1.Crazy Golf

What is it: No longer confined to cheap seaside resorts, crazy golf is just one of many formerly tacky activities to be hipsterfied. And as with the majority of hipster things, it’s now entered the mainstream. Today’s urban crazy golf sites are trendy locations where millennials hang out and business-people attempt to be down with the kids.

Do: Play properly. Everyone wants a decent game so don’t let your date win - but remember crazy golf is meant to be a laugh.

Don’t: Get too competitive and go off in a huff if, despite your prowess when it comes to real golf, your skills fail to shine at crazy golf.

Top tip: Short skirts and stilettos may be sexy but they’re probably a bad choice when it comes to smashing the patriarchy on the golf course.


What is it: Exactly what it sounds like, but in an urban, often underground, trendy venue, with music, food and drink. Book a session and make a night of it. You may or may not have to dodge flying balls over the course of the evening.

Do: Have a drink first. You’ll relax a bit and actually have a chat, because it’s pretty difficult to keep up a conversation while whacking a ping-pong ball across a table.

Don’t: Get too drunk beforehand. You may find your hand-eye coordination severely off as a result.

Top tip: Booking ahead is crucial. Oh, and as everyone’s childhood tennis coach taught them: keep your eyes on the ball.

We tried: Bounce in London, who also do a spectacularly good fun bottomless pizza and prosecco ping-pong brunch. But maybe save that one for when you’re past the first date so you don’t embarrass yourself by getting sloshed.

3.Go Karting

What is it: Like Mario Kart but real life. Pull on some racing overalls, squeeze on a helmet, then race round a track at speeds of up to 40mph. There are various options – a Grand Prix format will see you go head to head with a bunch of other competitors. It’s more fun but also more intense, as overtaking is frequent. A nicer date alternative is time trials, with the racer with the fastest lap declared the winner.

Do: Get competitive. Unlike many sports and physical activities, there’s no real advantage to being male. That means it’s a pretty level playing field, where you can both show off your competitive streak.

Don’t: Crash into your date. Nothing ruins a romantic night out than an argument over your dodgy overtaking skills.

Top tip: Steadiness over speed is key. If you can keep your steering gentle and your speed consistent, you’ll soon overtake the reckless racers who’ve oversteered themselves into a mess. Think tortoise and hare.

4.Wine Tasting

What is it: Find a wine bar that lets you charge up a payment card to sample endless taster measures for a couple of quid each. You can pull up the tasting notes for each wine on your phone and challenge each other to pick out each note, or explore the world of wine with some blind tastings together to find your favourite.

Do: Be open minded. The world of wine does not begin and end with the Cabernet Sauvignon that you always order. You’re sampling – so get creative and adventurous with your selections.

Don’t: Pretend to know more than you really do. There’s no shame in knowing very little about something but wanting to know more, but you will sound like a prize plonker if you try to blag sounding like a wine pro.

Top tip: Use all of your senses. According to Wine Enthusiast magazine, you should be looking at it straight on, from the side, on its side, then watch it swirl. When you smell it, try to isolate each aspect that you’re registering; is it fruity, herby, spicy, or earthy? The potential goes on and on. When you taste it, there’s more to it than just deciding whether you like it or not – try to decide whether it’s balanced, complex, harmonious and complete.

5.Cooking Class

What is it: Is your current squeeze a domestic god or goddess, or a kitchen nightmare? There’s a simple way to find out, which doubles up as a date too. There are loads of professional kitchens across the UK that offer lessons in knocking up everything from a simple dish, to a three-course meal. You’ll learn a few things about your partner, as well as food prep; how they cope under pressure, their attention to detail.

Do: Follow instructions. Most of the cooking classes we’ve tried after aimed at beginners, so if you follow the lead chef’s instructions to the letter, you’re likely to create something Instagram-worthy.

Don’t: Drop the plate. We’ve seen plenty of intrepid cooks conquering their kitchen nervousness, only to drop or spill their perfectly plated pile of grub. Not a good look.

Top tip: Pair the type of cooking class to the vibe you’re trying to achieve. If you want to look like a butch hunter gatherer, something involving a bit of butchery could do the trick. If you’re trying to look romantic, a cake-making lesson where you can etch your loved ones name on top with icing may be a better shout.
