(Tired of online dating?)

Social8 is a Social Club for singles aged 30 to 70’s. We are Adelaide’s leading singles social club, with a focus on promoting meaningful, real world interaction - not hiding behind a screen. Our singles are genuine, real, Adelaide people who want to meet in real life, and we've met and vetted them all prior to them joining. Social8 has been operating in Adelaide for over 15 years, so there's a good chance someone you know is a current or past member!



Open Events

Social8 runs open events (open to Social8 members and non-members) about once a month. These events are attended by Social8 hosts, who can help ease your nerves, introduce you to other guests, and answer any questions you have. Events open to everyone are clearly identified on the What’s On page. Last year, over 500 Adelaide singles enjoyed a Social8 event! (And that's during Covid times when people weren't coming out much). Come join us!!


Members Only Events

The members only events are generally smaller (10ish guests) and normally targeted at a certain age range – this is to provide a more intimate environment where you can get to know your fellow members. Check out what events are coming up, or see what we have offered in the past to get an idea of what to expect. Past events hosted include: Speed Trivia Nights, Cocktail Parties, Pub Nights, Cooking Classes, Tennis Days, Running Groups, Valentines Night Party, Band Nights, Winery Tours, Fringe Events, Cafe Lunches, Charity Events, Wine tasting, Festivals, Picnics, Golf, Photography Class, Painting Class and much more.​



Dinners are for 3 men, and 3 women, age matched, with at least 2 people of the opposite gender who you haven't dined with yet. Held on Thursday, Friday or Saturday night, these dinners are perfect for people who want to connect for more than just 5 minutes, who want to be given a chance to show who they really are and who want to get to know others in a relaxed environment. Being part of a group reduces the pressure on YOU to provide all the conversation, and you get to meet a number of other singles in your age range. Safe, fun, easy and non threatening. We also manage number swapping for you after the dinner - no awkward moments of being asked for your number or waiting hoping someone will ask you. 



For those members who are very particular in what they want, or are very time poor. This is a very personal service where we become your private recruitment agency! We go through our members in detail and find those who match your criteria. 



Relationship coaching is available on an individual basis from Social8's previous owner Jane. See here for details.

"As you know xxxx and I have now formed a relationship. I first met xxxx at the Degustation dinner at the Arkaba Hotel and then again on the wine tour. The wine tour was an excellent day. These outings are what other social 8 members have to make an effort to attend. i would and will recommend to any single person to join Social 8. In the six months that I have been with Social 8, I truly have had some interesting dinners meeting many people. I thank you both again for the hard work you do in organising of dinners and social events."
