About the event

SOLD OUT EVENT! - 150 PEOPLE BOOKED!

An awesome venue and the best opportunity to meet other London professionals. This is Mingle at the Mal.

We pride ourselves on running events at some of London’s most celebrated venues for those wanting more than just another singles night. We understand what is needed to create memorable and successful events.

The prestigious Malmaison is the setting for our first summer event. You’re invited to join 150 like-minded professionals for an evening of subtle flirtation, relaxed fun and good conversation. And we have the perfect ice breaker – lock and key – to help things along.

Ladies take a padlock and gentleman some keys. The aim is to find your match by chatting to as many people as possible. Once you find one, you’ll both be entered into our champagne prize draw, be given a new set of locks and keys and away you go again.

Lock and key really is the ideal way to make that first introduction. The more people you meet, the greater your chance of success.

We’ll also be running 5 quick and fun speed date sessions just so you can say you’ve given it a go – After all, everyone’s curious right?

But, apart from high quality venues, fantastic entertainment and a young professional crowd, what really makes us stand out is our unique matching app – Mixeo.

The first of its kind, Mixeo allows you to select who you’d like to see again and the next day automatically matches you with those who would also like to see you. You can then contact each other through the app. It’s just one more reason why Mingle at the Mal is an event not to be missed.

  Fun event, but it would've been better if the dates were a couple of minutes longer. You also need at least one more person moving things along because the guys in front on me were lingering beyond their time slot. Also it was often difficult to hear the dates.  
Posted: 01/09/2021

Original Dating reply

Hi James, all valid feedback but do remember that speed dating is about very brief introductions - a taster if you will - the longer date happens afterwards!

HOW IT WORKS

The beauty of Speed Dating London lies in its no-nonsense approach. You take an equal number of single girls and guys, put them in a room and give them a few minutes to chat with every other member of the opposite sex.

When you get there

Original speed dating events in London normally begin at 7.30pm. You will need to register with our hosts and to begin with they will issue you with a score sheet. This will help you to keep track of the singles that you would like to meet again and perhaps go on a date with. After a short period of mingling, your host for the evening who will run through detailed instructions and give you your starting position if you are a guy or table for the event if you are a girl.

Meet & Mingle

A London speed dating event is split into two halves, each lasting around an hour, there will be an interval at half time of about 15 minutes for speed dating London. You will have between 4 and 5 minutes with each person, after which you need to tick a box on your score sheet - "yes, I would like to meet this person again" or "no. Thanks but no thanks". Or "friend" if you'd like to get to know them platonically. Make sure that you do this after each date to keep track. Afterwards there is an opportunity for everyone to meet and mingle informally - this is often where the real action begins, so make sure you don't disappear too quickly!

Complete your score sheet

After the event you simply tick who you liked on the Original Dating website and the site works about your matches automatically. If the dates you have ticked as a "yes" have reciprocated you have a match. You will be able to view the first names and message them via our site online without revealing your email address until you are ready to. You'll be having proper first dates in no time.
