Need a cheap place to take your Tinder date while maintaining that hipster vibe you've built up in the chat? Look no further than The £1 Cinema Club at The Grand, that plays a whole host of cult classic films, with themed cocktails and drinking games to boot.
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.
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.
The Purple Bar is a great place to take your Tinder date if you want to impress them. Hidden away at The Sanderson in Oxford Circus, the deluxe bar is coated in a blend of purple and lavender velvets, and offers a series expertly prepared cocktails to really ooze that James Bond sex appeal.
The Magic Roundabout's location alone is enough to mark it out as a very unique place to take your date in London. But the amazing decoration, coupled with amazing craft beer, award-winning food and banging DJs in a heated outdoor setting makes it spectacular enough to guarentee another date.
Finding the nondescript green door of Opium before being lead up to the fresh, oriental interior will intrigue even the most skeptical date. With an amazing selection of Asian cocktails and food including dim sum, this is one of the best places for a Tinder date in London for an intimate, quality night.
Take your Tinder date to Burlock for a great atmosphere and even better drinks. They serve 200 types of rum, with authentic Cuban and Caribbean food if you're feeling peckish. Want to impress them? Try the grasshopper challenge: a grasshopper, a shot of rum and a Barbadian 10 saints beer.
Get stuck in at the buzzing bar and dance floor below or eat a delicious meal on the mezzanine dining floor above; either way, the Jazz Cafe is the perfect fun time party bar to take your date in London.
To really push that 'exclusive, important person' image you've been building up on chat, bring your date to the Six Storeys, where you'll enjoy a bar that focuses on the 'Square's colourful and bohemian past.' Sit in the decadent first two floors or book a more private space in one of its many themed floors, which combined really makes it one of the best places to take your Tinder date in London.
The stunning 'Victorian men's club' aesthetics of The Escapologist alone is enough to woo any date. Sitting beneath Covent Garden, the outrageous bar offers a delicious variety of cocktails to get stuck into served by friendly staff.
Urban Coterie is a great place to impress your date in London because of its spetacular view of Shoreditch. Sat 16 floors above the bustling streets, the restaurant serves seasonal British food coupled with classic cocktails. For a delicious meal with a stunning view, book yourself in here.
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.
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.
The Victorian Bath House is the perfect place to take your date for a truly high-end experience. Available by booking only, the Grade II listed building is made of beautiful Victorian interiors while serving some era-inspired cocktails created with a modern twist.
Your date seems like they've been taken everywhere in the city, so it's time to show them the wonders of one of the best secret bars in London with The Bootlegger. Hidden behind a secret door, the speakeasy themed bar serves a variety of 1920s inspired booze, an American inspired menu with live jazz music.
