With panoramic views of the city and a great atmosphere you will not fall short of things to talk about. Make sure you dress to impress and intend to spend quite a bit as drinks do not come cheap but are completely worth it. If you live in or are visiting Manchester this should definitely be on your list of places to visit.

2. The Fun For All Date


Black Dog Ballroom – Dog Bowl

Dog Bowl brings you ten-pin bowling with a side of modern décor and cocktails. This place is great for a first date as it allows you both to focus on having fun rather than worrying about having something to talk about it. The fun surroundings will help start conversations and show off your personalities. After a game or two you can enjoy a bite to eat from their Tek-Mex menu and sit down with a Margarita in hand to polish off the night.

3. The Find Love in Laughter Date


The Frog and Bucket

As Manchester’s longest running comedy venue booking top comedian acts, where better to go for a relaxing and enjoyable date? A perfect balance of conversation and entertainment will make way for an enjoyable evening, no pressure and no worries of what to wear. With a great atmosphere, laughter and flowing drinks you and your date will thoroughly enjoy the event, even if you don’t enjoy each other’s company! Make sure you book early to guarantee a space!

4. The Flying Through The Trees Date


Go Ape, Rivington, Bolton

Now this is one for those who enjoy the great outdoors and aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty. Described as a tree top adventure course, you will learn so much more about your date on this than you would at any normal sit down dinner date. Strength, agility, team work and a sense of humour are essential to get you through the tree top course; perfect to find out your compatibility. However if you are afraid of heights or feel uncomfortable about stepping into a harness then give this option a miss, unless you’re up for a challenge.

5. The Perfect Picnic Date

With only the interruption of bird song, you can get to chat free from distraction.
