Cooking Class for Two
Whether you’re a chef in the kitchen or if you’re not the sharpest knife in the draw when it comes to baking this can be a great bonding experience for you and your significant other.

You’ll be shown simple cooking techniques to elaborate intricate dishes to impress one another with.
A trip to the cinema is always a pleasurable experience, but with the new generation of movie theatres, forget what you know so far. Luxury screening is taking the art of the moving image to a whole new and decadent level. Think banquettes and beds with in-chair waiters, cashmere blankets and foot rests. That’s what you get at the Everyman and Electric cinemas, with branches across London, from Portobello to Canary Wharf – you can even hire these out privately for a totally tailor-made experience. Curzon Mayfair is the only destination to have two Royal Boxes seating four people each.
