For a first date, it makes a good ice-breaker, but still a great date idea no matter your relationship status.

Chill Vibe? Try the Queen in the West

Queen in the West is a charming pub close to West Parade if you’re more of a pub person. It is the perfect place if you want a more chilled out date while being in a nice environment. They have plenty of other drinks as well, such as a Long Island iced tea, if you don’t fancy a pint. It includes a darts board and has live music, and they have quizzes on from time to time.

Fancy Vibe? Check out Cognito

Consider checking out Cognito if cocktails and Japanese cuisine are your thing. It has a wide range of Japanese food which also includes vegan, gluten free and vegetarian options.

Gaming Vibe? Go to Carousel

If you are a sucker for a games night, Carousel is where you belong. They have a tone of arcade games, including air-hockey and Dance Dance Revolution, which you can play all night long on. They have a darts board and shuffle board table down stairs as well if that is more your thing. Carousel also has loads of different cocktails and other fun drinks.
