Words By: Lucinda Starr

Sadly, long balmy nights spent lapping up the late afternoon sunshine are well and truly behind us. With the weather cooling down, it’s all too easy to grab the blankets, a bowl of pasta and head straight for the couch.

But, we’re here to help you spice things up. This month, ditch those stale date nights spent at your local Thai joint with a bottle of cheap red. It’s time to try something new. So, here are a few ideas to get you started.

You’re welcome.

Try Bouldering at 9 Degrees

All-You-Can Eat Vegan Nosh and a Film at Govinda’s

Before you jump to conclusions, this one ain't’ your typical “dinner and a movie” affair. This joint is part cinema part vegetarian Indian buffet restaurant, screening art house classics and new releases all year round. Load up on all the dahl soup and kofta balls you can before heading upstairs to their bohemian cinema, kitted out with cushions and reclining couches made for cuddling when the lights go down.
