Going to be staying with us in Auckland this valentine with that someone special? Then you have come to the right place as Auckland is brimming with activities and events that can make the day – and whole weekend – as romantic as possible! We have got our favorite four things that are on to help inspire you this valentine’s day!
White Rabbit On The Park
There’s nothing more romantic than a nice fancy dinner, and this restaurant is catering their menu for the big day! This Drake Street eatery has certainly caught our eye. Not only do White Rabbit On The Park serve up great food and drink they have only gone the extra mile and created a three-course, Valentine’s Day menu for all the love birds out there too. Think salmon ceviche with citrus and avocado, pork belly with seared scallops, along with a citrus panna cotta to finish and you’ll be swooning over the food (and your loved one!) in no time!
Roses Are Red
How about just a simple classic romantic gesture of the gift of flowers! The OG of Auckland flower delivery and a staple of any self-respecting list for fantastic Auckland flowers comes Roses Are Red. With a local history spanning more than 30 years, these florists are the real deal boasting beautiful blooms that will last the distance. Not only do they guarantee free same day delivery, but they’ll send you a snap of the exact flower that you have ordered—how’s that for peace of mind? Oh, and did we mention that the Auckland-wide delivery is also free?!
Duck Island Ice Cream
There is something romantic and classicly cute about a date at the ice cream parlor! This unique parlor has amassed quite the following since they opened thanks to its fun, often unusual flavors, many of which are also vegan. Indulge your inner child with a cone of sprinkle-filled ‘fairy bread’—dig your way through a cup of marshmallow and chocolate-studded ‘ambrosia’—or, if you’re feeling super adventurous, check out the black sticky rice or raspberry, coconut, and coriander offerings (they’re actually surprisingly good!).
Burger Burger Matchmaking
Not everyone has someone special this valentine’s day, and that’s okay, as Burger Burger has your back!
Over the past five years, the burger joint has held the matchmaking event that invites singles to put their hearts on the line to see if they can meet their next hunk of burning love (or date for the night, at least). In past years the speed dating event has attracted singles by the hundreds for food, drink, and mingling!
