Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and you might be wondering how to impress a promising new romantic interest, or find a memorable way to celebrate with your partner or spouse. For a fun and atmospheric dining out experience, you will find that a tapas bar in London is difficult to beat.
Here are some great reasons to explore Spanish cuisine this Valentine’s Day.
A sharing experience
Tapas dining is ultimately a social experience, whether you are with a crowd or sharing an intimate meal for two. If you are in the early stages of your relationship, you will never be short of a talking point as you bond over your favourite flavours and dishes. The small sharing plates will bring you together as you discover the delights of Spanish cuisine.
A fun and relaxed ambience
There’s no need to try and impress your date at a stuffy fine dining restaurant. Chances are, you are more likely to be able to relax and enjoy yourself in the informal atmosphere of a Spanish restaurant. Take the pressure off and soak up the Mediterranean vibes with soulful Flamenco guitar strings, exotic flavours, and a fun vibrant ambience.
Find a cosy candlelit corner or enjoy the liveliness of the bar as you create a Valentine’s Day evening worth remembering. If it’s your first date with a potential love interest, then any of those annoying nerves will soon melt away as you get into the Adulusian spirit, and definitely the mood for romance.
A culinary journey
Romance is all about shared experiences and opening new doors in your mind and heart, and what better way to enhance this journey as you explore new foods together. Tapas is the perfect opportunity to step out of your culinary comfort zone and try different and delicious dishes, no matter what your tastes and dietary requirements.
Drinks with a difference
To complement the Spanish cuisine you may be tempted to try something different to drink. Tapas food goes well with traditional beers or white and red wines. However, it’s a great opportunity to sample some cocktails such as sangria or a Spanish G&T, which is infused with herbs or spice garnishes and a dash of Angostura bitters.
A touch of Flamenco flamboyance
Tapas bars often feature live music, so keep an eye out for special performances on the night. Traditional Spanish guitar music has evolved from the Flamenco culture of Adulusia, which captures the essence of the human spirit in all its joy, love, happiness and heartbreak.
The lilting and soulful guitar rhythms will provide the perfect sensual backdrop to your evening, enhancing those feel-good date night vibes.
A tapas bar as your Valentine’s Day venue is a refreshing and unconventional choice that shows your date you are thoughtful and willing to look beyond the obvious. Make it a unique and memorable experience this year with the irresistible romance of Espania.
