Our events kick off with a casual mingle at 7 pm, followed by twelve 5-minute mini-dates. At 8 pm, there’s a 10-minute intermission for refreshments and ice-breaker games.

Book your ticket on Eventbrite, choosing from age groups spanning 20s to 70s, with special events for LGBTQ+, Christian, and Asian singles.

When speed dating, break the ice by discussing the iconic Warringah Mall. Share your favorite stores or suggest meeting there for a casual second date. This local landmark provides a perfect conversation starter and potential future meeting spot.

What To Expect At Our Events

Upon arrival, you’ll receive a name card and scan a QR code to access the Matching App 4.0, where you can view all attendees. After mingling at the bar, ladies take their seats while gentlemen rotate every 5 minutes. Use your phone to select ‘Match’ or ‘Friend’ for each person you meet. The next morning at 8 am, you’ll receive your matches’ contact details. With 12 mini-dates, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to connect. If conversation lags, our provided ice-breaker games and conversation cards can help. We typically host 40 attendees (20 men and 20 women), ensuring equal ratios for a balanced experience. Many find our events more engaging and genuine compared to popular dating apps like Tinder or Bumble.

Who You'll Meet

Attendees come from Brookvale and neighboring suburbs like Freshwater and Curl Curl, creating a rich mix of local singles. The atmosphere is friendly and open, with many first-timers and repeat attendees alike. To make the most of your experience, approach each mini-date with curiosity and genuine interest.

Post Event Brookvale Date Night Ideas

For a romantic follow-up, try Pilu at Freshwater. This beachfront Italian restaurant offers stunning views and exquisite cuisine. To enhance your date, arrive before sunset for a picturesque beach walk, and don’t shy away from sharing dishes – it creates a more intimate dining experience.

Alternatively, Manly SEA LIFE Sanctuary provides a unique, interactive date setting. As you explore marine life together, use the exhibits as conversation starters. To make the most of your visit, book a behind-the-scenes tour for an exclusive shared experience, and plan to have dinner at one of Manly’s waterfront restaurants afterward to continue your connection.

Whether you’re new to the dating scene, recently divorced, or simply looking to expand your social circle, our Speed Dating Social events in Brookvale offer a fresh alternative to dating apps and websites. Unlike the often superficial interactions on platforms like Tinder or OkCupid, our events provide genuine face-to-face connections.

Frequently Asked Questions

First impressions matter, so dress to impress! For ladies, a cute cocktail dress or stylish top with nice jeans works well. Guys, opt for smart casual – think collared shirt and well-fitted trousers. Avoid anything too revealing or overly casual. For trendy outfits, check out General Pants Co. on Pittwater Road in Warringah Mall. Remember, confidence is your best accessory, so wear something that makes you feel great!

Keep it light and fun! Ask about hobbies, travel experiences, or favorite local spots. A great ice-breaker is discussing the recent renovations at Warringah Mall. You could ask, “Have you checked out the new food court? What’s your go-to place there?” This can lead to chatting about favorite cuisines or even planning a casual mall date. Avoid heavy topics like politics or exes. The goal is to find common interests and leave them wanting to know more about you!

For our queer community, we host fabulous LGBTQIA+ speed dating nights at The Burrow Bar on Pittwater Road. This inclusive venue, opened in 2018 by local queer icon Sam Martinez, features a rainbow-lit dance floor and gender-neutral bathrooms, creating a welcoming atmosphere for all. Whether you’re gay, lesbian, bi, trans, or anywhere on the spectrum, you’ll find a diverse mix of singles ready to mingle. Our events attract everyone from lipstick lesbians to bears, twinks to butch queens. It’s a celebration of love in all its forms – you might meet your future wife, husband, or non-binary life partner!

Fitness fanatics, we’ve got you covered! Our “Fit and Flirty” speed dating events attract health-minded singles. Mention your workout routine at F45 Training on Old Pittwater Road to find a potential gym buddy. You could say, “I’m addicted to their HIIT classes. Have you tried them?” This could lead to planning a workout date or discussing favorite protein shake recipes. It’s a great way to establish mutual interests and maybe even find your swolemate!

Calling all pet parents! Our “Paws and Flirt” events at the dog-friendly Brookvale Hotel are perfect for animal enthusiasts. Break the ice by showing photos of your fur babies or asking, “Are you a dog person or a cat person?” For a second date, suggest a trip to Brookvale Oval, a popular off-leash area. Picture strolling through the park, dogs playing together, as you get to know each other better. It’s a relaxed, fun way to bond over your shared love of animals.

Boost your confidence with a pre-event glow-up! Book an appointment at Toni & Guy on Warringah Mall Boulevard. Ask for a bouncy blowout or a fresh trim to feel your best. Ladies, consider a natural makeup look that enhances your features without going overboard. Guys, a clean shave or well-groomed beard can work wonders. Remember, the most attractive quality is authenticity, so let your true self shine through!

Brookvale is full of hidden gems for hobby enthusiasts! During speed dating, mention your interest in joining the Brookvale Community Garden on Soldiers Avenue. It’s a great way to meet eco-conscious singles and could lead to a cute second date planting veggies together. Whether you’re into gardening, sports, or book clubs, sharing your passions is the best way to form genuine connections.

We typically host around 40 attendees per event, with an equal mix of men and women. You’ll meet singles not just from Brookvale, but also from neighboring Dee Why and Manly. This diverse mix increases your chances of finding compatible matches within the Northern Beaches area. It’s the perfect balance – enough people to provide variety, but not so many that it feels overwhelming.

Our Asian singles events at Teru Sushi Bar on Pittwater Road are always a hit! This sleek venue offers a modern twist on traditional Japanese decor, creating a perfect backdrop for romance. Try their signature Dragon Roll – it’s a great conversation starter! Compared to apps like EastMeetEast, our events offer a more personal touch. You’ll meet a diverse group of Asian singles, from ABC (Australian-born Chinese) professionals to international students, all looking for genuine connections.

Our Christian mingles take place at The Baptist Centre on Pittwater Road, offering a wholesome environment for faith-based connections. Unlike Christian dating apps like SALT, our events allow you to sense that spiritual spark in person. Conversations often revolve around church involvement, favorite Bible verses, and faith journeys. You might even discover you both attend St. Faith’s Anglican Church and can plan a Sunday service date!

For our fabulous 40+ crowd, we host events at the sophisticated Barrel One Coffee Roasters on Mitchell Road. These nights attract a mix of divorced singles, career-focused professionals, and those embracing a second chance at love. Many are looking for genuine companionship and shared life experiences. Beyond our events, check out the “Northern Beaches 40+ Social Club” on Meetup for more opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals.

Our “Silver Foxes and Vixens” nights at Club Totem on Condamine Street are always a blast! This retro-chic venue, with its nostalgic 70s decor, sets the perfect mood for mature singles to mingle. Attendees are often seeking meaningful connections, companionship, and maybe even a travel buddy for their next adventure. While apps like SilverSingles can be useful, nothing beats the chemistry of face-to-face interactions at our events.

For a unique and fun follow-up date, head to Archie Brothers Cirque Electriq in Westfield Warringah Mall. This adult playground offers arcade games, bowling, and even cocktails served in popcorn cups! Challenge your date to a game of air hockey or share a laugh in the wacky photo booth. It’s the perfect way to keep the playful energy of speed dating going and see if you’re truly compatible. Pro tip: Winner buys the next round of drinks!
