Dining Dans Le Noir?

We decided to go to Dans le Noir? after a friend’s recommendation. The concept is quite simple really – you have your dinner in complete darkness where you are guided and served by blind people. The reality is really not that simple.

Giant Robot

I first came to Giant Robot a week or so ago when my date and I decided to stop off for a quick drink after work. I instantly liked the fun feel of it, it managed to pull off industrial and cosy at the same time with exposed brickwork, metal and tea lights creating a nice effect.

The Artisan of Clerkenwell

When I was brought to the Artisan of Clerkenwell on a date last week I was expecting a trendy but typical bar. But after spending the evening there, I have to admit that it is much more. To start with, I instantly liked the look of the place. The funky industrial decor is interlaced with vintage touches; I particularly liked the teacup candles on all the tables.

It’s almost here…the big V Day. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

We realise that Valentine’s Day can be pretty expensive and you feel forced to splash out on cliched dinners, trendy bars or top shows.

Breakfast at The Modern Pantry

Perhaps not strictly a date idea, but for an impressive morning-after-the-night-before breakie, The Modern Pantry in Clerkenwell does the job. We went there for Saturday brunch, where the menu included a prawn and chilli omelette, and rendang mince on sourdough toast – not your typical caff breakfast.

Bleeding Heart Restaurant

Voted the most romantic restaurant in London by The Times, romance is very the theme of this restaurant.

Set in on corner of the historically rich Bleeding Heart Yard, the restaurant is part of the Bleeding Heart collection of eateries. Walking downstairs to the historic oak panelled dining room, we were immediately impressed by the décor and warm candlelight. The restaurant has a cosy atmosphere and is filled with lovely little touches which added to the ambience, such as the heart painted onto the butter, and the heart stencilled onto the window.
