Pizza Pilgrims are slinging up delicious and budget-friendly Neapolitan slices. Grab a table in the fun Shoreditch restaurant and take your pick from their mega menu of chomps, touting toppings such as truffle and mushroom bites and one with eight different types of cheese.
Located in the popular Soho area, Thirst is a brilliant cocktail bar and late-night party spot on Greek Street. Check out their stupid hour and sip on cosmos and margaritas for only £6 until 6pm or come round a little later and show off your moves on their basement dancefloor.
Everyone knows that couples who play together, stay together... so get down to The Four Quarters and battle it out on your favourite retro arcade games. Grab a couple of craft beers at the Peckham den or enjoy two for £10 cocktails at this fun location for cheap date nights in London.
If you're after something a little different, Covent Garden's Seven Dials Market is the place for you. The variously priced food stalls have something for everyone - think vegan tacos, pasta and bao buns - whilst the interiors will keep you both gawping.
Whether you're here for their drinks deals, bottomless brunch or a late-night dance, one thing's for certain: The Piano Works will have you both smiling from ear to ear. Although, considering their resident band are on hand to play jazzy renditions requested by you, it's hard for them not to leave a lasting impression.
