7 Ways You Could Spend Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas

Last updated: February 19, 2016 at 7:14 am. Posted by in Las Vegas Restaurants, Things to Do in Las Vegas. 2 Comments on 7 Ways You Could Spend Valentine’s Day in Las Vegas.

Ah, Valentine’s Day. Depending on your point of view (and current relationship status), it’s either the perfect occasion to wine and dine that special person in your life, a nasty reminder of how alone you really are, or an awkwardly forced “holiday” created by marketing people to sell overpriced roses and chocolate truffles.

But we like to think of this Hallmark holiday as an excuse to take advantage of all the special V-day packages and deals offered by Vegas attractions, restaurants and shows. So, if you need some inspiration, here are some things to do in Las Vegas on Valentine’s Day , whether you’re paired up, hanging with pals or going solo.

1. Take a trip to Paris

Paris Las Vegas

Even better than the real thing.

There’s nowhere more romantic to spend Valentine’s Day than Paris, right? Good thing we have one of those right here on the Strip. Paris Las Vegas is offering a special V-day package that includes two express passes for the Eiffel Tower Experience, two Moët & Chandon Champagne drinks, an 8-by-6-inch souvenir photo, and one lock for the Vegas version of Paris, France’s famous (and now banned) “love locks on the bridge.” Got you beat, France!

2. Spend an evening with Mariah Carey

For the Mariah Carey superfan, there is no better gift you can give than the “Lambily Love” Valentine’s Day package. This $1,500, only-in-Vegas experience includes a front orchestra ticket to “MARIAH #1 TO INFINITY” at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace (with VIP priority entrance), a limited-edition VIP laminate and lanyard, a post-show photo opp with Mariah, one Mariah Carey CD and a $100 gift voucher to the Mariah store. BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE, LITTLE LAMB! You’ll also receive VIP entrance to FIZZ after the show, where not only will unlimited champagne and passed hors d’oeuvres be available for two hours, but where you’ll share a Valentine’s Day Champagne toast with Mariah as well.

We recommend pairing your “Lambily Love” package with a pre-show dinner at one of Caesars Palace’s world-class restaurants. You’ll find special V-day menus at Nobu Restaurant, Old Homestead Steakhouse, Rao’s and Restaurant Guy Savoy.

3. Dine above it all

It’s not true love unless you share a Witch Doctor.

With its location on the 50th floor of Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino’s Masquerade Tower, VooDoo Steak offers stunning views of Las Vegas. But it also cooks up some delicious dishes. You and your special someone can enjoy both on Valentine’s Day with a special menu that includes lobster ravioli, veal chop in a Marsala reduction, and a rose water Raspberry Napoleon for dessert. After dinner, sneak upstairs to VooDoo Rooftop Nightclub & Lounge for drinks, dancing and an unmatched panoramic view of the Vegas Strip.

4. Share a sweet Strip-side meal

If your idea of a romantic dinner isn’t rising above it all, but being surrounded by the excitement of the city, you might want to book a table at HEXX Kitchen + Bar at Paris Las Vegas. Its Strip-side heated patio ensures you’re surrounded by all the glittering lights of Las Vegas while dining on a special prix fixe menu for only $65 per person. The four-course meal not only finishes off with a decadent strawberry panna cotta, but also includes a tasting selection of HEXX’s housemade chocolate.

5. Go ga-ga for Giada

If you haven’t already tried Giada De Laurentiis’ namesake Las Vegas Italian restaurant at The Cromwell, perhaps Valentine’s Day is the perfect time, because the center-Strip celeb chef hot spot is serving a special tasting menu for $125 per person. The four-course meal includes antipasti for two, red wine risotto or lobster ravioli, prosciutto-wrapped red snapper or roasted lamb loin, and drunken berries or chocolate macaroon cake.

6. LINQ up above the Strip

Not a bad spot for a proposal, either. Just sayin’.

Share a Champagne toast with your sweetheart 550 feet above the Las Vegas Strip on the High Roller, the world’s tallest observation wheel. The LINQ Promenade is offering a number of Valentine’s Day packages that bundle that bubbly-infused High Roller ride with either a lunchtime sundae at Ghirardelli Ice Cream and Chocolate Shop or a three-course dinner at your choice of Brooklyn Bowl, Flour & Barley, Chayo Mexican Kitchen + Tequila Bar, or Off The Strip. Call 702-322-0591 to reserve one of these sky-high packages.

7. Spend quality time with the girls

If this Titanic sinks, it’s only to the bottom of your stomach.

For those of you forsaking Valentine’s Day traditions and opting to celebrate your single-hood instead (or if you just like to do things in groups), Carmine’s inside The Forum Shops at Caesars Palace has a few options for you on Feb. 14. The $125 “Girl’s Gone Garlic” package features a three-course, shareable meal with salad, pasta and the enormous Titanic Sundae, as well as a bottle of Prosecco. Or, you can do away with the gastronomic foreplay and go straight for the $65 “My Heart Will Not Go On” option that gives you what you really want: the dessert and the wine.

    Well, a lot of options for couples.
    What about single ladies?
