Vintage Valentines Dates in Sydney

Happy Valentines day to all my lovely readers. Whether you'll be spending the day alone or with your love I hope you all have a day filled with love. As for the Hubby and I we never really make a big thing of Valentines so we're spending the night at home with a nice home cooked meal, a bottle of wine and a romantic movie.  We are going out for a nice meal on Saturday night though as the Hubby's Mum bought us a voucher for a 5 course meal for Christmas so we decided to use it for Valentines. I'll blog about our meal next week.

But for now I have been inspired by Fleur's post about UK Vintage Date Ideas over on her blog Diary of a Vintage Girl I have put together a similar post for my fellow Sydneysiders. Here is my rundown of great vintage inspired valentines dates:

Enjoying a few cocktails at a vintage inspired bar with your loved one. For Sydneysiders I recommend Palmers & Co for a 1920's speakeasy feel or Hinky Dinks for that fab 1950's vibe.

For a fantastic meal in fab surroundings you can't go past Porteno Restaurant an Argentine restaurant with a rockabilly/1950s style!

A stroll along the beach:
With so many beautiful beaches in Sydney there's no shortage of choice. You can even pack a picnic just make sure you don't get sand in those sandwiches!

Visiting a heritage property:
My personal favourite is the 1950's built mid century modern style Rose Seidler house. You can even pack a picnic to enjoy in the grounds of the house. Why not check out Sydney Living Museums for more heritage properties.

All the fun of the Fair:
Why not enjoy all the fun of the fair at Luna Park. The park originally opened in 1935 and although none of the rides today are original it still holds that timeless appeal.

A night out dancing:
Check out Sydney Swing Patrol or Sydney Swing Katz for a fab night out swing dancing or for something a little more sultry check out Time Outs list of Sydney's best Salsa clubs.

Watching a romantic movie:
Sydney has a whole host of cinemas but for a truly vintage feel why not check out the Ritz Cinema in Randwick, the Hayden Orpheum in Cremone (a stunning 1930's cinema) or the Deco styled Cinema Paris at the Entertainment Quarter or for a 1950's themed date why not take a trip to Sydney's only drive in cinema, Skyline at Blacktown (They're showing The Notebook tonight).
