Why choose an in-person Toronto speed dating event with Flare? Well, for starters, we obsess over our dating events and aim to provide unique one-night experiences. Our events have an energetic, exciting, and fast-paced dynamic that steers clear of traditional speed dating tropes.

Speed dating is more than just cycling through people with bland, forced conversation.  In-person speed dating is about experiences!

Our events are structured to give attendees an opportunity to meet people and have fun doing it.

We offer competitive rates and work with local Toronto venues to offer an engaging atmosphere, delicious food, and a wide drink selection. We’ve dated here—we know where to go.

NEW! Toronto Mixology Speed Dating Events

Proudly announcing a brand new way to date with Flare, we introduce you to our Mixology & Mingle dating events! With the perfect combination of Mixology and Speed dating we offer you an event like no other out there as you are guided through the steps to make the perfect cocktail (with non-alcoholic options available).

Prepare yourself for an experience of the senses and mind as you learn to professionally craft two signature Nickel 9 cocktails, taught first hand by master mixologists! “The Hidden Temple” which is crafted with their Hidden Temple Gin and “Sweet & Spicy” which is created with their Northern Temple Vodka and a wedge of watermelon for an oh so refreshing taste.

So… how does speed dating work?

Once everyone is in attendance and settled in, we like to start our Toronto speed dating events with a little ice breaker game to warm everyone up. Perhaps a bit of trivia or a game of two truths and a lie? It’s important to us that no two events are alike as our team constantly tries new games and ice-breakers at every event.

After the ice breakers are finished, let’s start the speed dating! You’ll be seated in front of a potential match with 8 minutes to get to know one another. Feel free to talk about whatever you want, but we always recommend you keep it lighthearted and professional (don’t do anything we wouldn’t do). Once time is up, the ladies remain seated and the gents move down a spot and take a seat at the table of their next potential match.

Remember to take time at the start of each date to write down your dater’s name and, at the end, mark off if you felt it was a good match or not. Once you’ve spoken to everyone, that’s it, you’re done—great job! Make sure your scorecard is filled out correctly, hand it back to our host, and leave the rest to us.

However, just because the event is over doesn’t mean your night has to be! Feel free to stay for a drink (or two). Kick back, relax, and maybe chat further with some of the other daters from our speed dating event. Within 72 hours you will hear back from us via email with exciting news about your potential matches from our speed dating event.
