It’s that time of year again when love is in the air, so it’s time to start planning the perfect date to impress your love this February 14th. There is certainly no shortage of options when it comes to showing your Valentine a good time in the city that never sleeps, so we’ve narrowed it down with our pick of the best events in NYC that are sure to have them head-over-heels.
- Dine with a difference
When it comes to romantic dining options, New York has a few. But when you can enjoy most restaurants year-round, why not try a truly unique dining experience for the special day? The American Natural History Museum’s Rose Center for Earth and Space is hosting a unique date night which includes a cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres and chocolates aplenty, served in the spectacular setting of the Cullman Hall of the Universe and complete with string quartet accompaniment. The ‘Romance Under the Stars’ evening then moves into the Hayden Planetarium for an incredible view of the night sky and a cosy delve into romance stories inspired by the cosmos.
- Catch a show
You can’t go wrong with a good Broadway show, and what better way to mark Valentine’s than a special trip to theatre land to experience a true spectacle that will wow your date. Do your research and check across different ticketing sites to get the best deals on popular shows, and make sure they feel the love with a show that gives a good nod to romance such as Anastasia, Waitress, Wicked, Aladdin, or The Lion King.
- Do dinner and a movie
Sometimes you can’t beat this classic go-to date idea, but take it to the next level this Valentine’s Day with renowned dine-in theatre Nitehawk, based in Williamsburg. Throughout the month of February they are screening classic movies along the theme of love, so cosy up with your Valentine, grab a cocktail, and tuck into some delicious food whilst reliving those cult-favorite flicks.
- Attend a swanky soiree
If you’re keen to get your glad rags on and dance the night away to some classic jazz, the annual Sweetheart Soiree, this year held at an 1847 townhouse-turned-private-club, is for you. Take your Valentine to sip signature cocktails, get a cheeky snap in the Sweetheart Kissing Booth, or learn to dance with Roddy Caravella. Complimentary hors d’ouevres and sweat treats will also be on hand throughout the evening.
- Book a limo
For a really special way to see the city, why not choose our luxurious New York limo rental service?
