Be Your Own Valentine, London Edition

2 minutes to read

Okay girls and boys, Valentine's Day is just around the corner! For some of us it means a romantic evening with our significant other whether you go out or choose to stay in, however for some of us who does not have a significant other it is no different than any other day. My suggestion is; we need to put a stop to it! Just because we are single we shouldn't skip any celebrations, I mean there is nothing wrong with having a date night with yourself or your mates. Like I said before you can always be your own valentine! Do not worry, I will not be boring and talk about the perks of being single on this day. I have made some research and came up with couple ideas to join the celebration here in London and who knows maybe you will find your other half in one of these parties:)

1) Bumble's Anti-Valentine's Day Party

Many of us have used some sort of a dating app in our life time and one of these apps is Bumble which is the host of the Anti Valentine's Day Party in Holborn. Unfortunately, couples are not allowed in to this party but oh well, they will have plenty other places to go:) This party with all night UV Ping Pong, face painters and live performances will be held in the Bounce bar and the tickets are 5 pounds!

2) F**k Tinder London!

This is another February 14th event, held by the Prince of Wales bar in Brixton. Unlike the Bumble party, this event is for those who wants to ditch all the dating apps and have a night filled with comedy. Throughout the night you can enjoy hilarious acts with your mates and maybe meet someone new, who knows!

3) Hip Hop Brunch LDN

This activity is not exactly on the Valentine's Day but 14th of February is a Tuesday anyway, so if you want to carry the celebrations to the weekend or celebrate one weekend early, get ready for brunch!! This is definitely not a regular brunch, this is a bottomless brunch in a secret location with as much as dancing you want to. Perfect for couples and singles! The tickets are a bit expensive, 40 Pounds, but it includes 3-course meal and bottomless cocktails.

These were my top 3 picks, I will be listing more activities down below.

I made the suggestion to celebrate the date but if you also choose to stay at home with box of chocolates and some wine, I have a little video for you! Enjoy!!
