With Valentine's Day approaching as fast as one of cupid's arrows, we have compiled a list of alternative date nights for couples to enjoy this February at The Square.
Strawberries, chocolates and fizz are popular choices as gifts for Valentine's Day but this year why not offer this as a surprise combination? Kuckoo offers fun cocktail masterclasses where you learn how to create textbook tipples and then enjoy your craftsmanship with your partner.
Furthermore, The Botanist offers alternative classes including ale and gin tasting sessions. Although you need to book for a minimum of six people, it's a great opportunity to get your 'couple' friends together to celebrate the event in style.
Fancy something with a bit of a twist – literally? Lounge to Latino sounds and refresh in the restaurant while live music plays at Cubana. The romance could lead you to the dance floor for a sizzling salsa with your date.
If you are looking for something hot and saucy then book a table at Wagamama or Aagrah for your Valentine. Curries are packed with herbs and spices that are traditionally known for their libido-enhancing and aphrodisiac properties. Opt for dishes prepared with cayenne pepper, fenugreek, saffron and cloves to get the evening off to a smouldering start.
Complete the most romantic day of the year with an overnight stay at Sheffield's only 4-star boutique hotel. A hot-spot for celebrity stays, Leopold Hotel is a modern and luxurious place to whisk a loved one for an amorous adventure away.
