OpenTable and Hinge teamed up to help singles plan the perfect date night

Hinge and OpenTable (restaurant-reservation service ) has teamed up to facilitate the process of searching for the best first date spot.

The event is called ‘Date Night Guide’ where tips about how to find the best eatery are provided for the newly matched pairs, based on the answers they gave to five simple questions.

Once the spot is booked, it can be shared with the partner so both of them know when and where to meet.

Hinge’s CMO Nathan Roth explained in a statement: “We recently uncovered that most Hinge members spend over an hour trying to find the perfect date spot and are hungry for recommendations. Our goal at Hinge is to help our members get off the app and out on a great date. With Date Night Matchmaker, we hope to help even more members plan a date they’ll never forget.”
