Valentine's Day Fun in Louisville!
By the time February rolls around we are well past the holiday break and often sick and tired of being cooped up due to the winter weather. What better excuse to leave our cabin fever behind and explore the myriad options for good, warm fun than Valentine’s Day in Louisville?
The key to a romantic and fun Valentine’s Day in Louisville is planning ahead. Whether you are planning dinner and a movie, a concert, a play, or headed out to dance, call ahead and secure your spot!
Maybe an ANTI VALENTINE'S DAY PARTY is your speed this year. Look no further than Monnik Beer Company. You can find Monnik in the up and coming Schnitzelburg neighborhood adjacent to Germantown. It’s a fun spot with great beers on tap and additionally they are “….offering creative takes on pub fare in a casual dining setting.” Their meats are locally sourced and their specials change based on what’s in season and locally available. Who knows? Maybe you will find love on Valentine’s Day at this contrarian event.
Maybe your valentine is a Beatles fanatic! Headliners Music Hall is always a great spot to catch live music in Louisville and they have you covered for Valentine’s evening. As the Beatles famously sang, “All you need is love” and Abbey Road LIVE! will play two sets of The Beatles best love songs to get you and your date moving and grooving. But again, don’t procrastinate and get your tickets now.
The Louisville Palace is one of the most treasured spots in the all of Louisville. Originally opened in 1928, the Spanish Baroque interior is immediately inspiring even before an evening’s event begins. For Valentine’s Day you can mix in some 90’s nostalgia as well as you and your date catch Ghost, starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, and Whoopi Goldberg. Go scoop up your tickets before they sell out.
Maybe your Valentine’s Day includes a day out with the family. Safai Coffee Shop in the heart of the Highlands on Bardstown Rd is a great spot for gourmet coffee and delicious crepes. On February 10th it will be the spot to bring the kids for a Kid's Valentines Paint Party by Paint It Sweet. “One ticket will provide you with a pre-sketched canvas, all your supplies, and a cupcake.” An artist will be on hand to help you and your child with all your artistic endeavors. Tickets are going fast.
Again, whatever you decide to do to make Valentine’s Day memorable this year, make sure to make reservations and plan ahead. Whether you are looking for love, already in love, or ambivalent about it all I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day in Louisville.
