Copper Common

111 E 300 S

Salt Lake City, UT 84111

Recommended drink: “Maid of Orleans”, dry gin, ginger, benedictine, grapefruit, bitters, prosecco. 

This cool restaurant is part of the restaurant trifecta that is Copper Common, Copper Onion, and Copper Kitchen. All of these options are delicious and great options for a fancy and satisfying meal. Pro tip: they all offer a great arugula salad I couldn’t recommend enough! But Copper Common is a local favorite for stopping for a drink. It’s hip and classy, perfect for an extra special night with your significant lover, or your friends! 

It’s also adjacent to The Broadway movie theater, one of our favorite places in Salt Lake City. Catching a movie would be a great way to finish the night! 


Caffe Molise

55 W 100th S

Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Recommended dish: “Pappardelle al Sugo”, House-made fresh pappardelle tossed with a savory, slow-cooked sauce of pork and beef with tomatoes, topped with Asiago.

Making reservation to a nice restaurant is a great way to show someone you care. We love Caffe Molise for it’s delicious menu and wine bar, the romantic environment, and overall charm. One huge bonus of their menu, is the option to make any dish vegetarian or gluten free. We love a place that accommodates everyone's dietary needs! Every visit I’ve had has been full of wonderful service and delicious food. On Fridays they even have live jazz performances, so bookmark it as a permanent date spot in your book. 

If you can’t make it for Valentines Day, make sure to check it out in the spring or summer time. The patio is to die for!


Gourmandise - The Bakery

250 S 300 E

Salt Lake City, UT 84111

Recommended Pastry: “Marzipan Slice”, Yellow cake with raspberry mousse. Topped with a layer of marzipan.

You have to get dessert on Valentine's Day, no questions asked. Make a trip out of it by visiting Gourmandise, a darling cafe that’s open until 10pm. Gives you plenty of time to enjoy your dinner and drink! You probably thought you couldn’t get fresh pastries at night, but you totally can! The atmosphere at Gourmandise is incredible, and the menu is too. It’s a great option for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner. So don’t forget about this place. 


Color Me Mine

1414 Foothill Drive, Ste H

Salt Lake City, UT 84108

You don’t have to be artistically inclined to enjoy a good painting session at Color Me Mine. It’s a great place to go because you get to create something fun and new while spending quality time with your loved ones. Whether you’re celebrating Valentine’s Day girl’s night style, or a romantic night with your significant other. You don’t have to take yourself seriously, and you’re guaranteed to have a ball. 

Gallivan Ice Skating 

Skate With Your Sweetie Night

239 S Main St

Salt Lake City, UT 84111

Ice Skating isn’t exclusive to December, and it’s the perfect activity for a special night. The Gallivan Center is a classic activity that everyone loves. If you want to do it on Valentine’s Day, but don’t want to brave the crowds, make sure to come to the Gallivan Centers “Skate With Your Sweetie” night!
