Have some questions? We hopefully have some answers.

What is recess?

recess is a social app designed for genuine connections beyond the screen. Embrace the charm of going outside and meeting people the “old-fashioned way”, but with a modern twist. You’ll only be able to sign up for our app by going outside, to a recess event.

What events are considered “recess events”?

We’re partnering with event organizers in your city to bring you recess every week, to help you find friends that you can get to know both online and offline.

Requirements for a recess event:

Rule #1: cannot solely be a networking event

Rule #2: cannot solely be a dance party or “meet at a bar” event

Rule #3: must be centered around a niche attraction or theme

Rule #4: work/career cannot be the main topic of discussion

Rule #5: must be introvert friendly (hence Rules #1-4)
