L’AMOUR ET MORE

February 1, 2011

I think my readers are mainly women. But while Valentine’s Day is approaching we’re expecting men to do the work. To choose a romantic hotel or a cozy restaurant. Usually they (no offence boys) don’t take taste very seriously. I’m not gonna tell you where some dates took me, but striplights were involved. You get it. I don’t let a man choose the restaurant because he’s already one step behind if he does. This post is dedicated to the man who wants to take his date to a cool, romantic place but don’t have the time or creativity to find the right spots. So pass it on to your loved one (like a hint), brother or best friend (to help them surprise their girlfriends). And be surprised when he takes you!

Happy Valentine’s day!


Take her to one of Amsterdam’s hottest places du moment: Lion Noir.


Go to Bo Cinq for some cocktails and small bites (note: girls who really like you don’t eat much. So please, please, please don’t go to some unlimited spare ribs place)


In the middle of a park. While every non-original man takes his girl to the Euromast, you know how to ditch the touristy sights and order some sushi for madame at the Harbour Club. Extra points in the pocket.

If you’re the man of my dreams you probably already booked a room at Verne Dreaming. Best option. Ever.

Spend a night at room 5 from Lute Suites. Cozy, cuddling and sexy time guaranteed.

More romantic spots:
A good one in Rotterdam: Wijn of Water in old container boxes. Doesn’t sound romantic but the place has a great view of the harbour.

Fly her to a Treehotel in Sweden and you get her in your own tree house

Carbon Hotel in Genk is the multifunctional hotel. You can take a bath together in your room because that bath is massive. You can go to the spa upstairs and you can dine in their fabulous restaurant.

If you’re getting serious and really like her: go for dinner at Badhu and reserve a room upstairs to top it off.

What’s your favorite romantic spot? Where would you take your lover?
