Create the Perfect Valentine’s Day with Cork Bar & Restaurant

We know planning the Hallmark-inspired Valentine’s Day can be exhausting and time-consuming. Flowers and chocolate? Jewelry? All three? Or maybe just surprise her with a giant teddy bear that she’ll post one picture on Instagram then promptly donate it to charity. So many decisions, and so much pressure all for one night. Let Cork Bar & Restuarant help you plan the ultimate Valentine’s Day–no gigantic teddy bears required.

The Gift

While you may be tempted to say, “Our love is the greatest gift of all,” and sure, it may be true, having a little something wrapped in a bow can’t hurt. Remember, price isn’t the point. It’s the thought that counts.

Not sure what to get your special someone? Think of something the two of you can enjoy together. A heart locket is nice, and so is a new wallet, but let’s face it–that’s been your go-to for years. Shake it up with a night out!

Surprise your sweetheart with a wine tasting! We host them quite often. Want to give it a go? Book your reservation for our Winter Wine Series: Romeo & Juliet on February 4. If you love it, come back in March for our Winter Wine Series: Winter Whites.

The Meal

It’s not Valentine’s Day without a fancy dinner. At Cork Bar & Restaurant, you can enjoy some of the best Italian cuisine in Wilkes-Barre. The ambiance is a large part of the dining experience and your significant other wants to feel comfortable while celebrating with you. That’s why our spacious and classy, yet contemporary decor and relaxed cosmopolitan ambiance is the perfect fit for dining or entertaining. Want a little more privacy? The second floor of Cork provides the perfect hideaway for a romantic dinner for two.

Maybe you’ll even Lady and the Tramp some pasta

The Music

Just because you shared one of our delicious homemade desserts doesn’t mean the date is over! Take your special someone out on the town. The NEPA Philharmonic will perform at the F.M. Kirby Center on Valentine’s Day with “Respect: A Tribute to Aretha Franklin.” Surprise your date with tickets for this show and all your pals will be chanting R-E-S-P-E-C-T for your impressive date night.
