Our most popular night of the year is back. It's Valentine's Day and summer romance 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!
Please note we will be requiring valid proof of vaccination or a medical exemption for all attendees.
