Sleepwalked through the whole valentine brouhaha this week, only to wake up on the day itself in a panic? Been there, done that. To save you the panic attack, here is our last minute guide to save the day and earn yourself some brownie points with your Valentine.
La Folie Patisserie
This new French patisserie in Kala Ghoda is cozy with its four tables and delectable array of desserts.

Vinoteca by Sula
Wine and tapas—how can you go wrong? Vinoteca by Sula has a special Valentine’s Day menu that includes pintxos, sides, tapas and desserts. And since this is essentially a wine bar, the meal is accompanied by two glasses of wine or cocktails. Take the celebrations home with a complimentary mini cake—sweet endings!

Want to dance with your love? Then Li Bai the Social Bar and Lounge is the place to be. A live performance by The Other People with Zarir Warden belting out his take on popular songs will have you grooving in no time. The bar will also serve specially concocted his and her cocktails.

Olive Bar and Kitchen
