Speed Dating ~ Older Women, Younger Men
According to the Office for National Statistics 26 percent of women now marry a partner younger than themselves. And more than a quarter of these women married a partner at least six years younger!
Raise your glasses you fine and eligible singles, you are in for a great night out. Meet like-minded members face to face at SpeedDater Events. Sip, flirt and laugh your way through a singles event like no other.
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 15 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?

Jewel is one of Soho's most spectacular and opulent bars. We have exclusive use of the Ruby Room for this event.
The Ruby Room is a decadently designed lounge bar, which draws its inspiration from the Far East. Beautiful antique statues welcome you into this deep red and black boudoir. Gold leaf and soft lighting create a warm and intimate atmosphere. The Ruby Room is located upstairs - access is from the stairwell towards the back on the venue on the left hand side.
Jewel has a late licence until 1am and all guests are welcome to stay on in the main bar after the event, which is absolutely stunning - complete with ornate crystal chandeliers cascading from the ceiling. Victoria and David Beckham are among the many celebrities who have chosen Jewel for their own private functions!
The entrance to Ruby Room is tucked away at the back of the venue. Please ask a member of staff for directions if you cannot locate the event.
Please note - in this venue we use the Ruby Room and also the Boutique and Parlour rooms. We sometimes get moved last minute, so if your event is not in the specified room, please check the other room. If in doubt, please ask a member of staff to direct you.
Jewel is located right on Piccadilly Circus, next to the Barclays and Boots. Parking is not advisable due to the central London location but there are carparks around this area if needed.
