How To Celebrate Valentine’s Day With Your Girlfriends
Valentine’s Day can be a tricky holiday. Unlike Christmas or Thanksgiving, the whole point is to be in a relationship. Who has the time for relationship these days anyway? For those of you that are spoken for, we wish you an awesome, romantic, cheesy Valentine’s Day. For the single ladies, we’re all about celebrating Galentine’s Day!
The idea is to celebrate friendship and independence with your “Gals” and have a fun-filled night – because spending Valentine’s Day with your girlfriends hungover in bed after a fun night is way cooler than crying in bed to Adele’s new album. So, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to provide all our ladies celebrating Galentine’s Day this year with the perfect plans for a girls night! Here’s the game plan:
1.Start with the perfect cocktail
For the syrup:
- 1/3 cup blackberries, plus 8 more for garnish
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup sugar
For the cocktail:
- 1 bottle of Prosecco or champagne
For the garnish:
- 4 sprigs of thyme
- In a small saucepan, bring the blackberries, water and sugar to a boil. Turn to low and let simmer for 10 minutes. Strain blackberries and let syrup cool.
- Add 2 tbsp. of syrup to the bottom of each glass. Top with champagne and add in a sprig of thyme and 2 blackberries!

2. Put On Mood Music
Majid Jordan, a Canadian duo signed to Drake’s OVO Sound have just released a new album. Think The Weeknd meets Disclosure. Their Electro/ R&B sounds are the perfect backdrop for a fun Valentine’s day with your girlfriends. Our fave track is Learn From Each Other.

3. Hit the dance floor
Once you’ve got your groove on, it’s time to head out with the girls. Try Montreal’s Mayfair for your big night out. This London themed cocktail bar and tea room was designed by Amlyne Phillips who also designed Apt 200, Scarlet, Jatoba and L’Gros Luxe. This hot spot has an upper class Britain and Victorian feel, plush seats and dim lighting, perfect for lounging.
This is a great spot to sit back sip on cocktails with your girlfriends, while checking out cute guys at the bar. Oh, and they recently added high tea bites (just in case you want to munch on a little something).
