The game where you win each other.
Closer is a card game, but it’s faaaar from the competition we’re so programmed to stretch for nowadays, against each other. This is a game that’s played with and for each other.
The grand prize? Quality candid connection—and a colorful stamp on your passport for “going there” – that place behind closed doors that we shy away from owning or venting, or laughing, or laugh-crying, or—hey—crying about. It’s all healthy. And human.
To create a platform, both in print and digital, that brings people together to share vulnerable, “I don’t think I’ve ever told anyone this before”, nervous-then-relieved personal stories about love, curiosity, joy, pet peeves, guilty pleasures, sad times, and our good ol’ frenemy: failure.
There’s an app for that.
“Cool, but who carries a box of cards with them at all times?” Fair. So we made an app to open up with absolutely anyone, absolutely anywhere.
Listen Bar, a booze-free bar in NYC, first opened its doors as a 5-day proof-of-concept, taking over an empty bar space in South Williamsburg. Its roaring success proved the time was right! In November, Listen Bar celebrated its first-party on tour – a night for sharing secrets, drama and laughter. Let the stories begin 💫
Listen Bar invited local comedians, authors, public speakers to give their juiciest tales of modern dating. With every alcohol-free drink purchase, you will get a Closer Card.
