IRL FRIDAYS, Hong Kong’s Newest Dating Event, Opens at Behind Bars on Oct. 7 to Cure Your Romance Woes
September 29, 2022
Suffering from Tinder fatigue? Getting tired of constantly swiping on dating apps? Wish there was a way to meet people IRL and catch a vibe?
With this year marking a decade since Tinder came into our lives, Hong Kong’s newest schmoozing and boozing party for singles, IRL FRIDAYS, is set to kick off Oct. 7 at 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM at Tai Kwun’s Behind Bars in Central to help you find your next hunny.
In partnership with JIA Group, IRL FRIDAYS is designed to make your IRL dating process seamless, fun, and easy again, with a focus on expanding your dating pool, growing your social circle, and meeting new friends in our crazy city.
Entrance is HK$100 and includes one class of Mumm Champagne as you practice how to date in real-life after becoming reliant on the magic of Tinder, Bumble, Hinge and many more, and undergo “dating-app makeovers” with on-site photographers and copywriters making you look beautiful online, conversational icebreakers, and interactive games.
Beyond the IRL FRIDAYS event, Behind Bars is hosting an online component to the Tai Kwun event aimed at helping Hong Kongers find a match they lost contact to or unable to exchange social details with.
Those eager to recover that chance at connecting are invited to DM @behindbars.hkg on Instagram with their tale of missed connection. Two stories will be posted on the page every week in hope of making match magic with Behind Bars’ #HKMissedConnections campaign.
IRL FRIDAYS kicks off Oct. 7 and will continue on the first Friday of each month at Behind Bars in Tai Kwun. Tickets are available to purchase onsite with walk-ins welcome.
Head over to our Instagram page to enter into The Beat Asia’s giveaway with Behind Bars for a chance to win one of the 10 tickets available for the Oct. 7 event.
