Date night: Everyman Cinema, Maida Vale


If you have a date night in mind, there is no better place than the Everyman Cinema, in Maida Vale!
You don't have to be on a first date for date night...I love taking my husband "out on a date";  
after all who said boys have to do all the work, all the time? And I'm always very excited to spend the evening here.

It's a bit more special than your average cinema, it almost feels like you are at a bar, but then you get to eat yummy, freshly prepared food and watch a movie all cuddled up on the double sofas in the screening room!  


Why so special?
Well, it's got this luxe retro vibe throughout but feels very relaxed at the same time; nobody checks your tickets at the door, for example.
You walk straight into this mini museum of classic movie posters and climb your way up the stairs to the little bar made to look like a library, with black and white movies playing in the background. 
Great conversation starters if you are on your first date! 



Chocolate coated raisins, honeycomb and popping candy come next! Ice cream comes from smaller suppliers in the cutest white cups.
The whole idea behind this cinema is that nothing feels mass produced, from the service to the food and drinks, everything feels more familiar and personalised.










Then you get to order a cocktail or bubbles and you sit back and sip it slowly, while watching the movie.
Don't forget your food...  pizza, burger & fries, nachos, calamari rings or a Greek salad...there is quite a bit of choice and you get to have dinner rather than junky snacks. 

I had the classic pizza margarita and although it looks small, it was delicious because the ingredients were so fresh; attention: the velvety, stringy mozzarella might distract your attention from the movie! Oh that's another good point: you can take your food inside and pop it on your little table too. 



Just before I go, I must admit that I love the neighbourhood around the cinema, it adds on to the overall charm factor. It's safe, quite and the terraced houses around Warrington Crescent provide the perfect backdrop for an evening stroll with your honey-bunny! x
