The Whole Hog

Harvard Business Review described Wok+Wine as a “global experiment in social chemistry”. Someone else described the experience as a “3 hour digital vacation”. Your hands are covered in the world’s most delicious prawn sauce so you are not inclined to reach for your smartphone every five minutes. The experience has also been described as a “no reason party”. Most people join us driven by their innate curiosity. There is no agenda or certain type of person who attends. The way we see it, if you’re willing to show up to a unique location with 40 other curious, open-minded strangers to stand at a long communal table covered in banana leaves to peel and eat jumbo prawns with your hands then you’re more than welcome! We’d love to meet you.

Regardless of how you describe it, Wok+Wine is about breaking out of our social echo chambers and free of the web’s predictive algorithms to “meet the people you didn’t know you were looking for”. We’ve so far helped thousands of people across the world to make new and interesting connections and we’re pretty sure we’ll do the same for you.
