Valentine's Day in Edinburgh
It's Cupid's birthday aka Valentine's Day, which means Edinburgh is all loved-up. Whether you're celebrating with mates, that special someone or solo (as RuPaul says 'if you can't love yourself how the hell are you gonna love somebody else?') we've hand-picked the best happenings around the city and put them together in this nifty guide. From quirky club nights to romantic dinners, stylish cocktail bars to fun experiences, we've got them all right here. Check out our top recommendations of things to do this Valentine's Day.
Head on over to the oh-so cosy Browns Brasserie in the Georgian Quarter for a Valentine's Day meal that oozes romance. Snuggle up together and share some delicious comfort food, after all the way to someone's heart is through their belly.
Nothing says love quite like a fancy meal, and Gaucho is always a winner. Tuck into mouthwateringly succulent steaks with the finest wine as you sit back in leather chairs admiring the view from the floor-to-ceiling windows, now that all sounds very opulent.
If you're looking for something a little more laid-back, this could be just the one. Serving up affordable pizzas, beer, cocktails and over 35 gins, you'll have plenty to do with Xbox games, retro arcade machines, pool and Scotland's only Trilliards Table, whatever that is.
What better way to get sparks flying than with a gloriously indulgent whisky and chocolate masterclass? Nibble on artisan chocolate that's expertly paired with the finest whisky for a sublime flavour combination, it's an educational, fun and delicious date idea.
This reservation-only bar is bursting with cool vibes and is sure to send hearts aflutter this Valentine's Day. Head over to make an impression on a first date or have a couple of drinks before tucking into their delicious menu of modern cuisine.
This quirky haunt is a great little spot for gin-lovers, whether you're dropping in for a quick drink or two, or fancy a full-blown masterclass experience. You'll be able to watch gin destill before your very eyes as you sip away and nibble at one of their delightful charcuterie boards.
Enjoy a romantic dinner at one of the city's most cherished restaurants. You'll wow your date with some stunning sharing plates such as the house black dhal, pau bhaji and the chef's special salli boti, a mouthwatering tender lamb dish.
