Whether you’re heading on your very first date (no judgment you Tinder dates out there!) or 100th this Valentines Day, choosing somewhere to eat or drink on the most romantic night of the year can be a stressful affair!
Thankfully Oxford Street has a host of perfect spots available to put the ease back into choosing where to go, so you can focus more on what present to buy your loved one.
What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than to head to a restaurant in the famous Selfridges department store. Here’s to hoping for that extra present while ‘accidentally’ walking past the handbags…
Handbag dreams aside, Brasserie of Light is an elegant, Art Deco space that feels as exclusive as the designer labels sold below. The centrepiece of the restaurant is a 24ft crystal encrusted Pegasus statue created especially by Damien Hirst, his largest scale artwork in London. If you are looking for a bit of glitz and glamour this Valentine’s Day Brasserie of Light is the perfect choice.
Gordon Ramsey sure knows how to create a fantastic restaurant with a stellar menu! This stylish Asian Eating House is located in the charming London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square. Featuring Asian small plates and Robata grilled dishes, Lucky Cat also offers a superb selection of Japanese gins and over 50 sakes, alongside wine, beer and whisky. What could be more perfect than a sushi dinner with your loved one this February.
Find yourself in foodie heaven at Market Halls with a whole host of food vendors to choose from. Whether you’re in the mood for homemade pasta with crab, chilli and rocket from Pastio, or some delicious burgers showcasing the true mastery of smokery at HotBox, Market Halls West End sure has something for everyone!
Not only is there a fantastic selection of food, there is also a great array of drinks at the Market Halls Bar that champions independent British-made beers, spirits and soft-drinks. The beers are ever rotating and the cocktail list is short and simple, serving predominantly classics with creative twists made using British craft spirits.
Looking for something extra special this Valentine’s Day? Look no further than Berners Tavern! With help from the Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton, this stunning location has become one of London’s most sought-after restaurant reservations.
Take your pick from Mac & Cheese (Berners Tavern Style), Duck Breast or Lemon Sole and be safe in knowing you will be eating delicious food away from the Valentine’s crowds.
Planning on cooking a romantic meal in and then heading out for some cocktails instead? Well, the Churchill Bar & Terrace, located inside the Hyatt Regency Hotel, has the answer! This stylish cocktail bar offers craft cocktails, many made with their very own Sacred Churchill Craft Gin, homemade tonics, premium spirits, fine wines and of course all the classics.
Inside you’ll find luxe art deco décor, bookshelves curated by Daunt Books and original photographs and love letters between Sir Winston Churchill & his beloved wife Clementine adorning the walls, alongside the famous Jock, Rufus, and Pig!
No need to give you any more reason to head to Oxford Street on the 14th February!
