Fall in Love before Valentine’s Day – with a little help of the Exchange & Alibi

The winter is getting cold – warm up with love (or something like it) at The Exchange.

Minneapolis is made for lovers. Our beautiful scenery, booming cultural scene, and hot nightlife make Minnesota’s largest city a perfect place to find your soul mate. But let’s be serious, finding love is HARD. With Valentine’s Day on its way, it’s hard not to be aware of your single status. We swipe all day on those dating apps, yet we haven’t fallen in love yet. So what gives? You aren’t the only one wondering why love isn’t being found online.

One dating app exec shares: “Say it takes 10 swipes for a match, 2 matches for an opening line, 3 opening lines for a response, 5 responses for a flowing conversation, 5 flowing conversations for a date, and 5 dates for a second date. That’s a user browsing 7,500 profiles before connecting with someone ‘meaningfully.'” UGH.

What does work? Going out and meeting real people!

If you really want to find love and February 14 is weighing on your mind, we’ve got plenty of events for all walks of life at The Exchange. Minneapolis nightlife wants you to fall in love.

So…What’s your vibe?

TC Presents | Night at the Dojo

January 31, you will find the Slam Academy on our stage, putting our state of the art FUNKTION-ONE sound system to good use! This is an 18+ show that features incredible fresh talent to the Minneapolis music scene. We are hosting Slam Academy for the last amplitude of January! Come check out a showcase of local producers and see what Slam is all about! We’ve got BAARD (with his future beats), MikeRat (the sneaky glitch rat), NuAge Knight (Deep Neo-Soul vibe), and Dumpling (coming through with the bangers).  Get your tickets for the 9 pm show and prepare yourself for a good time meeting singles with similar tastes in music and atmosphere as you. Do you know what’s better than Valentine conversation hearts? Genuinely liking good live music and realizing the cutie next to you does too.

Trilogy at the Exchange

February 1, get ready to invade downtown Minneapolis for the Lunar New Year when Trilogy kicks off your weekend! You’ve got to love Trilogy as they go hard and always do it big! Known for their amazing DJs and hot go-go dancers, we’ve heard people say that Fridays with Trilogy at the Exchange is hands-down the best party in town, especially if you want a VIP experience. New bottle service deals listed are $100 off the first bottle of Hennessy, Grey Goose or Patron + 5 free entries OR $350 for two bottles of Hennessy, Grey Goose or Patron + 10 free entries. We highly recommend that you pre-book VIP tables in advance to receive our specials. Try not to wait until the last minute because they will definitely sell out quick!

Sold Out Saturdays

If you live your best life on the dance floor where a DJ spins favorite tunes to get you weird, Sold Out Saturdays features Minneapolis nightlife’s most sought-after DJs dropping the beat after 10 pm at The Exchange. You can hit up the Sold Out Saturdays on February 2, February 9, and February 16. Not only do you get your choice of prime DJ mixes (from the likes of DJ Serafin, DJ Chachi, Rick Wonder, and more), you will meet all kinds of fellow party-lovers on the dance floor as the hottest singles in the Twin Cities converge to make some heat at The Exchange.  

 

Finally, some words of wisdom before Valentine’s day…

If you really do want to find someone to connect and make memories with, we have a few straightforward words of advice as you navigate dating in the greatest city in the United States. (We are dead serious about Minneapolis.)

  • Be yourself—this is an easy one.
  • Be truthful from the get-go, because it almost always leads to trouble later.
  • Be open. Try not to shut someone out the minute that you find one annoying habit or realize you have less in common than you initially thought.
  • Be strong. Dating can be a major challenge, but finding love is definitely worth it.
  • Trust your gut. In a battle between the head and the heart, it can be hard to determine the best moves to make when dating. Your gut will always lead you down the path that makes the most sense for you at the time.
  • Have fun. Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans, right? Enjoy your life! Go out there and meet people!
