Revere Hotel Downtown Boston

Escape the torrential snowfall and bleak, glacial temperature this winter by heating up your Valentine’s Day. The entire New England area is suffering from cabin fever; the unrelenting weather has made venturing outside and living socially a chore. Staying inside and snuggling up with your significant other may be tempting, but true romance lies outside your home and outside of the box.

The Voice of Downtown Boston has unearthed three romantic occasions to undertake on this Valentine’s Day. Invoke “joie de vivre” and impress the love of your life with your creativity and willingness to brave the elements.

Dinner at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar

Casanovas with an affinity for classic romance should consider taking their sweetheart to an enchanting Valentine’s Day dinner. Many local hot spots are offering special deals and decorum, but we at The Voice would like to recommend visiting Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar.

Fleming’s offers exquisite dining options for those with a discerning palette. The enchanting atmosphere married with the lavish decor make for a decidedly upscale experience. From February 12th to the 14th, Fleming’s is also offering an exclusive Valentine’s day menu. Highlights from it include filet mignon, lobster, New York strip, and other meals designated “for two.” Feel free to top the dinner off with a sumptuous Red Velvet dessert.

Staying the Night at Revere Hotel

Still enchanted by the idea of staying inside and hiding from the inclement weather? Do so, with style, by checking in and keeping cozy at Boston Common’s Revere Hotel.

For the month of February, the Revere Hotel is hosting a number of Valentine’s Day themed packages. The coyly-named “Revere Your Sweetheart” package invites you and your loved one to stay in a Premier guest room, enjoy their “VIP Welcome Surprise,” and enjoy a late check-out the next day. Have dinner delivered to your door to enjoy night-long comfort.

The “Spread the Love” package takes the previous package up a notch by relocating to a deluxe guest room with a private balcony view of the city.

The luxurious accommodations found at the Revere include a champagne toast at check-in, spa access, premium appliances, and much more.

Get Fit with Barry’s Bootcamp

The only way to survive this year’s wintery onslaught is to get hot. From now until the end of Valentine’s Day, Barry’s Bootcamp encourages couples to get hot—and sweaty—with their Cupid Challenge workout competition.

If you and your partner find athleticism to be an aphrodisiac, enroll in Barry’s Bootcamp’s innumerable classes and compete in a survival game for the fittest. The couple who attends the most classes wins a dinner date night at the incredible Sportello restaurant. This is a great way to heat up your love life and heart rate at the same time.
