Hotel du Vin, Birmingham



Picture the venue for the perfect dinner – beautiful decor, great food and quick service. So if you’re looking for somewhere special for a first date in Birmingham, you’ll probably be picturing Hotel du Vin.

Once a Victorian Eye Hospital, the grand red brick building that the Hotel now occupies is nothing short of striking – and as we know first impressions last, the Hotel du Vin certainly makes an impressive one.

Next, you’ll be able to chose what kind of dining experience you’d like to go for – informal and British in their Pub du Vin or a little more chic in their Bistro du Vin. Either way, the food is first-class, serving locally sourced and organic produce where possible and priding themselves on their extensive drinks lists. They’ve even got a sommelier on hand to help you pick the perfect wine for your dinner.


“It’s a stunning restaurant,” says Joanna – one half of another eHarmony couple with Stephen. “It was near Christmas when we went and the fountain was frozen outside – they had heat lamps on and we sat there drinking whiskey and wine and warming ourselves up.”

If you feel like celebrating, then The Bubble Lounge – decorated in the style of Venice’s Café Florin and with 30 Champagnes on the menu – is the best place to do it.

Recommended by eHarmony’s Karen, we’re hardly surprised she thinks it’ll be a great place to take your date, as that’s where she once dated her husband. So follow our advice and book your table with a call to 0844 736 4250 or take a peek at their decor on the website –
