Valentine’s day is just around the corner, and we know you’re already googling places to spend time with bae on this special occasion. Thinking of setting up a date that’s completely different from the usual? Here’s a tip: head up north! The newly-opened North Towers in SM City North EDSA has a diverse selection of café, restos and entertainment areas where you can have a brand-new Valentine experience that’s one for the books. Plus, it’s a great, hassle-free hangout spot—just exactly what you need for this day.
Planning to list down your choices for V-day? We’ve curated some new date spots located at North Towers to help you choose. You’re welcome.
Movie dates on the 14th are so overrated. Instead, get creative and check out this indoor bouncing playground that’s sure to be your new favorite go-to place! Spend your special day on this play area and be like ninjas for a day.
Avail their unlimited play for Php 499 and have fun jumping through different courses—from trampoline parks to dodgeball and volleyball zones. A little trivia: exercising on trampoline is also a great way to get fit, so it’s a great reason to skip the gym for a day. Bounce also has ball and sponge pits that look perfect on your Instagram feed. After a whole day of enjoying with your SO, you can both rest and chill at the café located inside the venue.
Barkin’ Blends Dog Café
Want to level-up from your usual coffee dates? Invite your SO at Barkin’ Blends Dog Café and spend a day with adorable pups! You’ll be welcomed with very friendly doggos which you can play and take lots of selfies with. Aside from the café menu (which is very eye-candy), they also sell treats that you can feed to these happy doggos.
A casual dinner is always a classic Valentine’s idea, but dining in a fancy place with budget-friendly price—then that’s another story. Roberto’s, a Filipino-American fusion steakhouse, offer premium steaks without the costly price. Look forward to indulgent dishes like cochinillo, roast chicken, BBQ beef ribs, and pastas. You can pair them with the restaurant’s wide selection of wines. They have salads too, just in case you feel guilty of the calories (or not).
Have you ever spent the hearts day by playing your favorite game with your favorite person? We’ve got news! There’s a Mineski Infinity located at the ground floor of North Towers that is also open 24/7. There’s another mall entrance in front of Mineski where you can come in before and after mall hours. Note: overnight parking fee is waived! Sounds like a great Valentine’s idea? Bring out your competitiveness by challenging your bae to a game! Go for the VIP area, which features curved monitors, comfier seats and fast wi-fi. Snacks are also available inside, just in case you stay the whole day (or two, who knows?). It’s a completely different Valentine’s day you won’t forget.
Lumiere Skin and Spa
If you’re the type of couple who’s always on adventures but wants to slow down this time, why not have a chill and relaxing Valentine’s this year? Lumiere Skin and Spa offers a full body massage to relax your senses, and they have a couple room for you and your SO. They also have a combination of full body massage or body scrub and body wrap which lasts for two hours for a longer pampering experience.

Macao Imperial Tea
We have countless coffee dates with our bae, but have you ever gone to a milk tea date? North Towers has everyone’s newest favorite milk tea place, Macao Imperial Tea that is a perfect hangout place. Its cute interiors will surely make it to your Instagram feed; there’s a huge teddy bear inside for photo-ops (and unli hugs). Their cheesecake series are to die for, and their special drinks have an adorable packaging that you can take home. Pair these drinks with their cakes and cookies for the sweetest date ever!
