...Ideas for Father's Day
“If you're cutting it fine don't panic; it's never too late to let your dad know he's better than the rest, so here are some ideas of how to do it.”
For something traditional, head to Boisdale where lunch can be followed by drinks on the Cigar Terrace. Automat caters for early risers, serving a satisfying brunch from 10am, but if you'd prefer to make it later in the day, the Pantechnicon and the Grazing Goat both offer hearty lunch menus of traditional pub fare. And lastly, if you dine with your dad at Tamarind on Father's Day, he'll get his lunch for free.
If your pa is a theatre buff, treat him to a two-course pre or post theatre dinner at The Ivy with top price tickets to Simon Gray's comedy, Butley (£65 per person - call 0844 482 9672 quoting ‘Ivy Restaurant Package’ or book online using the promo code IVYDINNER) or at Le Caprice with tickets to see Rupert Everett in Pymalion at the Garrick Theatre (£67 per person - call 0844 482 9673 quoting 'Le Caprice Meal Package' or book online). And if he's an active sort, head to Bisley Shooting Ground or City Golf for a bonding session whilst improving your aim and/or swing.
For a dashing dad, treat him to a either a Skin Specific Facial (£90) or the Dead Sea Back Treatment (£80), both specially formulated for men, at The Health Club at One Aldwych. And while the name may no longer be fitting (we hope), The Rubio 'For the Ultimate Playboy' (£180) at Gentlemen's Tonic, including a haircut and finish, wet shave, express facial, hand treatment and Swedish massage, will keep him looking sharp.
It's still not too late to buy Father's Day presents online, with Gift-Library.com and HappyBox London both offering next day delivery services on their wonderful selection of gifts and goodies. And for a sweet surprise, a Super Dad Cookie Card from doughdough.com is guaranteed to put a smile on his face (use promo code LBSWEET to receive a 20% discount).
