Brisbane’s Best Valentine’s Day Events

Brisbane’s Best Valentine’s Day Events

Put your cute heels on, we’re heading out for date night.

By Astrid Taemets | 3rd February 2021

Hey lovebirds, we see you!

Whether you’re a hopeless romantic and treat your sweet to whatever they want, or just love spending time with your significant other, there’s no better day on the calendar to show someone how much you love them than Valentine’s Day.

Everton Park Hotel

The kiddos will be feeling the love, too, with Everton Park Hotel’s family friendly Valentine’s Day! Treat the whole fam to dinner in the bistro and there’ll still be room for date night, as the team keeps your little ones entertained with the help of Johnny the Jester, free carousel rides, and Valentine’s card making. Snag your spot here.


Wrapped up in a big red bow, this V-Day event is sure to tickle and delight you and yours. Spend the evening before the big day (that’s Feb 14 to you boys), indulging in decadence at the Vintaged Bar and Grill, Hilton for their Valentine’s Day Dinner event. From 6pm, the romance will be in full swing as a pianist serenades you both while you look deeply into each other’s eyes from across the table (too much?), and sip on sparkling. The menu – a three-course feast – is the icing on the cake, where dishes including confit pork belly, half a dozen oysters (a natural aphrodisiac) and entrees are on the cards. For mains, take your pick from pan-seared barramundi, 200g Beef City Black eye fillet steak, seared scallops and more, but leave room for dessert, for nothing’s sweeter than sharing your favourite sugary-dish with your sweetheart.

Tickets to this ultimate date night are $95 per person, and can be purchased here.

The Lord Alfred Hotel

Your love will go down in history when you spend Valentine’s Day at this 150-year-old historic venue. You’ll be dining in style with offerings like katsu chicken, classic chicken parmis, and beer battered barramundi served alongside house made tartare – it’s safe to say you won’t be starved for choice. Book your table here and dress accordingly for the feast ahead!

Portside Wharf

Even the pickiest date will find something to love at Portside Wharf! Belvedere Bar n Grill is dishing out a flavour-packed set menu, @Mr & Mrs Jones will throw in the fun with Drag Bingo, and Gusto da Gianni’s indulgent three-course menu is sure to impress. Byblos Bar & Restaurant’s lavish hospitality will deliver in a delightful three-course menu, Sono Japanese Restaurant is offering a tantalising six-course menu, and a classic movie date at Dendy is made even more special with limited edition choc tops and a special 60th anniversary screening of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Check out the whole line-up here.

The French are masters of the art of romance, so why not unleash your inner-Parisian for a night of pure passion? From Friday 12 –14 Feb, celebrate, indulge and say ‘je t’aime’ to your Valentine with a dinner for two at Sofitel Brisbane Central’s Thyme2 restaurant. From 5.30pm, swoon your way through a three-course French-inspired dinner, accompanied by a bottle of Louis Roederer French Champagne. Bookings start from $184 per person, and come with a romantic gift – c’est bon! If this doesn’t tickle your fancy, perhaps a French-inspired High Tea at the Sofitel Brisbane Central’s Cuvee Lounge Bar is more your speed. Sip on Champagne and dine like a true Parisian on pastries, scones, finger sandwiches and sweets. Available Saturday and Sunday only, bookings for the Cuvee Lounge Bar are $69 per person. Book your memorable date night experience with Sofitel, here.


Love comes in many forms, and the Regatta has three of them. Whether you’re looking for an intimate date night destination, a lavish dining experience or a place to have a laugh, lovebirds will find what exactly they’re looking for this V-Day at the ‘Gatta.

Treat your special someone to a lunch or dinner experience on the level 2 laced veranda, where lobster risotto, pan-seared ocean trout and red velvet fondant are on the menu. Offering the the best seat in the house for sipping Champagne and taking in river city views (romance, much?!), the Iconic Veranda Package sure is a swoonfest! Tickets are $95 each and can be purchased here.

A little less intimate, the Boatshed Valentine’s three-course lunch or dinner experience is a choice pick for those who know a way to a man’s heart is through his stomach. The decadent event includes a glass of Champagne on arrival, plus mouth-watering dishes including the steak and lobster plate, which includes the Beef Off 2020 winning sirloin with butter, poached WA lobster, rustic chips and cream sauce. You drooling yet? Book your meal-for-two here.

Last (but certainly not least!), celebrate love with cocktails and share plates in the Regatta courtyard from 3pm on Valentine’s Day, where live music will get your hips movin’ and a-shakin’. Not much of a planner? No worries! Fun doesn’t need a booking!
