Hoxton Hotel, Hoxton
Roaring fires, deep comfy Chesterfield sofas and original brickwork – sound like somewhere deep in the British countryside? Look a little closer though, and you’ll notice that they’ve got the latest in fashionable cocktails on the menu and lots of London’s trend-setters at the bar. Much more than your average hotel bar and restaurant, The Hoxton Grill is fun, pressure-free dating at its best.
It gave eHarmony’s Rachael and Edward a great start too – “When I arrived he had a cocktail waiting for me and once I started drinking he explained it was called The Hoxton Love Potion,” says Rachael. They’ve stopped serving the Love Potion now, so you’ll have to go one step further – ask one of their experienced cocktail makers to create one especially for your date. And the great thing about online dating is that you’ll be able to find out their favourite flavours without giving the game away.
Line your stomach before hitting the bar – book a booth in their restaurant area and treat yourself to one of their indulgent dinners. With St. Louis pork ribs, blackened salmon or a spicy bean burger for veggies – they’ve certainly got the American grill thing down. And if you’re lucky enough to pick a day with sunshine, they’ve got a garden too.
If you end up falling in love, there’s a hotel upstairs with eight concept rooms for a boutique anniversary weekend.
Breakfast, brunch, dinner or drinks – whatever date you fancy you can book your table (or room) on their website – www.hoxtonhotels.com.
