This year, Valentine's Day falls on a Monday — easily the least romantic day of the week. Not to worry, Miami bartenders are ready to get you in the mood no matter where you find yourself on the relationship spectrum — single, taken, or it's extremely complicated.
So whether you're celebrating the weekend before or the day of, toast Cupid with one or all of the Valentine's Day-inspired cocktails and drink specials listed below in alphabetical order by venue.
Cocktails are available on February 14, unless otherwise specified.

Ladies can snag one for free on Sunday, February 13, when they post a pic with their Galentine's Day date and tag 1-800 Lucky. The specialty cocktail will be available for purchase February 13-19 for $12.
