When you think about Valentine’s Day, you probably picture a candle lit dinner, either in the privacy of your own home or in a quiet corner of a romantic restaurant.
But why stick to tradition? If you’re in the mood for an alternative Valentine’s Day, we think taking your other half out for brunch is a great idea.
Luckily for you, there are plenty of themed brunches going on in Bahrain this year – and we’ve rounded up four for you to try.
Read on for our picks.
Nothing says “I love you” like steak (right?), and Black Angus’ buffet brunch will offer that in spades as well as much, much more. DJ Epic, DJ Essie and DJ Slydz will be on the decks, playing plenty of romantic tunes, and you won’t even have to worry about buying flowers – the first 50 ladies will get a free rose.
BHD20 (pre-sale, house beverages), BHD25 (on the door, house beverages). Fri Feb 14 noon-4pm. Black Angus, Coral Bay, Manama (6675 7225).
The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain’s gorgeous white and blue restaurant La Med is putting on a Valentine’s Day themed brunch this month. If you nab a spot on the terrace, prepare to be wooed by the garden views as you enjoy international buffet foods alongside live cooking stations.
BHD30 (soft drinks), BHD38 (house beverages). Fri Feb 14 12.30pm-3.30pm. La Med, The Ritz-Carlton Bahrain, Seef (1758 6499).
Pubs aren’t exactly the most romantic of spots, but if you’re looking for a casual option for a date, McGettigan’s is your best bet. You can expect all the classic pub grub options plus a few Valentine’s Day themed extras, and resident band Roadhits will be there serenading you.
BHD29 (house beverages). Fri Feb 14 noon-4pm. McGettigan’s, Adliya (1700 0415).
This Valentine’s Day Sofitel Bahrain is going all out, with plenty of sweet Valentine’s Day treats and love anthems performed by the resident Cuban band. Plus, couples who wear matching shirts will get BHD10 off the price of brunch, and you’ll be able to send the little ones off to the kids’ corner while you enjoy the romantic brunch.
BHD35 (soft drinks), BHD40 (house beverages), BHD70 (couples wearing matching shirts, house beverages). Fri Feb 14 12.30pm-4pm. Sofitel Bahrain Zallaq Thalassa Sea & Spa (3888 5789).
