Valentine’s day is literally just around the corner, ah l’amour, so I thought I’d share some date night ideas for you and your special someone… And some tips for my fellow singles. Be warned, it’s about to get romantic…
For the loved up bunch, take your honey out for a special night to set their heart a flutter, don’t worry if you’re busy on Valentine’s night (what? Seriously, take the night off), most of these places are offering specials for the whole weekend.
Alfred & Constance’s new mid-summer menu is perfect for those whose stomach is the way to their heart! From the succulent seafood starters, the delicious mains and the special sweet treats, by the time you make it to the bar for a nightcap your special someone will be putty in your hands.
Known for their delicious comfort food and baked goods made in-house, enjoy a warm, intimate evening at this neighbour bakery and bar, or pick up some sweet treats for a special evening in on the way home. Chester Street will be selling shortbread hearts, meringues and chocolate brownie hearts!
Secretive and sexy, treat your special someone to an evening at Malt. You can opt for al a carte, a set menu or a more casual offering, with the Attic Bar offering tapas or a wine degustation in the cellar. Top it all off with one of their fine whiskys on the way out and you’ll set for the night.
Your Favourite Hotel
Get really romantic and book a room for the night, or the weekend. Novotel Brisbane, Emporium Hotel (who have just taken out the Best Luxury Accommodation title at the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards for the second year running!) and Marriott Brisbane all have fantastic Valentine’s Day restaurant specials, make a night of it and the romance doesn’t have to stop when the meal does.
For those of us still waiting for Cupid to turn his bow our way, get yourself out and about and see where the arrows land!
So I’ve heard mixed things about Tinder but a lot of people use it and if nothing else, it’s funny and you might make a new friend. Limes Hotel is holding the “Official” Tinder party in their rooftop bar, very sexy in the city, and the Fox Hotel on the other side of town is holding a I Love Tinder party (not quite so official) in their rooftop bar. Twice the rooftop, twice the fun?
Bitter Suite is holding a sweet singles cocktail party at their New Farm digs, come with a lover or a friend for a night of canapes and libations.
Holding it’s annual singles party, Love Bites, Laruche is offering a night of candy, drinks, photo booths and fun with special guest GG Magree. Dust off your dancing shoes and get involved!
It’s the day to show some love to the people around you, whether significant others or just your BFF show them you care and make the most of your Valentine’s. If these events aren’t for you be sure to check out our events page for some more going’s on in Brisbane.
