A man and woman sit at a table. The woman plays with her hair.

It’s that time of the year again, when the day we all love to hate creeps up on us faster than you can say ‘Ferrero Rocher’. We say love to hate because although it might not be cool to admit it, are we really going to say no to a fancy dinner, particularly if it comes with wine and rose petals?

Whether you’re a Valentine’s enthusiast or you prefer to pretend that V Day doesn’t exist, the good news is that Brisbane is stepping up the romance this year. No plans yet? No problem. That’s what we’re here for. We’re sure we’ve found a way to spend Valentine’s Day for everyone. Here are some of Brisbane’s most epic places to take your date or even your bestie this Valentine’s Day.

Dive Into This Rooftop Pool Cinema

Forget Netflix and chill this Valentine's Day, instead get comfy on an inflatable pool recliner in W Brisbane’s pool instead.  Taking over the luxe hotel’s WET Deck for three romantic nights only, these open air cinemas will have you watching your favourite rom coms (think: Crazy, Stupid Love and The Proposal) from a prime position in the pool, with the option to slide off your recliner and into the water whenever you feel the urge. Bonus, you can get cocktails, bubbles, beer and tasty eats delivered right to your pool lounge. Packages start just $50 per person. If you're looking for one of the best things to do in Brisbane this Valentine's Day, this is it!
