Where to Spend Valentines Day 2022

Valentine’s day is always a cause for celebration. Everywhere you look, there are hearts and cupids, establishments are adorned in red, white, and pink, and flowers fill every nook and cranny. Reminders of love are overflowing, and one can’t help but smile at the extravagance of it all. Ideally, couples celebrate their love every day of the year. But Valentine’s day should be an excuse to go all out on the celebrations. Given a difficult couple of years, Valentine’s day 2022 signals a return to a bit of normalcy amid the ongoing pandemic.

There are several different ways to celebrate the day of love. For couples living together, Valentine’s celebrations might begin at their luxury condo right after they wake up. It could be a sweet breakfast in bed surprise, waking up to flowers and chocolate, or even a heartfelt sunrise wedding proposal! Or, couples could arrange to meet for a date involving a celebratory meal, movies, or a road trip. No matter how couples choose to celebrate Valentine’s day 2022, underneath all the preparations and the glitz is the acknowledgment and appreciation of the love they share for each other.

Traditionally, Valentine’s day is a day for lovers, but people have also used February 14 to celebrate platonic love in recent years. Dubbing the celebration as Galentine’s or Palentine’s, friends get together to have fun and celebrate the strong bond they have. On the day of love, anyone who wants to celebrate is made to feel welcome and loved.

Because of the limitations brought about by the pandemic, couples may feel stumped about where and how to spend Valentine’s day 2022. To help couples (and friends) out, here is a curated list of places to be for the day of love. And the best thing about these suggestions? They are open year-round, so you can revisit special moments with your loved one anytime you wish!

Established in 2014, Coffee Projects opened its doors to coffee lovers and memory collectors alike. The interiors of each branch are designed with the utmost care, making for a unique and eyecatching backdrop for Instagram photos. In addition, mood lighting and comfortable seating make for a cozy space for couples to enjoy their Valentine’s coffee together.

Of course, people don’t go to a coffee shop for the ambiance alone. They also come for great coffee and delicious food. Coffee Project uses a combination of 70% Arabica coffee from Brazil and 30%  Robusta from Sumatra for their signature coffee blend. The result is a delightfully aromatic coffee with chocolate and fruity notes. Loyal customers also swear by Coffee Project’s Vietnamese Latte. Aside from coffee, this place also serves pastries, sandwiches, pasta, and rice meals.

Another reason to love Coffee Project is their branches’ proximity to luxury condominiums and world-class hotels. So if you and your special person want to celebrate at Coffee Project on a daily basis, check out a luxury condo unit nearby.
