Father’s Day is just around the corner, as Sunday 18 June marks the day you can treat your dad to something special.

In this week’s BID Spotlight we’ve pulled together some of the best city centre options for both gifts and a special day out.

Dad’s eat free at Sonrisa

Sonrisa are supporting a local charity with a sock amnesty and they’ll accept unwanted Father’s Day sock gifts as currency in exchange for delicious food at Sonrisa up to the value of £25*. All you need to do is pre book via the Sonrisa website and make sure your dad brings his new socks along with him ready to exchange. The offer is running on both June 18th and June 19th.

A night at Sixes Social Cricket

The perfect option for a cricket loving dad, book some time on the nets at Sixes Social Cricket in the Cultural Quarter. Treat Dad to a burger and a beer and see who can get the highest score as you take on the Sixes cricket technology. A fun day out for any ages.

Suit Direct

Is your Dad someone who likes to always look their best? At Suit Direct you can grab their Everyday Occasions suit from just £89 or you can shop the rest of their suave range with up to 50% off in the summer sale. Find Suit Direct in Highcross or shop online at suitdirect.co.uk.

Leicester Gift Card

Black Iron Social

Don’t miss the fantastic Sunday lunch at Black Iron Social. One of the best Sunday lunches around, you can enjoy 2 courses for just £20 or 3 courses for £25. With their superb slow roasted rump of beef, chicken breast or sea bass, it’s the perfect setting to enjoy a special Sunday. Book online via blackiron.co.uk.

E-darts, foot pool and axe throwing at Caddyshackers

An all in one activity heaven, book some time in with your Dad at Caddyshackers. The venue has undergone a refurb and you can enjoy a mix of competitive e-darts along with Leicester’s only foot pool venue. After that why not enjoy a session in their axe throwing lanes, as an instructor talks your through before seeing who can get that top score. Book activities online via the Caddyshackers website.

Cinema vouchers at Phoenix

With the new expansion now open at Phoenix, a gift voucher is the ideal gift for Father’s Day. A meal in the cafe bar, beers on the rooftop terrace and then a movie in the brand new screens. P.S. The new Indiana Jones is out at the end of June. Perfect timing.
