Miss Macaroon counter


Are you looking to go beyond the usual "romantic gift ideas" to impress that special someone? Here are the 3 best alternative local date ideas in Birmingham for those who are bored of the norm.


Date 1- Quench your thirst at Miss Macaroon.


Head down to the Miss Macaroon shop, based in the Great Western Arcade to enjoy a glass of prosecco and macaroons with your Valentine. With up to 30 flavours, you and your companion will definitely be spoilt for choice! Why not buy a heart shaped macaroon, available in raspberry & white chocolate or rose & vanilla. All of the macaroons are gluten free, handmade locally and fund training for unemployed young people.


Date 2- Test your compatibility with a challenge.


Escape Live! has finally come to Birmingham. Work as a team of 2-6 people and be locked in a mysterious room. Together you must solve various tasks and find clues to puzzles that will help you escape. There are four different rooms to choose from and you will have 60 minutes to find a way out. It's a fantastic way of creating some lasting memories with your loved one and even get to know them better.


Date 3- Dance the night away.

Why not try something completely different? A Northern Soul dance class will get both your bodies moving and will make your evening memorable. Northern Soul is a music and dance movement born in the 60’s. It had been adopted by the British mod scene, focusing on a particular style of black American soul music and has finally made a comeback. It's a mix of ballet, karate and breakdancing. If that sounds like your thing, then get down to the specially sprung dance floor in Digbeth. Dance classes take place every Wednesday at The Night Owl in Digbeth. It's ideal for beginners and only £5 to get in!
