Six Bristol dates that won't break the bank

Everyone loves that baller pay day feeling when splashing the cash feels easy, and you can treat your loved one to a special luxury evening or day out. But let's be honest here... we all know that's not always possible. 

At Datemakers, we're firm believers that dates don't have to cost the earth. Just because you're tightening your purse strings, it doesn't mean the end of your dating life! 

With payday way beyond the horizon, we set ourselves the challenge to go through all our date ideas and find our favourite experiences that come in at twenty pounds or under. That's just twenty quid to treat your loved one to a unique and exciting date, or a tenner if you're going dutch. 

So here goes, our most affordable dates: 

Coffee tutoring and cake 
Expect to leave West Street Kitchen an expert in all things coffee. You and your partner will be guided through the fundamentals of coffee blending and roasting, get plenty of tasters and then you'll pick your favourite and enjoy a whole cup. No coffee is complete without a slice of home made cake, of course, which is included for you both. 

Stand up comedy and cocktails
This is one of our firm favourites. Head down to Smoke and Mirrors for an evening of up and coming comedic talent, all washed down with a tasty cocktail. 

Yin Yoga for two 
If you want to stretch (hehe) your relationship to the next level, then look no further than this date. Join a class for a relaxed and revitalising hour of yoga and see how many poses you can master!

Alcoholic ice cream for two 
We struggle to think of a better combination that booze and ice cream (even in this weather!). The boys at Brozen Bar will let you each choose a flavour of your choice for you to enjoy in their city centre bar. 

Pickled Brisket for two 
Try not to drool at the photos of these sarnies. At Bristol's only salt beef eatery, you and your partner will enjoy a sandwich and a drink each, alongside their homemade kraut, pickled red cabbage and kimchi. 

Valentine's Day ballroom dance class 
We're super excited about this one. This Valentine's, why not take you partner for a spin around the dance floor? You'll both join a fun and relaxed session of other Datemakers couples, learning the fundamentals of Latin and Ballroom dancing. Once you've got the basics down - away you go. And at only £14.00 for two this seems too good an opportunity to miss... 

So there you have it, our six favourite dates on a budget. We know how important it is to spend quality time as a couple - and now you can, regardless of how the bank account is looking. Head to to have a browse through all our date ideas across Bristol and Brighton.
