Check out Luminary’s top picks for dates that are sure to turn on the charm in Charm City this Valentine’s Day. 

A Magical Evening

Make your Valentine’s Day magical, and attend one of the many shows at Poe’s Magic Theater. Just a three-minute walk from Luminary, Poe’s is a great option if you’re looking to try something new. Poe’s offers a variety of acts, such as murder mysteries, ghost tours and illusionists, so there is sure to be a show that interests you and your date.

Desserts with a View

Head down to the harbor and make a stop at Vaccaro’s for a sweet treat! Grab a ‘Vaccaro’s Style’ cappuccino to keep warm, and take a stroll along the waterfront with your partner. Maybe you don’t enjoy all of the fanfare that comes with Valentine’s Day, but an excuse to take in Baltimore’s best views with that special someone and eat a cannoli? Now, even you can get behind Valentine’s Day.

The Classic

When all else fails, why not stick with a classic? Head to Ida B’s Table and The Charles Theater for dinner and a movie. Ida B’s Table is a modern soul food restaurant with a bar, parlor, drawing room and main dining area. After a meal of chicken, short ribs and yams, settle in for a movie at the historic Charles Theater. If you want to keep your night really timeless, you can even catch a showing of a throwback film on 35mm prints. 

Whether you’ll be hitting the town with your partner, best friend or need to schedule in some me-time, these dates are sure to make for a memorable holiday in Charm City.
