I think Fitzrovia is the perfect place for a first date. Mainly because I work there, so it’s convenient for me. Jokes aside though, Fitzrovia is nice and central meeting point, plenty to see and do, and a backdrop worthy of Instagram. On the downside though, a lot of the venues tend to be a little overpriced, and a lot of the bars tend to be private members-only venues. But fear not, I’ve put together a list of Fitzrovia date ideas that, although super-cool, won’t break the bank.
To mix it up from the usual musings, dating tales, and reviews, I’m introducing a new feature to this blog. If Twitter is anything to go by, it seems a fair few of my followers live in London and are currently dating. Plus I thought I could gain a little search traffic from Googlers searching for places in a specific location, so I thought I’d start a series of London date ideas. For each area, my aim is to pick out a selection of cool, fun, possibly quirky, out-of-the-way, date venues that you may not have heard of, so we can all start going on better dates. Well, in terms of the location at least.
To start with, we have Oxford Circus. Anyone who’s been to London has probably visited this world-famous shopping strip. In the heart of London and the epitome of “bright lights big city”, Oxford Street is a sight to behold, but dates here don’t have to cost the earth.
