So you’re looking for things to do on Valentine’s Day in Miami? Perhaps you’ve already Netflixed and ordered way too much of the best pizza in Miami. Maybe your wallet can’t exactly handle the best steakhouses in Miami right now. And we’re willing to bet you’ve eaten your way through the best desserts in Miami, too. Well, there’s good news: you have options. We’ve compiled a list of Miami Valentine’s Day options that should give you some choices to work with—no matter your budget (or lack thereof). On February 14, you can see a movie on the sand of South Beach, sing your heart out at karaoke or watch drag queens wrestle in milk. Seriously.

Valentine’s Day Drag Queen Champagne and Milk Wrestling

Looking for something a bit out of the box for Valentine’s Day? Sweet Liberty has the answer to those tired of your average candlelit dinner/red wine combo. The Miami Beach cocktail bar is instead throwing a drag queen champagne and milk wrestling party. Who said romance is dead? Expect the bar to transform into a wrestling ring complete with an inflatable pool and 20 gallons of milk and champagne. The free party is perfect for anyone looking to grunt out a bit of romantic frustration and possibly get a little messy in the process.

Tainted Love ’80s Heartbreak Party

This one is for those cold hearts who curse the flowers and candy and romance of February 14. The Anderson’s Tainted Love ’80s Heartbreak Party is our anti-Valentine’s Day party pick. Grab the special $7 “Shot Through the Hart” cocktail and dance those feelings out ’80s-style.

Find Love in Little Havana

Ball & Chain is catering to the fairer sex this V-Day. Ladies drink free at the Little Havana mainstay from 8pm to 10pm. The bar is making some special Valentine’s Day cocktails too, which is good because you’ll need all the liquid help you can get when you belt out those ballads during the night’s karaoke. Just go with something by Rihanna. You’ll be fine.

Movie Under the Stars: Valentine’s Day Edition

The Atton’s rooftop pool is romantic on a regular day, with its 360-degree views of Biscayne Bay and sapphire blue pool calling your name. But when you throw a huge blow-up screen in the middle of that pool, include a free glass of prosecco or wine and throw on the Sandler/Barrymore rom-com 50 First Dates—well, you’ve got yourself a dangerously romantic evening under the stars. A special menu of tapas, cheese and charcuterie is available as well.

Karaoke and Pizza

Brickell’s Blackbird Ordinary recently launched a brand new karaoke night and if you still haven’t managed to check it out, Valentine’s Day is your lucky night. In addition to the bar’s karaoke shenanigans, local artist Lone Wolf is dishing out heart-shaped pizzas, which will probably be more satisfying than any date ever.

Movies in the Sand

Curl up with a good movie on the beach at the Edition’s Valentine’s Day version of its Movies in the Sand series. The highly appropriate Dirty Dancing will be on the big screen so even if you happen to be date-less, you can still close your eyes and pretend like Patrick Swayze is talking to you.

Moonlight and Music Valentine’s Day Concert

The Deering Estate invites two Miami musicians to its sprawling grounds for a special Valentine’s Day concert. Alejandro Elizondo and Yoli Mayor, who you might remember from the most recent season of America's Got Talent, provide a soundtrack on the lawn. Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, picnic baskets and blankets to get as cozy as humanly possible.

Sensatia Valentine’s Day Show

The Faena Theater’s Sensatia show is a wonderful combination of cabaret, acrobatics, musical numbers and food. The Valentin’s Day edition should be especially stunning and dreamy. There are two shows, one at 8pm and the other at 10pm.
