Our Picks for Celebrating Valentine's For Every Occasion or Status
FEBRUARY 10, 2019
BY LILY KRAMLICH-TAYLOR
Whether or not you love to celebrate Valentine’s or love to hate on the unofficial holiday it’s coming up this Thursday! And there is a lot going on around Dallas to celebrate, so we have outlined places going above and beyond for the occasion, whether you are single or not! If you are skipping Valentine’s though, and focusing on Galentine’s, head here to our event guide for gals!
three-course Dinner for two
Moxie’s Grill & Bar
Maybe you wouldn’t think of Moxie’s when you think “most romantic” places in Dallas. However, off to the side of the main bar area filled with TVs and energy, is a very serene area filled with dining tables, brick and plants to create a romantic atmosphere when the sun goes down! And Moxie’s is ready to welcome you in with a special three-course meal and a glass of Prosecco each, for two for $95 total.
Additionally, Moxie’s has teamed up with its Crescent neighbors and is hosting an ultimate Valentine’s giveaway that includes a night at the Hotel Crescent Court, spa credit at the Hotel’s spa, breakfast at Ascension, 1 hour Bay rental at City Golf Club and a dinner for two at Moxie’s! Enter here!

CUPCAKE AND BEER PAIRING
Luck at Trinity Groves
Maybe dinner isn’t your thing and you’d rather keep to the drinks while skipping straight to dessert! Well LUCK at Trinity Groves has you covered with a cupcake and beer pairing! Oh and the cupcakes are spiked with liquor from local purveyor Cheesecake Royale! There are three seatings at 6:15 pm, 7:30 pm, and 8:30 pm for $25 each but seating and availability is limited so make sure to reserve!
3011 Gulden Ln #112, Dallas, TX 75212 | TICKETS
FIVE-COURSE Dining experience
The French Room
If you’ve been waiting for the perfect occasion to try the beautiful French Room, this Valentine’s is a great choice! It’s a special dining experience in its own right, where you can enjoy a five-course elevated dinner with the option to add wine pairings. We highly recommend it - The French Room has one of the most romantic atmospheres and offers some of the best gastronomy in the city so you can’t go wrong by going all out! Plus, their salon and lounge is great for a cocktail before or after!

VEGAN VALENTINE’S DINNER
Mudhen Meat & Greens
If you are vegan, don’t worry…you can still go out to eat on Valentine’s too! There are several places around town hosting Vegan-friendly dinners, but the one that caught our eye was the Farmer’s Market farm-to-table restaurant, Mudhen! It includes three courses plus dessert to share. Cost is $45 per person for the vegan prix fixe and $55 for the meat option (if you love Mudhen but also love meat.) And the Real Ale Brewery and wine pairing offerings available for $25 per person. For reservations beginning at 5:00 pm, call 214-698-7000

Babes & Bros: A valentine’s Mixer
Ok, this one is for the single folks! Rhonda of The Skinny Arm (who hosts the Bubbly & Beats NYE party) is hosting something for those who are looking for a Valentine’s date! This event is not speed dating, but it's more than just a cocktail party. Part of the evening will facilitate a pressure-free environment to meet new friends and potential romantic connections. The event is from 7-9pm, giving you time to continue your evening if you meet someone interesting. Grab your babes and bring your bros, because you don't want to miss this mixer!
2803 Main Street, Dallas, Texas 75226 | TICKETS
And this last pick of ours is for both the single and non-single! If you are the type who wants to skip being “boring” and “cliche”, but more so have a fun evening of games and drinking, check out the Cidercade’s Stoplight Party. If you don’t know how this type of party works, wear red is taken, yellow if its complicated and green if you’re ready to mingle! Tickets include admission to the Cidercade with 5 hours of all the arcade game play, and all-you-can-eat BBQ from Slow Bone!
