The inspiration behind PlayDate was to provide an alternative to the typical night out. We wanted a casual but exciting environment filled with a diverse group of people who want to listen to great music, enjoy food & drinks, and have fun
all at the same time. Our goal is to create new and exciting atmospheres while redefining the landscape of nightlife.

I haven't had THIS much fun in a long time!
I don't do clubs much, so PlayDate is perfect!
PlayDateTM was founded in 2005 in Atlanta, GA by Imari Havard.
It was introduced as a "solution" to the lack of creative entertainment options for adults. Later, with business partner Ryan Hill,
the concept was launched in over 30+ cities around the country.
PlayDate has also been featured at large National events
and conventions (Essence Festival, Tom Joyner Cruise, NBMBAA), partnered with
blue-chip clients (Ford, McDonald's, Virgin), and even hosts an annual trip
