Quirky date ideas
Whether you’re looking to go on a date or just a day out with your friends, Edinburgh has plenty of quirky places that won’t disappoint and leave you with lasting memories...
If you’re looking to try something new and fun, get yourself to World of Illusions. You will get the chance to see the world through 5 different ventures and over 100 different illusions where nothing is what it seems.
This one goes out to the coffee and cat lovers where you’ll get the chance to get a spot of brunch or afternoon tea with the company of adorable cats. This cafe is perfect for a coffee date (with a twist) and won’t cost you much.
A holiday getaway may not quite be in your budget but that’s okay because this garden is in the top 3 of Japanese gardens in the UK. It’s a perfect place for a stroll and a good chat whilst getting a little bit of exercise too.
You can’t go wrong with cocktails especially in a hidden location like this one! You’ll find the bar behind a bookcase inside a 'barbers'. So, if you see this barbershop, you’ve made it!

Panda & Sons may look like an old barbers from the outside, so unless you’re looking for it, you may just walk right past without a second thought. It is,however, a secret cocktail bar. Once you go through the door and down the stairs, there is a bookcase. Now all you have to do, is figure out how to get through the secret door 😉 you’ll find panda and sons at the end of Queen’s street. (SWIPE LEFT)
As uni work starts to pile up, sometimes you just need to get out and have a laugh. Forget all your worries and enjoy a night at the comedy club, whether it's a first date or third, you can't go wrong with a comedy club date night.
All that’s left to do now is ask someone to come with you, there’s no way they could say no to these colourful ideas.
