This Valentine’s Day, we’re taking you around the Windy City to celebrate! Whether you’re with your best friend, bae or squad, we compiled the best of what Chicago had to offer (all Cupid-approved too).
After spending all of February 13th, Leslie Knope’s official holiday, enjoying brunch with copious waffles, it is time to treat your girlfriends to a night out. What better way to celebrate all things women than hitting the dance floor to an endless stream of Queen B? At Sidetrack the Video Bar, there is no cover and your clique could win prizes in their All Things Bey Contest. How better for you to slay the day?
Wednesday, February 14 at 9:00 PM – 2:00 AM CST Sidetrack The Video Bar, 3349 N Halsted St, Chicago, Illinois 60657
Valentine’s day might be the day you are looking for something other than a Wi-Fi connection, if that is the case, try Raised Bar’s “No Date Required” Party. You can take in the city view while enjoying one-of-a kind cocktails and decadent desserts. Even if the fellow guests are a bust, it counts as a sweet date with the city!
February 14th 4:00 PM – 12:00AM Raised Bar, 1 West Upper Wacker Drive, Chicago, Illinois 60601
Parked in the Friend Zone
Whether by choice or by design, spending the day with your friend can still be a blast – and quite a bit cheaper as well! Use your lack of obligation to hit the Lincoln Park Zoo, and then grab a low-key dinner at Bar Siena, where you can opt to have your pizza in heart-shaped or…maybe just some spaghetti instead depending on how it’s going.
February 14th Bar Siena, 832 W Randolph Street, Chicago, IL 60607
The More the Merrier!
There’s no reason Valentine’s Day should be limited to twosomes, so give your favorite couple friends a call and make the occasion a double date! Take your foursome out on the town to Marshall’s Landing where you will get a great view along with a sampling of Koval’s signature whiskey; top that off with perfectly paired bites and cocktails!
February 14th 5:30 – 7:30 Marshall’s Landing, 222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza Suite 225 Chicago, IL 60654
Ignite the Flame
What better way to stoke the fire in your relationship than literally stoking the fire – take your date to an amazing experience blowing glass at Ignite Studios. Each couple works alongside one of their artists to create a one of a kind glass heart, with the addition of sparkling wine and chocolates to really make the experience sweet and complete.
February 14th 12:00 – 10:00 pm Ignite Glass Studios, 401 N. Armour Street Chicago, IL 60642
Netflix & Chill
Love is in the air – but it is Wednesday and you are saving your big event for the weekend when work is not looming over you the following morning. To let the night pass without event might not be appealing to you – but fear not! Mon Ami Gabi is partnering with GrubHub to provide those staying in with delivered romance; you can receive a 7-course sharing menu plus candles!
February 14th (delivery starts at 6pm)
