About the event

*** OVER 250 PEOPLE NOW BOOKED - BOOK NOW! ***

Some things in life are just better done off line and meeting people is definitely one of those things. Introducing our Late Summer Offline Dating Party.

This party, taking place at The Drift located in the Iconic Herron Tower, will bring together over 200 people to party, drink, laugh and flirt outrageously for one unbelievably sociable night.

Meeting people is super easy thanks to our lock and key icebreaker.

Girls get the padlocks and guys get the keys. You’ll meet loads of people as you seek out the matching key to your lock.

When you find a match, head over to our hosts to enter the prize draw. The more matches you find, the more people you’ll meet. It’s a very simple but super effective way of meeting lots of people.

It’s also a lot of fun and believe it or not, nothing breaks the ice quite like locks and keys.

Our venue for this party is The Drift, a brand-new bar located in The Herron Tower moments from Liverpool Street station. We’ve hired the whole place exclusively for this event. It's perfect for this party with enough space for mingling and a few quieter areas too.

Jump on our website after the event to select everyone you want to see again. The next day at 5pm we’ll show you who you mutually matched with. Use our messenger to arrange to meet up again. Around 85% of people get a match.

Book now and join us for this party. Tickets are selling fast and you'll meet so many people you're almost guaranteed to click with someone. Book now!

  Was a lovely night. Perhaps a little too crowded, the bar struggled to keep up. Wish the background music was a little quieter as we're there to chat not dance.

Original Dating reply

Thanks Matthew. It sure was a busy one. Point taken on the music. Sometimes our venues creep the levels up without us noticing. Many thanks!

DG Verified Attendee
  All hosts were very welcoming and friendly but didn’t find anyone interesting enough to go for a date. The blankets for outdoor mingling was quite a brilliant touch on a chilly breeze.

Thanks so much DG - do come again, we'll have another huge bunch of people to meet next month!

  There were loads of people and a good range. A welcome drink on arrival would have been ideal yo save the massive queue at the bar, but the hosts were lovely.

Original Dating reply

Really happy to see you enjoyed the event. We'll take on board your comments and speak to the bar to increase staffing at the next event.

Lynnette Verified Attendee
  The Anthologist was a great venue for the event. Decent mixed age group crowd and a few guys in my age range. I met and spoke to some lovely people and I would recommend this to a friend.

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.
