Instead of a typical date night, insist that you both get dressed up and head to The Pump Room. In all her finery, your wife will feel just like a glamorous Hollywood starlet like Audrey Hepburn or Bette Davis (coincidentally, both used to frequent this iconic restaurant). This is the perfect backdrop for an elegant night where you can be spoiled by sophisticated food and impeccable service. After your meal, head to the bar, which recaptures the allure and grandeur of the 1930s and 40s. Although the ambiance may reflect those bygone years, the food has a modern twist with global dishes and contemporary takes on classics. If you’re lucky, you may even be seated in the famous Booth One, which was notorious for being reserved for celebrities and powerful politicians. If you don’t get seated there, at least snap a photo sitting there in the same spot as the likes of Sinatra and Bogart to commemorate your opulent night out together.
