Valentine’s day; the greatly celebrated holiday of love, a reason to meet up, get together, take time with one another and create a weekend to remember with someone you love, at Maiyango.
The Finnish call it Ystävänpäivä – ‘Friend day’, the perfect way to embrace the day, a time to show appreciation and love for your friends, partners, family and loved ones.
We’ve pulled together some of our favourite ideas for a romantic Valentine’s in Leicester so hopefully, whatever your interests, you’ll find something perfect that you can both truly enjoy.
Leicester comedy festival takes place between 8th and 26th of February this year, right over the Valentine’s period. Perfect for something a little different for you and yours to enjoy, plus it’s a great idea for a first date or 100th date, who doesn’t love a laugh! See what takes your fancy here.
Chocolate: a romantic and luxurious treat, the perfect addition to a weekend spent with Maiyango. Coco Amore offer chocolate making workshops, meaning you and your date can get creative making your own chocolates, or maybe chocolates for each other, with Leicester’s luxury chocolatiers. Not to mention you’ll get to sample some tasters along the way, what better way to spend the day!
Treat yourselves to an evening of cocktails and discover new depths of flavour at the Maiyango bar, with our fantastic selection of beautiful concoctions for you to share. Take a spot on our roof terrace with views over the city, what a great excuse to cuddle up and enjoy the evening. Maybe you like the sound of cocktails but want to make the evening a little more impressive, our cocktail mixology masterclass may be exactly what you’re looking for; fun, tasty and will keep you and your date entertained all evening.
A leisurely walk with your Valentine is a simple pleasure to start your day, wrap up warm, take in the fresh February air and enjoy the scenic views that the Leicestershire county has to offer, perhaps you’ll visit the lovely Bradgate park for a stroll. There are some beautiful spots in Leicester, so pick one and lose yourselves for the day; what an excellent way to work up an appetite before joining us for some tantalising treats.
To really make your evening and polish off your Valentine’s day perfectly, Maiyango have elegantly shaped a Valentine’s experience for you to enjoy in our restaurant. This Valentine’s evening you can join us at either 6.30pm or 9.30pm for a cocktail and canapes welcome reception, allowing you to arrive and feel instantly pampered. Then continue this experience and indulge in a beautiful 6-coursetaster menu in the Maiyango restaurant leaving you satisfied and relaxed with your date this Valentine’s day.
Valentine’s this year falls on a Tuesday, so if you can’t manage to make the 14th, or perhaps you would prefer to wait until the weekend to celebrate, our Date Night is available Sunday – Thursday and includes our cocktail class and a 4 course taster menu, so not to worry, we’ve got you covered!
