OTTAWA – IT’S COCKTAIL HOUR! Video Speed Dating
It’s Cocktail Hour! We’re bringing people together for a fun virtual date night filled with new connections, good vibes and lots of laughter.
Mix up your favourite drink, set the mood with candles and music (check out our recommended playlist) and let us take care of the rest. Cheers to good times and wonderful people!
Make the most of this digital experience with our curated recommendations:
The ‘Summer Nights’ playlist on Spotify is ideal for this event! Turn up the tunes before the event to get into a date night vibe and then set the volume to low while you speed date. Click here to access the playlist directly. Spotify app required.
Introducing the “Kombucha Crasher”! The perfect beverage for warm weather with the right combination of fizz and flavour. Not to mention, less guilt when using kombucha vs. other sugar-filled mixers. Click here for the recipe!
“Classy-Summer-Casual” – whatever that means to you!
You might be thinking… “I’m attending from home, so I don’t need to dress up.” but it’s just the opposite! We are delivering Date Night right to your doorstep and you should still get excited and do your usual ‘Date Night’ rituals. Be comfortable of course, but aim to look your best.
People can tell when you’ve made an effort and, when it comes to dating, that’s important. Looking your best will always result in more and/or better matches. Remember, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.
