Underground Unattached is a Curated Dating Experience and UU. We're branding the term "Reputation Dating." We've produced ten dating experiences in New York City and recently expanded to our second market, Los Angeles.
We’re filling a void between the dating apps (less labor) and the private matchmakers (more cost efficient), by gathering people to meet offline before they can get online.
For our experiences we curate an even number of men and women to gather at private locations for three-hour experiences.
