GO Dating in London

Dating in Greater London Meeting someone special is difficult enough but in a place as large as London that’s populated by tourists, families and couples, it’s particularly difficult to know where the single folk socialise. And once you’ve met someone special where do you take them on that all-important first date?

The Mac Bar [map] in North West London is known as a trendy wine bar with a local feel and it’s this that may make it your ideal pulling point. On a Sunday you can enjoy a boozy afternoon with your friends checking out the talent, then on Saturday night you can go in for the kill. Of course, the downside is that if the relationship turns sour before it has really begun you’re going to have to deal with the possible awkwardness of bumping into each other at the bar. Oh well no one said dating was going to be easy.

If you want your new partner to be a one of the fashionable Hoxton set then head for Hoxton Square, North West London. The bars and restaurants here should offer you several options from the typically trendy Trafik [map] to the minimalist cool of the Shoreditch Electricity Rooms.

Bluu [map] is also in Hoxton but lacks the pretentiousness you may find in other bars in the area. Finding a potential mate in here may give you the best of both worlds, someone who looks good but doesn’t break the bank trying too hard.

Get in a romantic atmosphere before you even choose your date for the evening by wandering into Jerusalem [map], Britton Street, WC1. With low lighting created by candelabras there is definitely an air of seduction about this place. Enjoy a meal or choose from one of many drinks offers and give yourself some courage to approach members of the opposite sex.

Alternatively, find your Mediterranean match by sashaying along to Costa Dorada [map], Hanway Street, W1. Located just across the road from the Tottenham Court underground station, Costa Dorada is a real feel-good venue and is a favourite with hen and stag parties which means there’s plenty of single people getting worried about being left on the shelf.

Fancy your chances with a rich London celebrity? Then head to Cecconi’s [map], Burlington Gardens, W1, for the place where the stars hang out. Enjoy some excellent bar nibbles and then enjoy the novelty of staff preparing a drink to meet your exact specifics. This place is very cool and you’ll impress any date you bring here, even if you don’t end the evening by stepping into a celebrity's limo.

If you’re looking for some Sex And The City style in your prospective partner, head to Ling Ling [map], Hanway Place, W1, for the best cocktails in West London. Ling Ling is a bar located within the Hakkasan Restaurant, so you really can wine and then dine someone in style. If all else fails this is also a great place to celebrate being single.
