Intimate Bars for Date Night

Looking to impress your date with an original and sophisticated venue? With so many options throughout the city, Londoners are spoilt for choice, which only makes the decision that much harder. Take the stress out of deciding with our guide to the best bars for a drink à deux and turn your attention to more important matters (like what you’re going to wear...)


Planet of The Grapes. Pinterest wouldn't upload anything from their site so here's an article on them instead. Best wine shop in London, plus they do incredible tastings at their Bow Lane restaurant. This will change your life. See Awesome Prosecco for wines I've only drunk on their recommendation, and have always been back for more!

What they say 68 and Boston comes courtesy of Eric Yu (Opium/The Social), Martin Malley (co-owner of Planet of the Grapes) and Luca Cordiglieri (former bar manager at China Tang at The Dorchester). It combines an all-day-to-night wine bar and cocktail lounge. What we say 68 and Boston function as two distinct places: past the shared entrance hall is wine bar 68 and to the right, upstairs, cocktail hub Boston. They share a roof and little else.

These turn out to be really cute! All you need is paper mache mix, balloons and some yarn. 1) blow up the balloons 2) slowly drape the yarn around the balloon 3) cover the yarn in the paper mache mix 4) let dry for 24 hours 5) pop the balloon and TA-DA cute little lanterns :)

Beginning with strawberries, cherries and apricots in late spring and early summer, followed by the "king" of summer fruit is undoubtedly the watermelon, the "golden" melon, the fragrant peaches and nectarines. Also the well-known from the time of Homer grapes. All these are identified with the Greek land, with white or black figs are just some "treasures" of Greek land that our company takes care to ... travel to different corners of the planet with its export activity.

there's a fable of a fox looking at the reflection of the grapes he holds in his mouth, soon he covets the grapes he sees in the reflection more than the ones he has, and drops the ones he has into the water and dives in after the illusion... really, that's too much for a child to bare, bad fairy tales!
