As the keeper of Valentine’s Day, February is considered the month of romance.  The Ritz-Carlton, St. Louis is celebrating this notion by setting the stage for couples to create their own romantic memories throughout February with “Piano Love Notes” every Thursday in The Lobby Lounge.

“Piano Love Notes” will be held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. – February 6, 13, 20, and 27 - and will feature love-themed live music and one-of-a-kind martinis accented with whispers of chocolate.

Renowned for its 200 martinis, The Lobby Lounge in the Clayton luxury hotel has created three new romantic martinis that will be at the heart of “Piano Love Notes:”
