    "I was told we were going for a romantic dinner, and instead we ended up at Pizza Hut."

    "The bar was so full of loud City boys I couldn't hear anything, and then had to pay £40 for two drinks!"

    "There was a three hour poetry reading...with no interval."

    These tales of dating misadventures are, unfortunately, all too common in our nation's capital. London is ranked the sixth best city in the world to date in, but choosing a location for a date can be tricky. A date can now be anything from spending all night at a Columbian rave to splitting a vegan breakfast buffet. (Yes, those are dates we have actually been on. No, we don't want to talk about it.) So how are you supposed to choose?

    Whether it's a first date with someone you've just swiped right to or an evening out to celebrate your two year anniversary, everyone wants to choose a date night spot where you can relax, enjoy each other's company and let you and your date bond over shared interests. Because that's what dating's for, right?

    Well Londoners, we've got your back. Click through to see our favourite date night spots.
