Ottawa Venues

Ottawa’s amazing restaurants, bars and pubs are the perfect venues for Secret RSVP events. We are picky with where we host our events because we strive for venues with the right balance of having a soiree experience and being able to actually enjoy conversations, while keeping things fun, relaxed and classy. (You have to hear someone to get to know someone!) 

At times, we may not reveal our event venues on the event page openly. Only event ticket holders will have access to such exclusive information when their tickets are confirmed upon purchase. This is to prevent people from *crashing* our parties (yes – it has happened before because tickets are limited, and it allows us to maintain an even gender ratio to optimize live matching).

You can always expect Secret RSVP events to be hosted in the most trendy and publicly accessible parts of downtown Ottawa. By the way, we’re always on the lookout for new venues and locations, so if you have suggestions or would love to partner with us, we are all ears.

Ottawa Singles Events FAQ

Our events are unique in every city we host in. If your question isn’t answered here, visit our event support FAQ page.

The capital of Canada, Ottawa is known for being exceptionally clean and green. Famous for its luscious green trees, landmark parks, rivers and hills, the nation’s capital is a popular destination for music festivals, bilingualism, and of course, the world’s largest outdoor ice-skating rink. 

If you’re looking for the best places to meet Ottawa singles, check out the Ottawa Art Gallery or the Ottawa School of Art, where you will find singles who love appreciate the arts. The Gatineau Park and Rideau Canal are open all-season activities including skating, snow-shoeing, walking or cycling for singles who love nature and a little more adventure. Our personal favorite is the Byward Market – the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon browsing and supporting local producers.

Ottawa’s nightlife comes alive along Ottawa’s downtown riddled with museums, theatres, boutiques, restaurants, pubs and bars – including Wellington Street, Rideau Street, Sussex Drive, and Elgin Street.  With Ottawa’s singles raring to go out and socialize in real life (IRL), it’s time to delete your online dating app. Secret RSVP is a brand new way to mingle with other awesome, fun-loving and adventurous singles like you!

Secret RSVP is a unique way for Ottawa singles to meet new people and connect for genuine relationships. Our events are specially designed for you to meet others in a relaxed and casual setting with low pressure.

In a live event, usually with between 35 to 50 singles, you can simply use the Secret RSVP app to secretly choose whom you’re interested to meet in smaller intimate groups for fun ice-breaker games and activities! No one will know whom you’re interested to learn more about. You can just focus on being yourself and showing others your shining personality – you know, the one that makes you attractive as a person in real life! Learn more about how Secret RSVP is different (and in our opinion, way better!) than online dating, speed dating, or singles mixers.

We designed Secret RSVP as an alternative to speed dating. While some have described Secret RSVP as “online dating in reverse”, or “speed dating in groups”, Secret RSVP is really the world’s 1st live-matched events! We’ve taken the best of the most popular ways singles meet, removed the worst parts, and added our secret sauce! While some people may enjoy speed dating as a method for meeting new people, we know it’s not for everyone and definitely not for us!

There are many Ottawa speed dating events and singles mixers readily available so if that’s something you enjoy, then we won’t stand in your way. But, if you’d rather do something unique, fun, modern and more interesting then you’ve come to the right place! Learn more about how Secret RSVP is different (and in our opinion, way better!) than online dating, speed dating, or singles mixers.

Our live-matched dating nights in Ottawa have a limit on specific ages, however, we do allow a 1 – 2-year leeway outside these ranges. So if you’re outside this age range, please let us know your interest by joining our club list for future events in your age group.

The best way to know what new things we have planned is to get on our Secret RSVP Club list. We’ll notify you as soon as tickets are available for any of our upcoming Ottawa singles events!

We’ve actually been featured in quite a few places which you can read on our about page.
