If you’re looking for an intimate night out but an experience that is unique like no other, then Ophelia’s never disappoints.

Ophelia’s, the sex-positive brothel-turned-bar, already has the sensual vibe that Valentine’s Day inherently ensues.

Evan Honer @ The Bluebird Theater

If you’re looking for something a little more laid back for the evening, then Evan Honer could be your jam this Valentine’s Day. His Americana music has roots in country, folk and bluegrass, all lending to a romantic tone that will have you swaying on the dance floor. The Bluebird’s capacity is 500 so it’s big enough, yet also intimate in a way that you won’t be elbow-to-elbow with other concert-goers. It also lends a beautiful backdrop to your special date night with historic and vintage vibes throughout the theater.

Extreme with Living Colour @ The Ogden Theatre

Late 80s and early 90s legends Extreme and Living Colour are coming to the Ogden Theatre for a night of rock and roll this Valentine’s Day. Extreme is best known for their hit single “More Than Words,” which debuted in 1991 and yet is still a timeless love song. While Extreme and Living Colour each boast iconic power ballads, you will surely get a mix of upbeat electric guitar and drums along with slower acoustic and romantic songs. The Ogden Theatre holds almost three times as many people as the Bluebird, so if you’re looking for something with a little bit higher energy, Extreme’s concert might be more your vibe for the night.

Dine & Dance: Myra Warren & The Mark Diamond Trio @ Nissi’s

There are a few nights out that are more romantic than dinner with a side of live music, especially when the meal features a curated Valentine’s Day menu. Nissi’s Entertainment Venue and Events Center in Lafayette is offering a three-course meal with a serving of live jazz (and optional dancing). This will definitely be one of the more romantic musical experiences you could get into on the day of love, so if you’re looking for something super intimate, this may be right up your alley. Myra Warren and the Mark Diamond trio are known for their stunningly melodic jazz and blues music throughout Denver.
