  • A classic romantic meal

Of course, there is a huge range of top-class restaurants to choose from in Chicago, but for an extra special treat why not take your Valentine to dine with a view?

  • Glide over ice

What could be more romantic than whisking your date to a spectacular ice rink set atop the swanky Peninsula Hotel’s rooftop? Located 4 stories above Michigan Avenue and next to the hotel’s Shanghai Terrace, you will be surrounded by pine trees, twinkling lights, and beautiful views of Chicago’s spectacular skyscrapers so you can glide over the ice whilst taking in the incredible setting, then take a break from the cold by snuggling up in the cozy lounge for hot drinks and snacks.

  • Make your own

Want to impress your date with a romantic dinner but your cooking skills leave a little to be desired? Take a couple’s cooking class at The Chopping Block where you can create a range of delicious dishes with the help of expert chefs. Specials include a Hands-On Valentine’s Feast of Parisian Pleasures, Sensual Food and Wine Pairings, and special winter-warmer recipes for Couple’s Cooking classes. A whole range of other classes are also available so there’ll be something that’s sure to impress your Valentine, whatever their tastes.
