Valentine’s Day is nearly here, and luckily for some, it falls on a Friday this year.

Chic Dubai hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC has plenty of awesome ways you can spend February 14, whether you’re looking for a romantic dinner with your loved one or a fabulous brunch to spend the day with your friends.

For those in the throes of romance, Belgian restaurant, Café Belge is offering a specially-selected three course menu, followed by a decadent dessert, priced from Dhs450 per couple. It’s the perfect setting to spend some quality time.

Fancying French cuisine? Check out stunning French restaurant Le Cirque, where there’s a four-course set menu to enjoy, as a live pianist plays throughout the evening. Paired with a glass of bubbly each, it’s Dhs688 per couple or paired with a bottle of bubbles, it’s Dhs1288.

If you’re not so much in the place for romance this year, why not get your group of single friends together for the famous Secret Garden Brunch at Flair 5 (formerly known as Flair No.5)? The brunch is run by the well-known Secret Parties Group and the botanical terrace at Flair 5 certainly provides the perfect backdrop for those envy-inducing Instagram pics.

Food is served sharing-style, with hummus and dips, tacos, beef tartare and grilled salmon to dig into and you can wash it down with cocktails from the live drink stations or free-flowing house beverages (from Dhs399) as the DJ heats up the party. An afterparty kicks off from 5pm.

Whether you’re single or coupled up, there’s also a chance to win a diamond pendant necklace from Aliel Jewellers, a staycation and lots more. To be in with a chance, all you have to do is spend Dhs500 or more at Le Cirque, or Café Belge, or Flair 5 on Valentine’s Day.

How will you spend it this year?
