Pauls, RSJ on Coin Street has been offering an unfussy escape from the Southbank and great food for years, and Skylon, on the first floor of the Royal Festival Hall, offers the best views for a romantic drink anywhere along the river.4 | Shoreditch Nearest tubes: Liverpool Street / Shoreditch Highstreet (Rail) Perfect for: Live music / dancing Zigfrid Von Underbelly Forget the sneering stereotypes about hipsters on penny farthings, London's former coolest area (a dubious honour that now goes to Peckham, probably) has some of the best nightlife in London.A glass of plonk in Dean Street Townhouse, a margarita in El Camion (Brewer Street) or some late night jazz at Ain't Nothin But… Make a great first impression by meeting at the Charlotte Street Hotel, where you can sit on a cozy sofa in the back room and get to know each other in peace (the front dining area near the street gets a little noisy).For the sake of your wallet (and to find somewhere a bit livelier), you may want to head over the road next to cocktail bar Bourne & Hollingsworth (Rathbone Place).You might want a cocktail or a glass of wine before dining.If so we recommend the Blind Pig on Poland Street (above the Social Eating House), which pairs a luxurious but informal setting with genuinely inventive drinks menu, or Mark's Bar on Brewer Street which is cool, relaxed and makes the best negronis around.From there head North towards Old Street and, if you can, stop for a drink in Nightjar (City Road), the wildly popular bar where the cocktail list is so extensive it's divided into historical eras.From there, head east to Callooh Callay Bar (Rivington Street), a Lewis Carroll-inspired bar that is cosy and slightly disturbing (in the best possible sense) at the same time.
Or if tucking into a perfect steak is more you and your partner's idea of good dining, pop over the road to unpretentious Argentinian eatery Gaucho. Technically in Mayfair but a mere hop, skip and a jump away from Soho is Blades at Hush, a small, 60's inspired dining room that aims to be a 'private member's club without the membership'.If gin's your thing, try Graphic Bar on Golden Square - their martini selection is second to none and their 'Paint Tin Punches' will get your night off with a bang. Slightly off the beaten track on Rupert Street is the hottest new table in town The Palomar, where interesting, delicious food from Jerusalem is served by energetic, friendly staff who create a brilliant atmosphere – perfect for a first date you want to be fun and memorable (with no space for awkward silences). If you can't can't get a table there, you're still spoiled for choice when it comes to established restaurants of the highest quality.
