Feb 11, 2013 —  It’s time to change it up this Valentine’s Day. Put down your tub of ice cream, dry the tears from your eyes, and turn off Casablanca. Sure, the movie is a classic, but it’s time to stop relying on Rick Blaine and Ilsa Lund to keep you company on what’s supposed to be the most romantic day of the year.

We’ve got nothing against amazing fictional characters – or Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman – but we do take it personally when you don’t seize the opportunity to grab your best guy or gal and head to one of the many amorous and fun alcoves in America’s biggest cities.

No matter whether you’re on a budget or on a first date, we’ve got you covered. Wine bars in Boston and Washington, DC offer guests a quiet environment to sip on savory nectar and get to know one another while they eat some delicious grub.

Laid-back bars and gastropubs in Los Angeles and New York, meanwhile, provide couples in the midst of  a longer relationship a chill backdrop to reminisce about their first Valentine’s Day and an opportunity to recreate it after a few fresh draft beers.

Spice it up this year. This could be the start of a beautiful friendship between you and a local romantic bar, lounge, or restaurant.
