Dating Black Owned

Over the past 24 months we have seen an increase in people making a conscious effort to support black owned businesses. With the start of movements like Black Pound Day, it’s really brought the importance of supporting black owned business to the forefront of our communities. As much as black love is important to us, so is the levelling up of our communities and a major way to achieve this is by simply supporting businesses in our communities.

Because we love love especially black love, we’ve created a list of amazing black owned restaurants and bars to visit on one of your dates
