How to celebrate Valentine’s Day 2018 in Elsternwick Village
EVENT ENDED: This article is for a past event.
The day of love is just around the corner and there are plenty of ways to mark the romantic occasion in Elsternwick Village.
From finding the perfect gift to going on a date, the precinct offers a range of shops, restaurants and entertainment venues to make Valentine’s Day (February 14) memorable.
Here’s how you can celebrate Valentine’s Day in Elsternwick Village:
See a classic flick
There’s nothing quite like venturing into an historic movie house to enjoy the latest blockbuster or arthouse flick, and Elsternwick’s Classic Cinema offers just that.
The cinema was built in 1889 and is historically important to the local area, being one of only a handful of early cinemas still operating in Victoria.
Treat your loved one to an evening at the movies – catch the latest drama, action or independent film, or go for a romance to get into true Valentine’s Day spirit.
Dinner for two
A popular choice for a Valentine’s Day outing is to enjoy a dinner date with your other half.
Whether you’re after fine dining, casual street food or even take away that can be enjoyed at your favourite local park or beach, Elsternwick Village has a range of restaurants and eateries to choose from.
Catch up for a drink
There’s nothing quite like meeting a loved one for a quiet drink or two to mark a special occasion.
Elsternwick Village offers a great variety of places to enjoy a fancy cocktail or casual beer – choose from in-house bars at restaurants, dedicated venues with live music, and several locations to enjoy a drink after hours.
Want to look your best for your Valentine? Book yourself into a hair salon in Elsternwick Village to add the finishing touch to your appearance.
For the ladies, perhaps a blow wave at a local hair salon before meeting your date could do the trick. For the lads, a beard trim or shave at a traditional-style barber might be in order.
Whatever your needs, be sure to choose from our superb selection of hairdressers, salons and barbers.
Say it with flowers
To really impress, go for flowers. But be sure to get in early to avoid missing out.
Head to Simeon’s Florist for a bunch of this season’s best blooms, wrapped especially for a romantic occasion. The flower shop offers delivery too, so phone ahead of time to place your order. Alternatively, Crabtree & Weeks offers beautiful potted plants which could make for a lovely gift.
Something small to show you care is a great way to mark Valentine’s Day with your loved one.
