Where to Celebrate Valentine's Day in Denver

Valentine’s Day is getting close, so if you haven’t made plans yet, it's time to get started. We can help. Check out five places where Denver sweethearts can find romance by way of food and drink.

Peaks Lounge: Take your love to new heights at this lounge located on the 27th floor of the Hyatt Regency. With spectacular views of both the city and mountains, this romantic spot is perfect for nightcaps or clandestine get-togethers. Peaks Lounge has a variety of unique cocktails and serves 40 wines by the glass. On the food side, you’ll find small plates such as beef tenderloin sliders and tempting desserts like cheesecakes and tarts (650 15th St.; 303-486-4444).

Simms Steakhouse: For unparalleled vistas of the Denver skyline, this upscale eatery in Golden can’t be beat. Start with cocktails in the Sixth Avenue Lounge, then dine on Angus beef or fresh seafood. The expansive windows allow for romantic views of the Queen City at every table (11911 W. 6th Ave., Golden; 303-237-0465).

Mynt Mojito Lounge: Bring sexy back to V-Day at this little slice of South Beach in Larimer Square. Choose from 20-plus mojitos by the glass or pitcher and a dozen other specialty cocktails, paired with a Latin-inspired small plates. Fridays and Saturday evenings feature a live DJ, so whether you and your loved one dance the night away or disappear into one of the high-backed booths, the Mynt will fit your mood (1424 Market St.; 303-825-6968).

The Village Cork: This South Pearl Street wine bar has been around since 2001 and is well known as a place where lovebirds can gaze at each other while sipping vino and nibbling cheese. Full dinner service launched  in 2010, so now this tiny spot — it holds no more than 70 people — serves dishes with locally-sourced organic ingredients, which means no two dates will be the exactly the same. Match your meal with a wide variety of wines by the glass and bottle, most from small vintners around the world (1300 S. Pearl St.; 303-282-8399).

Carmine’s on Penn: If you plan to share Valentine’s Day with a group, this cozy neighborhood restaurant provides family-style dining in an intimate setting. Located in a residential area of Wash Park, Carmine’s has been serving heaping portions of Italian food and wine since 1994. You won’t find printed menus, just a chalkboard and friendly wait staff to guide you, after you start your evening imbibing from the full-service bar. Carmine’s is a great fit for anything from first dates to 50th anniversaries and everything in between (92 S. Pennsylvania Ave.; 303-777-6443).
