As the song goes, Summertime and the living’s easy. And we’ve just made it easier still.

Join us at the most hotly anticipated summer singles party in London – Summer in the City.

Join 150+ people for what promises to be an evening of sun soaked socialising and flirtatious fun. But hurry, our events always sell out quickly.

Soak up the rays on the outdoor patio or relax in the cool interior of Holborn’s The Square Pig. With beer, cocktail or Pimms in one hand and lock or keys in the other this will be the most seriously chilled singles party yet.

And yes you heard correctly, we’ll have the best ice breaker – lock and key – to ease you into the mingling mood with plenty of prizes for those who find their unlocked match.

Plus, fun mini speed dating sessions will run throughout the night just for a little taster, you’ll be able to use our unique mobile matching system – Mixeo – to find out who reciprocates your desires, and all this to a summery soundtrack of wonderfully relaxed tunes in the background.

In short, buy your ticket now for what is guaranteed to be the most fun, flirtatious and sun soaked event of the year.

Being single has never been so easy.

Original Dating Presents...
Summer in The City

Join up to 200 single Londoners (equal male/female ratio) for our next big social.

Imagine sipping cool drinks in the warmth of the early evening sun on a lovely open terrace in the heart of London surrounded by a friendly group of Londoners, all single and up for a great night of meeting new people.

Welcome to The Summer in The City Party!

We've exclusively hired a wonderfully relaxed venue, The Square Pig in Holborn, moments from the tube station. This spacious bar has recently been refurbished making it the ideal location for our next summer party.

In tune with the relaxed vibe of this event the entertainment will be provided by a two piece acoustic band. Our lock & key and speed dating icebreakers will ensure everyone gets to meet as many people as possible, right from the start.

The format is simple: Enjoy a few drinks in the evening sun, try our icebreakers and flirt just a bit and you'll have a great time and meet lots of people.

So many in fact, you're almost guaranteed to click with someone.

The lock & key icebreaker explained

Girls get padlocks and guys get keys. The aim? To find a matching lock for your key (or vice versa). In doing so you'll meet loads of people, so many in fact, you're bound to meet at least one person you'll want to see again. This is a very easy way to meet lots of people fast and it's the best icebreaker we've found.

When you find a matching set both you and your 'match' head to our desk where you'll be entered into our Champagne prize draw later in the night.
The more people you meet the more chances you have of winning some bubbly. And meeting someone you click with too. These nights are very, very successful.

Speed dating - all night

We're running speed dating sessions throughout the evening and we've added more sessions so now everyone will be able to try it. Simply sign up on the night and you'll be able to meet loads of people for mini dates lasting just a few minutes further increasing your chances of finding someone you'll get one with. We've got a new and unique system for organising the speed dating sessions at this event which means they works better than ever before.

Matching and 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 numbers. No problem. Using our clever little mobile app, Mixeo you’ll be able to view everyone you met at the event and select them as either a yes, friend or a no.  
Mixeo will let you know when you get a mutual match and you’ll be able to message anyone you matched with via the app. No other company has this and it really sets our events apart.
