Arguably, music and food are the two most universal interests. Few things can bond a potential romantic couple more than discovering a new music artist together and sharing in a live experience. Even if you’re both into different genres, the Venn diagram can overlap over wine, pizza and a new band.
- Future Yard
Now one of the most exciting new music venues in the UK, Future Yard re-imagines the role of a live music venue, providing live industry training and a regional hub for artist development. The new community venue brings some of today’s most exciting new national and international artists to the Wirral while at the same time providing key early performance opportunities for emerging local musicians that you can discover early and bond over with your date.
- Wild Inn
A chilled and friendly atmosphere, Wild Inn promises cocktails, cool sounds and zebra print sofas. With hanging light bulbs from the ceiling, a warm wooden interior and friendly clientele, Wild Inn sets up the perfect environment for a chill after-work date.
- Arts Club
A casual bar on the close side of Liverpool with sofas and a basement venue hosting a vibrant programme of gigs and club nights, Arts Club is ideal for the young, cultured millennial date. The list of hosted artists is diverse enough to find something to your and your date’s musical tastes.
A cinema or museum trip is particularly great for those who may sit on the shyer side of the fence. Absorbing culture while watching a film or walking through an exhibition allows for some silence, reflection and introspection. It also provides a great conversation starting point for that chat over coffee post-movie or show.
- Williamson Art Gallery & Museum
Founded in 1928, this single-storey building is Neo-Georgian in style and was deliberately designed to blend in with the local surroundings. This romantic setting displays masterpieces, ceramics and sculptures.
- Lady Lever Art Gallery
Opened in 1922, the Lady Lever Art Gallery is set in the garden village of Port Sunlight on the Wirral and is part of National Museums Liverpool. The interior resembles an art deco dream with embellished white walls adorned with golden frames, complete with an arched glass ceiling.
- Woodside Drive In Cinema
At £15 per car, transport yourself to the 1950s and treat yourself and your date to a romantic drive-in movie experience. Woodside showcases both retro and modern films from Grease and Dirty Dancing to the latest releases such as Raya and the Last Dragon.
The Wirral offers an array of natural beauty, so your dates in nature can get creative, from beach walks to outdoor exhibitions. Pack your flask and take in the fresh air.
- Wirral Country Park
The country park is huge and encompasses many aspects to choose from when it comes to deciding on a romantic date; your choices range from walks on the beach to the Wirral Way – a 12-mile-long combined walking and cycling route with a separate horse riding route. Self-guided trails and ranger-led events programmes are also on offer.
- Royden Park
In a word, Royden Park is nothing less than charming. Encompassing woodlands, heath, a miniature train, picnicking, a walled garden and a cafe, Royden Park helps you to forget all your troubles and encourages you to live in the moment.
- Birkenhead Park
Opened in 1847, Birkenhead Park is generally acknowledged as the first publicly funded civic park in the world. With woodland walks, two fishing lakes and a grand arch entrance, Birkenhead Park transports your date to a more nostalgic and romantic time and place. Walk along the Roman pavilion and boathouse or the Swiss bridge over the lake and get lost in each other’s eyes.
Ah, the dinner date! Arguably the most popular of all the date categories. However, the struggle early on can be finding the perfect balance between smart and casual. A setting that feels too posh can be awkward and intimidating, but a fast-food chain equally does not allow for comfortable conversation to flow. Here are some picks that perfectly strike that balance:
- 107 Dining Room
Offering a simple yet eclectic menu that consists of classics and rogue plates alike, 107 Dining Room is the perfect blend of casual yet classy. Enjoy a glass of wine with a roast dinner or a Sunday breakfast with your date as you chat al fresco.
- Noya Mediterranean Restaurant
The beauty of Noya is its diverse atmosphere in that it can be whatever you need it to be, whether intimate or for a big party, and you can come dressed up or casual. When it comes to the menu, the vibe is the same. Share some tapas or order your own mains with a cocktail on the side.
- Jöro Vegan Eatery
Fabulous Mediterranean-inspired vegan dishes are served in a casual, sitting-room-style interior. Perfect for any date where you want to get honest and really learn about each other, as Jöro creates a homely, relaxed vibe where any pretences are left at the door.
