The Edmonton singles scene

The most northerly of the North-American cities, Edmonton provides its residents with plenty of opportunities to enjoy themselves. Not only is ‘Festival City’ home to a year-round calendar great events, its nearness to the North Saskatchewan River means that it borders one of Canada’s most exciting playgrounds. It should come as no surprise then that Edmonton is full of interesting, dynamic people who wish to make the most out of their city. What may be surprising, however, is just how many of these are part of the Edmonton singles scene – in fact, 43% of residents are without a long-term partner.1

Year-round entertainment

There’s a good chance that meeting up for a coffee may be the perfect first date. In warm weather you can sit at an outdoor table, chatting and watching the world go by; in winter there is coziness of indoor sofas and hot drinks to look forward to. No wonder our members have voted the coffee date as their favourite way to get to know someone!2

For Edmonton singles, there are a number of great coffee spots to choose from, but a clear stand-out is Iconoclast Koffiehuis, an amazing space with a focus on the rituals of wonderful coffee, delicious food and thriving conversation – in other words, perfect date conditions!
