Valentine’s Day in Downtown Red Deer


3 minute read

Downtown Romance – Valentines Day Guide to the Most Romantic Locations

Valentines Day is fast approaching and we’ve compiled a list of just a few wonderful ways for you to celebrate in the heart of Red Deer’s Historic Downtown! Whether you’re looking for that quiet little corner, or a more upbeat room with live music, or even something a little different… we think the list below has something for everyone looking to celebrate Valentines Day this weekend!

How about a classic Italian dinner in a warm and inviting setting? The team at La Casa Pergola have created a special Valentine’s Menu for you and your date, or you can choose to dine from their regular menu as well! Located at 4909 48 st.  Call 403-342-2404 to make your reservation.

Looking for some live music as an accompaniment to your romantic dinner? The folks at Tribe have just what you’re looking for! For just $65 per guest, you can enjoy a 7 course meal complete with bubbly, and listen to the sounds of local pianist Curtis Labelle throughout dinner service in an absolutely stunning room! Located in the Farthing Block on Ross Street – Call or text 403-302-3580 to book your seats!   OR… More live music and a 3 course meal can be found around the corner at Burgundy’s Food & Stage. Enjoy 3 courses for $40 plus the musically stylings of Ryan Cardnuff and other guests as well! Call 403-986-1332 to book!

Don’t want to be pinned down to a set time or day? Why not pop in to Original Joe’s? From now until Feb 16 they have a special Valentine’s menu available anytime for you to enjoy, including wine specials and more! OR swing on over to the hip new revamped cocktail bar that is the talk of the town, Occam’s Razor, for a delicious meal paired with hand crafted cocktails from some of the most knowledgeable bartenders in the industry. (They have a pretty sweet wine selection too).

Maybe you’re looking for something a little different? Downtown’s legendary back alley gem, The Velvet Olive Lounge, is hosting Open Magic Night on Valentines Day.  Similar to their popular open mic night, but with a twist! Each performer will have 5-7 minutes to perform either one trick or a short routine. You will be judged on presentation and creativity. Prizes will be awarded for various skill categories. Or just go and watch the show! No cover!

Our suggestion? Why not make a tour of it? Maybe a nice dinner at one location, a quick stroll for a cocktail afterwards, and end the night with a little “magic”?

So many options in the heart of the city. Happy Valentines Day!

Stay in touch!  We’re Downtown Red Deer Adventures and we’re usually up to something fun downtown!
