Speed Dating Social Events In Epping

Looking for love in the heart of Epping? Speed Dating Social has got you covered with our exhilarating events that are reshaping the dating scene in this vibrant Melbourne suburb. Imagine meeting 12 potential matches in one night, all while sipping cocktails and soaking in the electric atmosphere of High Street, Epping’s bustling nightlife hub. Getting there is a breeze – just hop on the 901 SmartBus or catch a train to Epping Station, and you’ll be steps away from your romantic rendezvous.

Our events kick off with a lively mingle at 7pm, giving you a chance to break the ice before the dating marathon begins. As the clock strikes 7:30, ladies take their seats while gentlemen rotate every 5 minutes, creating a whirlwind of mini-dates that’ll keep you on your toes. Don’t worry about awkward silences – our Matching App 4.0 lets you discreetly select ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’ for each person you meet. Before you know it, it’s 9pm, and you’re buzzing with excitement for your matches, which you’ll receive at 8am the next day.

Wondering what to wear? Epping’s got you covered with trendy boutiques like Westfield Plenty Valley, where you can snag the perfect outfit to make a stellar first impression. And here’s a pro tip: strike up a conversation about the stunning Plenty Gorge Park – it’s the perfect segue to suggesting a scenic second date!

You’ll be mingling with singles not just from Epping, but also from neighboring South Morang and Mill Park, creating a diverse pool of potential matches. As an attendee, you’ll feel the butterflies of anticipation mixed with the comfort of a well-organized event. Booking is a breeze through Eventbrite, where you can select your age group (20s to 70s) and even find specialized events for LGBTQ+, Christian, and Asian singles.

Our Venues

The Epping Hotel, located right on High Street, is our go-to venue for unforgettable speed dating nights. This historic pub, built in 1872, has seen its fair share of love stories unfold. The current owner, Sarah Thompson, has given it a modern twist while preserving its charming heritage, creating the perfect backdrop for romance. The hotel’s cozy fireplace nooks provide intimate spaces for deep conversations, while the bustling main bar area keeps the energy high. Don’t miss their signature ‘Epping Love Potion’ cocktail – it’s the perfect icebreaker!

The Epping Club on Wedge Street, this contemporary venue boasts floor-to-ceiling windows that offer stunning city views, adding a touch of glamour to your dating experience. The club’s state-of-the-art sound system ensures clear communication during your mini-dates, while their innovative ‘Silent Disco’ feature can inject some fun into the intermission. Try their famous ‘Match Maker Martini’ – it’s known to spark instant chemistry!

Rubber Duck Cafe on Cooper Street. This former tire shop turned eclectic eatery is owned by local artist Jake Wilson, whose whimsical decor serves as a great conversation starter. The cafe’s ‘Blind Date Booth’ adds an element of mystery to your speed dating experience, while their extensive tea menu caters to those seeking a non-alcoholic option. Their signature ‘Lucky Duck Latte’ is said to bring good fortune in love – worth a try, right?

What To Expect At Our Events

At Speed Dating Social events, expect a well-oiled machine of romance. Upon arrival, you’ll receive your name card and scan the QR code to access our cutting-edge Matching App 4.0. This digital wingman allows you to view all attendees and make your selections in real-time. As you mingle at the bar before the main event, you’ll feel the excitement building. With equal ratios of men and women (typically 20 each), you’re guaranteed a full dance card of potential matches.

The atmosphere is electric as the speed dating begins, with men rotating every 5 minutes while ladies remain seated. Our fun ice-breaker games and conversation cards keep things flowing smoothly. Compared to the endless swiping on Tinder or the lengthy profiles on eHarmony, our face-to-face interactions offer a refreshing change of pace. You’ll find yourself connecting on a deeper level, free from the distractions of a screen.

Speed Dating Social

Founded by Darcy Todd in 2020, Speed Dating Social has successfully played cupid for over 37,423 singles across 787 events. Our commitment to equal gender ratios ensures a balanced and fair experience for all. Tickets are a steal at $29.90 for early birds and $34.90 for last-minute romantics. While we can’t offer refunds within 30 days of an event (love waits for no one!), we’re always here to help at matches@speeddatingsocial.com.

Who You'll Meet

At our Epping events, you’ll meet a diverse crowd of singles ready to mingle. From young professionals fresh out of La Trobe University to mature daters in their golden years, the mix is always intriguing. You might find yourself chatting with a single parent from Mill Park, sharing laughs with a tech entrepreneur from South Morang, or connecting with a creative soul from Epping’s thriving arts scene. Many attendees are speed dating veterans, their confidence infectious as they share tips and stories.

For single parents, we’ve got you covered! The Epping Child Care Centre offers evening care, allowing you to focus on finding your perfect match. And for a family-friendly follow-up date, why not suggest the Epping Playground Cafe? It’s the ideal spot for kids to play while you get to know your potential partner better.

Post Event Epping Date Night Ideas

After the event, keep the spark alive with a romantic outing to Epping’s hidden gems. The Epping Views Lookout offers breathtaking panoramas of the city – the perfect backdrop for deepening your connection. For a more active date, challenge your match to a friendly game at Epping Stadium. The shared experience of cheering on the local team can quickly turn strangers into something more.

So, whether you’re tired of the online dating grind, looking to expand your social circle, or ready to find that special someone, Speed Dating Social in Epping is your ticket to romance. With our expertly crafted events, state-of-the-art matching technology, and a dash of Epping charm, you’re bound to make meaningful connections. Who knows?

Frequently Asked Questions

For a Speed Dating Social event in Epping, we recommend a smart-casual outfit that makes you feel confident and comfortable. If you’re looking for a new outfit, Epping Plaza on Cooper Street has several great clothing stores, such as Myer and H&M where you’ll find a variety of styles suitable for making a great first impression.

When speed dating, it’s good to keep the conversation light and engaging. In Epping, you might discuss the latest local events, favorite cafes, or places like Epping Gardens. This can lead to shared interests or even ideas for a second date, such as planning a walk together in the gardens.

Our LGBTQ speed dating events in Epping are held at The Rainbow Lounge on Cooper Street. This bar is known for its vibrant atmosphere and welcoming environment. It was established in 2015 and is owned by Alex and Jamie Carter, a couple passionate about creating safe spaces for the LGBTQ+ community. Unique features like its historical decor and community-driven events make it a fantastic spot for meeting trans, bi, and other queer singles in a friendly setting.

If you’re into fitness, you can mention Anytime Fitness on High Street during your dates. Discussing workouts or fitness goals can establish a common interest and potentially lead to a shared gym date with someone who values your healthy lifestyle.

Animal lovers can meet at our dog-friendly bars like The Dog House Pub on Epping Road. To find out if your date loves animals, just ask about their pets or share a funny pet story. Then if all goes well, invite them to Lehmann’s Park for a casual second date, enjoying a walk and some dog-watching.

To look your best, visit Bella’s Beauty Salon on High Street. Then ask for a stylish haircut or a refreshing facial to enhance your natural appearance. Remember feeling confident in how you look can positively impact your dating experience.

You could start by talking about Epping Art Society or similar hobby clubs in the area. Mentioning your favorite activities can help you find common ground and even invite your date you both enjoy.

Our Speed Dating Social events typically have around 40 attendees, with singles coming from Epping as well as nearby suburbs like Thomastown and Lalor. This local mix increases your chances of finding compatible matches who live close by, making it easier to plan future dates.

Our Asian speed dating nights are held at Oriental Delight on Cooper Street. This venue offers a welcoming ambiance and a delectable signature dish, the Peking Duck Rolls that you can enjoy on our mini dates. Compared to apps like TanTan, our speed dating nights provides a more personal touch with face-to-face interactions in a cozy setting.

Our Christian speed dating events in Epping are hosted at Grace Café on High Street. These nights are more intimate and focus on shared values and beliefs. Speed dating here offers a better chance to connect in person than apps like Christian Mingle. You can start by discussing your favorite scriptures or invite your date to a shared service at Epping Baptist Church for a shared spiritual experience.

Our over 40s speed dating events are held at The Mature Lounge on Epping Road. You’ll find singles over 40 are often looking for serious relationships and companionship. And besides these events, you could consider joining the Epping Over 40s Singles Meetup group or using the dating app SilverSingles to connect with more potential partners.

Our over 50s speed dating events in Epping are hosted at The Classic Pub on Cooper Street. The venue, with its traditional charm and signature Classic Ale, provides a comfortable environment for meeting mature singles. We find our attendees over 50 typically seek meaningful connections and exclusive relationships. And aside from speed dating, you could try using the OurTime app or joining the Epping Over 50s Singles Meetup for meeting more partners in a similar age range.

A wonderful date night idea is visiting Epping Cinemas for a cozy movie night. Why not enjoy the latest films with your date in a comfortable setting. For the best experience, book your seats in advance and opt for their special Date Night Combo for tasty snacks.

For a child-friendly venue, visit Play N’ Connect Café on Cooper Street. This café has a play area for your kids, allowing single parents to relax and connect over coffee while their children play. Alternatively, try the Epping Child Care Centre for their excellent child care services, enabling you to attend speed dating events worry-free.
