CHOOSE CAREFULLY AND READ ALL OF OUR CONDITIONS! 

For the following reasons you will be contacted by our management -

Sudden COVID lockdown/restrictions, event that you booked hasn't got enough people attending and can't run - we need an adequate amount of attendees per gender in order to run an event, or there is a venue availability date/time change. You will then be rescheduled according to the next available event

These are reasons that are beyond our control so thanks for your understanding. 

PLEASE DON'T ATTEND IF YOU ARE UNWELL. 

PLEASE RESPECT OUR STAFF AT ALL TIMES!

IF YOU DON'T COMPLY WITH OUR RULES, WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO EITHER BLOCK OR BAN YOU FROM ATTENDING OUR EVENTS (CURRENT & FUTURE.) BAD BEHAVIOUR WILL NOT BE TOLERATED WHATSOEVER*

You can wear a mask as you enter, but it is not compulsory. Most people should be fully vaccinated against COVID - 19

HOW IT WORKS:


BOOKINGS ARE REQUIRED FOR BOTH

SPEED DATING EVENTS ARE HELD EVERY THURSDAY NIGHT ON A FORTNIGHTLY BASIS (Different age groups)

DINNER DATES ARE HELD WEEKLY ON FRIDAYS (Different age groups will be offered each week)


(SPEED DATING)

Events strictly start on time. So please be punctual. No late attendees will be accepted. The host of the event will begin with a short welcoming speech explaining the speed dating process & any ice breaker tips on what to talk about on your date. Events are for 1 hour only. Each individual date lasts approximately 10 minutes. Ladies sit down and gentlemen rotate around the room as each date ends on individual or long tables.

If you don't get any matches on the night, then our policy is you can return again if you wish, to receive 50% off your entry fee for the next time that you attend. For example: (REGULAR ENTRY FEE OF $50 PER PERSON, WILL BE $25 PER PERSON.) This is our good deed to all our customers. And it encourages them to never give up on their love search!

NOTE: THIS DISCOUNT ONLY APPLIES TO SPEED DATING, NOT DINNER DATES.


(DINNER DATES)

Once you have checked in with the manager, you will be asked to take a seat according to where your name sticker is attached on the table. Tables and chairs will be spread apart around the venue. Dinner is included. However, you must select meals from THE FAVOURITES section of the menu within the price range of $30 to $55 ONLY. THIS IS OUR REQUIREMENT. Meals that are above this price range will not be included in the price. You will have to pay if you choose not to stick to our rule. Tell the matchmaker on the night what you would like to order and it will be sent to your table. A free drink will be provided on entry as our gift to you!

You will be seated by random according to the host. Like a blind date! There are no time limits! No swapping partners to move to someone else is permitted. The dates will be conducted according to the scheduled times: From 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm. You can mingle at your own pace.  And you can leave at any time within this timeframe if you wish.

All singles are grouped according to ages. Because of COVID, pens and scorecards will be provided on the night. 

Dinner dates are not rushed like speed dating. At the end of the selected dinner dates, you will then need to fill out the scorecards according to whether you would like to see the other person again or not. Name stickers/labels must be worn and numbered. Strict numbers per event: 5 guys and 5 girls. Total of 10 participants. All scorecards must be handed in before you leave to the manager.  Results get emailed/texted on the next business day. So watch your phones and check your emails!


TIPS:

Grooming - Present yourself well. Wear clothes in which you feel attractive (semi formal dress code.)

Good posture & make eye contact

Positive mannerisms & smile

Don't talk over your date, be polite

Tone of voice - soft, gentle & calm

Body language - lean in to show interest

Talk about your career, interests, goals for the future, favourite things & don't forget to throw in a joke as well!

Don't mention ex's, don't ask why they are here, how many times they have attended

Light & fun conversations work! Sell yourself & relax! Don't ask about break ups, complain about life because this doesn't present you in the best spotlight

REMEMBER THESE QUOTES:

'To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.' Ralph Waldo Emerson

'No relationship is all sunshine, but two people can share one umbrella & survive the storm together.' Unknown

At the end of the night, you will get the opportunity to mingle & share drinks/meal at your own expense with anyone you fancy.
