Sometimes familiar, chilled out and fun is best when it comes to a first date. So with tasty, home-cooked food, an impressive roster of comedy and music acts and a light and spacious bar, Leicester’s Firebug delivers all that and more.
It’s not just eHarmony’s Hollie that thinks it’s one of Leicester’s dating best, it’s got an impressive selection of awards under its belt too. From the Lonely Planet to the Food and Drink Guide, no one seems to leave the city without giving The Firebug a mention.
The bar evolves as the day goes by, offering a quiet retreat from the city during the day and a dynamic venue for dinner, drinks or a live show after dark. Their cocktails are guaranteed to get the conversation flowing, described by the Metro as ‘adventurous’ when they gave the bar a runner up place in the ‘Best East Midlands Bar’ award. And with a good selection of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free food, (plus a note to say they’re happy to leave anything out if you’re allergic) you don’t need to worry about your date’s potential diet.
More than the relaxed atmosphere and reasonably priced food and drink, the great thing about this bar is that it offers a natural extension to a date that’s going really well. Here dinner can turn into drinks, and even better, into a spot of comedy or live music if you time it right. Open until 2 or 4am, (night depending), you don’t need to worry about being kicked out just when it’s getting good either.
So it’s no surprise then that eHarmony couple Hollie and Simon loved their first date at The Firebug so much they went back again – “The Firebug is my favourite pub,” says Hollie, “we went there for a chilled out dinner – nothing too formal or expensive. And it was also the location of our ‘last meal’ in Leicester before I moved in with him too.”
