Update: Couples Dinners are not yet scheduled for 2018, check back for future details

The Dinner Party Project is best known for their intimate dinners, which unite eight randomly selected strangers around the dinner table for thoughtful conversation, delicious food, and drinks. Now they’ve opened up that experience to couples, too, with monthly couples dinners.

Held on the last Sunday of each month, couples dinners are a unique way to connect with other couples in Orlando. Unlike The Dinner Party Project's invitation-only dinners, which require you to sign up online to get your name entered in the lottery drawing for upcoming dinners, couples dinners allow you to reserve a space in advance so you and your partner can enjoy the experience together. No waiting required!

Dinners begin at 6:30pm at The Balcony in downtown Orlando. During the evening, you and your partner will gather around the table with four other couples for an intimate evening of conversation, cocktails, and a fabulous meal. You're bound to connect with like-minded couples and forge new friendships for future double dates.

Upcoming dates

  • July 23, 2017
  • August 27, 2017
  • September 24, 2017

Email [email protected] to reserve your space for an upcoming date. When paying for your dinner, you select what you’d like to pay from the sliding scale of $50-$90 per person.

Other upcoming events

In addition to couples dinners, The Dinner Party Project and local artist LeAnn Siefferman have launched a new dinner series called Making Conversations. Each of the five remaining dinners focuses on creating a dialogue around important issues, and handmade dinnerware inspired by the evening’s topic will spark and stimulate conversation. Homelessness, A Changing Climate, and Race & Privilege are just a few upcoming topics. The Dinner Party Project will donate $35 per ticket to a local charity.
