SOLO on Oaxen Slip reaches even more solo eaters

By on January 14, 2019

In the autumn of 2018, OAXEN SOLO has attracted guests to Oaxen Slip on Fridays with a table reserved for those who for some reason want or need to go out and eat without company. Now SOLO also opens on Wednesdays to give more opportunity to experience what happens when you eat dinner with people you do not know.

“We launched SOLO among other things to change the view of eating alone.” Explains Agneta Green, one of the founders and the owners of Oaxen Krog and Slip. “During the autumn, we have also seen that SOLO is needed and eating alone is a growing trend.”

Joachim Sundqvist at Umeå University who works with the research project “Eating out – a study of visitors’ activities related to food and meals.” confirms Agneta’s picture:
“When it comes to eating out and doing it alone, many experience it as a problem, mainly when the restaurants do not have the niche here in Sweden, there is no competence to take care of those who eat alone.”

OAXEN SOLO offers all solo eaters a context where solo is the norm. All you have to do is book your place, company and menu will be a surprise. SOLO is a so-called “sharing meal” that serves as a family dinner where you share the whole table. There is only one requirement, you have to come alone – no dates, no families with children or friends.

Reactions during the autumn have been exclusively positive and all guests have stated that they have been satisfied with the evening. One guest commented on his visit as follows: “This was one of the best dining experiences I have had, as a solo diner.” Cheers! “.
