It’s back! The most infamous day of romance that has both its detractors and its fans, but which one are you? Sure, there are a host of reasons to be against the cliché, overpriced dates that leave you feeling a little bit empty… but maybe that’s because everything’s been lost in translation and a fog of rose petals and heart-shaped teddy bears that retail at exorbitant prices.
At its core, Valentine’s Day is about spending time with the person, or people, that you love and having a great day or night out. Whether that’s a romantic dinner, an excuse for doing a fun activity, or dancing the night away, we’ve put together some of the best specials and events on that’ll be sure to tickle your fancy and get you in the mood.

More into a chilled night of live music at one of Jozi’s favourite bars? Well, Hell’s Kitchen in Melville has you covered with Blue Valentine. Whether you’re looking for a night out or just a few drinks, this should tick the boxes.
