Success Stories πŸ’‘

Many have already found love ❀️

β€œWhen I went to my first speed dating event, I had zero expectations

– less than zero actually.
But yup, when I walked into that bar, I saw him and went all nervous.
I wouldn’t say our first conversation was scintillating. I don’t even remember what small talk we made – maybe our jobs.
At the end of the event, I saw him sitting alone and asked whether I could sit next to him. He said he wanted to see me again and I said the same.
We are now happily and exclusively together. If I have any advice to give anyone, it would be to give speed dating a try. I was lucky to have found my person the first time around. But I had been online dating for a year with no success.

You may not find someone the first time or the 10th time, but at least these guys take the trouble to show up and put their best foot forward. They are making the effort which is more than I can say for some people on online dating sites – and that’s not even counting the sleazeballs.
– a happy attendee”

“I would like to let you know that last month,

I attended one of your speed dating nights in Hardware Lane and met the most beautiful girl. We connected and you sent our numbers to us.
We met up again the next day and have been on many dates and have spoken every day, for hours It’s been 6 weeks + and going strong.
Just wanted to let you know of one of your success stories. The future looks bright.
We recommend your speed dating nights to every single person we speak to. It was so much fun. Thank you.”

β€œI just wanted to let you know…

That I won’t been attending your next event. I had already purchased the ticket earlier… I attended the last event and had a wonderful time… after I worked up the courage to actually walk in…
I was so nervous and almost didn’t go in but I am really glad I did I have made a connection with a great guy and am looking forward to pursuing that and seeing how we go.

So thank you for all the effort in putting these events together… don’t worry about giving me a refund on the ticket, maybe you can give that to someone that rocks up on the night without a ticket as I know how hard They are to get. thanks so much again.”

Event Details

Welcome to the world of speed dating for Brisbane’s vibrant 29-47 year old crowd, affectionately known as the “Valley Vixens and Hipsters”! If you’re single in Fortitude Valley, you know the struggle of navigating the bustling nightlife scene while searching for that special someone. Gone are the days of swiping endlessly on dating apps like Tinder or Bumble – it’s time to experience real connections at Hey Chica!, the hottest Latin-inspired bar at 14/315 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley QLD 4006.Β 

Easily accessible by public transport, hop on the 196 bus or take a short stroll from Fortitude Valley train station. For the perfect outfit to impress, swing by Moss & Spy in nearby James Street for a chic ensemble. You’ll be mingling with singles not just from the Valley, but also from trendy New Farm and eclectic West End, creating a diverse mix of potential matches.

How It Works

As you arrive at the venue, you’ll be greeted by our friendly hosts who’ll provide your name card and guide you through scanning the QR code for our cutting-edge Matching App 4.0. This app lets you see all attendees and make your selections in real-time. After some initial mingling at the bar, ladies take their seats while gents rotate every 5 minutes, giving you 12 mini-dates throughout the evening.Β 

Don’t worry if you’re feeling nervous – we’ve got ice breaker games and conversation cards to keep things flowing smoothly. With a balanced ratio of 20 men and 20 women, you’re guaranteed equal opportunities to connect. Many attendees find this face-to-face interaction far more exhilarating than the often-disappointing world of online dating sites like eHarmony or Match.com.

Who You’ll Meet

The “Valley Vixens and Hipsters” crowd is a unique blend of young professionals, creative types, and established career-focused individuals. They’re often juggling busy work lives with a desire for meaningful connections, tired of the casual hookup culture perpetuated by apps. Many have experienced the challenges of dating after divorce or navigating the complexities of being single parents.Β 

To make the most of your speed dating experience, be authentic, ask thoughtful questions, and don’t be afraid to show your quirky side – after all, that’s what makes Brisbane’s dating scene so special! If sparks fly, why not suggest a second date at the nearby Brisbane Powerhouse? Its industrial-chic atmosphere and regular comedy nights provide the perfect backdrop for getting to know your match better.

The Venue

Hey Chica! isn’t just any bar – it’s a Latin-inspired fiesta that sets the perfect tone for a night of romantic possibilities. Originally a wool store in the 1900s, this historic building was transformed into a vibrant cocktail bar by owners Simon Shearer and Manny Sakellarakis in 2018. The venue’s exposed brick walls and colorful murals create an atmosphere that’s both intimate and energizing, ideal for sparking connections during speed dating.Β 

The outdoor courtyard offers a breezy escape for those needing a quick breather between dates, while the central bar ensures your glass is never empty. For a true taste of Hey Chica!, order their signature Spiced Pineapple Margarita – it’s the perfect icebreaker and conversation starter. The venue’s lively ambiance perfectly complements the excitement of speed dating, creating an unforgettable experience for Brisbane singles looking for love in the Valley.
