Valentine’s Hot Spots


As the most romantic time of the year swiftly beckons, treat that special someone at one of the Leeds’ best date-appropriate destinations.


Everyman Cinema
If you want to go down the traditional date route, yet still deliver a generous dose of romance, pay a visit to Everyman Cinema at Trinity Leeds.


A revolving selection of must-see films are screened regularly, so you can easily choose something that you’ll both enjoy. You won’t have to worry about dining beforehand either – the venue is equipped with a delicious restaurant in which food can also be tucked into during your viewing. Why not plump for pizza instead of popcorn?


With each state-of-the-art auditorium complete with luxury sofa seating, individual footrests, tables, and wine coolers, the unique cinema-going experience will transform into a date to remember.




If you’re seeking a change this year and don’t want to gravitate towards any clichéd Valentine’s concepts, choose an activity that provides a rewarding experience for you and your loved one.


Sukhothai’s masterclasses represent an unusual evening out – or even an alternative gift idea – in which you’ll be taught the fine art and skill of cooking delicious Thai cuisine.


The classes are hosted by one of the popular dining establishment’s top Thai chefs who will be assisted by other members of the experienced team who will lead you to success.


As well as rustling up a starter and main course each, you can take the time to enjoy your creations afterwards, along with other refreshments – retaining the romantic sentiment of the day.




Yorkshire Hire Cruisers
If you’re feeling bombarded with pressure to pull out all the stops this Valentine’s Day, and want to make a special gesture, then explore the region’s water-based surroundings with assistance from Yorkshire Hire Cruisers.


Hop aboard and take a trip along Leeds’ historic waterways, seeing the city from a whole new angle.


To further enhance the date, a plethora of menu options are at hand for you to tuck into, be it a traditional afternoon tea or sumptuous themed feast.


The boat also transforms into an inspiring party venue, featuring a well-stocked bar, in addition to music and a DJ. It might be worth enlisting your friends and marking the celebration together.




Roxy Lanes
A competitive atmosphere between a couple isn’t necessary a bad thing – especially when the root of it is a fun-packed game of bowling!


Attracting droves of people with its unusual offerings – fusing together a bar and the popular activity – Roxy Lanes will challenge the pre-conceived notion of what a date should be. And as an added bonus, it won’t break the bank.

Make the most of the evening with your loved one by sampling some of the American-themed snacks, including an assortment of burgers, and toast your relationship with one of the many cocktails available.


As the evening comes to a close, both your date and budget will be grateful!
