Singles Valentine's Day Activities Dubai

Valentine’s Day: cringe. Romance: cringe. Commercialising basic human attraction: cringe. If you’re looking to affirm these universal truths (rather than wallowing in bed watching Netflix and questioning everything) then Dubai has plenty to offer for all you singletons out there. Don’t settle for a ‘quiet night in’, or go crawling back to texting people you know you shouldn't; check out our list of some of the best Valentines events coming up in the city…

‘Me, Myself And I’ Package - Rove Hotels

February 10th - 19th

Rove’s ‘Me, Myself And I’ package invites people to take a little solo-staycation, so treat yourself to those crisp sheets on that king-size bed all to yourself. Not to mention, you'll also get a box of chocolates, breakfast in bed for one, a cute little pet rock, and even a ‘Rove friend’ pillow. The cherry on top, or the chocolate on the pillow so to speak, is that all of this is available at a discount of 50%. It’s like splitting the bill with someone, but you wont wake up shivering at 3 AM to find that the bed sheets have been stolen by your companion.

Anti-Valentine’s Quiz Night With Jono & Rich - Horse & Hound, Al Habtoor Polo Resort

8 PM, Thursday February 15th

Hilarious radio DJs and compering duo Jono & Rich are hosting what they’ve called an Anti-Valentine's Quiz Night at Al Habtoor’s class British-style gastropub Horse & Hound. With a mouthwatering menu of food and drinks on offer (seriously, I had to stop gawping at it for fear of drooling on the keyboard), and a view over the stunning polo field, prepare your mind for brain-teasers and quiz questions and celebrate your independence.

Singles Party - Ikigai, Dubai Marina

7 PM - 11 PM, February 14th

The incredibly elegant Japanese restaurant and bar Ikigai, located adjacent to Dubai Marina Yacht Club, is hosting their very own singles party. If you’re looking for dinner and drinks for one dripping in class, or a ladies night that’ll go down in the books, Ikigai might just be the place you’re looking for. With a special Valentine’s menu to keep up with even the most advanced palates, all five courses are sure to impress as you soak in the freedom of the single life.

Anti-Valentine’s Day - Harvester’s

9 PM - 12 PM, February 13th &14th

Downtown Dubai’s classic English pub Havester’s is offering up to three hours of unlimited house drinks this Valentines. For just AED 169, settle into one of the cosy booths, or stand at the traditional wooden bar and enjoy an evening of live entertainment and music. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a challenge, then Harvester’s also has the perfect thing for people who are more into Man V Food than a romantic meal for two; a 1kg burger challenge. Take on the metre-long sandwich on your own, or with a set of trusted friends. Do not go gentle into that delicious burger.

Third Wheeling Three for Two - Rove Hotel

February 10th - 19th

Another offer at the hotel, this time for those who prefer to experience the couple dynamic from the outside; calling all third wheels! The hotel is inviting all the lovebirds - and their independent, free-spirited single plus ones - to enjoy a specially curated dining offer for three. Available at any of The Daily restaurants, order any two mains from the Valentine’s menu and you’ll get the third one with no charge. No need to worry about splitting the bill in this case; third wheels dine free.

Anti-Valentine’s in The Tent - Bla Bla Dubai

8 PM - Late, February 14th

Bla Bla Dubai is putting on an epic Anti-Valentine’s Day Party in The Tent, right in the heart of Jumeirah Beach Residence. They even have their own take on Tinder, in a game that gives you the chance to win a dinner for two - to be used at a later date no doubt. Live music by The Tasty Biscuits and three free beverages for ladies sounds like a seriously good way to validate your anti-Valentine’s vendetta.

Anti-Valentine's - Babiole

7 PM - 12 PM, February 12th

Way up on the 44th floor of the Al Habtoor Hilton, Babiole is offering a wholesome, cheerful evening of revelry and  camaraderie, perhaps with just a hint of mischief. Swap unreliable and disappointing dates for the warm company of good friends and delectable dishes, and celebrate your friendships with a three-course dinner and free-flowing drinks for AED 265 per head.

Single Ladies Night - Lucky Voice

5pm - 12pm, February 14th

Enough with the melancholic acoustic songs of love lost or unrequited; get yourself to Lucky Voice to belt out some breakup bangers with your chums, and celebrate your love for yourselves and each other. Unite the gal pals and warm up those vocal chords. No need to reserve the singing for the private concert in the car every day, grab the karaoke mic and sing it loud. With four complimentary drinks for ladies, 25% off food, and a free hour in a private karaoke pod, there’s no excuse not to bring your all this Valentine’s day; be the smiling singing woman that childhood-you always looked up to.
