Date Night – Bordeaux Quay
May 24, 2011
So Friday the 13th, date night.
We went to Bordeaux Quay for cocktails and charcuterie, I got dressed up and we sat in the wine bar, which I have never seen before, it’s a really lovely space I definitely want to go again.
We were actually there on a groupon deal, we have only ever done one before which to be honest was rubbish, the restaurant did the classic, on a deal don’t care act. Not impressed.
Bordeaux Quay was not like that, the staff were lovely, we had more than enough food and the cocktails were amazing. Highly recommend, even on full price this would have been good, on a groupon it was a massive bargain.
The bar manager even came over to ask us how we liked his cocktail list, which was different and imaginative. It is rare that people care that much but he explained his ideas behind the list and that he is a cocktail geek! He likes to dig up old recipes…
I started with a Southside Fizz and my Boyfriend had a between the sheets… both YUM! We also had some olives.
Then our plates arrived, with so much more than we expected. We had a plate of artisan charcuterie with wild boar salami, speck, coppa and a terrine, plus a plate of grilled & marinated vegetables with rocket & burrata, and a big portion of home made bread.
Then we had more cocktails (you got two in this deal)…
The he proposed, I said yes and we drank my favourite champagne… before walking to our old date spot The Rummer for another cocktail just because we always used to go there, I wasn’t quite ready to go home.
So I have learnt that groupon’s are not always bad, you just have to pick and choose where you go. I also learnt that my love for Bordeaux Quay has grown now I know that upstairs you can go to a quiet spot with a view for a drink. So even if this deal has now gone you can go for a little glass of wine and a plate of good nibbles.
Best Date Ever.
