Shake things up a bit with these silly date night ideas

Is a cheeky Nando’s just not cutting it anymore? Losing your way in an ongoing sea of Netflix and chill? Or tired of arguing about whether you should watch a rom com or the latest Marvel film at the cinema?

Whether you are planning a first date, a Tinder fling or just looking to shake things up a bit with the old ball and chain, here are a few silly date night ideas in London or Brighton that might tickle your pickle:

1. Get theatrical at Secret Cinema in London

We are not talking about a standard cinema experience here, rather a theatrical experience with film. If you want to do something different and love a bit of dressing up then this could be up your street. Join the mailing list and be ready to spontaneously whisk your other half out for a night of theatrical antics.

2. Get your beer pong on at Porkys in London

What better way is there to break the ice on a first date (or get to second base on a second date) than throwing a ball in a cup full of beer? Genius invention! You can get all American Pie and enjoy some pong wrist action down at Porky’s BOXPARK in Shoreditch.

3. Inspire fearful cuddles on a Ghost Walk in Brighton

Take a dark tour of the Brighton lanes and enjoy extra fearful cuddles from your other half as you discover the ghostly history of the city. The Ghost Walk of the Lanes runs every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings and lasts approximately 70 minutes from 7.30pm from The Druids Head, Brighton Place.

4. Get all retro with some board games at Draughts in London

A haven for game lovers, Draughts in Hackney is the first board game café. With a library of over 600 board games you won’t get bored and enjoy some healthy competition. Not to mention the tasty food menu and quality booze on tap. If you are really serious about gaming they also host tournaments, themed evenings and board game design workshops.  

5. Solve the clues to win the fabled wine at our escape games

We have four hidden rooms across Brighton and London with strange and strategic quests. While there can be up to six players, two will have just as much fun or why not make a couple date with some of your friends? Instead of getting bored over dinner you can venture through an hour of hilarious clue solving as you attempt to win Chastity's fabled aphrodisiac wine.

Ready to get silly with your date?

We hope that you are now inspired to do something different for your next date and we would love to hear how it goes on Twitter @HM_Mysteries #DateNight.
