Over the years, we've covered many different ways to spend Valentine's Day. From our hospitality experts sharing their favourite desserts to a one-stop-shop Valentine's day guide featuring conversation tips from our aviation team. This year, we're dedicating our recommendations to celebrating friendships, so here's one just for you (and your best mates).
Melbourne Women in Film Festival | Melbourne
Available now until Monday 14 February 2022

To get a taste of their top watch list, head over to their opening night on Thursday 10 February 2022 or if you're interested in the classic event planner meets wedding photographer trope, Rhapsody of Love will do the trick!

Lobster & Co Pop-up | Sydney
Available now until Friday 18 February 2022
What could be more Sydney than a dedicated lobster pop up? Before we hit autumn in March, enjoy these last few weeks of warm weather with a decadent lobster roll (with a side of truffle fries of course!) and a glass of champagne (optional).
Euphoric at United | Sydney
Available now until Wednesday 2 March 2022
It might be an homage to the cult classic Mean Girls or it could be just a good excuse but every Wednesday at United, Barangaroo's rooftop is turning pink for Euphoric. The new weekly sessions feature live music, exclusive menus and fresh peachy cocktails.
Top tip: turn your evening up a notch and head over during golden hour. You're welcome!
