Still scrambling for somewhere to take your partner ahead of this weekend? Maybe you can't bare the thought of sitting in a restaurant and watching the couple next to you scribing 'my bae' in red lipstick onto a table napkin.

Whatever your plans, if you're aiming outside of the box to wow your loved one this weekend, we've picked out three alternative options to guide you away from throwing your dinner up at the utmost of cringe-worthy circumstances.   

Futureboogie Valentines Roller Disco, Oval Space London - Saturday 13th February

Remember that Austin Power's scene featuring Goldmember and Queen B and thinking that doesn't actually happen? Roller discos are booming in trend and Futureboogie are bringing their own Studio 69. They're sound tracking the eight-wheeled dance-offs with house, disco and techno before the main event gets rolling with Tiger and Woods and Rayko at the helm.  

Liverpool Comedy Cellar, The Magnet - Saturday 13th February 

Where better to deflect the laughs from your cheesy chat up lines and cut out any awkward silences than at Liverpool's quirkiest comedy club. Set in the intimate cellar of The Magnet, laughing duties are handed to Irish-Iranian funnyman Patrick Monahan and fresh faced native Adam Staunton. Make your evening a double whammy by taking advantage of the pre-show dining from Bistro Jacques and Fredericks to really wow your special one. 

Cirque Du Burlesque, Cirque Manchester - Saturday 13th February 

Looking for the ultimate bout of entertainment? Immerse you and your valentines in the grandeur of a glamorous burlesque night: complete with jaw-dropping fire breathers, live jazz singing and a valentines day twist. There'll be lashings of champagne on offer to keep things classy and there's an option to nab a VIP package if you're really looking to impress that special someone.
