It’s not long until Valentine’s Day is upon us. Like it or not, if you’re in a couple, it is absolutely essential that you make the effort to take your loved one out and show them some love and appreciation. But no fear! If you haven’t booked anywhere yet, then we’ve got you covered. Check out these popular destinations for Valentine’s Day this year.

  1. Marco Pierre White’s 

Your loved one deserves to be spoilt on Valentine’s day. Treat them to a meal at this spectacular restaurant and experience 360-degree panoramic views overlooking the city whilst you savour their delicious food. Located on the top floor of The Cube, one of Birmingham’s most iconic buildings, the team at the renowned restaurant are getting ready for the venue’s week-long celebration of love which is set to put Cupid’s bow and arrow into overdrive! Join them for Valentine’s week, running between 11th and 17th Feb, and let them sweep your date off their feet.

  1. Lane7

If you’d like to trade in the fine-dining for some good old-fashioned fun then Lane7 is your place. It’s bowling like you’ve never seen it before; think walnut lanes, retro arcades and shuffleboard, all in the best bar you’ve ever been to. Take out the stress of Valentine’s and just enjoy yourself. Get a bowl and a beer for just £25 per couple, or £45 if you’re ordering food. Now THAT’S love!

  1. Legna

A new addition to Birmingham; Legna is an obvious choice for Valentine’s day, serving Italian cuisine that’s traditional and innovative in equal measure. Their visionary interior will transport you from Birmingham to the romantic rolling hills of Italy. The smell of slow-simmered tomato sauce on the stove, the creamy inside of a burrata, or the immediate warmth and perfume from being in the same room as a wood-fired oven is enough to get anyone fired up, if you get my drift… Book now to avoid disappointment.

  1. Miss Macaroon

Tired of the classic wine and dine Valentine’s evening? Surprise your loved one with the ‘Paint Your Own Love Hearts’ event on Tuesday 12th February at Miss Macaroon. You can paint your very own messages or images onto their bespoke heart-shaped macaroons in strawberry, raspberry, violet and chocolate flavours, whilst sipping on a glass of Prosecco with your partner, friends or family.
