London Date Idea: 6 Quirky Events at Drink Shop and Do Kings Cross

Looking for something a bit different from your next date night? It’s lucky you found us… We’ve been out touring the town (all in the name of research, of course) and can finally confirm what we always suspected to be true: London is the best place to be for quirky and fun date night activities.

From Lego Robot ice-breakers to rolling your sleeves up and getting crafty, we’ve rounded up five of our favourite date ideas guaranteed to win major brownie points!


Bring along your significant other or buddy up with someone new and experience the #LegoRobots phenomenon for yourself! Build your own Bot, give it a name and a special set of skills, then win a whole set of awesome prizes if the folks at Drink, Shop & Do judge yours as the best. Sound stressful? Fear not – your opponents will be bricking it too. Free to take part with a drink!


If you’re looking for an ice-breaker event with a playful twist, you’ll want to hear all about the games night for daters that’s taking London by storm right now. Jenga Dating brings a whole host of fun, like-minded people together in some great venues around the city for drinks, mingling and easy-going vibes. You might not meet ‘the one’ but you’ll definitely meet all sorts of interesting new people along the way.


Are you the creative type? Great. Don’t have a crafty bone in your body? Even better – stepping out of your comfort zone and trying something different is a sure-fire way to impress, right? London is home to all kinds of crafty classes and wondrous workshops that are ideal for your next date. Grace du Prez’s 3-D Pen Printing, Bookbinding for Beginners with Amber Cooper-Davies and Cross Stitching with Mr X Stitch himself are three of our favourites nailing it right now.


Think a fun quiz night, game show and dance party rolled into one and you’re somewhere close. Best enjoyed with a couple of drinks and loads of inflatable props (fancy dress is also massively encouraged) some of our favourites on the scene right now include Indeedy Musical Bingo and Sounds Familiar – which you can find in residency across London. You will end up dancing on the furniture, and you will be ridiculously hungover at work the next day – but it’s a fun and vibrant date night you won’t forget in a hurry.


Now, we’re not really the betting type. But we’d definitely wager that you’ve never experienced a night out quite like the London Spelling Bee. A sell-out sensation that’s as much a cracker of a night out with your mates as it is a fun date night idea, you can expect everything from the Queen’s English to straight-up profanities and Urban Dictionary lingo here. Enjoy the action with a drink or have a crack at winning the title yourself!


Drink Shop and Do is located just around the corner from Kings Cross station and has great London date ideas happening 7 days a week.
