Unsure of your plans for Valentine’s Day?  Take our one-question quiz below to find the perfect activity for your unique situation!

Are you:

A.  Madly in love / lust / both
B.  Trying to keep the sparks alive
C.  Dating someone new; it’s a little awkward
D.  Single and ready to mingle
E.  Single and definitely not ready to mingle

If you answered:

A.  The romantic atmosphere and Polaroid photo keepsake at The Candle Lab will make both you and your date dizzy with love.
B.  Hire a babysitter, then take your date to The Candle Lab.  Your date will appreciate the effort it took (very little) to plan a unique Valentine’s Day evening, and when you light your candles at home you’ll rekindle your love for one another.
C.  Valentine’s Day can be stressful when you’re in a new relationship.  You don’t want to come on too strong (diamond earrings), but if you don’t plan anything you might find yourself single again before the night is over.  The Candle Lab is the perfect solution.
D.  Gather your single friends for Galentine’s Day at The Candle Lab!  Start by pouring candles and drinking sparkling wine, then end with dancing at a nightclub
E.  Ask your sister / mother / best friend / co-worker to join you at The Candle Lab, eat all the chocolates, then grab dinner and spend the entire time re-hashing why you and your ex broke up.  

Now that you’ve found the perfect way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, read below for all the details!  Feel free to reach out to hello@thecandlelab.com with any questions.  We can’t wait to celebrate with you, no matter your relationship status!  

Valentine's Day at The Candle Lab

Thursday, Friday, and Saturday February 14-16
4-8 PM all days
All locations
$49/couple, $25/single
Walk-ins only (no reservations)

Includes the following:

  • One pour-your-own custom-scented soy candle per person, in your choice of premium 8 oz jar (~10 options available to match your unique style)
  • A glass of sparkling wine for each person to enjoy while pouring.
  • Premium chocolate to indulge your sweet tooth.
  • A commemorative polaroid photo capturing your magical evening.
  • A romantic ambiance created by unscented candlelight
  • Free delivery to your romantic local dinner spot of choice within walking distance.  The candles take about 90 minutes to cool before they are ready to take home, and once they are ready we will hand-deliver them just as your meal is ending.  Now that’s love!


  1.  We do not take reservations for these evenings.  Simply stop in anytime between 4-8 PM.
  2.  Candles poured by 7:30 PM will be delivered to the restaurant that evening (or available for pick up).  Because the candles take 90 minutes to set, candles poured after 7:30 PM can be picked up in-store another day (no rush!).  
  3.  Plan on ~30-45 minutes from the time you walk in the door to the time you are leaving for your dinner (could be more or less depending on how busy the store is).

Hi there,

I saw on another info tab this event was running 4-7 not 4-8, which one is accurate?

Thank you!
