I'm sure if she goes to school in orlando then she's already been but maybe after a light dinner you could go to the Ice Bar have a few drinks.

icebar is nice I believe girls get in chapter on Thursdays if you buy tickets advanced on their website. each drink in the icebar was 6 or 7 bucks and they were all vodka based just fyi. In the fire lounge they have full bar.

The Ravenous Pig in Winter Park is ridiculously good. I just ate there Saturday night and it was excellent. If you're a bourbon drinker, they infuse their bourbon with bacon for their ravenous pig old fashioned. The Dram and the Franco 75 drinks are fantastic as well. If you guys like Thai food, I would recommend SEA Thai off of Colonial near Baldwin Park.

Honestly, Ice Bar is a tourist trap. For what it is, it's not worth it. Grey Goose lounge above Amway is kinda cool if you haven't been, and there's no cover.

The Ravenous Pig is great, as is their sister company, Cask and Larder. Good luck getting a reservation there for V-Day though. SEA Thai is excellent!! A nice spot on Park Ave in Winter Park is El Bodegon. Traditional Spanish Tapas. Prices are decent and food is great.

Personally, I usually grab some nice steaks and lobster tails and grill them for my girl. She loves it and we get to avoid the V-Day waiting and crowds. I usually take her out to eat often anyway.

Good luck OP

If you like Whisky, Corona's downtown has a great selection. It's a cigar bar, so if she doesn't like the smoke, then I would avoid it, but the do have a great selection. As does Ceviche. It's a tapas bar downtown on Church St.

Kinda hard to find a great bar with a decent selection of dark drinks. Most have the usual bar staples and that's about it. The two I listed above have a nice selection though.

The Ravenous Pig does a separate bar area first come-first serve seating setup where you can eat. They have probably 6-8 tables in that bar area, as well as bar seating. May not be ideal for V-day though as there's no real order and you have to snipe the table when possible. Cask and Larder and Ceviche are both good choices as well. I'd stay away from the ice bar idea. It's basically a huge freezer (and looks like one too) with a bar on one end. They don't let you stay in there very long and they only serve Pinnacle Vodka, which I'm not a fan of at all. It'll cost you another $10 for their specialty jackets as well. All said, that's $75 you could spend elsewhere and have a much better time. Houston's is also always a good staple up there.

The Ravenous Pig is a great place, there are tons of other eclectic resturants in the Winter Park area off of Park Ave to check out.
