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

Hey there, fellow Melburnians! Are you ready to shake up your love life and meet some amazing singles in our vibrant city? If you’re between 30-42 years old and tired of swiping endlessly on dating apps, it’s time to try something different – speed dating at the trendy Miranda Tequila Bar! This event is perfect for young professionals and established singles looking to make real connections in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. Being single in Melbourne can be both exciting and challenging, with our bustling cafe culture and hidden laneway bars offering endless possibilities for romance.Β 

But sometimes it’s hard to break the ice, right? That’s where Speed Dating Social comes in, hosting events at popular spots like Miranda Tequila Bar at 313 Flinders Lane. It’s super easy to get to – just hop on the 96 tram and get off at the Flinders Street Station stop. For the ladies, why not treat yourself to a new outfit from Melb Central’s Forever New before the event? And guys, don’t forget – smart casual is the way to go. You’ll be meeting singles not just from the CBD, but also neighbouring suburbs like South Yarra and Richmond, so put your best foot forward!

How It Works

Now, let’s talk about what to expect at the event. When you arrive, you’ll get a name tag and scan a QR code to access the Matching App 4.0, where you can see all the other attendees. Mingle at the bar for a bit, then the ladies take their seats while the gents rotate every 5 minutes. You’ll have 12 mini-dates in total, lasting from 7-9pm.Β 

Use the app to mark who you’d like to ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’, and you’ll get your mutual matches’ contact details at 8am the next day. Don’t worry if you’re feeling nervous – there are ice breaker games and conversation cards to help keep things flowing. With 20 guys and 20 ladies, the equal ratio means everyone gets a fair shot. Honestly, it’s way more fun and less pressure than endlessly messaging on Tinder or Bumble!

Who You’ll Meet

So, who’ll you meet at this 30-42 speed dating event? We like to call this crowd the “Established Millennials” – folks who are killing it in their careers, maybe thinking about settling down, but definitely not willing to settle. They’re the ones brunching at Higher Ground on weekends, hitting up rooftop bars like Naked for Satan, and maybe even signed up for a co-ed sports league to meet people.Β 

Many have tried the dating app scene but are craving more authentic connections. The challenge? Finding someone who’s on the same page about life goals and ready for a real relationship. My top tip: Be open and genuine. Ask questions that really matter to you, and don’t be afraid to show your quirky side. And hey, if you hit it off with someone, why not suggest a second date at the nearby NGV? Nothing like a bit of art to spark some deep conversations!

Your Host

Speed Dating Social has been bringing Melbourne singles together since 2020, when founder Darcy Todd decided there had to be a better way to date. With over 787 events under their belt and more than 37,423 introductions made, they’ve got this down to a science. They always ensure equal ratios of men and women, so you’re guaranteed to have someone to chat with all night.Β 

Tickets start at $29.90 for early birds, going up to $34.90 for last-minute decision makers. Just remember, there are no refunds within 30 days of the event – but trust us, you won’t want to miss this! If you’ve got any questions, shoot an email toΒ matches@speeddatingsocial.com.

The Venue

Miranda Tequila Bar at 313 Flinders Lane is the perfect backdrop for your speed dating adventure. This sleek, modern bar with its exposed brick walls and mood lighting was actually a book bindery back in the 1920s before being transformed into the coolest tequila joint in town by owner Maria Gonzalez. The historic vibe adds a touch of romance to your mini-dates, while the buzzing atmosphere keeps things from getting too serious.Β 

The long, curved bar is perfect for mingling before the event kicks off, and the intimate booths are ideal for those 5-minute chats. Don’t miss their signature Spicy Mango Margarita – it’s a great ice breaker to order for your potential match! Speed dating here feels more like a fun night out with friends than a formal matchmaking event. Pro tip: Arrive a bit early to soak in the atmosphere and calm any pre-event jitters. Who knows? Your perfect match might just be waiting for you at Miranda Tequila Bar!
