Promoting self-love

The self-love restaurant includes mood-boosting music, feel-good food, and mirrors that reflect motivational quotes at the single diner.

The pop-up was created following a survey by Mintel of 2,000 UK consumers that found that one in three people are regularly eating meals on their own, in London every second person.

Above all else, the Two4One mirrored event is meant to encourage singletons to enjoy a night out on the year’s most-celebrated romantic date, without needing anything more than their own company.

The twist

If you thought dining on your own isn’t awkward enough, wait until you see the person on the other side of the mirror who was dining there with you all that time.

Maybe it turns out to be the love of your life and you have a nice story to tell. Or if all else fails, at least you get to split the bill and claim a two-for-one deal.

Money raised at the pop-up goes to Mary’s Meals charity, which provides hungry children with a meal every school day.

If you’d like to go for a more traditional Valentine’s Day meal with a loved one (other than yourself), there are plenty of romantic dining options in London.
