The slick crooner behind early ’00s melodies like ‘Walking Away’ and ‘Fill Me In’ makes an appearance at Zouk on the day of love for a night of garage and hip hop hits. If ‘7 Days’ was your jam back in school, this’ll be one throwback party to remember.

Valen-what? The lively Mexican joint throws its yearly bash for all haters of V-day, with a funky fiesta for all single ladies and lads to get crunk. The dress code is “sexy”, complete with “sexy tunes” by DJ Justo, and heart-themed activities include the “Bash My Ex” piñata, an adult pop-up shop, the Loco love wheel, and Love Me Tinder, where you get free shots if you match with another lonesome living soul on the dating app.
Feb 14, 7pm-late at Lucha Loco.
Salute to singlehood at this hotel rooftop club, which will be home to an anti-Valentine’s party come Feb 14.
