Living in Sydney and looking to meet new people?

Whether you’ve just arrived or have been here a while, Sydney expats tend to be a pretty sociable bunch, always looking for ways to meet new people. Cue Sydney Soirée – a night of dining, drinking, socialising and maybe even a spot of romancing if you remember to look for it.

All you need to do to get involved is find three buddies/Sydney siders whom you know vaguely (good enough right), sign up on the Sydney Soirée website and they’ll team you up with three houses of the opposite sex to spend the evening with.

For the 2015 Valentine’s event, the groups of guys were responsible for hosting the dinner parties – all the girls had to do was turn up in the pre-organised taxis (oh and bring the wine of course)! This can only mean one thing – it’s the girls’ turn next time – and so the hosting alternates back and forth throughout the year.

Once each group have met and dined, everyone jumps into more cabs and is no-doubt-drunkenly-delivered to and reunited at the raucous after party at the Jam Gallery in Bondi junction. It’s a night to remember and if you don’t, the alcohol will no doubt be to blame.
