Lock and Key Party at the Greatest Bar

At: The Greatest Bar, 262 Friend St., Boston. Saturday, 9 p.m. Cover: $10 at the door. 21+. 617-335-5582,

The deal: Any singles looking for the one with the key to their heart might have luck at The Greatest Bar’s fifth annual Lock and Key Party, which comes just in time for Valentine’s Day. Men will get keys and ladies will get locks at the door of this event, and everyone is encouraged to find their match before the night ends. “Basically, if you’re single, come,” said Sunny Desai of Boston VIP List, promoter of the event. “It’s a theme party that will attract another 150 guests on top of [The Greatest Bar’s] regular 400-plus Saturday crowd.”

Who goes there: While the theme party will attract a lot of singles, couples and those not interested in matchmaking shouldn’t avoid the event. The Greatest Bar’s fun regular Saturday crowd will be there, too.

The dress: Casual, but “no hats, no boots, and no oversize clothing,” said Desai.

The DJ: Boston’s DJ Jinx.

The tip: Take the matchmaking seriously and watch the clock. The first three couples to find their match will receive cash prizes and gift cards.
