Welcome to Tablemates
Melbourne’s Dinner Club for Singles
Tablemates Premier Dinner Club for Singles is a fun, relaxed, successful and easy way for you to meet that someone special and new friends for all areas of Melbourne, for all age-groups 35+.
Your inquiry is free and confidential….
If the following applies to you, why not become a part of Tablemates?
- You have a healthy and positive attitude about meeting a partner and new friends.
- You are looking for an easy way to meet that special someone and maybe new friends along the journey – real faces in real places – pre-organised just for you.
- You find that large singles events can be daunting and unpredictable. The organisers do not usually ensure even numbers of men and women and you see the same faces each time.
- You’ve tried online dating sites and have decided they’re not your “thing”.
- You prefer a fun, relaxed, casual way of meeting a potential partner or new friends, such as in a small group of six singles (3 women & 3 men in your age-group – new people each time) enjoying good food and good conversation in quality, affordable Melbourne restaurants. Easy!
How do we offer you a better experience than other singles dinner clubs?
⇒ Our once-only Membership Fee is the most competitive in Melbourne. It also includes a personal registration meeting to provide a more refined level of service.
⇒ Your Tablemates Membership is ongoing. You don’t need to renew. You can suspend or re-activate your membership at any time without further cost.
⇒ We meet all membership applicants personally to offer a complete, quality level of service. If you join a dinner club over the phone rather than in-person, how is any effort toward group compatibility possible? We provide a value-added service, including our time and resources to meet with you personally.
⇒ You will meet 5 new people at each dinner (3 women and 3 men). We ensure that you won’t meet the same people of the opposite gender more than once at our dinners. Following each dinner, you can exchange contact details with any members in confidence. You then meet 5 new people at the next dinner.
Tablemates has been a successful dinner club for singles since 1994.
Since then, we have helped countless members form long-term relationships through our service. Many of them are now happily married and have children. Others have formed long-term friendships and broadly extended their social circle. Our members are often time-poor and concerned about how they spend their leisure time and with whom. Attention-to-detail and quality of service form the backbone of our business. We pride ourselves on being Melbourne’s premier dinner club by creating ongoing value for our members.
Since our inception 22 years ago, Tablemates have personally interviewed all members and approximately 30% of members join through referral and word-of-mouth. Our members meet in pre-organized dinner groups of six people (always 3 of each gender) to enjoy good food and good conversation – a relaxed, fun and easy opportunity to meet and get to know other singles.
It’s simple to join Tablemates….
A personal registration interview is included with all Tablemates Memberships. We arrange a time convenient for you to drop by our office and complete a personal profile about your hobbies and interests, individual circumstances, discuss your personality type and answer any questions you may have.
