There may be no sweeter place in Texas to take your Valentine than Round Top. Whether you’re looking for a romantic dinner for two, sweet treats, burgers, brews and two-stepping cheek-to-cheek, or a full-blown love (and jewelry shopping) fest weekend, you can find it in the Round Top region.

This is a place where Valentine’s Day reaches another level. Let’s look at some of the Best Places to Enjoy a Round Top Valentine’s:

The burrata prosciutto sandwich at Boon & Co

Boon & Co

This European inspired bistro and boutique has quickly ascended to favorite new spot status in Round Top. Take your gal pals, or your special someone to enjoy Chef Nate Pineda’s bright, fresh menu featuring salads made with produce and herbs plucked from the romantic onsite garden, expertly prepared proteins, sandwiches and hand tossed, wood fired pizzas.

Boon & Co’s upscale interior also boasts a bar with a stellar wine list and handcrafted cocktails. Shop the boutique for hand tooled silver buckles and fine leather belts from the legacy the craftsmen at Maida’s Belts and Buckles. Also, imported pantry items, home decor, candles, jewelry, baby and more. 

Lulu’s and Hotel Lulu

Lulu’s restaurant is one of the most romantic spots in Round Top for a cocktail and/or a beautiful Italian meal. Get there before your reservation to snag a spot in Il Cuculo bar’s intimate new lounge area for an aperitif and a quick start on the Valentine’s fun. Lulu’s will unveil a new menu just in time for Valentine’s Day featuring caviar service, truffles and fresh pastas.

And why not make a whole night of it?

Hotel Lulu is conveniently located behind the restaurant with several gorgeous cabins beckoning. Lulu’s Valentine’s Day dinner includes an optional three course tasting menu with a free glass of prosecco. Hotel Lulu’s “That’s Amore! Valentine Package” includes the three course dinner for two at the restaurant and a bottle of champagne and chocolates delivered to your room.

The Frenchie

The Frenchie Boutique Hotel is modern country elegance at its youthful, Palm Beachy best. Book a room in the stunning main house, or in any of the individual cabins on the property for a Valentine’s weekend escape. Use of the hot tub and access to The Frenchie’s new Pool House for specialty cocktails and light bites from in-house chef Brenna McBroom are reserved for hotel guests only.

Red Antler Round Top

The Red Antler luxury bungalows have become one of the most sought-after places to stay in Round Top.

Located within easy distance of all of Round Top’s best restaurants and shopping.

Round Top Liquor Shop

Don’t forget to stop by this Henkel Square Market gem to stock up on all your special Valentine’s Day libations. From top shelf liquors to beer, fine wines and more, Round Top Liquor Shop has it all, in stock and ready to carry out. And don’t forget the ice (they have that, too)!

The Jon Perez Lounge at The Stone Cellar and Round Top Dance Hall

The Stone Cellar’s Jon Perez lounge is a more upscale spot tucked inside the bar to enjoy elevated cocktails, beer and wine. It also has its own special menu.

If a casually indulgent night is more your thing, you could also just order up a pair of the best burgers in town at The Stone Cellar bar. After dinner, walk over to the Round Top Dance Hall to scoot boots to live music and clink longnecks with your love. See who’s playing at the dancehall this weekend here.

As always, Round Top’s year-round stores will be open for shopping this weekend. Most are open Thursdays through Sundays. What’s more romantic than a little trinket shopping at local jewelry stores?

Some of the year-round favorites are Richard Schmidt and The Store (featuring jewels from M.U.S.E.) in Round Top Village, Wimberly Inc. in Henkel Square, and Via Vandi in Rolland Square.
