Valentine's Day Packages and More
If Valentine's Day baffles you as much as 90% of the rest of the country, sometimes it's best to just pony up and let the professionals handle the day. That way, if your date goes sour, you always have someone else to blame. Here are a few ideas we're confident will guarantee you a night to remember.
2 Nights 2 Legends at the Carlye
The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel, in Manhattan's Upper East Side has always been a symbol of decadence and refinement. This year, they're offering 2 Nights, 2 Legends to share with your loved one. The package includes a romantic suite for the 14th and 15th, nightly legendary cabaret entertainment (Sunday features Broadway best Christine Ebersole) a candle-lit dinner for two with Carlyle Syrah wine both nights, and to top it off, a couples massage at in-house spa, Sense. If you're flying in to New York for the occasion, this package is sure to give you the best uptown has to offer.
Package begins at $1395. To book, head to The Carlyle.
Soho House Valentine's Day Package
If downtown is more your scene, head to the ultra-exclusive Soho House in the center of the Meatpacking district. The package includes a three-night stay in one of their exquisitely designed rooms, daily breakfast, and champagne upon arrival. Following a Valentine's dinner in the restaurant, sure to be surrounded by a local celeb or two, guests will retreat to their room where a butler will have run a hot bubble bath and left another bottle of bubbly. All packages also include a gift bag from luxe British skincare line Cowshed. Rates are $2845 for the Playhouse and $3985 for the Playground suite. And it doesn't take a partner to sip champage at the Soho House. If you're flying solo this year, head to their Singles Valentine's Day Brunch ($45) at 1 PM on the 14th, open to hotel guests and members. To book either package or brunch, visit Soho House NYC.
Spice Market Valentine's Day & Chinese New Year
And while you're downtown, make sure to swing by Spice Market, where they'll be celebrating not only Valentine's Day, but also Chinese New Year, which both fall on the 14th. Their annual feast, designed by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, will celebrate the best of Southeast Asian cousine with dishes like Ginger Fried Rice and Spiced Chicken Samosas with Cilantro Yogurt. To book the $78 5-course meal, topped with Chocolate and Green Tea fortune cookies, head to Spice Market.
