About the event

*Brand New Saturday event*

Saturday nights are perfect for speed dating & we're excited to be back in the City.

Spend the evening with us as we take over the exclusive bar at our fantastic new venue, The Happenstance.

You’ll meet typically 15-20 people during this event, each one for just four minutes. The perfect length of time to decide if you’d like to see someone again and not too long if you don’t. It’s a simple and exciting way to meet a lot of people in one fun night.

The next day you'll find out who you mutually matched with via our website. You'll get in touch again via our private messaging system and you'll be meeting again for real dates in no time.

Our venue is moments from St Paul's, a great spot if you want to stay on for drinks.

  It was great fun and there were some really nice ladies abd very diverse lives and backgrounds. It was really intense talking for 4 minutes x 12 times in a row but I’m a Gemini abd we are quite good at talking. Lots of interesting people to talk to. I said yes to two ladies as they were the ones I felt most attracted to. Thank you. S

  It was fun!! Definitely going again. Maybe increase the dating time from 5 minutes to 8/10 minutes? And provide us with note pads and pen/pencil?

Original Dating reply

Hi Kane, glad you enjoyed it! We don't provide pens and paper as it's possible to record the people you like directly into our web app. Everyone you met has a profile. It's quicker and saves paper and pens being wasted! As for the time we give, speed dating is all about lots of super quick meetings so we can't change that!

  It was really well run and I thought it was great I "dated" lots of new and interesting people. The bar menu was boring though, but I prefer to be sober anyway, so I guess that worked quite well. I like that we had our own private space. It was really relaxed.

  The host was so amazing! She explained everything really well and was super likeable and made everyone feel very comfortable! The age range was great, the venue was really hid, relaxed and reasonably priced. The bartenders were so lovely and likeable! The only thing was probably the quality of men, but I understand it’s hard to control who signs up. More friend material then future partner material.

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.
