Whether you’ve been struck with cupids bow or just enjoy celebrating national holidays with loved ones, Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for a date night! With the expansion of tradition, we’re able to celebrate Palentine’s, Galentine’s and Valentine’s. Regardless of who you spend the day with, the trend is now being able to give time to your loved ones, and express your love with an experience, rather than as well as roses. Being madly romantic, we’ve put our top date ideas together for you to enjoy this Valentine’s Day, the Eclectic way.

Movie nights make for the ultimate date night, getting engrossed in a gripping storyline, cosying up with a blanket and sweet treats galore. They’re perfect for after work dates with friends, first dates, 30th dates and quiet Friday nights.  Why not rewrite the rules for the classic cinema experience and treat yourself to a night at the most luxurious screening room in town.  Join us at King Street Townhouse for our feel-good Valentine's Day film pick and enjoy a glass of rosé champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries, popcorn and a blanket to get extra snuggly in your individual sumptuous seat.

Nothing says romance like a rooftop.  Views over the city, cocktails by candlelight, the most soothing ambience and impeccable company.  We just so happen to have that very setting available for you to enjoy this Valentine’s Day – fancy that!  Pick a companion and head over to the Rooftop Lounge & Playground at Great John Street to share an evening of total bliss.  Sip rosé champagne out on the terrace, enjoy cocktails by the bar or avoid February’s chill and enjoy a cosy pit-stop & bottle of wine by the fire.  Whether you decide to start the night with Rooftop views to ignite the romance, or decide on a Valentine’s nightcap, the seductive setting of our Rooftop Lounge & Playground is the perfect spot to celebrate your love. This year, no bookings are required; just experience the atmosphere and intimacy of our candlelit 3rd floor space.

One sinful date that’s worth the indulgence is the classic restaurant meal.  Sharers, tastings, or the traditional 3-courses are all enhanced with the perfect setting and special company.  Mark the occasion properly with a trip to the New York inspired Tavern at King Street Townhouse.  Cosy booths, soft lighting, 4-courses, a glass of rosé champagne to start and the best wine menu in town for an optional pairing with your meal.  Something’s missing? Why not book an overnight stay while you’re there so you can enjoy the city’s first infinity pool!

However and whoever you spend the big day with, if you’re in Manchester be sure to involve Eclectic (and rosé champagne) in your plans!
