Ladies and Gentlemen,

Forget what you've heard about speed dating.
Forget your last experience at a dating event.
And definitely forget going to loud bars or online dating to meet someone interesting.

Meet People Chicago brings you an exclusive, unforgettable experience that completely reinvents the singles event: Easy Dating at The Bedford.

Enjoy 15 mini-dates with charming young professionals inside a beautiful, one-of-a-kind bank vault retrofitted into a magnificent and elegant bar. The vault has been exclusively reserved for this event to provide an intimate atmosphere so that you can focus on what just might be the first date with the love of your life.

You’ll begin the evening mingling with sophisticated singles while you enjoy a tantalizing cocktail to melt away the day. Break the ice in a relaxed environment and start exploring who lights your fire. Once you’ve worked the room, you’ll take a seat on the plush, lounge sofas alongside your first date.

Bedford Vault

As you and your dates sit amid the elegant copper safety deposit boxes that once housed prized treasures and secrets, you can share your own secrets and find your own treasures. Keep the libations flowing and the sparks flying as you experience multiple dates and explore connections with intriguing people. When you find someone who makes your heart skip a beat, mark them down on your date card and let us take care of the rest.

We take away the pressure and the stress by connecting you and setting up your follow-up date. The rest is up to you.

Bedford Vault


So what are you waiting for? Be bold, take a chance and find out what secrets are locked away waiting for you in the vault!

Special Libations:

  • $5 draft beers

  • $6 prosecco

  • $7 ketel one cocktails

And, if that's not enough, we're going the extra mile and giving you a discount to three fantastic options for your second, intimate, one-on-one date guaranteed to not only make a great first impression, but one that is unforgettable. 

Date Option 1 - Enjoy a Soothing and Uniquely Relaxing Night at Tropikava Kafe

Take your date on a relaxing and truly unique experience as you take a sip of all natural, delicious juice mixed with a special ingredient called Kava. When mixed properly, the result is a relaxing and euphoric drink that elevates the senses and has a number of wonderful health benefits like reducing stress and mental focus. TropiKava has a BYOB policy so bring a bottle of wine if you wish and step inside this hidden gem to have a soothing night of great conversation and a new experience.

Date Option 2 - Race to the Top, Rock Climbing at Brooklyn Boulders

Test your dates heart, mind and body in this beautifully sculpted and massive 25,000 sq. ft. rock climbing facility. Ditch the traditional date, get your harness on and conquer your mountain. This date offers a chance to not only get some exercise in, but a fun and unique way to get to know your date and how they think. So whether you work together or race to the top, this date will definitely be one that'll make you stand out.

Date Option 3 - Enjoy Wine and Create a Masterpiece at Pinot's Palette 

Are you more of an artsy type? Someone who enjoys a creative experience? Perfect. Enjoy a cocktail, a cold beer or pour a glass of wine, grab a paintbrush and let your inner Van Gogh come out as you and your date sip your favorite libation and paint all night. This date is another great and light-hearted way to break the ice while doing something fun and different. Capture the romance of the night in a beautiful canvas and take home more than just a painted frame, take home a unique first date experience. 

**Group Special** - Don't go alone. When you bring a friend or two, we give you a 20% discount.

    Tiffini // Meet People Chicago Member

  • "Meet People is a fantastic social group. I was brand new to Chicago in June (knowing all of 2-3 people), and decided to give it a try after being here for five days. The people are friendly, fun and it's pretty easy to just bounce around meeting new people. I HIGHLY recommend you give this group a try if you're on the fence. Peter does a fantastic job organizing, and it's always good to get out and explore/drink in new areas of Chicago with people just looking to have a good time."
