What we're about

Welcome to Melbourne Social,

We like to think of ourselves as the place you will feel welcome and make a ton of friends, if you've moved from interstate or travelling, or a local, this group will help you create the first steps to new friendships.

We've been hosting events since 2013 and we make it a point to make everyone feel welcome, its all about creating a community that you can call your home. We originated from couch surfing, where we believe all events should be free with no obligations, just great company and conversations!

A great place is to begin is our Friday Night Events (where you'll meet tons of new people & usually our most busy) or come along to one of our more unique meetups like the bowling night on Sundays, movie nights on Mondays or one of our picnics!

We are all about organizing all sorts of social events in Melbourne!

Join us for a fun night at Queen of Spades, playing board games and eating yummy food! This is a great event if you want to try something different other than just bar meetups! :) We will come here every fortnight, all you need is a competitive spirit and a donation of $5 to play the games, given to the venue when you arrive (so they can maintain their collection etc. no money is made on my end!)

Social Bowling with Melbourne Social 🎳

Strike Melbourne Central

🎳🎳🎳🎳🎳 Every Sunday evening since the dawn of time, a group of friends, meetup crew and the occasional Vikings gather at the Strike Bar. We kick back, socialise and wait for our bowling lanes to be ready. The meeting place is the pool tables inside Strike (on the left of the entrance). If you think might get completely lost and risk ending up in Canberra, comment here where you are and we will try to find you! As its a very crowded day, we would need to hand over our list and bowling tickets by 7pm.. So please dont be late :) Also note, dont forget to carry a photo ID, strike bar now has a strict ID rule after 7pm. Cheers, Raheel
