Possibly the best singles party held annually on Valentine’s Day, Lucha Loco’s Hearts Go Loco fiesta for singles is back this year in collaboration with Hedonist (a popular adult toy company) to bring you three hours of non-stop entertainment and fun.
Show up in your finest red or black outfits and groove to Latin-inspired music by DJ Abdelux from Black Tropik while getting your love fortune read by a mystery guest tarot card reader! What’s more, don’t be shy and head over to the pleasure pop-up by Hedonist! Or take a spin on the “Wheel of Naughty” for a game of dare. Of course, not forgetting the star of the party — the Bash-Your-Ex piñata where you’ll get to bring along a photo of your wretched ex and stick it on the piñata before taking a much-deserved swing.
Event Details: Tuesday, 14 February, 8 PM – 11 PM
Address: Lucha Loco, 15 Duxton Hill, Singapore 089598

Fresh out of a toxic relationship or stuck with a case of unrequited love? Make a trip down to The Fragment Room and vent your frustration (and maybe even some anger) by whacking away at a variety of satisfyingly smashable objects in their iconic rage room.
The establishment offers various packages and add-ons that cater from a single “smasher” to groups of up to six and above. So why not grab a like-minded friend to join in on the destructive fun? Fully protective smashing gear such as helmets with visors, cut-proof gloves, rentable safety boots, and freshly washed white coveralls will be provided so you can smash to your heart’s content without fear of getting hurt or dirtied. As it says on their webpage, “Instant. Gratification.”

If smashing items in The Fragment Room isn’t enough to satisfy your inner rage cage, consider visiting Axe Factor at 200 Turf Club Road. Axe Factor introduces visitors to the competitive sport of axe throwing where you’ll get to experience hurling actual axes onto a target board approximately 4.2 metres away!
Axe throwing is the perfect fun activity to relieve any worries that may be weighing on your mind. Having trouble getting over an ex? Why not axe your ex? FYI we mean by imagining his/her face on the target board. 👀 That being said, axe throwing isn’t only leisurely, but is also a new sport on the rise. So, who knows? You just might have found your new hobby.
Opening Hours: Tuesdays to Sundays, 12 PM – 10 PM
Address: 200 Turf Club Rd, #01-32A/B &34A/B, Singapore 287994
