Let’s face it: Valentine’s Day chocolates, flowers, and a nice dinner are great, but it can feel a little repetitive year after year. In Vegas, we’re all about taking risks and having fun. So why not try something new with your special someone on this heart-eyed holiday? We’ve rounded up a list of the most unique and quirky (yet still romantic) ways to spend the evening with your loved one.
BLACKOUT Dining In The Dark is a one-of-a-kind culinary experience that allows patrons to experience a multi-course meal in the pitch black. This sit-down sensory adventure forces you to be in the moment (you must lock your phones away) and with nothing to distract you, you’ll find yourself having honest conversations—and over excellent food. You won’t know what you’re eating until the very end and you will have highly-trained and entertaining staff (in night vision goggles) that will help you throughout your meal. This critically-acclaimed restaurant has been seen in Forbes, Eater, CNBC, and USA Today; it has also been featured on Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen. For optimal enjoyment, show up for dinner with an open mind, a big heart, and a large appetite. Think you’re up for the challenge?

Don’t forget to snap pictures! The experience is brief (about 10 minutes), but it’s extremely breathtaking, exciting, and memorable.

Can’t make it all the way to Paris for a Valentine’s Day soirée? No problem. Head to the Eiffel Tower Restaurant. It may sound cheesy right now, but when you see the view, you’ll understand all the hype. Repeatedly named one of the most romantic restaurants in Vegas, its luxurious French-inspired ambiance and gorgeous views of the Las Vegas Strip are unmatched. For the special holiday, Chef J. Joho has set a special prix fixe menu so all the visiting lovebirds will get to experience a taste of their most popular dishes in one dynamic dinner (Can you say lobster bisque, Alaskan king crab salad, and prime filet mignon?). Don’t forget to make a reservation!

Speaking of foreign and exotic excursions, where else would you be able to enjoy a whimsical and dreamy Venetian gondola ride outside of Venice, Italy? At the Venetian Hotel, treat your special someone to a beautiful ride through the calm waters under twinkling lights in the night. You’ll effortlessly float down Vegas’s Grand Canal past cafés, under bridges and balconies, and alongside the Venetian streets. The best part? Your gondolier will be singing tunes to you and your love as you relax and look on. You have two options: the indoor route or the outdoor route, but both are equally charming experiences. It is said that the Old World ride feels like stepping into a time machine, so if you’re looking for a classic and classy night, this could be the adventure for you.

Sometimes we don’t need a big adventure on this big day; we just need a relaxing escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. If you’ve been feeling tense lately, consider visiting The Spa at Aria on the Las Vegas Strip for a couples massage this Valentine’s Day. This luxurious spot is home to gorgeous amenities and is the largest five-star-rated spa in America. There is a daily pass that grants you access to the outdoor therapy pool, fitness center, wet areas, ganbanyoku heated stone beds, and shio salt room. We recommend the Himalayan salt stone couples massage for deep relaxation and muscle tension relief with a dash of aromatherapy. The spa offers Valentine’s Day specials throughout February, so be on the lookout!

If you’ve got the need for speed, take an exhilarating spin at SpeedVegas. For one night only, you and your date can take exotic, luxury cars and off-road vehicles for a spin on a special speedway. The 1.5 mile-long track is equipped with 12 crazy turns and has various shifts in elevation to spice things up and set them apart from the everyday streets we drive. Afterward, you’ll even get to take a fire photo next to the car. Hop behind the wheel of a Lamborghini or Ferrari (or a Porsche or Corvette) and gear up for the time of your life.

If you and your partner have a sense of humor, enjoy dinner and a show at Marriage Can Be Murder. This award-winning comedy-murder-mystery dinner show is a good one; it’s been around for over 20 years and its theme is hilariously fitting for the evening. You’ll get to be a part of the mystery and the fun during this two hour interactive and wacky experience by playing as the sleuths. Come hungry, detectives, because you’ll be served a three-course meal (choose between braised bistro filet, herb-crusted pork tenderloin, and cheese tortellini primavera). The tickets range in prices, with each package including something different, from souvenirs and drinks to actual participation in the show. Are you ready to figure out “who-dun-it”?
