1. Brunch it up
Whether it’s fancytown at the Wolseley or chilled out at the Albion, start the day off romantically with your other half before you go to work and then feel the warm fuzzies all day. Have a mimosa or ask the chef if they can do heart shaped pancakes for something extra special.
2. Do V*day Early
Avoid jacked up prices and special set menus, choose your favourite restaurant and reserve on the 13th. Have a glass of champagne at midnight and celebrate Valentine’s day before anyone else.
3. Go Electric
Love an old fashioned movie? Book tickets at the Electric Cinema in West London and enjoy the oversized seats and sofas, snacks and classic decor for the luxury movie going experience.
5. Be Irresistible
Treat yourself, and your significant other to something from my favourite lingerie store, Bordelle.
6. A Brief Encounter by Future Cinema
Check out Secret Cinema’s newest venture, Future Cinema, an interactive and experimental film experience happening at the Troxy starting next Tuesday. If you’ve ever been to the Secret Cinema, you’ll know it’s not to be missed.
7. Stamp it Out
How cute are these stamps? Go old school and send your other half, friends and family a note with a super cute stamp from Paper+Cup. 10% off for Valentine’s Day Orders!!! ‘Nuff said. use discount code: pcluv10
8. Sinner Saint Burlesque
Perfect for friends, couples or groups, check out the super sexy burlesque show at the Brick House on Brick Lane.
9. Book a Private Chef
Don’t feel like venturing out into the cold? Book a private chef from some of London’s most fabulous Supper Clubs like Shacklewell Nights and have them come to you. Wine and Dine in your PJs at home or got to the Town Hall Hotel in Hackney, rent a hotel room and have a city chic slumber party with a “Chef in the Room” VIP treatment.
10. And if all else fails…. go for something like this. (Thanks Henry.)
