Dinners and Events

Gold - join our Social 8 Events and Dinner Club. Participate in dozens of events and activities and attend our premium hand selected dinners at lovely local Adelaide restaurants. An easy way to make new friends, network and meet potential dates.

Current Special - $250 for 6 months.


Our exciting dinners have been operating for 10 years. Held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 7.00pm. Dinners are usually for six people (gender balanced) however often can be for 4, 5, 6, 7 or even 8 people. If we believe it's likely to be a good mix, we set the dinner up regardless of numbers. This is perfect for people who want to connect more than just for 5 minutes, who want to be given a chance to show who they really are and who want to get to know others over a fabulous dinner. Being part of the 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. 

The dinner co-ordination fee is $33 (plus food and beverages) for each dinner.

Event costs range from $15 to $100 depending on the event. Gold Membership includes access to all events.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and helping you achieve a rocking social life!

Our program has been enjoying terrific success now for over ten years. The secret to our success is easy. We are committed to three areas. A strong filter system on who our members are, we promise to only 'take your money', if we believe you are likely to enjoy social fun with our members and achieve that which you desire; providing a comfortable environment enabling you to relax and be yourself; and lastly provide as many opportunities for you to meet as many people as possible.


For you to enjoy success in your social life, we believe you need to be empowered to be yourself. We are all special and unique and possess many qualities that are not instantly apparent. We simply need the opportunity to be able to present how wonderful we are. This is difficult to achieve in the pubs and clubs or on the internet. Social 8 helps you to do this at our member only dinners and events plus through our hand selected introductions. We encourage you to keep an open mind as to who potentially your life partner could be, together with encouraging you to network and expand your social circle through our members, providing you with more opportunities to meet new people. The more people you meet, the greater your chance of success.
