EVENT ENDED: This article is for a past event.
Valentine’s Day is fast approaching and Elsternwick Village has everything you need to up your romance game and show that special someone how much you care.
The shopping precinct has you covered with its assortment of restaurants, shops and lifestyle options to make this February 14 a day to remember.
Here are five ways to mark this Valentine’s Day in Elsternwick Village.
1. Dinner date
Delicious food and good company always go down well, so why not celebrate the day of love with a dinner for two.
There is something to suit everyone’s tastes in Elsternwick Village, whether it’s fine dining, casual street food or a take away to be enjoyed in a more private setting.
Check out the shopping precinct’s range of restaurants and eateries here.
2. Catch a film
A sure-fire way to impress your valentine this year is to grab some popcorn and catch the latest blockbuster in a historic movie theatre, namely Elsternwick’s Classic Cinema.
From Hollywood movies to the best in foreign films, the theatre offers a cinematic range that everyone can enjoy.
The vintage style of this 130-year-old movie house is also a delight, as one of only a handful of early cinemas still operating in Victoria.
3. The perfect gift
A gift can often say it all and show how you truly feel on Valentine’s Day.
If flowers are in mind, then head to boutique nursery Crabtree & Weeks for their range of beautifully potted flowers and plants.
4. Treat yourself
To make sure you look your best on Valentine’s Day, why not get a trim beforehand at one of Elsternwick Village’s hair salons and barbers.
While the ladies may want to get a blow wave before the big day, fellas may want to consider a clean shave and even an eyebrow wax to sharpen up those bushy brows.
For something different, a couple’s massage or spa day is also a fun option.
5. Grab a drink
If you want to keep it a little simpler this Valentine’s Day, rekindle that fire over a fancy cocktail or a new brew.
Elsternwick Village is home to some fabulous bars and nightlife venues, whether you want live entertainment or somewhere quieter and more intimate.
