Brixton for a Date

Brixton may not conjure up images of romance but it’s been developing fast over the past few years so it’s not one to overlook. The area around the classic Ritzy cinema has been completely redeveloped and now regularly plays host to small festivals and events. Brixton village, a once dilapidated shopping arcade is now a super trendy restaurant hotspot and Brixton’s bars and clubs are some of the most fun and vibrant in London.

So Brixton for a date? Sure, why not. Read on and we’ll tell you about all the best places to go.

Cannon and Cannon

If you’re anything like us, when you hear ‘supperclub’, you think of over-the-top food and awkward conversation with pretentious foodies, and not a great place for a date. But we love Cannon and Cannon’s Brixton deli, so when we saw they were doing a supperclub, we had to give it a go. Fortunately for us, their supperclub involved a delicious five-course meal and, most importantly, individual tables.

Maltby Street Market

We love a food market, and Maltby Street Market in Bermondsey is one of our favourites for a foodie date. It’s the kind of place where a couple of drinks or a plate of tapas can easily lead to a whole day of eating, drinking and wandering.

Date ideas in London Bridge

With a rich history, it’s no surprise that London Bridge has some of London’s most popular tourist attractions in London. London Bridge Experience can be good fun to kick off a date but be warned, it;s quite expensive so we wouldn’t recommend going unless you have a 2 for 1 deal or love hanging out with a coach load Spanish kids. However, away from the overpriced bars on the river and the throngs of people blocking the outside of the station there are some great places to go on a date.
