Love it or hate it, February 14th is coming around the corner fast! Whether you plan to indulge or steer well clear from all the love hearts, we’ve put together the ultimate Valentine’s Day guide for couples and singletons alike.
Nurture your competitive side | The perfect pastime for those who aren’t fond of clichés. Pool, tabletop football, darts and an international beer assortment just shy of the hundreds – the B&B Sportsbar has it all for a showdown between you and your partner, family or friends. Open until late, this one is for the night owls amongst us.
Crack open a bottle of wine | A fine wine almost always leads to great conversations. Find yourself good company and head to a local wine bar – for a more intimate setting, Felsenkeller or Platzhirsch come highly recommended. Not the wine type of guy or gal… divert to Skylounge for cocktails and far-reaching views of Zug.
Set the scene at dinner | Sure it may be the cookie-cutter approach, but one simply can’t go wrong with a candlelit dinner. To avoid any disappointment, we recommend you sort your dinner reservations pronto. If you’re looking to go all out, Hafenrestaurant is serving up a storm with their dedicated Valentine’s Day menu consisting of four courses for 89CHF per head excluding drinks.
Take your date to the cinema | Relive the good old high school days on a date night at Kino Zug. Tickets start at 17CHF per head plus if you want to do it right, you’ll have to factor in the popcorn and an extra-large fizzy drink to share.
Relax over breakfast | Start the day with a French farmer’s breakfast in a rustic ambiance at Tisch + Bar. There are plenty of dishes to choose from including waffles and French toast, and particularly the breakfast for two rises to the special occasion. For 78CHF, you’ll receive a full-on breakfast feast plus sparkling wine for that extra bit of oomph.
Drop by the chocolatiers | There’s no better time of year to succumb to the delicious decadence of Swiss artisan chocolate than Valentine’s Day. Swing by Läderach, Sprüngli or Aeschbach and stock up for the weekend.
Party away at singles’ night | Feeling a bit like the Grinch during Christmas? Unite with singletons and dance into the early morning hours at Lounge & Gallery. There will even be stickers to indicate whether your fellow club-goers are ‘single and ready to mingle’, ‘happily taken’ or ‘somewhere in-between’. Doors open at 23.00 and entry costs 15CHF per head.
