Every now and again, who doesn’t love to tuck into a nice juicy burger, salty chips and a lip-smacking milkshake? And if it’s on a date, even better!
The ultimate indulgence, these delicious foods are even better enjoyed in the surroundings of an authentic American-style diner, but you don’t have to jet-set across the globe to experience the iconic barstools, neon signs and juke box tunes – oh no!
London is home to abundance great selection of American diners and restaurants, so why not treat your date to the American dream (dinner)?!
Ed’s Easy Diner – Soho
London dating the American way – made easy by Ed’s Easy Diner. Boasting a fun, nostalgic 1950’s themed décor, Ed’s Easy Diner crops up in a few spots across the capital, so you’re never far from one.
If you’re dating, our favourite is the one perched on the edge of buzzy Soho; this central spot is an excellent dinner shout for a pre or post Theatre or West End date.
Serving up everything you’d expect from an American restaurant and more, Ed’s plays some classic tunes while you dine, from Elvis to Buddy Holly; we challenge you not to Jitterbug and Lindy hop over to your stools!
Tinseltown Diner – Bayswater
