Unique Ideas for Valentine's Day in Denver

Take a Cooking Class

It doesn’t matter if you are a pretty good home cook, or thinking about auditioning for the next season of ‘Worst Cooks in America’…a cooking class can be a fun and tasty way to celebrate Valentine’s Day!

Uncorked Kitchen offers date night classes, wine tastings, and more:

Take a Tour

Denver is full of rich, interesting history. If you like seeing ‘behind the scenes’, start your Valentine’s Day date by learning about a venue, factory, or part of the city.

Tour a Whiskey Distillery at Stranahan’s (a tasting is part of the experience!):

Learn about the art of old-fashioned candy making at Hammond’s:

Go to the dark side with a ghostly pub crawl and historic tour of Denver’s haunted pubs:

Visit a Speakeasy

There is something inherently sexy about a Speakeasy and chef-created cocktails.

Be adventurous and try something new at Green Russel:


See a Comedy Show

The worst part about a comedy show is the finale, because you never want it to end! Snuggle up in an intimate venue like Comedy Works, grab a cocktail (or two), and laugh!

See whose on the mic at Comedy Works:

Go to the Dinner Theater

Dinner theater is seeing a comeback. Enjoy dinner together before the show starts! Advance tickets mean no long waits to get a table, and it’s a super fun experience.

Go to a Mystery Dinner

What came before puzzle rooms? Who dun it in the alley with a wrench? This is a fun and enjoyable way to get to know other couples, while solving a mystery over dinner.

Solve the crime at Adam’s Mystery Dinner Theater


See the Symphony

Colorado is home to one of the best professional symphony orchestras.

In February, check out their Classical Romance series! Add-on experiences include a party with chocolate, wine, and roses (tickets sell out fast).


Plan a Scavenger Hunt

Plan a fun date starting at Union Station, visit a local favorite bar, stop for tacos at your first date spot, and end at home with popcorn and your favorite movie! Plant clues at each location and include a surprise with each.

Toss a proposal in there (hey, what can I say? I’m a wedding planner! Let’s get you to the aisle already!) at the end and it’s a Valentine’s Day that you’ll never forget.

Enjoy High Tea at the Brown Palace Hotel

Not the type of couple to stay up late?

Spend a lazy, romantic, high-class afternoon over tea and crumpets at Denver’s famous historic Brown Palace Hotel. Tickets sell fast, plan in advance.
