Talk more to the people you want to!

Saturday July 2nd 7:00pm | $49 includes 2 drinks , share platter + private bus to Cloudland | Baedeker 111 Constance st Fortitude Valley

Wouldn’t it be nice at speed dating if you could talk more to the people you liked? Tonight it’s up to you! Meet a host of people with a brief interaction and then follow up over a snack or later in the night with the ones you want to talk to!

We have a private room at Baedeker this night where the introductory speed dating will take place, complete with cheese & charcuterie share platters. Your ticket includes two drinks at Baedeker (2 of beers, wines or cider; or you can get 1 spirit).  After you’ve met around 14 people at Baedeker, we have a private bus lined up to take you to afterparty location Cloudland, where you’ll be able to follow up with the people you’ve hit it off with, and dance the night away.

Here’s the schedule for the night:

6:45 Cheese & charcuterie for the early birds.

7:00 Registration for the speed dating begins. Early birds can begin speed dating from this time.

7:20 – 8:30 Meet fourteen people for 4 minutes at a time. This will be a full on 60 minutes where we’ll arrange for you to meet one person after another one on one. This will be fast and furious!

8:30 Mingling, more snacks served at Baedeker.

9:15 Head via our private bus to Cloudland for music, DJs and dancing.

You’ll hand in a match card where you can designate 5 people as matches, and if they write your name too your details will be exchanged the next day.

Baedeker is run by Wine & Dine’m who in 2019 were national caterer of the year, no mean feat competing with all the venues down south! Baedeker has a classy, nostalgic ambiance and they even have a sliding-bookcase secret door!

Harassment and other social misdemeanours are not tolerated in this group. This will be a safe, pressure-free space…you are welcome to come and see the organisers about any concerns. We’ll have at least two hosts there on the night.

We only display close up photos of people who have given us permission. Often they're people who have come several times and will do us a favour by posing for a photo.

There are many competining 'businesses' out there on the internet that are borderline scams, (often from overseas), so we strive to show you that we are the real dea with media both on our webpage, Facebook page and Instagram. Reviews also help!

In conclusion - you don't have to worry about being photographed.  

A: 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.

The cart is located in the top right hand corner of the screen (under the = menu on a phone). Click on that and then you can delete tickets in your cart.  

 

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. Ask us if we can organise one for you if you're coming by yourself and would like to make some friends first!

Dress to impress - it's not the door man's judgment you need to worry about, it's the person sitting opposite you. For a more in-depth response on what to wear speed dating in Brisbane, click here.

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 always send your matches in an email the next day. If you don’t receive it on the next day, feel free to message us why – some customers have been known to enter their email address incorrectly.

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.  

We only display close up photos of people who have given us permission. Often they're people who have come several times and will do us a favour by posing for a photo.
