Casual, short-term couples: Hogarths

It’s no Tipple, but it’s better than Spoons. Just enough to keep you distracted from having the ‘what are we?’ conversation.

Sickly loved-up couples: Crypt

Hidden below the Royal Kings Arms Hotel, the Crypt is ideal for the more boujie couples that show their love by splashing out the overdraft.

Galentine’s: Tipple

Because there’s nothing like Instagrammable cocktails and a quick game of ping pong to make you forget about that boy from the rugby/football team that screwed you over. Get the gals out and make a night of it.

The ‘I don’t need a girlfriend, I’ve got the boys’ drinkers: Crafty Scholar

The dreadfully single ‘I will drink away the next 24 hours’ drinkers: Hustle

For those that are newly single to those that are facing another year of singledom. It might be a rough Valentine’s day but at least now you’ve got the perfect excuse to go to Hustle without someone questioning your mentality.

The ‘Valentine’s day is just a commercial hype… blah blah” drinkers: The Library

Nobody wants to hear it. Let the singletons get drunk and let the couples be gross.
