How to plan the best date ever

Another date? Special anniversary or birthday? Whatever the occasion, it’s time to make it the best date ever.

Date night comes with a lot of pressure. Will it be fun? Will you have enough to talk about? Can you afford it? These are all questions that will sure to be plaguing you in the run-up to the event.

But never fear, your dream date night is here! Impress the one you’re with using our date night guide to guarantee an evening to remember.

Make your pitch

Remember, this isn’t any old date. It’s the BEST DATE EVER. And that means you’re going to have to sell it to get the other person on board. Don’t give away too many details, but promise them some fun and something a little different. The best date nights are the unexpected ones, so a little air of mystery is no bad thing. Give them an idea of what to wear to help them out, but the rest can be a surprise if you’re into that sort of thing.

Do something a little different

Some typical date night ideas include:

  • A trip to the cinema
  • Drinks
  • Dinner
  • A gig

But let’s face it, there’s nothing ground-breaking there, right? It’s a little ‘been there, done that.’ Doing something a little different is sure to impress and is the perfect excuse for the both of you to have some fun.

This is why Urban Playground is one of the best things to do in Manchester on a date. There’s mini-golf, your chance to take on The CUBE and a buzzing bar and restaurant. We’re giving you everything you need to try something a bit different on your date.

As one of the newest Manchester bars, you’ll win some brownie points for knowing all the hottest places to go.

Make sure there’s good food

A key part of any date night is, of course, the food. Even if everything else doesn’t go to plan, some good food can save the day, although we hope it doesn’t come to that!

If you’re looking for places to eat in Manchester, it’s time you paid a visit to THE BUTCHER. With restaurants in Ibiza, Amsterdam and Berlin, it was only a matter of time before THE BUTCHER found its way to Manchester. Burgers are always a winner, and you’ll find plenty of tasty choices on the rather large menu at THE BUTCHER.

Just don’t forget your table manners – they can make or break a date!

Keep it all under one roof

Now, we all know that the British weather can be adventurous at times. But nothing can rain on the date parade more than a downpour or yet another windy storm. Make things easy for you and your date by keeping everything under one roof. That’s why Urban Playground is ideal. After experiencing THE CUBE Live, you can go grab some food at THE BUTCHER, play mini-golf at Putters and then enjoy drinks at the bar. You can even make the most of people watching as other people take on THE CUBE. Sounds like many dates in one if you ask us!

Throw yourself into it

The best way to make the most of a date is to throw yourself into it. Everyone can feel a little uncomfortable on a date, but if you make a promise to yourself to have fun and enjoy it, what can go wrong? Even if things don’t pan out, you’ll have still had a great night, so it’s a win-win situation really.

A date night packed with activities, cool surroundings and a little competitive spirit makes for the best date ever, so if you’re looking for some inspiration, check out Urban Playground.
