1) Aperidates

A more informal version of the speed date , the format in which you meet new people in rotation and in a few minutes. If in the original version it is the women who sit at the table and the man who turns around, in the aperidate the formation of the couple is in the hands of fate between a cocktail and a round at the buffet.

As in the game of the chair, all the participants – whether men or women – go around the tables. At the sound of a bell they have to sit down two by two, in completely random order. Couples have 5 minutes to get to know each other before getting up and trying their luck again.

2) Find the other half

In organizing singles events, hunting for your other half is one of the most fun and engaging . Upon entering your restaurant, each person is asked a series of questions to find out their tastes and affinities.

Once the test is done, the person is given a sticker with a halved design, such as an apple cut in half. The person then has to search through the crowd for their other half to complete themselves. You can vary the game by using the names of the most famous couples in history, such as Romeo and Juliet or Rose and Jack from Titanic. There are many references and the expense for this activity is low: all you need is adhesive labels and an indelible marker.

3) Couple karaoke, extraction

The best way to break the ice on a first date is karaoke, even when you're stoned. For San Faustino, organize a draw karaoke for couples , a perfect solution for entertaining singles and for creating a festive atmosphere in your venue.

People entering the bar leave their names, which are entered into a pairing draw box. The couples will have to give their best: a jury made up of the public in the club decrees the best one, which will receive a recognition prize. Obviously the songs will all be about love, to ignite the spark at the end of the duet.

In San Faustino, bars and clubs can offer a lot to those who want to celebrate the evening in joy, meeting new people.
