Cozy restaurants, intimate nightclubs, and plenty of live music help make New Orleans a fantastic city in which to spend Valentine’s Day. Consider a last minute romantic getaway in a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast, and treat your sweetie to a Valentine’s Day s/he’ll never forget.
There are dozens of supremely romantic restaurants in New Orleans, many of which are housed in lovingly restored old buildings. Dine in a 150 year old Creole cottage in the French Quarter, at Bayona. Share martinis at the French Quarter’s Bombay Club, where Nouveau Creole cuisine is served with class. Sip wine or cocktails while savoring small plates at Bouligny Tavern, a mid-century modern locale in the Uptown / Garden District
After dinner, walk through the French Quarter until you hear music that appeals to you drifting out of a bar. Cuddle together while listening to jazz or dance until the wee hours of the morning to a more lively beat. Dixieland, Cajun, Rock n Roll, the Blues; whatever you like, you’re sure to find it playing at some venue in New Orleans.
Start your evening with a walk, hand-in-hand, through the French Quarter, or a scenic ride through the city in a horse drawn carriage. Stroll through the Sculpture Garden in City Park; share a kiss by the fountain at Audubon Park.
Several New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts offer last-minute specials or romantic getaway packages: add a bottle of wine or chocolates to a special occasion such as an anniversary or Valentine’s Day romantic retreat, and make travel more affordable. You’re spouse, lover, or special friend will be delighted with a trip to a romantic Bed and Breakfast New Orleans.
