Speed Dating Social Events In Chatswood

Discover the thrill of speed dating in Chatswood, a vibrant suburb of Sydney where singles mingle and potentially find love in a fun, fast-paced setting. Victoria Avenue, the main nightlife hub, hosts most of these exciting events. Easily accessible via public transport, hop on the T1 North Shore Line train to Chatswood Station, just a short walk from the action.Β 

As you arrive, you’ll experience a brief mingle before the 7pm start, followed by twelve 5-minute mini-dates, a 10-minute intermission at 8pm, and a 9pm finish. Typically held on Thursdays or Fridays, these events utilize the innovative Matching App 4.0, where you can select ‘match’ or ‘friend’ for each person you meet, receiving your matches at 8am the next day. And when speed dating, consider discussing the beautiful Chatswood Mall Market, suggesting it as a potential second date location.

For the perfect outfit, consider smart casual attire from Westfield Chatswood’s diverse range of shops. You’ll meet singles not only from Chatswood but also neighboring suburbs like Artarmon and Willoughby. As an attendee, you’ll feel the excitement of meeting new people in a structured yet relaxed environment. Book your ticket on Eventbrite, selecting your age group from 20s to 70s, with specialized events for Gay, LGBTQ, Christian, and Asian communities.

Our Venues

The Orchard Tavern, located on Victoria Avenue. This modern bar, built in 2010 on the site of a former apple orchard, is owned by the Laundy Hotel Group. Its rustic-chic decor, featuring reclaimed wood and industrial elements, creates an intimate atmosphere perfect for speed dating. The tavern’s signature cocktail, the Apple Pie Martini, is a great conversation starter. A unique feature is their ‘ice-breaker wall’ where participants can write fun facts about themselves, adding an interactive element to the event.

Platform Eighty2, situated on Help Street. This stylish venue, converted from an old railway platform in 2015, is owned by hospitality veterans Jake and Elle. Its industrial-meets-cozy vibe, complete with exposed brick and vintage railway memorabilia, provides a nostalgic backdrop for speed dating. Their ‘Platform Punch’ is a must-try. The venue’s ‘conversation booths’, reminiscent of train compartments, offer a unique and intimate setting for mini-dates.

The Bavarian Chatswood, on Victoria Avenue. This Bavarian-themed bar, established in 2018, is part of the Rockpool Dining Group. Its spacious beer hall layout, complete with long communal tables and traditional decor, creates a lively atmosphere for speed dating events. Their signature drink is the refreshing ‘Bavarian Radler’. The venue’s ‘stein challenge’ during intermission adds a fun, competitive element to the night.

What To Expect At Our Events

At our events, 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 men rotate every 5 minutes. You’ll have 12 mini-dates in total, with the option to play ice-breaker games during intermission or use conversation cards if you’re stuck for words. With 40 attendees (20 men and 20 women), the equal ratio ensures a balanced experience. Many find this face-to-face interaction more engaging than popular dating apps like Tinder or Bumble.

Speed Dating Social, founded by Darcy Todd in 2020, has hosted over 787 events, introducing more than 37,423 singles. Tickets are priced at $29.90 for early birds and $34.90 for last-minute bookings. No refunds are offered within 30 days of an event to ensure balanced ratios. For any queries, contact matches@speeddatingsocial.com.

Who You'll Meet

You’ll meet a diverse range of singles, from young professionals in their 20s to mature daters over 50. Some attendees are seasoned speed daters, while others are first-timers, creating a dynamic mix of personalities and experiences. If you’re a single parent, consider using Chatswood Child Care Centre while you attend the event. Afterwards, you could plan a follow-up date at Chatswood Park, where kids can play while you continue your connection.

Post Event Chatswood Date Night Ideas

For post-event date ideas, consider The Concourse, Chatswood’s cultural hub. This modern complex offers various entertainment options, perfect for continuing your conversation in a relaxed setting. Top tip: Check their event calendar for interesting shows or exhibitions to attend together. Alternatively, head to Chatswood Chase for a casual shopping date. This upscale mall provides plenty of opportunities for window shopping and light-hearted conversation. Pro tip: Challenge each other to find the quirkiest item in a chosen store for a fun, interactive experience.

For a great outfit, visit Westfield Chatswood on Victor Street, where you’ll find a variety of shops to suit your style and budget.

When speed dating, discuss your interests, hobbies, and career aspirations. A great local topic is the Chatswood Sculpture Trail – you could suggest exploring it together on a second date, which can lead to discussions about art appreciation and outdoor activities. This shared experience can help establish commonalities and potentially spark a romantic connection.

This inclusive bar, established in 2015 by queer couple Alex and Sam, features a rainbow-themed dance floor and a wall of LGBTQIA+ history, creating a welcoming atmosphere for the community. Here, you’ll meet a diverse group of singles, including genderqueer individuals, WLW (women loving women), MLM (men loving men), trans, and bi singles. The events celebrate the full spectrum of LGBTQIA+ identities, fostering a sense of belonging and potential for meaningful connections.

Fitness-focused speed dating events are perfect for meeting health-conscious singles. During these events, you could discuss Anytime Fitness on Victoria Avenue as a potential spot for a shared workout or gym date. This can help establish mutual interests and set the stage for an active second date.

Yes, animal lover speed dating events are popular in Chatswood. These are often held at The Doghouse, a dog-friendly bar on Help Street. To connect with fellow animal enthusiasts, ask about pets or favorite animals. For a second date, consider suggesting a visit to Chatswood Park, where you can bring your furry friends and enjoy a relaxed, pet-friendly atmosphere while getting to know each other better.

To look your best, visit Toni&Guy on Victoria Avenue. Ask for a style that enhances your features and boosts your confidence. A fresh haircut or style can make you feel more self-assured during your speed dating experience.

Discuss local hobby clubs or activities during speed dating. For instance, mention the Chatswood Chess Club, which meets weekly at The Concourse. If you find a shared interest in chess or strategy games, you could invite your date to join you for a game, fostering a deeper connection based on mutual interests.
