The Next Big Thing in Lockdown Romance

June 13, 2020

Roses are red

Violets are blue

When was the last time you weren't in sweatpants?

Yeah, we're looking at you!


Experience something new together

It doesn't matter if you just moved in together pre-lockdown or are celebrating 25 years of marriage, 3 months is a long time to spend looking at loungewear. So how about trying something new to give your closest relationship a pick me up?

We're not talking about trying a new route on your daily walk. Or discovering another boxset. We're proposing our newest feature, Experiences. Live tastings and workshops with Edinburgh locals to discover the best of the city remotely. 

Whether it's date night, your anniversary or you're just looking to cure boredom, a shared experience means quality time together. Now is the time to dig out your glad rags and posh shoes. With Edinburgh Lockdown Economy's Experiences there's no stumbling along cobblestone streets trying to find your way home...

So forget Netflix and chill. This is Lockdown and chill.
