Our most popular night of the year is back. With springtime in the air, it’s time to get up close and personal as Auckland’s most talked-about singles event returns for 2022! Dust off your top-notch talking points (or conversational curtain-raisers) and your witty repartees. Could there be a better place to meet someone special? Start the night with drinks and a DJ spinning just the right tunes in Te Ao Mārama, our stunning South Atrium. Our helpful “icebreaking” hosts will be on hand to get the conversation flowing. Be examined (from a distance) by the Love Doctor and take your prescription to our Apothecary for an aphrodisiac delight or, more likely, some tall tales. Hit it off with someone? If things are looking promising, take a stroll through our beautifully lit galleries. There will be plenty to chat about while tackling our romantically-themed scavenger hunt. This time we’re featuring a special speed dating activity in our Kai room surrounded by images of the birds and the bees (and other species)! Our hosts will put you in pairs and you’ll have a short 5 minutes to get to know each other just a little – take the pressure off by completing fun challenges while you chat. And yes, it’s returning once more! You can register for the chance to be a contestant in our popular Blind Date game show when you purchase your ticket. We’ll be in touch with more info closer to the date, but if it’s not your scene, you can always opt out. And this time there’ll be audience questions for spot prizes so anyone can be a winner. So whatever your preference, ditch the dating app and join us for fun, flirting and who knows what else. To ensure a good mix on the night, please purchase a ticket that honestly reflects your gender identity. (I’m looking at you, ladies. Please don’t purchase other gender tickets if females are sold out.) Better make your move – last time tickets sold out fast!

Delete the apps – this is the resurgence of face to face dating in Christchurch!


Are you aged between 40 and 50 and over online dating? Sick of the shallowness and lack of quality connection? You’re not alone and we’re about to prove it to you!


The prospect of wasting precious evenings on a dud date is unattractive in our busy lives – so our concept is simple: fit 20 into one night.

Enter: 20 First Dates


HOW IT WORKS:

6.50pm: 20 single, ready to mingle women will arrive at Kaiser Brew Bar between 6.50pm and 7.05pm and receive two drink tokens on arrival, then they’ll be seated up on the upper level of Kaiser and given time to chat and get excited.

7.15pm: The men will arrive and also receive drink tokens (cue: liquid courage!), then they’ll be taken upstairs and seated opposite their first date of the evening, then the event will begin!


Each couple will have a 3 minute time slot to get to know one another before the organiser rings a bell indicating it’s time to move to the next seat.

After the first 10 meet and greets are completed we will have a 15 minute drinks break (phew!) followed by the final 10 dates.

From there, you’ll mark your date card with anyone you wish to pursue a connection with and if they’ve ticked you also, we’ll text you their number (the beginning of a few love stories, surely!)

It’s fun, it’s easy and will save you hours of swiping!

COST:


Tickets are $30 pp which include entry and 2x drink tokens. They can be purchased via Eventfinda.

Speed Dating is for singles looking outside the square to meet potential partners. The events take place in a private function room or exclusive venue. At each event, you will meet around 10 people of the opposite sex in your age group.The hardest thing about speed dating is making it through the door. Once you’ve had a drink and have met a few of the other Speed Daters, you will feel more relaxed.During the date, you will have seven minutes to talk to each person. The women stay seated and the men move from one table to the other until you have met everyone. You then decide if you want to meet your Speed Dates again. If the feeling is mutual, we will email you each other’s contact details. But if you don’t hit it off, it’s only seven minutes out of your life!Speed dating does not have to be stressful or frightening; you will be pleasantly surprised at how fun and relaxing it really is.
