2 MIN READ – It’s a day for love, and there's few places like being in the Loop to keep your romance alive. Celebrate you and your lover with intimate and enjoyable experiences downtown.

Sounds of Love

Obsession, devotion, sex and madness - sometimes lovers are a match made in heaven, or made in hell. Celebrate (or rebel against) Valentine's Day and the February onslaught of roses, hearts, and boxes of chocolate with these portraits of toxic love, tumultuous relationships, opposites attracting, and the painful passions of Bad Romance. Gene Siskel Film Center's February film series, Bad Romance is perfect for you and your lover (or enemy)! Learn more.

Bring your sweetheart to the Lyric Opera House this year for an evening of music, storytelling, and romance. Join them on February 6 for Verdi Voices in concert. You’ll hear beloved favorites from Aida, Otello, and more and be swept up by the lush sound of the Lyric Opera Orchestra. Learn more.
