Top Romantic Destinations in Miami

Top Romantic Destinations in Miami

That’s right, Valentine’s Day is here yet again. Fellas be prepared to shell out the cash, and ladies be ready to schmooze your men today. One of the most important characteristics about your dates revolve around one thing: location, location, location. With the ocean as its backyard and some of the finest restaurants in the nation, Miami is a prime city for romantic hot spots. Clubplanet has compiled a short list of Miami’s most romantic places for your Valentine’s Day date, and here's what we've come up with:

Top Romantic Destination in Miami: Asia de Cuba at Mondrian South Beach
With five locations within the US and abroad, Asia de Cuba is a huge name in the restaurant business. As you can probably guess from the name, the restaurant serves a fusion of Asian and Latin American cuisine – but it’s not a ham croquette drenched in soy sauce. The menu has options for every palette, from seafood, like tuna tartare with Spanish olives, coconut, and soy vinaigrette, to a meat-lovers paradise, with the palomilla of marinated lamb. For Valentine’s Day, the restaurant has cooked up a special menu of some of the restaurant’s best sellers, and will have additional wine pairings on hand. It comes at a rather steep price – $75 a person – but don’t fret, they will also have the regular menu available, and with the Asia de Cuba’s reputation, you definitely won’t be let down.

Top Romantic Destination in Miami: Tantra
To those outside of Miami, the word "tantra" refers to the deeply spiritual practice in some Eastern religions, and the rituals that go along with it, such as yoga and, let’s not be coy here, sex. Lucky for those of us in Miami, it also refers to a restaurant and lounge. At Tantra they incorporate all of the traditional connotations of tantra into their ambience and food. The Asian-inspired menu has dishes such as “The French Kiss” and “The Tantra Love Apple,” keeping in tune with the theme of the lounge. The restaurant’s website defines tantra as “in tantric, as in aphrodisiac…sensual, exotic, opulent, sexy, primal.” What more would you couples want this Valentine’s Day?

Top Romantic Destination in Miami: Karu & Y
Located in Downtown Miami, not only does the Y Lounge have a great atmosphere and music, but it also has excellent, world-class food, which draws a high-class crowd. Chef Arturo Paz combines contemporary American food and spices it up with some Latin flare. One thing about that is for sure, all of you Miami natives can agree – traditional American mixed in with Latin influences is never a bad thing. This Valentine’s Day, after dining on any item from the regular menu, move over to the Y Lounge to celebrate the night in one of Miami’s hottest clubs.

Top Romantic Destination in Miami: Baleen Restaurant
This is definitely the most pricey dinner on the list, but without a doubt, it is the most romantic. Located in Grove Isles, in the heart of Coconut Grove, Baleen is an award-winning restaurant. The elegant, yet innovative décor (hint: monkeys play a huge role in the feel of the restaurant) and beautiful location, with views of Biscayne Bay and outdoor seating available, Baleen provides for an intimate, upscale Valentine’s Day. At $195 per person, a 7-course menu of the restaurant’s traditional Mediterranean seafood will be served, accompanied by a bottle of champagne. While you’re there, you might as well splurge and make the night into a weekend adventure– it is located inside of Grove Isles Hotel and Spa, with rooms starting at about $300 a night.

Top Romantic Destination in Miami: BED
Yes, it’s exactly what you’re thinking. Located on South Beach, BED is a lounge that resembles your bedroom, if your room had sick ambient lighting, hip-hop pumping all night, videos projected on the walls, and delicious cocktails and food. BED, which really stands for "Beverage, Entertainment and Dining," serves tapas-style South American cuisine. On Valentine’s Day the lounge will provide you with a five-course meal, along with a bottle of champagne. Don’t stress about feeling comfortable to be romantic with your valentine in a sea of club-goers – with the pull of a drape, you will be separated from the crowd.

Top Romantic Destination in Miami: Cinebistro
Ah, dinner and a movie dates – we’ve all been on them. If you’re like me, you also know that the awkward conversation and the stress of arriving to the movie theater on time can make the date uncomfortable, and, let’s face it, ruin it. Finally, someone decided to cut out all of the risks, and serve dinner while playing a movie, while taking it to the next level. Cinebistro, located in Dolphin Mall, is a unique movie-viewing experience in the best way imaginable. Their Latin Ameircan cuisine caters to the finest of tastes, while the newest release is being screened in the roomy theater. This Valentine’s Day, Cinebistro is serving a special menu for all of you lovebirds so give your stomach, and your eyes, a feast.
