Read on to find out what NYC experiences are sure to make memories that last longer than a dozen roses.

Syndicated: Dinner & A Movie

40 Bogart St, Brooklyn, NY

Arguably the most classic of romantic ventures, dinner and a movie at Syndicated provides an elevated take on the time-tested date night. A hybrid of movie theater, bar and restaurant, the spot boasts a grand dining area serving finely-crafted American fare and cocktails, as well as a 50-seat dine-in cinema. You and yours can cozy up to that flick you’ve been waiting to see, with gourmet popcorn in hand.

Valentine’s Day Comedy

487 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY

What better way to ease the tension of spending February 14 with a new love interest than with laughter? EastVille Comedy Club lets you forgo the romantic candlelit dinner for something a bit more easygoing. The stellar lineup features actress and stand-up star, Janeane Garofalo, and writer-comedian, Hari Kondabolu, both of whom will surely have some tongue-in-cheek views on the most romantic day of the year.

Dine at Buvette

42 Grove St, New York, NY

No one does romance like the French, making a bistro-table for two at NYC’s Buvette the perfect Valentine’s plan. With dishes ranging from the decadent leg of lamb to comfort-food croque monsieurs, and a bar that stays open until 2 a.m., this West Village eatery beckons to couples looking to linger late into the night.

Museum Of Sex

233 Fifth Ave, New York, NY

While admittedly on the nose, a trip to the Museum of Sex can act as the perfect mood-setter for February’s friskiest day. Raunchy yet educational, exhibits like “Superfunland: Journey into the Erotic Carnival” and “Cam Life” offer insightful explorations of human sexuality. While not for the straitlaced, the exhibits and gift shop at MoSex are an alternative take on the traditional date.

New York Open – Quarterfinals

NYCB LIVE, Home of The Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum, Uniondale, NY

Call in sick and start your weekend early by heading to the New York Open Quarterfinals. You and your significant other can relax while watching doubles square off all afternoon. While they might be avoiding that “love” score, as spectators on V-day you certainly won’t be.

Bathtub Gin

132 Ninth Ave, New York, NY

Sipping on something strong in a speakeasy feels entirely fitting for 2020. A decade post-Prohibition, getting fast and loose at Bathtub Gin is just as thrilling. Cozy up to a custom drink and each other in the shadowy, opulent space.

Valentine’s Day Singles Penthouse Party

7 East 36th Street, New York, NY

Not to fret if the only thing missing on Valentine’s Day is a significant other. The Singles Penthouse Party breaks the ice for you with cocktails, dancing and no shortage of prospects. Bring a friend or show up solo dressed to impress, and maybe Cupid’s arrow will fly.
