Date Night DTLA Ideas for Valentines Day

Happenings / February 12, 2020


Cupid’s sharp arrow blazes past a dozen red roses, expensive champagne, decadent chocolate truffles, an oversized stuffed teddy bear, and a puntastic card to strike the wall calendar, which is open to the month of February.

This can only mean one thing: it’s time to make your Valentine’s Day plans. Here are five Downtown LA ideas to kickstart your own brainstorm.

In the mood for a free concert? Head over to Grand Park for sprawling lawns, illuminated fountains and bright pink benches. Pack a picnic or sample this year’s lineup of food trucks under the moonlight.

Looking for a way to upgrade the traditional movie date night for this special occasion? Street Food Cinema screens the Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone romantic musical La La Land, with specialty cocktails, a DJ, and a photo booth. 

Maybe you and your date want to try the Lost Spirits Distillery Tour? It’s not your average adult beverage educational experience. More of an immersive Willy Wonka-esque journey that’s half amusement park ride, and half-mad scientist laboratory and unapologetically inspired by Pirates of the Caribbean

If you prefer to walk on the wild side, venture below street level to discover the hidden tunnels, former speakeasies, and lore of the city’s underbelly with Cartwheel Art’s Underground LA tour. Get an up-close look at the legendary secret passageways once used to transport booze during Prohibition.

And if that kind of romantic excursion is too real? Escape into cutting edge virtual reality at Two Bit Circus. Tons of classic arcade cabinets in a large space with pinball, air hockey, and… a liquor license. 

However you like to customize your Valentine’s Day date night, Downtown LA has you covered! We love having our studios near these romantic events.
