Just Singles On Location: Edinburgh
This week, we visited the wonderful city of Edinburgh to show you what amazing dates you could be having…
Break the ice and take your date to watch some side-splitting comedy at The Stand. Sure, you can enjoy the beautiful weather we’re having at the moment, but you can be sure of no awkward silences at the FREE Sunday lunchtime improv show! This hilarious long-running comedy routine will be sure to have you and your date in stitches – just don’t reveal that you’re on your first date! No need to worry about lunch, there’s a special menu for the Sunday shows so there’s no need to go out for food after; just take a stroll around the city in the sunshine and chat about how great the show was. Cheap, cheerful and cheeky!
We know going to the cinema is a cliche for a first date, but The Dominion Cinema is a little bit different. Every screen is kitted out with big comfy sofas, so grab a seat and a bottle of wine (yes, they serve alcohol too!) and cuddle up with a good film!
Edinburgh is bursting with fun, unique bars, but our favourite has to be Panda & Sons. Don’t expect to see a big sign and flashing lights outside, the bar has a secret entrance! Similar to the secret watering holes during the prohibition era, the outside of the ‘bar’ is reminiscent of a dodgy back alley barbershop, so keep your eyes and ears peeled! Once you’ve found your way into Narnia you can sit back, relax and enjoy the endless list of delicious cocktails and nibbles.
It’s the perfect time of year to be outside, so make the most of it and take your date on a little adventure to Arthur’s Seat. Most people come to Edinburgh for the castle, so show them something different and visit a volcano instead, don’t worry, it’s extinct! Arthur’s Seat sits 251m above sea level, giving amazing view of the city and the surrounding countryside. Pack a picnic and some blankets and enjoy the scenery for a beautiful and romantic date they’ll never forget!
