Love is in the air! Whether you are looking to spend Valentine’s Day with your significant other or with your best friends, downtown Boulder has many options to celebrate the holiday. Spread the love with these ideas to sweep your special someone off their feet!
Start your evening with a three course Valentine’s Day meal at Jill’s Restaurant & Bistro at St Julien Hotel and Spa. Begin with a Lobster Bisque, made with tarragon cream and brioche crouton, before indulging in Bone-In Kurobuta Pork Loin served with maitake risotto, quince glaze and pickled chayote. Finish the meal with Strawberry-Rose Panna Cotta, garnished with strawberry sauce, kaffir lime and honeycomb. Make a reservation to secure seats for two at this romantic restaurant.
Next, it’s time to grab some drinks. The Bitter Bar has the perfect cozy atmosphere to help you enjoy the company of your Valentine. Order “That Pink Drink” or “Pillow Talk” cocktails to spice up the night in a colorful and sweet way. This neighborhood bar never fails to provide happy vibes and is the perfect spot for conversations!
After finishing your cocktail, how about a little something sweet? Swing by Piece, Love, and Chocolate to fall in love at first sight. For chocoholics, check out their Large Valentine’s Day basket, filled with a 24-piece truffle collection, a Kirsch Cherry Marzipan Heart and many more assorted chocolates.
Want to satisfy your sweet tooth with some gelato? Make your special someone melt at Gelato Boy! Dive into a pint of the chocolate hazelnut crunch or the lavender poppy. If you prefer dairy-free options, indulge in a pint of strawberry gelato.
And if your valentine is visiting for the weekend, or for a special holiday stay, consider spending a couple nights at the Hotel Boulderado. The hotel features great options for food and drinks - The Corner Bar, License No. 1 and Spruce Farm & Fish. Choose their “Love Worth Remembering” package that includes a house-made ginger chocolate bar, sparkling wine and a special breakfast for two at Spruce Farm & Fish. The Hotel Boulderado is the perfect place to indulge in luxury accommodations for Valentine’s Day.
