Valentine's Day for Singles


Posted  18 days ago  in  Trending, Things to Do

2 MIN READ – It’s a day for love, but singles know that sometimes the best love is the kind you feel for yourself. There’s plenty to do downtown in the Loop on your own or with your friends on this Hallmark holiday, so don’t let your relationship status stop you from celebrating.

Treat yourself to a solo staycation

Is there anything more relaxing than hanging out in a fancy hotel all by yourself? Enjoy a luxurious staycation downtown in the Loop at a wide variety of hotels. Start your search at the Kimpton Gray, which features a few great packages perfect for a solo Valentine’s Day. Their offer “BLOOM Just for You!” features an over-the-top floral experience that includes a suite filled with flowers from Flower Firm ($650 value), floral drawn bath, and two concierge cocktails. This offer is available for stays Feburary 11-15, 2021, and must be booked at least five days in advance. Or check out their offer “You’re So Cute I Could Bottle You Up!” Enjoy a cocktail tasting with their Director of Concierge Services and receive six personally-designed labeled and made-from-scratch bottled cocktails to-go. While you’re at the Kimpton Gray, be sure to get a reservation for Boleo, which reopens for indoor dining beginning February 12. If you book their “Boleo is Back!” package, you can secure your reservation and get two cocktails on the house. This offer is available Thursday-Saturday nights and Valentine’s Day Sunday.

Visit a museum

Visiting a museum by yourself is such a delight. You don’t have to worry about moving through exhibits too quickly or slowly, but rather just float along at your own pace. Check out major players like the Art Institute of Chicago, or fly a little more under the radar with a spot like the Museum of Contemporary Photography. Experience newcomer Museum of Illusions, or stroll through your favorite downtown streets and take in the world-class public art in the Loop. The possibilities are endless, but plan ahead—you will likely need to reserve tickets in advance and familiarize yourself with COVID-19 protocols.
