Speed Dating Social Events In Broadmeadows

Looking for love in Broadmeadows, Victoria? Forget swiping endlessly on dating apps – speed dating is where it’s at! This vibrant Melbourne suburb is the perfect backdrop for finding your perfect match, with Pascoe Vale Road serving as the main artery for nightlife and our exciting singles events. Getting to your romantic rendezvous is a breeze – just hop on the Craigieburn line train and alight at Broadmeadows Station, where your potential soulmate might be just a few steps away.

Our speed dating socials kick off with a lively mingle at 7pm, giving you a chance to break the ice before the main event. Once the bell rings, it’s game on! Ladies take their seats while gents rotate every 5 minutes, giving you 12 mini-dates to spark that connection. Don’t stress about keeping track – our nifty Matching App 4.0 has got you covered. Just scan in, select ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’ for each person you meet, and wake up to your matches at 8am the next day. It’s like Christmas morning for singles!

Wondering what to wear? Broadmeadows’ vibe calls for smart-casual, so why not swing by Broadmeadows Central for that perfect outfit that says “I’m here to impress, but I’m also totally chill”? You’ll be rubbing shoulders with singles from neighboring Glenroy and Meadow Heights too, so bring your A-game!

Booking is a breeze on Eventbrite, where you can select your age group (20s to 70s) and even find specialized events for LGBTQ+, Christian, and Asian singles. Stuck for conversation starters? Why not chat about the Broadmeadows Valley Park? It’s the perfect spot for a second date, and suggesting a romantic walk through its scenic trails might just seal the deal for that coveted follow-up meetup.

Our Venues

Now, let’s talk venues! First up is The Valley Bar on Pascoe Vale Road, a local favorite since 2010. Formerly an old warehouse, this trendy spot was transformed by owner Lisa Chen into a hip, industrial-chic bar that perfectly captures Broadmeadows’ evolving vibe. The venue’s exposed brick walls provide a cool backdrop for speed dating, while the custom-built conversation booths offer just the right amount of privacy for those mini-dates. Don’t miss the rooftop terrace – it’s perfect for catching your breath between rounds and maybe sharing a romantic moment under the stars. Be sure to try their signature ‘Broadmeadows Bliss’ cocktail – it might just give you the liquid courage you need! Pro tip: arrive early to snag a spot near the fireplace for extra coziness during your mini-dates.

Next, we’ve got The Meadows Lounge on Dimboola Road, a classy establishment that’s been setting the mood for romance since 2015. Owner James Thompson converted this former community hall into an elegant lounge that exudes sophistication. The venue’s plush velvet seating and soft lighting create an intimate atmosphere perfect for those speed dating conversations. Live jazz performances on weekends add a touch of class to your dating experience, while the state-of-the-art sound system ensures you can hear your date without straining. Their famous ‘Love Potion No. 9’ cocktail is a must-try – who knows, it might just be the secret ingredient to a successful match! To make the most of your Meadows Lounge experience, come ready to engage in witty banter and show off your smooth moves on the dance floor during intermission.

Last but not least, there’s The Hume Hotel on Hume Highway, a Broadmeadows institution with a stellar Google My Business rating. Built in 1850 as a coaching inn, this historic pub has been lovingly restored by the O’Brien family, who’ve owned it for three generations. The venue’s rich history provides perfect conversation starters, while the recently renovated speed dating area offers a modern twist on classic charm. The Hume’s famous beer garden is a hit with speed daters, offering a relaxed outdoor space to mingle before and after the main event. Their signature ‘Hume Brew’ is a local craft beer that’s sure to impress your date. Speed dating at The Hume feels like stepping into a time machine where old-world charm meets modern romance. Tip: Brush up on some local history to really impress your dates!

What To Expect At Our Events

What to expect at our events? Fun, connection, and maybe a dash of romance! Upon arrival, you’ll get your name card and scan the QR code for the Matching App 4.0. After some mingling, ladies take their seats while our friendly hosts guide the gents through rotations. You’ll have 12 five-minute mini-dates from 7pm to 9pm, with a 10-minute intermission for ice-breaker games. Use the app to select ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’, and wake up to your matches the next morning. With 40 attendees (20 men and 20 women), you’re guaranteed equal ratios and plenty of opportunities to connect. Compared to popular dating apps like Tinder or Bumble, our events offer real-life interactions that beat swiping any day!
