Whether you’re planning a date night with your partner or a night out with your girlfriends, these are our top picks in London to celebrate National Girlfriend Day in style. Keep reading to see the cute, the cosy, the rooftop, the club and the restaurant we’re desperate to try…
“The Cute” – Saint Aymes, Hyde Park, 59 Connaught Street W2 2BB
Saint Aymes is a gorgeous café serving a wide variety of sugary sweet goodness. Perfect for those Saturday Brunch vibes! It’s a black owned, female led and family run business, created by sisters Lois and Michela Wilson. An idyllic location, with gorgeous food and beverages, perfect for the aesthetic Instagram feed we all crave.
“The Cosy” – Caravan, Kings Cross, 1 Granary Square, London N1C 4AA
Coffee? Lunch? Drinks & Dinner? Whatever’s on your mind, Caravan does it all – The King’s Cross location is on our list to get to ASAP because the décor is super cosy and gives all the relaxing vibes. We’ve heard the signature Chickpea Dahl dish is excellent!
“The Rooftop” – Bar Elba, Waterloo, Rooftop Mercury House, 109-117 Waterloo Rd, London SE1 8UL
Are you after stunning views of London and a down to earth, fun place to drink with your friends? We think Bar Elba’s the place for you. They announce on their Instagram story daily about their secret Happy Hour deals, so from one day to the next we never know what it’s going to be! We love being kept on our toes!
“The Club” – Barrio, Soho, 6 Poland Street W1F 8PS
Perfect for a boogie, this basement dance floor provides all you need when you’re itching to bust a move on date night. If you’ve got two left feet you’re not to worry, anybody can dance at Barrio’s! Barrio Soho celebrates the vibrancy, excitement and zest of Latin flavours. If you go before us, we’ll be jealous.
“The Restaurant” – Mowgli, Soho, 5 Charlotte St., London W1T 1RE
The PERFECT setting. Swing on your chairs – literally - and stare longingly across the table at your loved one under a canopy of fairy lights (hundreds of them). Not to mention the mouth-watering Indian street food menu on offer, plus cocktails-galore… we don’t know about you, but we’re booking it right now!
This National Girlfriend Day requires makeup that will last all day and night, so why not try our Fresh Face Setting Spray in Fixation or our Ready, Set, Smooth Translucent Powder! If you’re a red lip queen through and through, try out our No Filter Lip Kit in Red Carpet and suddenly your date night red lip just got ten times better – seal in with our Pout Protect Lip Setter for a bold lip that will last all evening! For a glossy finishing touch, try our Birthday Edition That’s Swell! XXL Extreme Lip Plumper in Birthday Cake for a delicious pout 😉
