    Hi there,

    I've just started a new local speed dating company in N.Ireland called QuestionDate and although we are in the early stages of development (creating a website etc), I was hoping to find suitable venues to hold the events ASAP as some require up to two months notice.

    I was wondering if anyone had any advice on the best ways of approaching local bars/restaurants in order to hire part of their venue for a speed dating event and potentially doing so for free?

    I'll be bringing up to 40 single people to the events so can offer a considerable number of beverage sales from that alone, not to mention the publicity around the event itself.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Stephen

    Just pop in and ask ;) many Bars and Clubs have a Function room which they may even let out free if your bringing enough people to their venue. have a chat with the landlord and tell him you'll do it on their quiet night and he should either let you use the room for free or at a very reduced discount.

    plus its better for first time nerves if people could buy a drink before or after the event
