It’s that time of year again girls and boys. The one where you get pierced by rose thorns on the tube, get every restaurant full of couples and start to worry either about what you might have to buy or do or who you will spend the evening with all together.
So in a bid to help ease the strain we have worked out some good options for dining on the night wether singled or coupled.
Supperclub : If you choose to dine at supperclub on 14th February you and your lover (or friend so be warned) will not only dine in bed but will also be handcuffed together for the duration of the evening. Couples will be made to feed each other and will have to stay handcuffed even when the call of nature comes (ok maybe a little bit much but hey, people in love do crazy things). If you manage to stay attached to your loved one for the entire night you will be offered a spectacular prize.
Winterwell ‘Head Over Heels’ Special : The team behind boutique festival Winterwell are hosting London’s greatest love in on Friday 10th January all themed around romance, crushes, flirting, dirty dancing and fancy dress flings at their Head over Heels Valentine Special. Winterwell is providing a lover’s paradise with walls covered in hearts of all sizes, a kissing booth and plush reclining areas for the amorous andintimate alcoves to whisper sweet nothings to the object of your desire. Guests are asked to throw themselves into the fancy dress theme quite literally and tofocus on their heads and heels, adorning themselves in feathers, hats, masks, slippers and kinky boots and other titillating attire.
Kumo: Getting a bit up market now. Kumo are offering the chance for one lucky couple to win a precious stone or diamond on Valentines night. The stone will be at the bottom of one of the bespoke, ‘Diamonds are Forever’ cocktail and whoever finds the gem gets to keep it.
Bunga Bunga : Bunga Bunga are making their Valentines evening a ‘Bella Notte’ themed one. You and your loved one will be transported to an authentic candle lit Italian pizzeria straight out of one of Disney’s most iconic films, Lady and the Tramp. Bunga Bunga welcomes both couples for an intimate dinner and is one of the more welcoming venues when it comes to non couples with group bookings available too.
Archer Street : This Soho bar is introducing new cocktail the Cupid’s Bow for the loving period. On the night Archer Street are also putting on live entertainment with the more talented of their bar staff serenading couples with a host of romantic songs.
The Brompton Bar & Grill : Shake off the mush with a bit of live jazz for Valentine’s Day at Brompton Bar and Grill. A glass of Rose on arrival will get you in the mood for a much more upbeat Valentines.
