This month isn’t only about wining and dining your significant other — it’s also about celebrating your favorite gal pals. February 13 is officially Galentine’s Day, so rally up your squad and get ready for a fabulous night out. To make the planning process easier for you, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite options for the ultimate ladies night at the best mall in Miami.
Helmed by Chef Michael Mina and bestselling cookbook author Ayesha Curry, International Smoke is all about big flavor. Tell your girls to bring an appetite, because the dishes here are perfect for sharing with friends. February 13 falls on a Thursday this year, so don’t miss out on happy hour from 4-6 p.m.
Burn off some of those delicious calories with a quick lap around your favorite stores and boutiques. Zara and All Saints are always sure bets when looking for some trendy new additions to your wardrobe. And you can treat yourself to some bling at David Yurman, Cartier, John Hardy or Kay’s.
Did you know Aventura Mall is home to a 24-screen, 80,000-square-foot theater equipped with LoveSeat stadium seating and IMAX technology? Settle in with your besties for the ultimate movie night at AMC Aventura 24, where you can choose between February blockbusters like Birds of Prey, Gretel and Hansel (if you like scary flicks), and more.
You can chat all about the movie over a glass of champagne and a French pastry at Beluga Bar, or stop by Kilwins for the ultimate sweet treat (fudge, ladies?). If you’re a fan of ice cream, it doesn’t get much better than the decadent spirit-infused creations at Aubi & Ramsa — the Milagro reposado-infused agave dulce de leche ice cream is a knockout.
It may be a weeknight, but who can say no to one more cocktail, especially with options like those at Aventura Mall? Hit the bar at Tap 42 and take advantage of their late-night happy hour (hosted weekdays from 10 p.m. until closing time). Or head to Bella Luna for a glass of your favorite red or white.
