Best Valentine’s Day party NYC has to offer
Find a match IRL at this Valentine's Day event hosted by ladies-first dating app Bumble. Show off your skils in the ping pong competition, sip complimentary custom cocktails, play crowd games and get temporary tattoos from TATTLY, all while flirting with three-dimensional cuties. Ping pong winners get free drinks for the night, so you'll want to bring your A game in more ways than one.
Prepare to feel horn aplenty at this carnal Dionysian feast. Eat food off nude models, witness Surrealist art installations, and get intimate with curious strangers in dungeons, hot-wax play areas and even a “cuddle puddle lounge.” A harem of uninhibited performers will help you fulfill all of your Valentine’s Day sings beyond just eating a box of chocolates.
Immersive theater giants Dances of Vice team up with Company XIV for their Venetian Valentine Masked Ball, a decadent re-creation of a Venetian masquerade complete with opera singers, gender-fluid burlesque dancers, circus performers and more carnivalesque goodies. Doll yourself up to wow (there’s a strict dress code of black-tie or fantasy attire), don your mask, and look for that special someone in New York's skylit Capitale.
While couples are sitting in crowded restaurants eating expensive prix fixe dinners, all you free birds can hit this Single Awareness Day powwow to cut loose on the dance floor, partake of complimentary booze, sing your heart out in karaoke and trounce fellow singles at beer pong. Who needs everlasting love when you've got an open bar?
"What's love got to do with it?" You decide! Whether you have a broken heart, are single and feeling randy, or just really like the colors red and pink, go to House of Yes to celebrate Cupid's holiday amongst friends and potential lovers. Enjoy mesmerizing dance performances, killer tunes, kissing booths, love tarot readers, matchmaking services and more.
Some of the greatest love stories of all time were created by Disney, so why not celebrate “true love’s kiss” and all that with New York’s very own Disney rock cover band The Little Mermen? This all-night rager and sing-along will have you crooning the hits from your favorite childhood films such as Aladdin, Pocahontas and The Little Mermaid. And if the date goes well, you might be lucky enough to “Kiss the Girl” (or guy!) by the end of the night.
Two households, both alike in dignity, come to tear the roof off at House of Yes for a bananas immersive viewing of Baz Luhrmann’s 1996 pop spectacle, starring the angelic youths Claire Danes and Leonardo DiCaprio. Witness live ballet and aerial performances synced to the film, and get down at an after-party inspired by the legendary soundtrack.
Robert Smith sang about being in love on a Friday with The Cure, but he also crooned about being "Not In Love" with Crystal Castles. Regardless of your stance, on Friday 9, an anti-Valentine's Day party is going down. So leave your heart and cupid paraphernalia at home, capeesh?
