INFO FOR RESTAURANTS
THE DATEVINE brings like-minded people to local restaurants for a night of great food, great fun and great conversation. Party numbers range from 8-20+, and because diners can bring their friends along, there is a completely relaxed atmosphere at the table.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
1. THE DATEVINE team organise a dinner party with a restaurant for between 8-20+ people. All our events include either a 2-course set menu or banquet menu designed by the restaurant.
2. THE DATEVINE invites singles to buy tickets to the event. These tickets will cover the cost of the meal and our admin fees. Approximately $40-$100 per person, depending on the restaurant.
3. THE DATEVINE organises all the guests in the lead up to the event, and provides the restaurant with a guest list and pre-payment for the food.
4. On the night of the event the restaurant hosts the guests and serves the set menu, like any other table. Our diners will pay for drinks and any service fees on the night, directly to the restaurant.
5. After the event THE DATEVINE team will follow up with the guests and the restaurant to get any feedback and make another group booking.
BENEFITS FOR RESTAURANTS
Restaurants can take group bookings with THE DATEVINE during off peak times, as a way to fill the restaurant during quiet nights of the week. (Mid-week evenings are usually the best date nights)
Hosting DATEVINE events exposes restaurants to new, local clientele, increasing the likelihood of returning customers and word of mouth publicity.
We will promote restaurants on THE DATEVINE social media platforms and on the Eventbrite ticketing website in the lead up to the events.
A DATEVINE dinner is easy to host for restaurant staff given there is a set menu already paid for.
