But from what my hazy, alcohol-infused memory can remember — the dating game is an absolute nightmare — one wrong word or phrase or a bit of spinach stuck in your teeth are just a few of the things that can scupper your chances.
On top of this, one of the main draws has to be the ping pong tables in the back room. Not only will these provide a little injection of competition into the date, but will also provide a welcome distraction if you find yourself struggling to come up with things to talk about.
With Manchester being Manchester, there are absolutely lo of places to check out live music, starting with the big boys over at the Manchester now AO Arenavia the O2 ApolloManchester Academy and even Band on the Wall. Both offer up the perfect date environment, one where the competition can kick in pretty early, and the cocktails will get you both suitably drunk enough to shake off that fear and tackle that dancing game together.

HOME Another one of my former favourites, the Roundhouse provided the perfect setting for a date — food, drinks, a bit of culture and a cinema in which to try to show off your knowledge of trendy art-house films instead of turning up at the Odeon to watch Transformers 6. Instead, get your walking boots on and be at one with nature, with fresh air, exercise and something else pretty to look at. A bag of cans and ciggies are an optional extra. A Bit of Tapas Tapas is the perfect date food and nowhere does it better than Manchester.

Well, apart from pretty much every single city in Spain. The Best Tapas Bars in Manchester. An Escape Room What better way to show your date that you are a well-rounded, thoughtful individual than locking them up in a room with you and showing them that you can solve puzzles.
Being locked up in a small room with someone can reveal a lot about their character, and so these things are perfect for getting a good idea of whether you want to spend the rest of your life with someone. Best be careful.
To impress them even more, head on into the restaurant and order some of their modern Asian inspired dishes, while surrounded by their fantastic cherry blossom tree and the odd celebrity. Finally, you can impress your date even more by actually paying for it all, or alternatively, offering to do the washing up for the next 4 years once you realise your debit card has been declined and shredded.
Book A Table. Dog Bowl If there was ever a more suitable date event and activity it would be ten pin bowling.

Escape to Freight Island Easily one of the best venues in the world at the moment, Escape to Freight Island is like a modern version of the Coliseum in Rome, except without the lions, bad fringes and brutal killings. Oh, and everyone flocks for miles around to come down. So, actually nothing like the Coliseum really.
Grab some food, sink some pints and flirt away. Once this has been explained, getting them to agree to come back to yours to watch The Jungle Book in bed will be a cinch.
So head on down to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre for one of the largest radio telescopes in the world and a host of interactive exhibitions and displays for you to get your head around. The surrounding areas are amazing too, so you can head to Mobberley or Knutsford afterwards for a few drinks and some grub.
Get yourself down to The Dating in the NQ, or one of the many karaoke Manchester in Chinatown and get Bon Jovi, Always on the screen, have a little bit of Dutch courage and get singing the song at the top of your lungs. Junkyard Golf Sticking with the idea that playing some sort of game for an added competitive edge is a good thing, you can always give Junkyard Golf a try and down some cocktails while trying to hit a tiny ball with a thin stick. A mini golf game is one of the first dates Homer took Marge, and their marriage has been going for pretty much 30 years now.
Book It. Head on down to the Frog and Bucket at the top of Oldham Street for one of their brilliant comedy nights and treat your date to some food, some drinks, some fantastic gags and then a cheesy disco afterwards where you can clumsily make your move.
Fish and Chips This one is my personal favourite dates ever; so if anyone is reading this and fancies trying it on with the Brownmeister — take some notes. Order fish, chips and mushy peas x2 with lo of salt and vinegar. Then take the fish and chips and drinks down to the canal in Ancoats and proceed to scoff your face while having some bevvies — ideally in the sun. It works perfectly if the other person has woken up in your bed though, just grab your clobber, wipe the lipstick off your face and head out the door for 2 hours of non-stop Prosecco and some grub.
