1. Share the food of Love - Bundobust, Piccadilly

Bundobust are offering free okra fries for every combo of two ordered.

Did you know?

Okra fries are actually an aphrodisiac and usually referred to as Mother Nature’s vegetable of love! 

The Indian street food restaurant also has fizz and cocktails/mocktails on the menu. There’s even a sharing bottle of Belgian Style Wild Ale called, ‘Juliet.'

2. Canoodle over an aphrodisiac milkshake

Ahead of Valentines, American-inspired restaurant, Ed's Diner has created the ultimate ‘Love Shake’ - laced with renowned aphrodisiacs, spicy hot chilli and rich dark chocolate packed with capsaicin, to promote circulation, and increase the sensitivity of nerve endings and support the blood flow and increases serotonin levels.

3. Try 'Street Dating' - The Printworks

Sassy, single and ready to mingle in Manchester this Valentine’s Day? The Printworks is looking for "confident, outgoing people up for a laugh and most importantly, ready to find the one for them."

The chosen people will be taken out by the centre’s resident cupid to look for love around the city. They will tell them about their type and what they look for in a partner and the Streetdate team will scour the the streets for shoppers who might be a match. 

If someone takes their fancy, cupid will grab their attention and get them introduced - then it’s up to the singleton to turn on the charm and ask them out. With a date secured the lucky couple will be whisked off the following evening for a romantic dinner for two at Nando’s in The Printworks. Winner, winner chicken dinner!

6. Be the very first couple to eat at Manchester's new Neapolitan pizza restaurant
