It's that time again: roses. chocolates. and heart-shaped everything. Valentine's Day is upon us, and if you don't have a date quite yet, you're probably working on getting one (or at least looking for a cool watering hole to have a good drink at). That's where we come in: whether you're young or old, single or taken, there's something out there for you to do on February 14th, and one of these Valentine's Day events in Fort Lauderdale is just what cupid ordered!
If there's anything more romantic than a dinner date, it's a dinner date at the beach. And if you'd like to experience this storybook Valentine's Day menage, the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort has what you're looking for. For $125 per person, you can dig your toes into what they call a "Barefoot Dining" date. If it sounds quaint, cheesy, and romantic, that's because it is.
The only thing better than a dozen roses on Valentine's Day is a Rosé Champagne Dinner. Nothing pairs better with a mouthwatering dinner than a refreshing glass of Rosé; as far as the dinner menu goes, 3030 Ocean is hosting a five-course meal featuring oysters, ravioli, lobsters and more.
This isn't an event as much as an excuse to enjoy a good cocktail, and there aren't many better reasons to enjoy good cocktails than Valentine's Day. Steak 954 is offering up a special "Tuesday, I'm In Love" cocktail even though Valentine's Day is on a Wednesday this year. At $14 each, it's as good as their everyday cocktails, so you'll definitely want to swing by.

If you're more into mutual experiences than textbook dates, a couple's spa special is a romantic idea that relieves stress at the same time. The Atlantic Hotel's spa is one of the city's best relaxation centers, and they're offering couples' spa and massage specials throughout the month of February.
Valentine's Day may fall on a weekday, but that isn't a good reason not to consider a staycation, especially when the Sonesta on Fort Lauderdale Beach is one of your options. Tourists routinely fly from all over the world for the opportunity to stay here. If you decide to stay, expect chocolates strewn everywhere and a complimentary champagne bottle in your suite!

Well, they say oysters are an aphrodisiac, so what better time to test that idea than on Valentine's Day? Wild Sea Oyster offers a five-course dinner on Valentine's Day that's sure to satisfy all your cravings as well as plenty of drink options.
If we're really being honest, most good dates include two things: good food and good wine, and Vinos offers plenty of both. Well, Vinos has taps that pair well with their extensive wine selection, but we promise you'll be more than happy. With the mood lighting, romantic atmosphere, and soothing singer-songwriters who regularly perform, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better date spot. Seating is limited, so you'll definitely want to call ahead for a reservation.
Valentine's Day isn't just any day., so you shouldn't just have any date. It should be as special as the person you're sharing it with, and, hopefully, one of these Fort Lauderdale Valentine's Day events suits you and your boo!
