People are often attracted to Bristol for its cool nightlife, cultural hotspots, and family-friendly activities, but it’s also a fantastic place for couples. Whether you’re booking a serviced apartment for a quick visit or you’re a Bristol local yourself, here are just four great date night ideas to enjoy with your partner.
1. Visit an Escape Room
Escape rooms have exploded in popularity over the last few years, and they’re becoming an increasingly popular option for date nights. Perfect for injecting a little excitement into the night, escape rooms force you to solve clues and puzzles to get out in 60 minutes or less, so you’ll have to work with your partner to succeed. Bristol has plenty of themed escape rooms, so take a look around for something that fits.
2. Try a Comedy Club
They say laughter is the best medicine, but it’s also something of an aphrodisiac. There’s nothing much better than sharing laughter with your special someone, and Bristol has plenty of comedy clubs where you can do just that. One of our top picks is A Bunch of Japes, a comedy evening hosted by Smoke and Mirrors every Monday night.
3. Experiment at a Cocktail Bar
Going for a drink at the pub isn’t going to set your love life on fire, but visiting one of Bristol’s top cocktail clubs is another story entirely. A perfect excuse for you to get dressed up in your best, cocktail bars can present a wide range of tipples you might never even have heard of, let alone tried. Combined with talented bar staff and a sophisticated atmosphere, they create a fantastic date night.
4. Get Airborne in a Hot Air Balloon
Bristol is home to the International Balloon Fiesta, so it should come as no surprise to learn that you can take a balloon ride over the city during most times of the year. Sure to impress your partner, this is a once in a lifetime date night idea you should certainly take advantage of if you’ll be visiting Bristol.
