1. Get competitive by planning a Valentine’s bake-off
Do you have a sweet tooth? Check out this Valentine’s party idea for adults – host a Valentine’s bake-off where you can put your culinary skills to the test. Challenge your guests to put their own spins on a classic dessert, like brownies, or have everyone bake the same thing and compare their creations.
You might want to bring some extra forks along, though. You know – just to properly judge the results.
2. Put a modern spin on the classic Valentine’s Day dance
Who says Valentine dances are just for school? Create an old-school vibe by hosting a Valentine’s dance where you and your friends can dance the night away. You could make it a couple’s occasion by having everyone show up with dates, or celebrate the single life by having everyone come stag.
3. Keep the drinks hot with a Valentine’s Day coffee bar
Few things are as warm and snug as sipping a hot cup of coffee on a chilly day. Let your friends enjoy some of that warmth with you by hosting your Valentine’s party at a coffee shop.
Not into coffee? No one said that hot chocolate is off the table!
4. Watch your fave rom-coms during a Valentine’s movie-thon
Are you something of a rom-com junkie? Put your catalog of movies to good use by hosting a Valentine’s rom-com marathon with your friends. Take your pic from classic movies like When Harry Met Sally or Pretty Woman, or curate a more modern selection of movies – like Love Simon or Crazy Rich Asians.
If you want to enjoy that big screen experience during your Valentine’s movie marathon, Peerspace private movie theater rentals can help you set a magical scene.
All good parties need plenty of photographic evidence, so check out our Valentine’s Day photo ideas for inspiration on doing so!
5. Make it sweet and chic with a Valentine’s Day dinner party
You don’t need a sweetheart to enjoy a sumptuous Valentine’s Day dinner. Try throwing a dinner party for your friends where everyone can enjoy a Valentine-inspired menu. Dishes like juicy prime rib steak or creamy lobster bisque can provide a luxurious touch ideal for a holiday treat.
This classy TriBeCa/SoHo event space loft in NYC not only provides an awesome setting for this idea, but the host can also help you nab some delectable catering.
6. Gather with your girls for aGalentine’s Day party
Who needs romance on February 14th when you can have a blast on February 13th, AKA Galentine’s Day. Instead of hosting a Valentine’s party, honor Galentine’s Day by getting your group of favorite girls together.
You could spend a cozy night in, watching movies and eating chocolates, or head out on the town and break hearts together. We definitely won’t blame you if you enjoy it more than Valentine’s Day.
7. Help love blossom by throwing a Valentine’s Day single’s mixer
Want to spice up your love life on the day of love? Throwing a Valentine’s singles mixer could be the perfect opportunity to shake things up on Valentine’s Day. A change of scenery can help you set the mood for mingling with new friends.
Look out for Peerspace venues with a colorful and flirty atmosphere, like this huge all-pink event venue in Inglewood, CA. Who knows – maybe you’ll find someone to spend your next Valentine’s Day with!
8. Treat your guests to an amazing Valentine’s Day brunch
Brunch is one of the most versatile meals in the world, and an awesome excuse to pig out with friends on a holiday like Valentine’s Day. Valentine-inspired brunch dishes can include adorable heart-shaped pancakes, delectable bacon rose quiche or passionate red grapefruit mimosas.
Don’t feel like cooking? Peerspace concierge doesn’t just do dinner, you know.
9. Get artsy with a Valentine’s Day crafting party
Crafts aren’t just for kids. You can host a fun and engaging Valentine’s party by creating DIY crafts together. Instead of making paper Valentines, try your hand at arranging flowers or creating a DIY chocolate box to store handmade treats. You can make gifts for your partner, family, or yourself and enjoy the company of your friends while you do it!
Be sure to use Peerspace to connect you with a welcoming and well-equipped workshop venue that has the space, vibe, and equipment you want.

Need to relax this February? This is one of the few Valentine’s party ideas for adults that will help you unwind. Host a Spa day retreat where you and your friends can enjoy a little “me-time”. Think mani-pedis, massages, or even just a long soak in a hot tub. If you want to make your retreat a little more secluded, a private Peerspace spa can help you create the laid-back Valentine’s atmosphere you need.
Our friends in Denver can head to this lovely intimate beauty escape and party studio in Baker that offers you amazing spa services as well as party extras, like a bar and DJ!
11. Give back with a Valentine’s charity drive
Want to give back to your community for the holiday? You’ll love this Valentine’s party idea for adults. Organize a Valentine’s charity drive for a local charity organization. Worthy causes include animal shelters, soup kitchens, domestic violence shelters, or any other cause you’re passionate about. Not only will you get to have a day of fun with friends, but you’ll also get to spread love with others.
12. Make it memorable with a Valentine’s karaoke party
Even if you’re not a fan of Valentine’s Day, you can’t deny that it’s an amazing excuse to blast your favorite love songs on high. Put your love of power ballads to good use by hosting a karaoke party on Valentine’s Day. You and your friends will have the perfect excuse to sing along with Celine or Whitney at the top of your lungs.
And if you need help finding a karaoke room, check out Peerspace to find karaoke party venues in your area. One super sophisticated option is this sleek, modern karaoke bar in Manhattan, NYC that also provides you with tempting Korean and Japanese dishes.
13. Make it memorable by hosting a Valentine’s drink-tasting
Want something a little stronger than coffee or hot chocolate? Try hosting a drink-tasting party where you and your friends can sample alcoholic beverages like wine or beer.
Instead of going to a normal bar, you can make an impression by heading straight to the source and hosting it at a brewery or distillery available to book through Peerspace. One of our favorites is this downtown distillery tasting room in Seattle, WA, which offers tours, tastings, and party setup.
Sampling fresh-brewed beverages surrounded by your closest friends? Sounds like a recipe for a perfect Valentine’s Day in our book.
