20 dates: Speed Dating - SOLD OUT!
Single and fabulous people just like you. In fact, if you are not a social and foxy professional, this really isn’t going to work out. It’s not you, it’s me. No wait, it is you. Sorry! We run events for all ages, so check the age group listed above. As a guide, men tend be on the upper end of the bracket and ladies on the lower end.
Speed dating is the perfect way to meet up to 20 dates in one night. Come with a smile and an open mind. Don’t come with a list of job interview questions and an engagement ring just in case.
When you arrive, our lovely SpeedDater host will welcome you and sign you in. Your badge will match a table in the room and usually the ladies stay seated while the men rotate about every 4 mins when the bell ringa-ding-dings. You will have a card to mark down if you are interested in your dates. It’s very handy if you have a few too many G&Ts, trust us! Just make sure you take the card home with you when you leave.
And after the event? Simply log in with your username and password and click the 'matches' tab. Once you have entered your ticks you will see if you match with anyone. Remember it's FREE to send/read messages to/from all the guests you have met at the event through our secure website. All our events are guaranteed! We’re so confident you’ll meet someone you like, that if you don't your next event is free! What have you got to lose?
The most stylish bars across the UK – where else? We promise to choose venues which are easy to shimmy home from and we always have exclusive use of private rooms so you can flirt in peace. Scroll down to find out more about your venue for this event.

With Girls Aloud’s Sarah Harding as one of its investors, Kanaloa is guaranteed to be hot hot hot. Kanaloa is the sister bar of Mayfair’s Mahiki that serves up the same tiki-themed, beachy breeziness that has proven to be so successful for its older sibling. Walk over the wooden footbridge that’s fringed with foliage and the bar area unfurls in front of you. Wicker tables transport you straight to an upmarket Hawaiian holiday resort.
The atmosphere is fun and friendly – you may find yourself rubbing shoulders with royalty on the dance floor but the vibe is down to earth. We have exclusive use of the "club" bar for your event, which is located on the right hand side as you enter the venue. Your ticket price also includes entry (normally £10) to the club if you want to kick on and make a night of it.
Even though Kanaloa is located only about 8 minutes walk from either Chancery Lane or Farringdon tube stations it is still quite hard to find. Please prepare your journey before travelling.
From Chancery Lane walk down towards Holborn Circus and take a right into St Andrews Street. On your right you will pass a Caffè Nero, keep walking and on your right you will pass the Deloitte offices and a bar called 'The Last'. Keep walking till you have to cross the road (St Andrews turns into Shoe Lane) you will see the library to your right. Bingo - Kanaloa is ahead, just after the library. The entrance is set back slightly from the road so please walk all the way up to avoid missing it.
