With Autumn officially beginning this weekend, and the colder nights drawing in, here are some alternative date ideas to keep you out of the cold and feeling the love this season. Featuring your favourite gin bar - Ginjams Bournemouth!
Gin has been the drink of 2018 so far, and it doesn’t show signs of passing on the baton anytime soon. With the days getting shorter and a definite chill in the air, it’s time to bring the gin out of the beer gardens and into the warmth. What better way to try some new varieties than with a fun and educational tasting? Ginjams bournemouth, based in Westbourne, just a short walk or bus ride from the centre of Bournemouth, have gin tasting events scheduled in every Tuesday this autumn. Why not head along and try some of their impressive collection of gins from around the globe? Feeling peckish? The tasting also includes a selection of cheese, meats and chutneys to graze on. The perfect alternative date night activity, sure to be an ice breaker!
Feast on Fondue
Once popular in the eighties, this rather retro dining craze is making its comeback. At Ginjams you can choose from either chocolate or cheese for your fondue and pair it with gin or wine to make for a truly delicious evening. Booking is suggested as this is sure to be popular, especially with those cold nights drawing in. Cosy up at a table for two and enjoy this romantic alternative to a sit down dinner.
Give Wine Tasting a Go
Don’t let the name fool you, as well as gin, Ginjams also have an impressive selection of wines on offer. Why not go along on a Wednesday and try out their wine tasting. With a selection of eight wines from around the world, along with some food to compliment, they have your next date sorted!
Try out a Pudding Club
Yes, you read that right. As well as gin, Ginjams are making a name for themselves with fantastic, totally moreish but healthy puddings and you can try them out with their monthly pudding club, run by Louise from Food for Thought Cookery School. Taste three delicious puddings each month in a relaxed and intimate atmosphere, with the option to pair your drink to the desserts - the ultimate date night treat, and suitable for all as the desserts are made without dairy, refined sugar or gluten.
Listen to Live Music
These days, with music available to stream in an instant, onto your phone or laptop, it can be all too easy to avoid listening to actual live music. Ginjams host live music nights with artists and musicians performing in an intimate venue whilst you enjoy drinks from the bar, which provides the perfect chilled out date for music lovers.
With plenty on offer, Ginjams is the place to go for a date night with a difference this autumn. Whether you live in Southbourne, Christchurch, Poole or Bournemouth, Ginjams
is close to major transport links. Plus, as a dog friendly venue, you can even bring along your four legged friends. See you at the bar!
