Attraction Lab returns to New York on Sunday, 29 April 2018. Join us at Caveat, NYC’s newest venue for ‘intellectual nightlife’, for a fun and playful evening of sensual experiments that deconstruct that romantic *spark*. Tickets now available.

Throw on blindfolds and unlock the science of attraction through a series of interactive rounds. We’ll explore 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. No matter where you are in your journey of love, this playful evening will have something for you to experience, enjoy, and discover.

NEW FORMAT: Singles looking to meet others will be seated in specific sections where they will switch partners for each round. Other attendees may be seated with friends or partners for the duration of the evening.

Is this like Guerilla Science’s Sensory Speed Dating event?
This event is not a speed dating event. It expands on Guerilla Science’s popular Sensory Speed Dating series, focusing more on self-discovery and what science knows about how attraction works. During the event, individuals seated in the “Singles” section will be switching partners for every experiment round. We will not be pairing people up after the show (but you’re more than welcome to keep the conversation going with your new acquaintances).

If I come with my partner or friends, will we be split up?
Not unless you choose to. There will be two seating areas. One for people who experience each round with a new partner. One for partners and friends who only want to interact with the people they came with. If you would like to separate from your group during the interactive segments, please purchase a “Singles” ticket. If you would like to remain with your group, please purchase a “Group” ticket together.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of the event, we discourage bringing big backpacks or bags. Make sure to keep valuables on you throughout the entire evening. There will be hangers to place your coats by the entrance. If you choose a “Singles” ticket, you will be shifting around the room, sometimes blindfolded, so please keep this in mind.
