From a gourmet chocolate shop serving up chocolate-dipped Oreos to a luxe hotel for a sexy staycation, we’ve rounded up four spots to have an unforgettable Valentine’s Day celebration in West Hollywood.
Nestled on leafy Melrose Place, Compartes chocolate shop is filled with gourmet confections your sweetheart will fall in love with. Splurge on a limited edition Valentine’s Day heart-shaped gift box packed with luscious truffles, a box of chocolate-dipped Oreos, or a handcrafted chocolate heart garnished with a variety of fruits, nuts, and spices. 8428 Melrose Place, West Hollywood
West Hollywood’s The Empty Vase is where celebs go for extravagant floral bouquets in LA. The arrangements here are far from ordinary. Say “I love you” with a box brimming with red and pink roses, or a breathtaking heart-shaped floral sculpture. And just like Taylor Swift Instagrammed the couture arrangement of white roses she received from Kanye West, your valentine too won’t be able to resist snapping copious photos of their special Valentine’s Day arrangement. 9033 Santa Monica Blvd., West Hollywood, 310-278-1988
Even if you and you’re sweetheart aren’t vegans, a Valentine’s Day dinner at cult-favorite West Hollywood restaurant Gracias Madre will feel like an indulgent treat. The Mexican hot spot’s four-course prix-fixe menu includes a roasted beet soup, a higo asada salad, stuffed portobello en croix, and a sumptuous chocolate cake with luxardo cherry cashew cream, chile ganache, and cinnamon syrup for dessert. Couples can wash it all down with the Hotline Sling cocktail composed of gin, sloe berry, aqua faba, and chocolate salt. 8905 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, 323-978-2170
After dinner at Gracias Madre, starry-eyed couples can head to the Mondrian Hotel on the Sunset Strip for a sexy staycation. The In Love package includes overnight accommodations, a bottle of champagne, and Le Belge Chocolatier truffles. The next morning, snuggle in bed a little longer then head downstairs for breakfast at the hotel's Ivory on Sunset restaurant and dig into brioche French toast, buttermilk pancakes, or a lobster scramble. 8440 Sunset Blvd., West Hollywood, 323-650-8999
