Date Nights in East London
So it’s date night, and you’re stuck for inspo? We’ve got you covered. Ditch the fancy dinners and seek out something altogether a little more exciting in East London.
Watch something arty at Castle Cinema
A revival we can certainly get behind, the Castle Cinema was built back in 1913 and has been brought back to its former glory. With all the original features still intact, you can enjoy the latest blockbusters whilst sitting in an expansively comfy armchair. When the credits have finished rolling (no sneaking out) there’s a stunning Art Deco bar that serves pizza and a good range of vegan options. Just a 16-minute bus ride from our homes at Vodion, Hackney Wick
First Floor, 64 - 66 Brooksby's Walk, London E9 6DA
Try some Disco Ballet
A stretch and a boogie, name a better combo. Disco ballet might be the most unconventional date idea we've come across, but it’ certainly going to get you both a little looser. The class aims to get you laughing and connecting with the fellow students, so it’s a conversation starter at the very least (if the small talk isn’t quite cutting it). Covering a range of locations across London, check out their website to find a class near you. Get on your bikes and be there in 20 minutes from Vodion, Hackney Wick.
21-31 Shacklewell Ln, London E8 2DA
Stay out late at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club
Take your date on night out that can only be described as a huge slay. With a wide range of great music, comedy, and of course drag shows, Bethnal Green Working Men's Club is the perfect space to let go and get to know whoever you’re dating. It’s Just a 13-minute stroll from our homes at Corner Place, Bethnal Green.
42-46 Pollard Row, London E2 6NB
Take a swing at Plonk Golf
Giving a whole new meaning to crazy golf, Plonk will have you jumping through the mouth of a shark, cascading down the side of a volcano, whooshing around a giant stone loop and teetering on the edge of a totem. Let out your competitive side, because let’s be honest, if they haven’t got the ick after you confidently thrash them at crazy golf, they’re a keeper. All just a 10-minute ride on the Overground from Corner Place, Bethnal Green.
Arch 407 Mentmore Terrace, London E8 3PP
If crazy golf or disco ballet isn’t quite your style, why not take it back to basics with a laid-back pint and a game of cards at Lord Morpeth. This classic boozer is the perfect blend of old-time drinking and new world atmosphere. If dishing out cards becomes tiring work why not take a bite out of their award-winning sourdough pizzas? It’s just a 15-minute walk from our homes at Vodion, Hackney Wick.
402 Old Ford Rd., Old Ford, London E3 5NR
