Valentine’s haters, please look away now.
Whether you’re a reluctant participant or a helpless romantic, we’ve found some smashing things to do in London over the Valentine’s Day week, courtesy of our friends at Fever.
Fans of Adele rejoice, this is one pitch-perfect evening for someone like you! On Friday, Feb 16, An elegant evening awaits, so don your glad rags and allow yourself to be greeted with delicious canapés and a glass of Veuve Clicquot before you take your seats for an impressive four-course dinner. Rumor has it, Adele too will be joining us in the form of a live performance from Nikki Rae, a world-class Adele impersonator. Get tickets here.
At A Night of Love Songs, you’ll enjoy a soulful compilation of the greatest love songs as a full live band delivers hits from the 60’s right up to now, across genres spanning from reggae and soul to R&B and pop. Get tickets here.
Ice skating, prosecco, and MEATliquor burgers. If that doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day, we don’t know what will. Indulge in one of MEATliquor’s mouthwatering creations, sip your bubbly, and then hit the ice for a glide (or tumble, depending on your ability).
Nothing like a grand collaboration to celebrate Valentine’s Day. South London legends Prince of Peckham and Morley’s Chicken have teamed up to create a four-course dinner. With White Men Can’t Jerk helping out on the starters, and a punchy rum cocktail added for refreshment, this one promises to be delicious yet relaxed.
Part of Waterloo’s daring Vault Festival, The Bleeding Heart Ball promises to be a tantalising affair. How could it not, when rooms called ‘Den of Iniquity’ and ‘The Pleasure Palace’ are on offer? With music, theatre, cabaret, and circus, this will be a Valentine’s event to remember. Until the absinthe kicks in, of course…
The Cheese Wheel Supperclub at KERB Camden
If you’re someone who loves cheese as much as – or even more than – your partner, then this is the event for you. Honestly, we don’t blame you, particularly when it’s a wheel of creamy melted grana padano, into which you can dunk fettucine and some delectable toppings. With arancini to start, tiramisu cheesecake to finish, and bellinis throughout, this is one cheesy Valentine’s Day dinner. Best of all, you get to keep the cheese wheel when you’re done!
Well, the two do go hand in hand, and Proud Camden will be indulging both. Both events are three course dinners and a show, but the entertainment will vary. Love Valentine’s Special is romantic, and classier than a crystal champagne glass. The Lust Valentine’s Special will be altogether more risque, featuring downright naughty burlesque acts.
St Martin-in-the-Fields is the atmospheric setting for this candlelit recital. World-renowned pianist Dinara Klinton will be tinkling the ivories, playing pieces from Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, and Chopin, amongst others. Beautiful music, beautiful church, and beautiful people (that’s you lot) – Valentine’s Day is sorted for another year.
Fulham’s Christmas pop-up is getting a Valentine’s makeover. The Christmas trees are gone, replaced by cherry blossom-covered igloos, which can be hired for a very romantic treat. Winterland are promising “aphrodisiac cocktails”, and you loved up lot can take on karaoke, mini-golf, and prosecco pong. Or perhaps curling represents your best chance to sweep that special someone off their feet?
Brunch can be a pretty romantic affair normally, but adding in the hottest tunes of the 90s takes it to the next level. Expect to hear hits from Boyz II Men, Mariah Carey, and R Kelly as you tuck into a feast of proper 90s party food. Bottomless cocktails will get you feeling fresh for the lip sync battle, and victory is the perfect way to impress your bae.
