Best restaurants for Valentine’s Day: here’s a selection of 5 design locations for the most unforgettable night

All the way from Paris to Venice and London, we picked a few locations d’auteur with high design content for the best romantic surprise


The Sketch Gallery London

Valentine’s Day is at risk! Still a romantic chance in old black and white movies, nowadays it actually has to deal with super-sized heart-shaped balloons popping out everywhere and bottomless lists of rules on how to spend a charming night among soulmates.

But what if we’d rather make the most out of Lover’s Day and go travelling somewhere else?

Here follows a selection of the best 5 restaurants for Valentine’s Day addressed to any globe-trotters out there.

Let’s hop to London, right to the pink velvet-wrapped The Sketch Gallery gastro-brasserie. In here, the soft-looking custom-made furniture is perfectly inscribed into a rare and surreal atmosphere created by Inda Mahavi and dotted with 239 original sketches by ultra-witty British artist David Shrigley. The man is also author – in partnership with chef Pierre Gagnaire – of all tableware. The restaurant’s motto is “Champagne is always the answer”… A great start, isn’t it?

If you happen to be in Los Angeles (luck you!), the place to be on Valentine’s Day is definitely 71Above, set 300 metres above the streets of Downtown on the 71st level of U.S. Bank Tower. Tag Front Architecture took care of the interior layout by allowing for 360° breath-taking views: welcome to the most ideal hideaway to enjoy some Californian sunset while tenderly holding hands.

Whether staying in the ultra-romantic ville lumière, just celebrate a très chic Valentine’s Day at the legendary Hôtel Plaza Athénée, one of the many chef/entrepreneur Alain Ducasse-owned restaurants. You will love such shiny environment enriched with rounded cream-coloured benches with silvery backs, which are artfully paired with Swarovski crystal chandeliers and gold-decorated ceilings. Project by Patrick Jouin and Sanjit Manku.

Forget Paris: Venice is the city of love par excellence. If by any chance you are planning to stop by the lagoon on the night of 14th February, you have no choice but book Amo, the new eclectic restaurant designed by Philip Stark and run by Michelin-starred brothers Alajmo. Such fanciness is located at the base of Venice’s Rialto Bridge, inside the atrium of the recently-remodeled T Fondaco dei Tedeschi luxury department store, whose renovation project comes from Dutch studio OMA.

And now, let’s wrap up our list with Milanese restaurant 28 posti  (Via Corsica, 1). Originally from Procida, young chef Marco Ambrosini offers seasonal menus imbued with cuisine d’auteur for an affordable price. Conceived by Gaetano Berni, Maria Luisa Daglia and Francesco Faccin, the project is strong of its sophisticated and minimal vibes; as part of the Made in Bollate project, inmates of the Penitentiary Institute of Bollate, a nearby commune in Lombardy, helped build the restaurant and realise the entire array of tables, doors and cabinets especially designed by Francesco Faccin with the help of master woodcarver Giuseppe Filippini.

Well, happy Valentine’s Day everyone, and enjoy your trip!
