5 Cool London Date Ideas This Week 12/7/21 – 18/7/21

As our last official week of week of social distancing comes to a close – don’t wait until next week to go on a cool date as there are some amazing things happening in London right now! Here are this week’s 5 cool London Date Ideas!

The “STAND UP For Yourself” Date

Live comedy is a great date night…. Unless you’re in the front row and continuously get the living piss taken out of you in front of your date. Anyway, the Balham Comedy Festival is happening this week showcasing some big names including Rhod Gilbert and Ed Byrne. Grab tickets whilst you can….. Just don’t sit in the front row.

The “Get STUFFED” Date


Restaurant on a first date is a bit hit and miss, BUT – an all you can eat street food date has HIT written all over. It’s happening on Monday and Tuesday evenings at Vauxhall Food and Beer Garden and will set you back £25 a pop!

The “On a HIGH” Date

Gimmicks are back! Yep, if there’s one thing we’ve missed in London it’s overpaying for a cocktail at a pop-up we never knew we needed. On that note, London in the Sky is back and will not only impress your date as you dine and drink….. In the sky overlooking the O2, but you’ll also be stuck with each other as there is nowhere to go. Tickets will set you back at least £79, so you better like them a lot!

The “In the FRAME For Another” Date

A virtual tour of an exhibition just doesn’t cut the mustard. Get your art and culture fix at Rich Mix in Shoreditch with the Shubbak Festival – the UK’s premier festival celebrating Arabic contemporary arts. Expect great music, talks, cinema, dance, theatre and much more!

The “Having a BALL” Date

Not one for the pro-socially distanced crowd, but lots of fun nonetheless. Ballie Ballerson is open again and “Throwback Thursday” is happening on the 25th! Expect nostalgic tunes and aptly-named retro cocktails for a date with a bit of cheese!
