Valentine's Day Ideas in NYC
Valentine's Day Ideas in NYC

February 14th is right around the corner, which means that you might want to begin planning ahead for Valentine's Day. Fortunately, New York City is one of the most romantic cities in the world, making it easy to find something to do with that special something on Valentine's Day. The following are a few things that you could do on this upcoming Valentine's Day in NYC:

  • Party on the Hornblower Cruise - Spend an evening enjoying the stunning Manhattan skyline while taking part in a yacht party on the Hudson. It's a little pricey at $125 a person, but in addition to being able to take in the unique views and dance the night away by joining this yacht party, there will also be a romantic three-course meal that is included.

  • Have a Cocktail at The Django - If you want to see some live music on Valentine's Day, then head over to Tribeca and look for this little speakeasy, which boasts live jazz in an intimate setting. Indulge in small plates and expertly-crafted cocktails that were crafted by Joseph Schwartz and Vito Dieterle, two pioneers of the cocktail world that teamed up with The Roxy in order to create The Django.

  • Catch a Movie at Syndicated - Syndicated is a new dine-in movie theater that just opened up in Bushwick. They will be showing the charming little movie Once at three different times from 5:00 PM to 9:00 PM, which they will then follow up with a screening of My Bloody Valentine, which for all of those couples that are horror fans out there is an absolutely perfect way to end the evening. They have some incredible meals, snacks and cocktails to choose from as well. For example, they have eight different seasoning options for their popcorn, cocktails that include the Steve McQueen and Redrum, and meals like Hurricane Popcorn Tuna and Slow Cooked Lamb Ribs.

  • Check out Your Love, Our Musical! - For a unique evening of entertainment, head over to Spectrum for a little bit of musical comedy improv. Your Love, Our Musical! centers around Rebecca Vigil and Evan Kaufman, who will proceed to interview real couples within the audience. Once they've gathered enough information about the couple, they will improvise a complete song and dance number about that couple's love story - accompanied with a live band. The show takes place the night before Valentine's Day on Saturday, February 13th. 

  • Enjoy a Romance Under the Stars - There's nothing quite as romantic as staring out at the stars with that special someone. Of course, this is kind of difficult to do in a city full of light. Fortunately, you can always go to the Rose Center for Earth and Space at the American Museum of Natural History. Romance Under the Stars will kick off with an open bar that includes cocktails, champagne, hors d'oeuvres and chocolate, all while a jazz quartet provides a lovely score to the proceedings. After an hour, an astronomer will narrate classic love stories based on the mythology of the cosmos in the Hayden Planetarium.

  • A walk in Central Park - Sometimes, something as simple as an afternoon walk in the park can provide the intimate romantic time that you are seeking for. Go for a stroll through New York's famous landmark, or hop onto one of the many horse carriages on the outskirts of the park for a ride through.
