Speed Dating Social Events In Fitzroy

Speed Dating Social’s fantastic singles events in Fitzroy, is a thrilling social experience where you get to meet and connect with multiple people in a single night. With each interaction lasting about five minutes, our dating events in Fitzroy capture the eclectic and creative spirit of the area, known for its artistic vibe, diverse crowd, and rich cultural tapestry. Fitzroy’s dynamic personality means you’ll meet local singles who are adventurous, open-minded, and eager to build meaningful connections.

Fitzroy is a suburb known for its buzzing nightlife and artistic flair. Most of our popular bars, pubs, and nightclubs are clustered along Brunswick Street, a lively thoroughfare that’s a hotspot for social gatherings. To get here, you can easily catch Tram Route 11 or 96, both of which stop near Brunswick Street, or take the train to the nearest station, Collingwood, which is just a short walk away.

Our Venues

Naked for Satan: This iconic rooftop bar offers spectacular city views, making it a breathtaking backdrop for your speed dating experience. Naked for Satan is famous for its infused vodkas and pintxos, tiny tapas-style snacks. Housed in a building from the early 1900s, its rustic charm and lively atmosphere add a unique twist to each mini-date. The venue is co-owned by Dave Kerr and Jon Bendall, whose passion for creating a welcoming, energetic space enhances the relaxed, yet vibrant mood of our events. A signature drink here is the Naked Devil Martini, perfect for sipping as you chat.

The Night Cat: With its live music and funky dΓ©cor, The Night Cat provides a vibrant, engaging atmosphere for speed dating. Known for its circular stage and eclectic mix of performers, it adds an energetic pulse to our singles events. Established in 1993, this venue is a cornerstone of Fitzroy’s music scene. Owned by veteran musician James Young, its artistic soul creates a thrilling backdrop for singles to meet and mingle. Try their signature β€œNight Cat Mojito” while enjoying the electric ambiance.

The Everleigh: This classic cocktail bar offers a more intimate and sophisticated setting. With its vintage dΓ©cor, The Everleigh is reminiscent of a 1920s speakeasy, offering a quieter, more refined speed dating experience. The bar’s owner, Michael Madrusan, a celebrated mixologist, has crafted an elegant menu that pairs perfectly with meaningful conversations. Their β€œGolden Age” cocktail is a standout, ideal for a first-date toast.

What To Expect At Our Events

Our speed dating events are designed to maximize your chances of meeting someone special. You’ll enjoy around 12 five-minute mini-dates throughout the evening, starting at 7 PM and wrapping up by 9 PM, with a 10-minute intermission halfway through. This gives you just enough time to make a memorable impression and decide if you’d like to see someone again.

To make the most out of your night, ensure you scan into the Matching App 4.0 upon arrival, using the Event Code, your name, starting table number, email, and mobile number. Throughout the event, you can tick anyone you like in the app, and our system will pass your contact details to anyone you select as a β€˜Match’ or β€˜Friend’ at 8 AM the next day.

Remember, we always maintain an equal ratio of men and women, and our events are founded by the enthusiastic Darcy Todd in 2020. Tickets start at $29.90 for early birds and $34.90 for last release, with no refunds within 30 days of the event. For more information, reach out to us at matches@speeddatingsocial.com

Who You'll Meet

Our events typically attract a balanced group of 40 attendees, with a 2-year tolerance either side of the specified age ranges, ensuring diversity and compatibility. Expect to meet people from Fitzroy and surrounding suburbs like Collingwood and Carlton, including various demographics from young professionals to creative types and perhaps even a few single parents or individuals dating after divorce.

Why Speed Dating is Unique:

Unlike dating apps or websites like Tinder or Bumble, which can often lead to endless texting and ghosting, our in-person speed dating events offer genuine, face-to-face connections. You get to experience the chemistry in real-time, making it easier to build rapport and understand if there’s potential for a relationship. Plus, with ice breaker games and conversation cards, we ensure there’s never a dull moment!

Romantic Destinations for a Second Date:

If sparks fly, why not take your new match to Edinburgh Gardens for a romantic picnic under the stars? This lush green space is perfect for an intimate evening walk or a cozy chat on a blanket. Another great option is Little Creatures Brewery, where you can enjoy a laid-back atmosphere, delicious craft beers, and a casual meal, making it an ideal spot for a relaxed, fun second date.
