The most romantic bars for a date with your Valentine
Love is in the air! As Valentine’s day approaches, we’re all feeling inspired to bring out our most romantic, elegant selves.
And what better way to celebrate this special day with your special someone than with amazing cocktails in an unforgettable setting?
If you’re looking for ideas for February 14th, these stellar venues really crank up the romance.
Ophelia, New York City
Boasting incredible views thanks to its location on the 26th floor of Beekman Tower, Ophelia brings out the wow factor as soon as you step in. The sky-high ceiling, towering cathedral windows and jewel-toned dark blue walls plunge guests in a suspended world of decadent sophistication, complete with black-and-white checkered floors, plush velvet seating, and beautiful vintage finds in glass showcases.
Wilhelmina’s Lounge, The Zetter Townhouse, London
Tucked away inside a Georgian townhouse on St John’s Square, this cosy, 1800s-themed bar filled with character will literally transport you to another world, far removed from the ordinary day-to-day. The eccentric, antique decor — all hardwood floors, vintage carpets, comfy armchairs, intricate wallpaper, glowing lampshades and framed paintings — is as magical as the cocktails, which fittingly put the accent on herbal tinctures and bitters.
Le Très Particulier, Paris
As far as Paris neighborhoods go, you can’t get more romantic than high perched Montmartre, with its quaint village feel, winding narrow streets, and gorgeous views on the capital. Nestled between the famous Avenue Junot and the Rue Lepic is Hôtel Particulier Montmartre, an intimate all-suite hotel set in a 19th-century townhouse. This haven of elegance and greenery is home to Le Très Particulier, a stylish and deliciously private bar oozing French class. Have your pick between the plush, red velvet lounge or the lush, verdant garden, and indulge in an expertly crafted signature cocktail or two. Magnifique!
