Valentine's Day Date Nights: St. Louis

An orchid show and a bar with more than two dozen chocolate martinis are just two of our picks for a Valentine’s Day date in St. Louis. See suggestions for a budget, mid-priced and luxe Valentine's celebration.


Missouri Botanical Garden ( No need to buy a 12-stem bouquet when the Missouri Botanical Garden will have more than 6,000 plants on display during the annual Orchid Show, starting February 9. The show costs $4 for St. Louis (city and county) residents, $8 for non-residents.

Molly’s in Soulard ( Spice things up with Cajun and Creole creations such as gumbo or jambalaya. Live music on Wednesday and Thursday nights jazzes the evening up even more. 


Helium Comedy Club ( A couple that laughs, lasts. Tickets are $20 to the Helium Comedy Club's Valentine’s Day with Pat McGann. 

SqWires (  In historic Lafayette Square, SqWires dishes upscale comfort food like seafood chowder, meat loaf or skillet mac & cheese with truffle goat cheese, wild mushrooms and herb breadcrumbs. Check the website for Valentine's Day specials. 


Fabulous Fox Theatre ( The ornate 1929 theatre feels romantic from the minute you step inside. From Feb. 7-19, see the musical comedy Something's Rotten!  Tickets run $25 to $88.

Bailey’s Chocolate Bar ( Open until 1 a.m., Bailey’s is the perfect place for after-dinner or after-the-show drinks and dessert. A full bar (with more than two dozen chocolate martinis) and an extensive dessert menu has a sweet treat for every appetite. We suggest the Lovers' Plate with mini bites of 11 desserts (including brownies, cake and sorbet), meant to be shared.
