So, we discussed the day of love if you’re half of a loved up couple (congrats, tell us your secrets) and here we are today to discuss celebrating singledom.
Which is cool because nights out with your girl gang are always a good time, as is the tingly feeling of potentially finding someone to jump into a twosome with and also partying in general.
Here we go with five fun times you can have on Valentine’s Day should you be keen on doing any of the above (from north to south).
Looking for love (or just a really fun night out)? Head to Topgolf this Valentine’s Day for a Single and Ready to Mingle Party! You get two hours of Topgolf game play from 6pm to 8pm (will be shared bays), a glass of champagne or beer on arrival and a Topgolf Lifetime Membership. Just $25 per person but you might also meet your soulmate so, priceless.
Where: Topgolf, Cnr Roadshow Way and Entertainment Drive, Gold Coast
Galentine’s Day is a celebration of female friendship and Boudoir Lounge is the perfect place for you and your girl crew to celebrate your fabulousness. Get the girls together for the perfect Valentine’s Day pampering but be quick, there are only 18 places per session. It’s $89 per person and you get a welcome cocktail, canapés for one hour plus choose from luxury beauty treatments including hair styling, a mini manicure and a Glo makeup application. FUN.
Where: 410/1 Como Cres, Southport
Celebrate Valentine’s Day (on the 15th though) with a cheeky blind date at Stingray Lounge. Think 50 first dates meets Crazy, Stupid, Love. Bring a friend, go by yourself, meet someone new – hey, why not invite your ex? Frolic the night away with a DJ line up presented by Radio Metro and a seriously tantalising cocktail list. It’s $10 entry, including a chambord margarita on arrival. Tickets here.
Where: QT Gold Coast, 7 Staghorn Ave, Surfers Paradise
Eat your heart out GC… this one is for you! This Valentine’s Day it’s a night for the girls at Hyde Paradiso. All ladies will receive $15 drink specials, $10 tapas sepcials and free bottomless fries from 4pm onwards. Sip cocktails by the sea with your friends, dance the night away to RnB tunes and live your best single life. Don’t mind if we do.
Where: Level 2, 8 The Esplanade, Surfers Paradise
The Island Rooftop
It’s a Valentine’s Day dating party at The Island Rooftop Bar this year with time slots for specific age groups and the opportunity to meet lots of new and interesting people in the one night. Tickets are $29 per person and there will be complimentary finger food in the breaks. Head to the local favourite for something a little bit different this February 14th.
Where: 3128 Surfers Paradise Boulevard, Surfers Paradise
Moxy’s Rooftop Bar
Head down to Cooly’s fave rooftop bar for a singles party to remember. There’s a wristband for singles, one for taken (couples also welcome) and one for it’s complicated. So really anyone can go but seems like a pretty good place to meet someone who also enjoys cocktails on a rooftop. Doors open from 12pm so settle in for a big day if you please.
Where: 2/152-154 Griffith St, Coolangatta
