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.Our personable hosts will assist you with your Speed Phoenix 'Date-Mate' Scorecard.Lovely venues and our lovely Hosts to assist you with anything or anyone. Rewarding lovely daters with discounts and complimentary events while saying no thank you to anyone we don't think you'll fancy meeting. Most American speed dating parties are a bit like being at a college job fair.Complete with stop watches, whistles and a footie captain yelling “times up” in yer face!We at Speed Phoenix Dating, do things a wee bit differently. We are British founded and inspired but our daters are just like you. We tend to draw a crowd that is intelligent and amusing, sophisticated and adventurous, while always being cheeky.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?
Gone are the name-tags, shouting and over-the-top party trimmings.
We say yes to a very few - limiting it to locales that are at once casually hip and romantically inspiring. As a reporter for LA Talk said, “ I walked through the venue without even noticing the tables of daters; Speed LA events are so chic and low key you might just walk right by.” We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. Much like a private club, not every dater is for us.
We are the only organization to routinely screen daters we feel may not be a good fit for our clients.
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 11 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.
