One of our favourite areas to host Speed Dating is The City. This may sound odd but there are some hidden gems among the towers of bankers, insurance companies, Lawyers, Accountants and offices and general big commerce.


It's because of, not in spite of, the dominance of finance and general work gloom that Speed Dating in the City is so much fun.

Why Speed Dating in the City?

Convenience is the key to The City's Speed Dating success. Because of the proximity of so many offices, speed dating in The City has to offer respite - an immediate escape and strong alternative - from the drudgery of office life.

No more than ten minutes walk from any office in the City, and for those outside London, no more than two trains will put you right in the heart of what is becoming a bit of a speed dating hub.

Who goes Speed Dating in The City?

The beauty of Speed dating in the City is its accessibility.

There is of course the usual clutch of 25-35 yr old City workers but because it is so accessible, Speed Daters come from as far afield as Chelmsford to Reading, Milton Keynes to Guildford.

This makes for an absolutely unique speed dating City experience. Add to this the fact that all speed daters are there to let off steam amid the towering reminders of work and you have an extraordinary speed dating vibe that yells fun and sociability at every turn.

In short, speed daters in The City live to let their hair down.

What sort of venues are there for Speed Dating in the City?

The City has, sometimes justifiably, a reputation for drunken raucous executives displaying an arrogance matched only in premier league football.  But most City Speed Date venues are there for respite, not reminder.

Think plush private rooms and bars in a luxurious champagne tinged basement venue at more affordable prices than almost anywhere else in Central London and you start to get a feel for Speed Dating in the City.

Also, most Speed Date venues in the City are used to housing large corporate events so almost all have separate bars manned by their own staff to make that post-work speed date and drinks that little bit easier.

Isn't the City a bit staid and suited?

Not at all. There is daytime city and night time city. Night time city sees the mental suits come off and speed dating in The City is more often than not a late night affair. Most speed date venues hold late licences, City speed daters want to let off steam in a relaxed environment and a collegial atmosphere means one of the most friendly and fun Speed Dating experiences available.

So, convenience, an exceptional way to end the working week, and a lively fun and very mixed crowd make Speed Dating in the City a very different kind of night.

ORIGINAL DATING IN THE PRESS

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.
