This Friday I have a first date, in London. I really like the girl so obviously want it to go well, however I probably did a wrongen' in suggesting a Friday night - as it will likley be busy everywhere which isn't very nice, and come become uncomfortable, right? Nothin could be worse than leaving her alone for twenty minutes whilst I fight to get a drink at a bar!

So I'm writing to get advise from anybody who may have been in similar situations recently? What bars would you reccomend which are nice inside, where the background music is minimal and you can hear every word of conversation, and where it wont be busy!

Thanks

Assuming it is this coming Friday then even worse as it's the opening ceremony of the Olympics and London will be heaving with even more tourists! I'd steer well clear of the main tourist spots, in fact I'd steer well clear of London full stop!

Yeah, good luck with that in central London! I'd suggest going either a bit Norf or Sarf to avoid it. There's a bar called Imbibe, which is very close to Southwark station, and it's just shy of the river. http://www.imbibe-bar.com/ It'll be full of office-types, but they'll clear by about 7.30ish. Nice place, and they usually have some half-decent music playing...not the shitty pop-dance stuff a lot of places play.

I assume there'll be some sort of firework display as part of the opening ceremony, so perhaps finding a decent outdoor viewing area and take a picnic blanket, some booze, something to play music on and some snacks is an option.

Variety of bars and the like on Upper Street in Islington.

Slim Jims is not bad - the ceiling is decorated with bras!
Also, The Arc which is close by.
