The perfect place for couples…
When it comes to the perfect date night, Coventry is the right place for couples to spend an evening. There are beautiful bars for cocktails and drinks, great restaurants for a bite to eat, and lovely places to stay in the city, as well as extra treats from live theatres performances to concerts and events.
Here are some ideas for the perfect date night in Coventry, whether it’s a quiet meal and some drinks you’re after or something a bit different.
Date night drinks
Whether you fancy a cocktail, glass of wine or romantic meal, the list is long. For pre-or-post-theatre food and drink near the Belgrade Theatre, there’s Rodizio Rico, or the theatre’s very own Nineteen 58 bar. For a stunning setting, check out Generators, the rooftop bar at the brand-new Telegraph Hotel or Dhillon’s Spire Bar, nestled in Christchurch Spire. You could also try Dhillon’s recently-opened sports bar, the Sky Blue Tavern. The latest addition to Coventry’s nightlife is FOMO – an Instagrammable bar offering original cocktails, pan-Asian inspired food, DJs and more.
Dinner for two
Coventry has plenty of options for a dinner date, from fine dining right down to more casual offerings. For something unique, head to Coventry Dining Club at FarGo Village, where chef Tony Davies serves up tasting menus of refined meals based on his years of experience in top restaurants.
If you want to be transported to foreign climes right in the heart of Coventry, book into one of the city’s many restaurants showcasing cuisine from around the world. From right here in Coventry, you can try everything from Japanese ramen to Korean barbecue, Turkish dishes, sushi, traditional Cantonese, hand-pulled noodles and more.
Among the city’s independent restaurants and big-name brands, you’ll find burgers, French cuisine, Caribbean treats, Mexican food, modern British and more. If afternoon tea is your thing, the Telegraph Hotel’s Forme & Chase restaurant will serve you one in the former newspaper building, or you can try ‘Tales of Tea’ in the unique setting of the Undercroft at St Mary’s Guildhall.
Make a night of it
If you’re coming to Coventry to spend time with a loved one, why not stay over and extend the time together? The Telegraph Hotel is the perfect place for couples, with a range of rooms and even a luxury suite complete with hot tub.
You can also snuggle up in one of the city’s unique buildings transformed into bespoke accommodation by Historic Coventry Trust. Book into one of the Lychgate cottages on Priory Row or one of the city’s gatehouses for an overnight stay to remember, immersed in Coventry’s history combined with boutique style and facilities.
Get involved in activities together
If your perfect date involves doing something fun together, there’s plenty on offer in Coventry. Culture vultures can take in a show or play at one of the city’s theatres, while music-lovers can enjoy a gig or night out at one of Coventry’s many music venues including Draper’s Hall or HMV Empire.
For something a bit more light-hearted, Boom Battle Bar offers everything from axe-throwing to beer pong and augmented reality darts for a fun day or night out. The latest addition to the city is PLAYERS, a new multi-purpose entertainment venue in the city centre, featuring a stunning bar and space for 500 people, as well as 20 sumptuous private hire rooms for any occasion, perfect for watching live sports, birthday celebrations and work parties.
Whether it’s a first date or some much-needed time together, Coventry is the perfect place for couples. Your biggest problem will be fitting everything in in one date!
