7 Friend Date Ideas For You And Your Beirut Buddies This Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate your loved ones – whether they be your significant other, your family, or your friends. So, if you find yourself single this V day, don’t let it get you down. Go on an adventure with your friends or family to keep the love alive. Here are some fun ideas for you and your friends to enjoy this Valentine’s day that are sure to help you feel the love in all of its underrated forms.

Sing your hearts out to ‘I Will Survive’ at Karaoke

Try one of these karaoke spots around the city to get your dose of singing therapy. Songs we suggest you sing: I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor, At Least I’ve Got My Friends by Aura Dione, or Gives You Hell by the All American Rejects in case you’re still feeling bitter over the one that got away before you could upload an “I’m wearing the smile you gave me” Instagram post on Valentine’s Day.

Drink and paint

Sip on a glass of wine colder than your exes heart and paint the night away at Joon on the Moon.

Go snowshoeing

Run away from your thoughts this V Day by literally climbing up a mountain in the snow. This is sure to take your mind off of anything other than surviving. Try HighKings or We Are Hikers to find out when the next snow adventures will take place.

Visit an animal shelter

Make a pupper happy and soothe your soul at the same time. Share the love with your friends and some fluffy friends at BETA’s animal shelter in Monte Verde. They’re open every day of the week except for Fridays, from 10 AM to 2 PM. You’ll need to fill in a volunteer form on their website before visiting.

Go pub-hopping

If you’d rather not be productive on this fateful day, it’s ok, we understand. Just get drunk. Here are a few of our favorite places where you can do so this winter in Beirut.

Go to Colonel Brewery for a beer-filled day outdoors

For a breezy, boozy, barbeque-filled getaway, there’s no place we’d rather be than at Colonel’s outdoor escape.

Escape the room(s)

Did you know that there are three escape room spots in Lebanon? Try one of them this Valentine ’s Day to help you and your friends escape your otherwise depressing thoughts of being single this year.
