When it comes to planning a date night in Birmingham singles /couples are spoilt for choice. With a vast variety of bars and clubs providing a standard rendezvous venue, your date can be either a casual or dressed up affair.
However, as much as it is nice to go for a meal and a drink with someone, it can be refreshing to try something new and enjoy a date with a difference.
Day, evening or night… if you look into the Birmingham dating scene, you can find some fabulously unique places for a romantic social occasion.
Below I have compiled a list of great alternative venues, so that you can make your date a memorable one.
Located in Birmingham’s Custard Factory, Ghetto golf is the fantastic new venue that everyone is talking about. Not only does it offer a combination of a seriously twisted 18 hole mini golf experience but it also hosts DJ’s and a cocktail bar.
With a smart-casual vibe, ghetto golf would be a great venue to enjoy a fun-filled date and release your competitive side. It will also make for a great backdrop for those couple selfies,
At 60 minutes long, escape rooms make for a great physical adventure and a fun interactive date. Learn more about each other as you complete a sequence of puzzles and mysteries.
This is also an ideal venue if you want to make it a group date and spend some time with other couples, since most rooms allow between 2-6 people.
Although a trip to the cinema might seem like a standard date, the mockingbird cinema offers a night at the movies with a difference. With theme nights for selected movies and the option to have a meal and a drink prior to the screening, you can make this a movie night with a difference.
My boyfriend took me here as part of our first date and I loved it. With animals ranging from red pandas to a large collection of monkeys. there really is lots to see here.
We didn’t run out of things to talk about and the gift shop allowed us to purchase a reminder of a wonderful date. This is a perfect venue for animal lovers and those who love the outdoors.
The above dates are great for those who are tired of the usual date nights and also for those who are going on a first date. They make terrific icebreakers and also allow you to feel secure when meeting someone for the first time.
As mentioned in my previous dating posts I am an advocate for people who are meeting following an introduction via dating sites, to meet in a public place. When you are meeting someone for the first time you need to make sure that you feel comfortable in their company and secure in the environment you are in.
Remember to enjoy dating in Birmingham
