Whether you're planning a first date or simply looking to raise the romance, coming up with something to do on a date can be a daunting task. We've channelled our inner cupid and come up with some great dates ideas for you and your other half - and you can do all of them at Westfield.
PUTT YOUR SKILLS TO THE TEST
Put your mini-golf skills to the test and Puttshack, the world's first super tech indoor mini golf experience.
Each golf course is inspired by retro computer, arcade and fairground games and incorporates interactive play and automatic point scoring. You can even replay highlights thanks to the high powered mini-computer inside the ball. A night out here is bound to 'putt' a smile on your date's face.
Bowl your partner away with your tenpin skills (or lack of) at All Star Lanes. There's nothing like a bit of friendly competition to get the sparks flying, and you can continue the fun with drinks and a bite to eat afterwards.
They say the way to a person's heart is through their stomach, so arm yourself with new skills and get hands-on at Jamie Oliver's Cookery School. The global cuisines will get you both chatting about firm favourite date conversation topics: food and travel. From making your own pasta, to rustling up Vietnamese street food, there’s something to woo all taste buds and skill levels.
If you're after an action-packed date then Bat & Ball at Westfield Stratford City is the venue for you. Break the ice over a friendly game of ping pong and enjoy the well-stocked bar, buzzing atmosphere and party playlists.
If you're after a more relaxed evening, then a classic movie date is the perfect option. Raise the bar by treating your date to a Vue Scene experience, including your very own private bar and luxurious leather seating.
If you're keen to keep things casual then invite them out for a date over drinks.
Sample a range of craft beers, stouts, pale ales and more at Tap East in Westfield Stratford, or join the Whisky Social on the 2nd week of every 2nd month and indulge in a selection of the finest whisky and bourbons from around the world.
Fancy something a bit more relaxed? Head to The Bull at Westfield Shepherd's Bush and unwind with some bubbles in the sun on the balcony, or cosy up with a cocktail on a couch in front of the fire.
Visit the Place To Eat cafe in John Lewis at Westfield London and enjoy coffee and cake outdoors, whilst also taking in the scenic view. Or, head over to Aspers Sky Bar and Terrace in Westfield Stratford City. Escape from everyday life and unwind in the outdoor garden, whilst overlooking spectacular views of the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
From Tuesday to Saturday, the opulent Grand Caffe Concerto in The Village at Westfield Shepherd's Bush plays host to a series of soul, funk and jazz artists. Pianists and singers will serenade you and your date while you dine, making your evening instantly more romantic.
Dine and dazzle your date over dinner. Enjoy a traditional, hearty and romantic Italian meal at Carluccio's at Westfield London or at Pasta Remoli at Westfield Stratford City. At the latter, you can choose your pasta type, sauce and cheese combination, so your meal is a truly bespoke affair. The vibe is casual and the decor eclectic, making it a great spot for an after-work meal.
Not a fan of Italian? Spice up the date with something different. We recommend Cabana Brasilian Barbecue or Indigo, who master the art of Indian street food.
