Introducing the Midweek Social at Funky Buddha

We’re bringing together 200+ London professionals for one very sociable party and we’d love you to be there! Think 200+ people a very smart venue and crucially, a 50:50 male/female ratio attending. A fantastic night out in the West End except this time everyone is single and looking to meeting people. This is a massively sociable event and you’ll meet loads of people!

Our stunningly cool venue, Funky Buddha is world famous and it’s all ours for the duration of this 3 hour party. Because this event is all about meeting new people the background music played at a level designed for serious socialising. Rather lower than the venue is used to but enough to guarantee a great atmosphere. No other dating company runs events in venues as cool as this!

Here’s how this works

To get the party started the first drink is on us! We’re providing a welcome cocktail (worth £14.95) on arrival to get everyone in the party mood. We’ll even throw in a few canapés! We’ve exclusively hired the venue for the duration of our event so everyone you meet is there to meet new people. You might like to bring a wingman/woman or two or go solo like the social butterfly you are (after a drink or two!)

Optional speed dating

For added flirting potential we’re running several speed dating sessions throughout the night. These are run on a first come, first served basis and the session times will be available on the night. Simply turn up and take part! This event is open to a wider age range that usual so we’ll offer speed dating for separate sessions for both the twenties and thirties and thirties and forties age groups.

Icebreaker hosts

Our rather dashing hosts will be on hand throughout the night should you need them to make introductions, pass messages or any other such task you can think of that might grease the wheels a little.

Drinks promotions

You might think drinks at a top Mayfair club will be priced to match. Worry not, we’ve negotiated discounted rates on beers, wine and soft drinks for the duration of the party.

Online messaging

You're bound to meet loads of people at this party, that's guaranteed, but it's not always so easy to ask for phone numbers. No problem! Simply upload your photo you'll be able to contact anyone you met the next day via our messaging system. This way there's no pressure to get numbers on the night, our website becomes your little black book! The perfect mix of real life and online dating.
