WHERE TO GO
#1: Warehouse Hotel
For a relaxing Valentine’s Day weekend, check into the newest boutique hotel in town: the Warehouse Hotel. Situated along the Singapore River, the rooms boast a minimalist, industrial-chic aesthetic. The hotel also has houses Asian-inspired restaurant Po, as well as a hip lobby bar, to fulfill any romantic dinner date needs.
#2: SPRMRKT Kitchen + Bar
Upscale dining establishment SPRMRKT Kitchen + Bar is serving a seven-course Valentine’s Day menu that is as photogenic as it is delicious. With its marble-topped tables, pastel pink seats and floor-to-ceiling murals serving as the backdrop, this place makes dining out on February 14 a lot less cliche.
#3: The Summerhouse
The Summerhouse is a newly opened restaurant that espouses the farm-to-table dining concept. Located in Seletar Aerospace Park, the 90-seater will be serving a six-course Valentine’s Day dinner that will include wholesome dishes like buckwheat porridge and Iberico pork.
#4: The National Museum of Singapore
Whether or not you’re into art, you – and your date – will enjoy checking out the National Museum of Singapore‘s recently launched gallery, named Gallery10, that focuses entirely on digital art.
#5: The Projector
Skip your usual movie date and check out independent cinema The Projector instead, which will be screening award-winning flick La La Land as well as a Valentine’s Day special, Southside With You, which outlines former American president Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama’s love story.
WHAT TO WEAR
#1: An eye-catching floral dress
Wearing a floral dress is playing it safe. How to take it up a notch: Opt for separates with bold floral prints, as well as ones that come with fitted waists for a more figure-flattering silhouette.
#2: A fringed vest
Vests or cover-ups with interesting details will lend texture to a simple frock.
#3: A striped ensemble
Stripes will never go out of style – play with different widths and proportions to keep it fresh.
#4: A hot red number
Who doesn’t want to dress to impress? A flowy red maxi is both comfortable and sophisticated.
#5: A classic LWD
Forget the LBD – a classic white dress, when paired with bright-coloured accessories, is a more refreshing and chic alternative.
