner or on the dance floor. 

Flight Club Venues in London

As one of London's original activity bars, Flight Club has a reputation for being a guaranteed great night out – especially for couples that love darts. You'll be playing on hi-tech boards in a series of interactive challenges while consuming cocktail slushies and paddle pizzas for two.
