Go to the venue at the published start time for the event.
There is no official start time to the speed dating portion of the evening - we like to wait for all daters to arrive, to have a moment to settle in with a refreshment and mingle should they wish.
The gents move from lovely lady to lovely lady every six to seven minutes.
Simply jot down your potential 'Date-Mates' at the bottom of your Scorecard and we'll take care of the rest.
We don’t find anything romantic about name tags, microphones and whistles – so we don’t use them! Daters that don’t like to settle and tend to set the trend rather than follow it. You will be sent a confirmation from us and your name will be noted on our Guest List.~~Do you screen your speed daters?
We are in part defined by our venues and our crowd reflects such. Simply select the EVENT SCHEDULE tab on the homepage for a listing of our events. In the 10 years we have had the pleasure of serving daters we've noticed the nicer a dater is to us, our hosts and each other, the more matches they get.
If we don't think a dater is someone that fellow daters would get on with - we'll respectfully decline service and reserve the right to do so. We think 'Meet-Up' is a lovely free service that gives those of similar interests the opportunity to connect. Also, it is a good idea to keep checking back on our website as sometimes reservations become available at the last minute. Please try to avoid doing anything unsafe in your attempt to arrive to the event on time - we do like to wait for all participants to arrive.
We do question businesses that promote their events through "Meet-Up" groups - only to redirect you to their own website. This may cause an event to start late but we feel a perfect opportunity to chat up the hosts, have a lovely refreshment and settle in. You checked each other on your scorecards and your email address will be exchanged with this person 24 hours after the event.
Chat up our Hosts for tips or simply to ask, which direction the bar is in!
After being shown to your table, the ladies will remain seated for the duration of the event.
A low key, sophisticated approach to dating in New York.
