Straight Singles Night — Wed 16th of May 2012

Our next straight sin­gles night is on Wed 16th of May from 7pm — 10pm. Sin­gles Night at Alexan­der Bar works by pro­vid­ing a com­fort­able styl­ish set­ting and a few tricks to help make flirt­ing fun. Each par­tic­i­pat­ing sin­gle wears a num­ber. This num­ber gets used to for send­ing & receiv­ing anony­mous telegrams: sent by SMS, printed at the till and deliv­ered by our staff. It’s also pos­si­ble to flirt via our  antique tele­phone sys­tem which lets you call other tables. You’re encour­aged to don any sort of vin­tage acces­sory — per­haps some white gloves, a bowtie, sus­penders, a brooch or a bowler hat.

To par­tic­i­pate in the sin­gles night please RSVP with your name to or call us on 021.300.1088. If you’re com­ing in a group please email us with all the names of the peo­ple attend­ing in your group. This is so we can try ensure an even dis­tri­b­u­tion of men & women.

The par­tic­i­pa­tion fee is R50 which includes a free Cucum­ber & Elder­flower Mar­tini. Com­pli­men­tary nib­bles will be served and if you get a bit more peck­ish you can order from our menu of light meals, sal­ads and cheese & char­cu­terie boards until midnight.

Please tell your les­bian & gay brothers/sisters/friends/aunties that we’re host­ing a queer ver­sion of this event the fol­low­ing night Thurs­day 17th of May from 7pm — 10pm.
