Valentine's Day Date Ideas in Toronto

Valentine’s Date Ideas in Toronto

Planning a date night can be stressful—especially when you’re trying to impress. That’s why we’ve collaborated with some of Toronto’s finest institutions to help you organize a Valentine’s Day to remember.


Feast on food, then on fashion

Galentine's Day

As Gina Barreca once said, “It's not that diamonds are a girl's best friend, but it's your best friends who are your diamonds.” On February 13th, gather your girlfriends and join us for a glamorous lunch to revel in the joys of female friendship (and the existence of champagne). Extend the festivities by making your way to the The Royal Ontario Museum to celebrate the House of Dior’s 70th anniversary, where you’ll see an exhibit featuring a selection of Christian Dior’s most iconic daytime and evening wear designs.

 

Time-Warp Lunch Date 

A Landmark Valentine’s Day

Who ever said date nights have to happen in the evening? This Valentine’s Day, join us for a memorable lunch before stepping across the road to explore Casa Loma–the former estate of Sir Henry Mill Pellatt, a prominent Toronto financier, industrialist and military man. An unabashed romantic, Sir Henry hired the noted architect E.J. Lennox to help him realize a lifelong dream—the creation of a medieval-style castle on a hill overlooking Toronto.

Fun fact: This place is so special that even Michael Jackson once tried to purchase it!

 

Would you like some art with that?

“BANG BANG” by Kat Sandler—A white playwright uses the shooting of an unarmed young Black man by a police officer as a “jumping off point” for his hit play that is soon to be adapted into a major movie. As Hollywood comes knocking for the writer, he makes a surprise visit to the home of the officer involved. With Sandler’s trademark wit, BANG BANG traces the impact of what it means to be inspired by true events.
