Maybe you met at a friend’s party where you shot jokes back and forth at rapid speed, chemistry positively radiating off your skin. Maybe it was a Tinder match – one that actually ended in true love and not a disappointing date. Or, maybe you met in the office and bonded over a particularly boring accounts meeting. Either way, if you’ve successfully manoeuvred your way through the messy, complicated and scary world of dating and made it through to the other side, significant other and all, then congratulations. Valentine’s Day is time to celebrate!
This Valentine’s Day we are ditching all the usual suspects in favour of something a little more romantic. Log out of Netflix and get off the sofa, because, thanks to the good people at Treasury Brisbane, we’ve discovered the perfect way to treat your someone special this Valentine’s Day. We’re talking bottles of champagne, that exxy dress you love (but never have the chance to wear), a night at one of Brisbane’s most luxurious hotels, and a four-course dinner. No need to thank us – just get out there and woo your boo.
Check In (To Check Out)
Because what is a romantic getaway without a luxurious hotel stay? Boasting stunning river, Queen’s Park and city views, as well as opulent amenities and comforts, an overnight stay at Treasury Brisbane is as romantic as it gets.
Pre-Dinner Drinks At Ryan’s On The Park
Move on down to Ryan’s On The Park, a classic lounge bar overlooking the picturesque Queen’s Park, for a pre-drink tipple. Whether it’s one of their local tapped-brews or a bubbly glass of sparkling, you won’t be able to find a finer destination for a drink. If preparing a gift has slipped your mind, don’t panic. As part of the Valentine’s Day package, guests also receive a stunning Tiffany & Co. crystal heart gift box valued at $125 that you can give to your date or keep for yourself if you’re feeling cheeky.
If you’re a bit of a foodie you should be feeling pretty excited by now because the next stage of your uber-romantic evening is a four-course dinner at The Lab Restaurant and Bar. One of Brisbane’s most romantic fine dining restaurants, The Lab, focuses on transforming good-quality, fresh produce into contemporary and mouth-watering dishes. Whether it’s the scallops with parsnip, apple and riberry puree, or the organic sirloin with potato galette, asparagus and morel cream, each dish is a delicious display of just how good Brisbane’s foodie scene is. And, with a bottle of Domaine Chandon included, you can toast to your love (and to more getaways together). Just try not to drool in front of your date…
Time For A Nightcap
If, after your decadent meal, you’re still craving something extra, make your way to The Kitty for a nightcap with a difference. Easily one of our fave cocktail bars, The Kitty is breathtaking and will surely impress your date. Think dark oak interiors, sky-high ceilings, and stunning views of Brisbane, as well as some of the best cocktails on the east coast. With vouchers for two classic cocktails, there’s no better way to end your evening.
Rise And Shine
Fend away thoughts of work for a little bit longer as you end your mini-getaway with an à la carte breakfast for two in The Lab Restaurant and Bar. After a getaway like this, you’ll be wishing it were Valentine’s Day every day.
If this sounds like the perfect way to spend Valentine’s Day, head to their site now to book your place! Bookings are $488 per couple, and your purchase of the From Treasure With Love package includes one of only 30 entries into the draw to win a $1000 Tiffany & Co. gift card! We can’t think of a sweeter way to finish the most romantic holiday if the year.
