CitySwoon is very excited to be bringing our in-person matched speed dating to the Inner-West.

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 free-flowing beer and wine for the duration of dating and some tasty finger food served during the break.

Check-in is on your phone, with no match cards, drink tokens, paper or pens required. Just bring your fully charged phone and your great attitude.

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

The Rose of Australia is an Erskineville institution. Owned and operated by the Leach Family for over 25 years, this is a pub run by a local family for the local community.

Howard's Cantina is located on the first floor of the Rose of Australia Hotel. The Cantina has a casual atmosphere with contemporary design that makes the space perfect for catching up with friends or celebrating special moments.

With a mix of covered outdoor seating and inside space there you'll be spoilt for choice to set your own vibe.

Returning customer? Don't worry. You will never be matched to the same person twice and your post-date feedback is kept confidential. This is for real life and virtual events too. You can book into several events with confidence.

If you buy a ticket for the opposite gender you both save $10.
