Flying Solo: Valentine’s Day for Singles in NYC

February 14, 2020 | 4 min Read

Being single in New York on Valentine’s Day is an opportunity to spend time with the coolest person you know— yourself! Forget about the inflated, ridiculous holiday pressures of Valentine’s Day. Instead of desperately scrolling your contacts for a possible date, take yourself out for a night on the town. Who could be more fun, more charming or more brilliant than YOU?

We’ve got a few suggestions for a fabulous, solo Valentine’s Day in New York City.

“It’s Friday, I’m (Not) in Love”

If you’re a fan of The Cure or just not in the mood for a typical Valentine’s Day, scoot down to the Littlefield for the 5th annual “It’s Friday, I’m (Not) in Love” party put on by the skint. Dance yourself silly with songs of heartbreak, longing, and redemption from the ‘80s through present day with DJ Ceremony. There will be a dark photo booth and specialty drinks available at the bar. N.B. The event has a dress code of strictly black attire, so leave the pinks and reds at home for this Valentine’s party.

Get yourself to Queens for “Love in Queens” a two-hour salsa and bachata class— both beginners and experienced dancers are welcome here. And best of all, you don’t need to come with a partner. The venue will provide ice-breaker activities to get everyone acquainted and before you know it, you’ll be learning some new steps and making new friends on the dance floor. The evening also promises dessert and wine to sweeten the deal. See the website for tickets.

Roses Only

Why not send yourself a dozen roses this Valentine’s Day? You deserve a little luxury, and nothing says self-appreciation like long stem roses. Roses Only is a stand out for their modern detailed perfectionism, beautiful box packaging, and of course, their hand-picked, long stem roses. Choose from colors such as classic red or the more understated mauve, and order as little as a single rose or as many as 100; and while you’re at it, you can always add a box of Godiva chocolates to the order. Known as being purveyors of the ‘world’s finest roses’ Roses Only delivers express in New York and L.A.

Dirt Candy

Each year around Valentine’s Day, the vegetarian restaurant Dirt Candy hosts a Solo Diner’s Week. This year the restaurant is offering a special seven-course menu for one. You have to love a restaurant that goes out of its way to make the single gal or guy feel welcome. The website says it all: “We want to celebrate the fact that you don’t need another person to make you complete. You are totally awesome all by yourself!” For reservations visit the website or call.
