Event details


Merry Kissmas
It’s the most wine-derful time of the year to search for that someone special.
Here at SpeedDater, we run the GREATEST singles parties in London. Our parties attract guests who prefer to meet their potential match in a more social environment and even better, the room will be filled with around 150 other singles to get to know!
The venue is a hidden gem in the heart of the City, the Samuel Pepys offers spectacular views from its unique riverside location on the north bank of the Thames. Enjoy A mistle-toast to the festive season, finding that spark and chemis-tree with other wonderful singles.

Lock and Key Party
The evening will begin with our entertaining ice-breaking game to help introduce you to as many singles as possible. We’ve organised a lock and key ice-breaker, the perfect way to spark up that initial conversation. All women will be given locks, while the men will be given keys. Your job is to find the one that matches with yours to unlock and Maybe you will find "Love at frost sight!"

Optional Speed Dating
In a separate room, speed dating sessions will be in full swing. You’ll be able to sign up at the event when registering.The speed dating sessions are a perfect way to get to know the other guests in three-minute intimate bursts. The 30-minute speed dating sessions are designed only as a 'taster' at the party. Remember, our speed dating sessions are always popular, so we would advise you to arrive by 7:15 pm to guarantee yourself a place. The sessions are booked on a first-come, first-serve basis.

And after the event?
The day after your speed dating event, you can log in to our secure website and click the matches tab. You'll be able to reconnect with everyone via our site, from 11 am the following morning, for FREE! At Speeddater, we understand how important post-event communication is to your success story. Don’t forget about Speeddater’s guarantee - if you didn’t meet someone you liked the first time, your next singles event is free! What have you got to lose?

Please note: Pay on door payments are charged at the maximum ticket price, and not the early bird discount. To take advantage of the early bird offer, you must pre-book and prepay using a debit/credit card.

With spectacular views across the Thames that take in a range of iconic London buildings – including Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre & The Tate Modern – Samuel Pepys is a hidden gem in the heart of the City. One of only two original public houses facing the river in this area, it takes advantage of it’s location with balcony seating & floor to ceiling windows in the bar & restaurant. Recently refurbished in early 2015, the interior comprises exposed brickwork, designer wallpaper & contemporary art.

SpeedDater has exclusive use of the entire venue for our parties. Please note this venue does not have a cloakroom. A rail will be provided free of charge, however it will be unstaffed and is to be used at your own risk.

Also please be aware that food will not be available at this event. The venue is closed during the day, and will be opening especially for our guests at 7pm. We therefore do not advise guests to arrive early for a pre-party drink.

Travel information

Samuel Pepys is a short stroll from Mansion House tube. A few members have said they have found the venue difficult to find, so please print off the following instructions: turn RIGHT out of Mansion House tube. You will now be on Garlick Hill. Walk a few minutes down Garlick Hill till you reach the end. Directly in front of you will be the busy main road Upper Thames Street. Look to your right, you need to cross the road by going over the footbridge. Once crossed, step off the stairs and go to your left. Stew Lane is a small lane on the left. Walk all the way down it and Samuel Pepys is on the right.
