Your business in London is done and you’ve got some precious time on your hands to spend with that special someone. You’ve picked out your ‘killer’ outfit, styled yourself with no expense spared and now you (and your butterflies) are ready to meet your ‘plus-one’. But how do you sweep your new love interest off their feet and make sure your first date together in London’s ‘swinging city’ isn’t your last?
If you’re a high-flyer in London and on the lookout for love, you won’t want to settle for anything but the most refined venue for your first romantic rendezvous, because first impressions last. In our quest to find London’s most exquisite first date experiences, Luxury Lifestyle Magazine sought the advice of Prestige Arrangements; an upmarket dating and luxury experience portal for elite singles as well as providing exclusive access to the guest lists of top class events and venues.
