Legit Date Ideas – For Valentines and beyond

Valentine’s is fast approaching, and the question of what you should actually do on the big day is becoming more and more pressing. Luckily, the guys at Revolution are here to give us some tips on where to go on a date, because let’s be honest, we need all the inspiration we can get!

Dinner Date

You’re a traditionalist, and for you V-day is all about gazing over the table at your one true love – Food. Revolution offers a sociable way to eat, and you can order a number of small plates and bar snacks to have while you’re sipping your cocktails and bonding with your date over your love of all things delish. Alternatively, order a massive, three course feast and even if you and your date have nothing to say to each other, it won’t matter because your mouths will be full the whole time.  

The perfect outfit:

Shop Jeans and a Nice Top

Activity Date


Maybe your dream date doesn’t involve food OR alcohol (babe, we salute you). Why not head out into the great outdoors this Valentine’s Day, and go on a refreshing country walk (extra points if you can tie this in with watching the sunset somewhere pretty). If you want to stay a bit closer to home, why not jump on your bike and cycle round your city. If your date isn’t from your area, then you can give them a tour and take them around the best tourist hotspots – You might even get a chance to do something you’ve never done before.

Day Date

Let’s be honest, is there anything more satisfying than day drinking: Tipsy by mid-afternoon and home by tea-time (probably). The best thing about this kind of date is that you can make it last as long as you want, so if you’re really into them you can extend day drinks into an evening meal and beyond. Show your date some love by ordering Revolution’s Valentine’s cocktail The Love Heartini: A delicious mix of Ketel One vodka, vanilla liqueur and pineapple juice with cranberry, lime and strawberry jam. Served with a raspberry sherbet ‘kiss’ and a teeny tiny tube of Love Hearts pegged to the side. Yum!

The perfect outfit:

Shop Denim

Mate Date


Maybe you’re flying the flag for single ladies, and your Valentine’s is looking more like Galentine’s. You and your girls are spending the night together, because who needs a man when you’ve got each other right? Shake up your usual night out routine, and book in for a Cocktail Masterclass at Revolution. You’ll get the inside scoop learning how to make their delicious cocktails, and yes – You get to drink them too! With the option to add food, this is the perfect way to start your girls BNO in style.
