Here are our top five recommendations for a romantic Valentine’s Day in DC.

Start The Day With A Luxurious Brunch

While Valentine’s Day falls on a Wednesday this year, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy a delicious weekday morning meal to start off the day right. Our pick for the best weekday brunch in the city is Gallery Place’s The Smith, which serves classic fresh-off-the-griddle options like waffles and buttermilk pancakes along with a plethora of egg platters.

Take A Stroll Around DC’s Most Beautiful Attractions

While February in DC can get snowy, it’s never too chilly for a walk around the city. Take your significant other on a tour of some of the city’s most stunning spots, including the quaint Georgetown neighborhood. Pick up a hot cup of java from one of the neighborhood’s many coffee shops, like Saxbys, to keep yourself warmed up.

Catch A Show Together

Head out for a night of culture with a date to the theater. You and your Valentine’s Day date can sit side-by-side in the audience while you take in a show like the Kennedy Center’s West Side Story, as performed, by the NSO Pops. You’ll love getting to enjoy the songs that make up this romantic story together.

Go For A Romantic Dinner

Finish off your day with the all-time Valentine’s Day tradition of a romance-filled dinner together. St. Greg Kitchen & Bar, located in the hotel’s lobby, only steps from your room, is the perfect place to share a meal together. Split a bottle of wine and order some Mediterranean appetizers for an intimate night together.
