The 5 most romantic spots in the UK

The 5 most romantic spots in the UK

Looking for somewhere different? Seeking romantic, chilled, or super fancy vibes? Here's our top 5 most romantic settings, and each and every one features award-winning functional cocktails so you don't have to worry about the night ending too quickly...

Self love, friend love, or a romantic kinda love, here are our favourite spots to date, dine and drink. 

1. Primeur

A remote reclaimed garage in Highbury may not seem like the likely setting for one of London's best restaurants but trust us this is absolutely worth the trip. Surrender to the allure of tables dressed with wildflowers and candlelight, and delight in a daily changing menu filled with plates designed for sharing. 

2. Florattica

Prepare to impress at this floral themed rooftop bar in the heart of the capital inspired by East London’s textile industry and the local 17th century French Huguenots’ silk woven floral patterns. This Instagram ready setting is picture perfect by daylight or moonlight. 

3. The Connaught Bar

A permanent fixture on the World's Best Bars list, drop by the Connaught Bar in Mayfair and step into another world. Conversation flows over sparkling glasses and candle-lit tables. Behind the bar, mixologists conjure up new concoctions and time-honoured classic cocktails. 

4. Blinker Bar

The name of this premium Manchester-based bar stems from a forgotten classic cocktail the Blinker, a three ingredient cocktail that inspired a monthly changing cocktail menu with a seasonal approach to perfect serves. A walk-in venue that promises “good company” for all those who enter. Plus the tastiest cacio e pepe toasties for when you get peckish.

5. The Bar Below at HIDE

Come for dinner, stay for the cocktails. Descend the iconic staircase at HIDE and discover the love below. The focus of the cocktails at The Bar Below at HIDE is flavour. Whether the main flavour is a spirit, fruit or a vegetable, it is presented in the very best way possible, using both modern and classic techniques. 

And one more because we're spoilt for choice...

6. Compagnie des Vins Surnaturel

The neighbourhood wine bar for the world with sister locations in New York and Paris. Open daily with indoor & outdoor dining. They take their wine seriously, and their non-alc alternatives too, but not themselves. A friendly, warm atmosphere, just as perfect for when you want to take yourself out for a drink as it is for couples date night.
