Coventry – a perfect place for couples

Coventry - a perfect place for couples

When it comes to the perfect date night, Coventry is the right place for couples to spend an evening. There are beautiful bars for cocktails and drinks, great restaurants for a bite to eat, and lovely places to stay in the city, as well as extra treats from live theatres performances to concerts and events.

Here are some ideas for the perfect date night in Coventry, whether it’s a quiet meal and some drinks you’re after or something a bit different.

Date night drinks

If you’re after a few date night drinks in Coventry, there are plenty of options. Enjoy cocktails at some of the city’s big chains in Broadgate, including The Botanist or Turtle Bay, or head to Coventry’s independents including Dhillon’s Spire Bar or The Telegraph Hotel’s bar.

If a quiet pint is more your thing, Coventry has plenty of historic pubs. Find a cosy corner at The Old Windmill on Spon Street, or check out the ‘Donkey Box’ at The Town Wall Tavern, a traditional pub close to the Belgrade Theatre that can boast Sir Ian McKellen among its previous visitors.

Dinner for two

If you want to be transported to foreign climes right in the heart of Coventry, book into one of the city’s many restaurants showcasing cuisine from around the world. From right here in Coventry you can try everything from Japanese ramen to Korean barbecue, Turkish dishes, sushi, traditional Cantonese, hand-pulled noodles and more.

Among the city’s independent restaurants and big-name brands, you’ll find burgers, French cuisine, Caribbean treats, Mexican food, modern British and more. If afternoon tea is your thing, the Telegraph Hotel’s Forme & Chase restaurant will serve you one in the former newspaper building, or you can try ‘Tales of Tea’ in the unique setting of the Undercroft at St Mary’s Guildhall.

Make a night of it

If you’re coming to Coventry to spend time with a loved one, why not stay over and extend the time together? The Telegraph Hotel is the perfect place for couples, with a range of rooms and even a luxury suite complete with hot tub.

You can also snuggle up in one of the city’s unique buildings transformed into bespoke accommodation by Historic Coventry Trust. Book into one of the Lychgate cottages on Priory Row or one of the city’s gatehouses for an overnight stay to remember, immersed in Coventry’s history combined with boutique style and facilities.

Get involved in activities together

If your perfect date involves doing something fun together, there’s plenty on offer in Coventry. Culture vultures can take in a show or play at one of the city’s theatres, while music-lovers can enjoy a gig or night out at one of Coventry’s many music venues. If art’s your thing, a trip to the Herbert Art Gallery should be on your agenda.

For something a bit more light-hearted, take each other on beer pong or axe throwing at Boom Battle Bar, or why not try an escape room at Escape Reality. The Skydome is great for dates, complete with cinema, casino, and bars.

Whether it’s a first date or some much-needed time together, Coventry is the perfect place for couples. Your biggest problem will be fitting everything in in one date!
