Speed Dating in Balham

Speed dating is all about having a fun night out and meeting new people, face to face in the easiest possible way. Focus on enjoying yourself, don't take it too seriously and you'll have a great night.


How it works

When you arrive at the venue you’ll meet our friendly hosts. We’ll briefly explain the format of the event and you’ll be straight into your first date.

You’ll have 4 minutes to meet and briefly get to know each person. We’ve found that 4 minutes is just long enough to find out if you'd like to see someone again but not too long if you don't.

Girls stay at the same table throughout the evening and guys move around the room.


After meeting each person, you need to decide if they are a ‘yes’ a ‘no’ or a ‘friend’ and jot down any notes to help you remember them. You'll find out who you matched with the next day and you can message your matches via our app or website.

We'll have a short break halfway through for you to top up your drinks.


After the event

The speed dating is over when you’ve met everybody, but this is often when the fun really starts. Most people stay at the bar for a few drinks and get to know the people they liked a little better.

If you don't meet someone you want to see again at one of our speed dating events your next speed dating event is free.
