5 Fun Valentine’s Date Ideas in Leeds

With Valentine’s Day almost upon us, it’s a wonderful chance to celebrate those you love. Many people will go traditional and spoil each other with a cosy table for two, and when we think about the most romantic restaurants in Leeds, Victoria Leeds lovers are always in for a treat. The Ivy, The Cut & Craft or Fourth Floor Brasserie by Harvey Nichols are an obvious choice to delight your amour, whilst The Ivy Asia undoubtedly delivers a showstopping visual experience like no other, with Far-Eastern fare to match.

But for those who prefer a more laid-back approach to this passion-infused day, Victoria Leeds has so many hidden secret places for a romantic treat in the city, that you don’t need to book in advance.

Feast your heart-shaped eyes on these adorable date spots for some informal, loved-up fun:

A gelato rose, just for you
Nothing says I love you more than a single rose – in gelato form! A true taste of the finest Italian gelato, Amorino provides the perfect laid-back spot under the dramatic glass atrium of Victoria Gate to enjoy each other’s company. Perfect if you’re on a quick lunch break, but we’re not convinced you’ll want to share, no matter how much you like each other!

Scent for Two
People who discover together, stay together. Join Jo Malone London in-store for a ‘Scent for Two’ fragrance discovery session. Lasting around 30 minutes, learn all about the art of fragrance and layering to find a unique scent combination that works just for you. Whether you’re a couple or a best friend duo, sessions are complimentary and are available until 14th February.

Morning Coffee and Treats in the Med
Close your eyes and transport your better half to the edge of the glittering Mediterranean Sea for a morning coffee date at Le Ble. Set underneath one of Europe’s largest stained-glass windows, you’ll want to open your eyes again to appreciate all that this Med-inspired bakery in Victoria Quarter has to offer. Take a pew among the blossom trees, where your heart is bound to start racing from just looking at the gorgeously flaky pastries and delectable desserts. However will you choose?

Champagne and Glamorous Cakes
Want your night to sparkle? Look no further than the Harvey Nichols Fourth Floor Bar, where the finest Champagnes are poured and the most devilish cakes devoured. It’s a relaxed, but oh-so indulgent experience that sets the tone for a glamorous evening of fun and splendour. Who knows where the night may take you?

Turn Up the Love at Boom Battle Bar Leeds
If you’re meeting afterwork for some Valentine’s Day drinks, head to Boom Battle Bar on George Street for its special Valentine’s cocktail to mark the occasion – the mouthwatering Watermelon and Chambord Margarita priced at £8.75. Walk in and soak up the atmosphere, where they may have availability on some of the games. To secure the fun, book ahead and make a night of it. For the more organised among us, the Boom Battle team have also launched Date Nights from 12th – 15th February; choose from Love Shack at £15pp, which includes a round of Crazier Golf and a Valentine’s Day Cocktail; or Going Out Out at £35pp, for five drinks and a Street Food Feast.
