There’s plenty to do near The Avalon Marlborough this Valentine’s Day, whether you want to enjoy a nice dinner, or want to race around shooting lazers at your significant other – Marlborough has plenty to offer! Here are some of our top picks for Valentine’s day plans near the Avalon Marlborough.

Enjoy a Romantic Dinner Out

“Dinner out.” It’s a classic for a reason. Relax, get served a great meal, and spend time focusing on your significant other. Or your awesome group of friends! Make reservations for the below spots as soon as you possibly can. Both feature special Valentine’s events that are sure to fill up fast!

Allora (139 Lakeside Avenue)

Dine on trendy truffle fries, lobster mac ‘n’ cheese, and the seafood of your dreams. Diners have called the food “phenomenal,” and one glance at the menu says it all. Charlie Ferro, the Italian/American owner, is quite a character. Enjoy live jazz on V-Day.

FISH (29 S. Bolton Street)

The main page of this restaurant will have you salivating (check out those scallops). This place is in Boston Magazine’s Top 20 restaurants for seafood lovers list. After Valentines Day, return for the dollar oysters every Sunday. Oh – and they’re serious about their wines here. Most are sustainable, organic, and biodynamically made.


Discover Your Inner Kid

Maybe you need a break from the responsibilities of adulthood – head to one of the spots below to feel that rare freedom this Valentine’s Day.

LazerZone (416 Boston Post Rd. E.)

Remember all the time you spent at the Lazerplex, perfecting your shot? No? Well, it’s about time you made your way over to LazerZone, where you and your date can unleash your inner kids and actually have fun this V-Day.

Trombetta’s Farm (277 Main Street)

Mini golf and homemade ice cream. If you want to have a low-key good time, head to Trombetta’s farm. Putt-putt is always fun, but even more fun when there’s sugary homemade goodness involved.

Navin Skating Arena (451 Bolton Street)

Is there anything more romantic than ice skating? Well, assuming you’re good at it. It’s $5 to ride, and $5 for the skates.


Be Entertained

If you’re really feeling ambitious, head to dinner and a show. Whether it’s a play, film, or live music there’s always something going on near The Avalon Marlborough that will transport you to another (more dramatic) world.

Regal Solomon Pond Stadium Cinemas (591 Donald Lynch Blvd.)

When’s the last time you saw a movie, complete with popcorn and Swedish Fish? Even if it was last week, there are several movies coming out around the 14th that are worth seeing.

Speakers Night Club (19 Weed Street)

A Brasilian Dance Band will be featured on Valentine’s Day, so if you and your S.O. are light on your feet (or just enjoy good music and drinks), head over to Speakers Night Club.


Post-Valentine’s Day Bonus:

Ghost Light Players (37 High Street)

They’re still working on a play that won’t be ready until march, but buy your tickets in advance for Romeo and Juliet in June, and get a dose of romance mid-simmer.

You have plenty of options, now all you have to do is set up those reservations! The Avalon Marlborough is close to each of these events, restaurants, and plays, so they’ll be easy to access.
