Attraction Lab returned to New York on Sunday 29 April 2018. Taking place at Caveat, NYC’s newest venue for ‘intellectual nightlife’, we hosted a fun and playful evening of sensual experiments that deconstructed that romantic spark.

Guests threw on blindfolds and unlocked the science of attraction through a series of interactive rounds. Together, they explored how sight, touch, taste, smell and movement influence romantic desires, and how you can spice up date night with a new friend or your significant other. This playful evening had something for everyone to experience, enjoy and discover – whether single or not.

While not a speed dating event, Attraction Lab expanded on Guerilla Science’s popular Sensory Speed Dating series – this time focusing more on self-discovery and what science knows about how attraction works. During the experience, individuals seated in the “Singles” section had the opportunity to switch partners for every round.
