February 14th comes around but once a year, and it really is the ultimate excuse to bask in the romance. At Hudson Yards, love is all around (including 1,100 feet above it all), so everyone can find a special way to be the perfect valentine.
Take your relationship to a new level.
Get the day off to an unforgettable start with a Sky-High Sunrise on Edge, the Western Hemisphere’s highest outdoor observation deck. Limited tickets are available for this exclusive Valentine’s Day-only experience (6-8am). Or make a night of it, gazing at the magical 360-degree panoramas. Choose the Champagne Admission tickets and toast your honey with a glass of bubbly too.
Share a meal to remember.
The Restaurants are pulling out all the stops for your divine night. You’ll get the royal treatment at Queensyard, where the elegant three-course menu of Executive Chef Brian Yurko includes house-made chocolates and a glass of bubbles. Wild Ink’s three-course special includes perilla leaf salad, crispy prawns and dark-chocolate-and-matcha lava cake. Spanish Diner is celebrating with gazpacho, pork meatballs and sangria. And at the recently opened Naked Tomato, you can share Israeli-inspired small plates and one of the gorgeous fish and meat entrées.
Delight with wow-worthy flowers and gifts.
Because your love is forever, give your sweetheart an arrangement from Venus ET Fleur’s Eternity® Roses. They live for a year (!) and come in hand-crafted vases, heart-shaped boxes, ombre arrangements and more. Hudson Yards’ Style Director Kate Powell has some other wonderful presents picked out for you too, from iconic jewels to luxe accessories to sweet treats.
Add a touch of glamour.
If you want to feel a little extra during your evening out, book a Valentine’s Day beauty service at Sephora. Spend 60 minutes with one of the highly skilled artists and you’ll leave with a complete attention-grabbing look—eyes, lips and face—and DIY tips and techniques you can rely on for all future date nights.
Head straight for dessert.
With so many amazing bakeries, chocolatiers and candy shops to choose from, you’ll have no trouble making the day a sweet affair. Stop by the newly opened Magnolia Bakery for a date-night sampler: two cupcakes and two of the new chocolate-covered-strawberry pudding. Does Valentine’s Day put you in more of a Parisian mood? Ladurée's special box of 8 macarons will transport you there. Chocolate lovers, meanwhile, will appreciate the classic heart-shaped boxes from both Li-Lac and Neuhaus. And Dylan's Candy Bar V-Day Collection is 100% Cupid-approved.
Book a little we-time.
Yes, you two deserve a night (or two) away from home. With Equinox Hotel’s “I Love You So Much It Hurts” package, you can work out with personal trainers or enjoy breakfast in bed and couples techno therapy. And because you’re right at Hudson Yards, you’ll have easy access to the neighborhood’s many other romantic delights as well.
