The Event What to expect?

We are very excited to be holding another one of our UNIQUE Matched Speed Dating events in the Northern Beaches - this time in the ultra-cool Blacket's Whiskey Bar inside the iconic Hotel Steyne!

Fill out a profile in under 5 minutes and be matched on a series of 6-8 quick-fire date rounds to THE most compatible singles in the room.

This event includes 2 drinks - one on arrival and one at the end of dating.

Check-in is on your phone, with NO match cards, drink tokens, paper or pens required - just bring your phone and your great attitude! So, please ensure it's fully charged.

The Event

- Experience a series of relaxed mini-dates selected for you each round by an intelligent algorithm live at the event.
- Hosted by a friendly and professional team.
- Handpicked, top bar with a welcoming atmosphere.
- Connect freely with your mutual matches the next day on CitySwoon.
- Opportunity to connect with the other participants you don't date on the night.

The Venue

Located on the top floor of one of Manly's most historic buildings, Blacket's Whiskey Bar was originally built in 1913 before being revamped and named after its original designer - Edmund Blacket. In contrast to the enormity of the hotel, Blacket's Bar provides an intimate and seductive setting. Settle in and enjoy the warm surrounds of Blacket's Bar, a hidden den within Hotel Steyne, ideal for sipping your favourite whiskey over conversation with friends - or, for tonight, a series of 12 minute dates!
