Planning on going out for Valentine’s Day? You probably should’ve made reservations to a fancy dinner weeks ago, but there’s no need to fret if you didn’t. Having a nice night out on the town is still possible thanks to these Valentine’s-themed drinks available at a handful of Austin bars and restaurants.
Here’s where you can go if you need last-minute plans.

Drink pink for Valentine’s Day. At least that’s what this West Sixth-area bar is proposing with its “Pretty in Pink” Valentine’s Day party featuring the 1980s cult classic. The Molly Ringwald movie will play on the back patio starting at 7 p.m. while you enjoy glasses of Frosé or rosé and indulge in strawberry cake or one of Irene’s special Valentine’s Day sweets.
A purchase of anything pink (FrosÃ©, RosÃ©, Goodnight Irene Shots or Valentineâ€™s Day desserts) at our #PrettyInPink Party on 2/14 gets you a raffle ticket for the chance to win pink jewelry from @kendrascottâ€™s Spring collection! Weâ€™ll draw winners after the movie screening ends.
