Date Ideas - Four Thieves

When looking for somewhere to take a date I always say the best thing to do is to take the pressure of the conversation. We cant all sit there and be incredible charming and witty with someone we barely know so having a place with plenty to do is always a good idea. It makes it more about being able to enjoy each others company rather than having the gift of the gab.

The Four Thieves in Clapham Junction certainly has plenty to do! For starters it’s a bar, which is also a pretty sound choice when picking somewhere to take a date. So what to expect from behind the bar? Well you have your classic range of beer, wine, spirits and more, that you would expect from any pub. Although The Four Thieves also have their own on-site brewery where they make some pretty tasty ales. They produce over 1440 pints a week. They make many IPA’s and they even do there own Czech style lager.

Now this where things get interesting, they have their own games room and what a games room it is! Its filled with old school arcade games, mini golf, pinball machines, shooting games and the crème della crème is their mini motor racing. This is where you drive remote controlled cars while sitting in the driver seat. Up to 10 players can play once you have all got your driving licence from the machine. They also have a Virtual Reality simulator which I haven’t had a chance to try it myself, but as the kids are saying, it looks sick! Like I said you want plenty to do on a date and this will keep you going till last orders easily. Just make sure to fill your pockets with change before you go.

The Four Thieves is really a one off pub, which hosts so much, too much to mention in one blog. They have Quiz Nights, Comedy nights included some hilarious Stand Up acts, Music Nights and of course Arcade Nights. There is never a dull moment in this multi level Pub (in more ways than one).

Of course with all these games you will be sure to work up an appetite and The Four Thieves serves some top class grub as well. As you would expect from a bar menu it has all the classics like Burgers and Hot Dogs but they make them The Four Thieves way which I must say is bang on! All their menu has its own twist on the classics and will have you salivating all the way to the bar.

The Four Thieves is probably the most perfect place for a date if ever there was one. The only downside is that it can be pretty busy and no wonder, this popular pub has everything anyone would ever want from a pub.

The beauty of Speed Dating London lies in its no-nonsense approach. You take an equal number of single girls and guys, put them in a room and give them a few minutes to chat with every other member of the opposite sex.

When you get there

Original speed dating events in London normally begin at 7.30pm. You will need to register with our hosts and to begin with they will issue you with a score sheet. This will help you to keep track of the singles that you would like to meet again and perhaps go on a date with. After a short period of mingling, your host for the evening who will run through detailed instructions and give you your starting position if you are a guy or table for the event if you are a girl.

Meet & Mingle

A London speed dating event is split into two halves, each lasting around an hour, there will be an interval at half time of about 15 minutes for speed dating London. You will have between 4 and 5 minutes with each person, after which you need to tick a box on your score sheet - "yes, I would like to meet this person again" or "no. Thanks but no thanks". Or "friend" if you'd like to get to know them platonically. Make sure that you do this after each date to keep track. Afterwards there is an opportunity for everyone to meet and mingle informally - this is often where the real action begins, so make sure you don't disappear too quickly!

Complete your score sheet

After the event you simply tick who you liked on the Original Dating website and the site works about your matches automatically. If the dates you have ticked as a "yes" have reciprocated you have a match. You will be able to view the first names and message them via our site online without revealing your email address until you are ready to. You'll be having proper first dates in no time.
