Shower your best friend with love and take her out to eat because food is love. Or casually send this to your best friends for a subtle hint if your birthday is coming up. All you need to add are those classic gold number balloons we see at every birthday bash.
Even if you or your friends don't have a birthday coming up, there's no need for an excuse to have a special night out.
You'll be the best BFF there ever was by making her feel special at these lovely spots. Bonus points because you'll score her some sick Instas.
These places are all unique and have a different vibe and atmosphere, so she is sure to like something on this list. Take your main girl out on her special day to these places:
1. Roof Garten // 670 Smithe Street
