Speed Dating 30-43 Dutch Courage MEN SOLD OUT

Thursday 21st October 7pm | $49 includes any cocktail | Dutch Courage 51 Alfred St Fortitude Valley

Join us at Dutch Courage for this stylish speed dating event where your ticket includes any cocktail on the menu.

​Queensland’s first gin bar, Dutch Courage is designed with a plantation style and  offers an impressive 200+ selection of spirits. This includes over 140 gins, with flavours such as blueberries and pink pepper. We will have exclusive use of the upstairs mezzanine floor, further enhancing the mood-lit, romantic vibe.

If you don’t feel like a cocktail you can get a standard drink for $6 less (select the standard ticket below).

Meet ~10 singles one after another with dates going between six and eight minutes. If you match with your partner your contact details will be exchanged the next day via email (from the host). If the love bug doesn’t bite, but you’d like a friendship, you can choose to match as a friend. You can also choose between providing a phone number or email address to potential matches. 30-43  refers to the recommended age of attendees.
*Please be aware there will be a rush for cocktails around 7:00, so may wish to arrive a bit earlier or get your cocktail later on.

As in a way the customers are the product, we can't operate with a refund policy when people change their minds. However if you are unable to attend for reasons such as having covid-19, you can use your payment as credit for other events. Send us a contact on our contact page. If the singles event is cancelled due to something like a global pandemic, we will of course offer a prompt refund.

This is a very frequently asked question (unlike some of the others :) ). Yes we do have many people coming by themselves - our events are a great place to make mates as well as dates!

But we understand that it can be difficult turning up by yourself so sometimes we'll have a pre-event meet and greet for people who come by themselves. 

Dress to impress - it's not the door man's judgment you need to worry about, it's the person sitting opposite you. 

Give people a chance! Matching someone isn't an engagement - it simply allows you to continue your conversation past the six minutes. You aren't even committed to a date once you match. And no.

Speed dating allows you to meet 10 or more people in a short amount of time (hence the word speed). The host will time each date (6-8 minutes) and ensure everyone moves on to the next person. Often you can get a feel for a person's energy very quickly face to face, whereas it may be impossible after communicating online for weeks, if not months.


At a speed dating event in Brisbane you'll fill in a match card (ticking a person is like swiping right) which you'll hand in, and the following day you'll be informed of your matches, and what their (chosen) contact details are. You can choose to match a person as 'date' or 'friend' (or neither). If one person looking for love ticks date, and one happy with a friendship ticks friend - you will each be matched as a friend. Therefore we request that you don't ask people you are speed dating for their contact details, as it is unnecessary and may put dates 'on the spot'.

We will email you your matches by the following day. Be sure to check your spam/junk folder as it can sometimes end up there. If you don't hear from us by the end of the day, feel free to send us a contact (see the footer on the website for options) - people have been known to submit emails with typos in them in the past.   

We only hand out contact details at speed dating when BOTH parties match with each other. So unless you matched with your date you have nothing to fear. If one party ticks ‘date’ and one ticks ‘friend’ you will be matched as a friend.
