the whole experience was really bad! just to pay for the event I had to call 3 times the customer service. They changed room and instead of being in a nice one we were in a ugly and small room without air con. Few of them apparently cancelled the profile before having the chance to rate them. Few of the girls thought some of them were actor, and in fact they had no profile! I am arguing to have a refund! Terrible! Definitely to avoid!!!

Had great fun, so up beat. Not at all what I expected. The place was full of really nice guys, all chating and having a laugh. Plenty of dancing too. The lock and kep game is a great ice breaker, I even won a bottel of champagna. The photo wall is a good way to let someone know you like them without having to come right out and tell them. Went out on two dates after the event on anotheer night. Really clicked with one of them. Wish me luck! xxx

I went speed dating with a mate and had a really good night. The host made us feel really welcome and comfortable. We met some really nice girls at the event. The event ran really smoothly and seemed very well organised! I met up with one of the girls after the event as well.

Went speed dating last night at Grace Bar. It was my first time, and I chose this company as they have the nicest venues in London on their schedule. As I expected, a lovely venue, but also a really decent crowd (apart from one guy ha ha!!). The host was very professional and it was very social but organised. No cringe moments. If you havent done it you need to try it. Even if you dont fancy anyone its a different night out well worth trying.

Abacus salsa party was fun - busier than i was expecting and it was a nice crowd. Glad I gave the salsa a go. Was actually very good, not too hard, even for me!! Why is it ladies always come in groups, what to do if you like two from same group?
Steve - Londo Party - Tue 18 Oct
Was an absolute joke, not in a good way, when i got there they thought id cancelled- id done no such thing. then the night was awful. and they have the cheek to sign you up to a repeat subscribtion to the site at FULL PRICE WITHOUT warning, then you have to seriously jump through hoops to unsubsribe.be careful at the end when u think uve done it all, theres still that bit more sending an email form your registered address to geT out of it.

Really good fun! Speeddater use some of the nicest bars in London have been a few times now and will continue to go as I know Mr Right is waiting for me at an event soon!
Charlotte - Sound - Sat 30 Apr
Was a little apprehensive as I went on my own, shouldnt have worried the host had everything very well organised. I had a wonderful evening talking to some lovely men. My only complaint is that the dates couldnt last all night...
Anna - Kanaloa - Sat 30 Apr
Great fun, went with 3 friends and we have all met up with guys since the event (thankfully none of us picked the same guy!) Will definitely be going again if things dont work out -)
Caroline - Bond/24 - Sat 30 Apr
I went to Firefly on New Years Eve with some friends & we had the best night ever!! I can honestly say that Ive not had that much male attention in a very long time... & it wasnt only me that went home feeling satisfied! The whole event was organised, also with lots of fun things to do.

I attended the Birmingham Grad Pro event at Utopia Bar and was very surprised by the turn out. 19 guys turned up which was great. I will definately be booking another event with them letting my friends know about them too. Great night. Thanks Guys!

SpeedDater & Cosmopolitan/Mens Health party rocked!!!!! love the venue, sexy crowd and was blown away by the goody bag. anyone know when the next one is?
Alison. Cosmo Party @ Studio Valbonne, October 2010 - Tue 30 Nov
I had a really good night at an event at Sound in London, the organisers were really friendly and helpful and I met about 11 really hot girls, and I have since met up with 4 of them! I would definately recommend speed dater to everyone, The host Dani was so accommodating and went out of her way to ensure everyone had a good night! Good night all round and hopefully I have met the women of my dreams in Stacey!
Tony - Sound London - Mon 11 Oct
its easy to see why this company is the biggest in the uk. ive been to 2 london parties and both were very busy packed with a great crowd and set in fantastic venues. my only minor complaint was the speed dating sessions were quite loud, but when its a busy event i guess you have to expect that. better than being small and quiet i guess. well done speeddater, keep it up!
Tony, Maida Vale London - Fri 1 Oct
My first experiance went really well, and the people were interesting. The host was very friendly which helped me relax. Got a few ticks and am going on a second date soon. Success!
Mel, Grace Bar London - Fri 1 Oct
Went to a Speed dater event last week, had an awesome time. Very busy, and really hot guys in a great venue as it was so central. Host was lovely, she explained the whole process to me as soon as i arrived which made me feel really at ease. Cannot wait to go to my next Speed Dater event.
Imo - London - Tue 28 Sep
I went to a Speed Dater event last week and couldnt believe how much I enjoyed it! The venue was really lively, and the Speed Dater host made you feel welcom unlike others ive been to where they appear to judge you. I got to meet lots of cute guys, 4 minutes never felt so short! Afterwards you just have to tick who you liked and your profile highlights your matches..so simple! Cant wait to go to my next event!!
Imogen - Firefly - Tue 28 Sep
Really good idea and is a lot more fun then I thought it would be. I have booked my next event already.
Speeddater - Tue 28 Sep
Great night, superb organisation and a very relaxed atmosphere. It was my first night speed dating, and I have to admit I was a little nervous, but the host put me at ease and even gave me a few tips! Ill definitely be returning.
Darren - Fri 24 Sep
SpeedDater & Metro Newspaper party was BRILLIANT!!!! first event ive been to, saw it advertised in Metro and thought why not! Great crowd, very busy - i think over 400 people, and the venue was stunning. well done. do another one!!!!
Jackie, Nw6 - Mon 20 Sep
Dreadful experience. Host never turned up and never let us know. only 6 women to 7 men. Bad turnout at most of their speed dating events. Getting a refund is very difficult. Would not recommend them.
Jen, Speed Dating, Reading - Sun 8 Aug
0 out of 5 - turned up for an event in Reading on Tuesday and the Host failed to turn up, hadnt advised us or the bar! When trying to complain it took over an hour to speak to someone and as soon as I mentioned a compplaint they said it was a bad line and I got cut off! After several emails they have refunded my money but have refused to accept any further responsibility. Do not use speed dater they really dont care - customer service awful!
Mark - Ivory Lounge, Reading - Sun 1 Aug
I went to a Speeddater event the other night with a girlfriend and had a fabulous time. There were 17 guys and 16 girls so we only had to sit out for one date, but that was great as I could write down notes on my score card. I also loved the venue, such a great vibe in there. I would definitely recommend it!
Jenny - Kanaloa, London - Mon 28 Jun
This company has the nicest venues listed on their site. i have been to one event and was very impressed. everyone was very friendly and chatty and the host ran it perfectly. i would recommend this company for sure.
Jess, 24 Bar In Soho - Thu 24 Jun
very impressed by the event at kanaloa i recently attended. the bar is the sister club to mahiki so the event sold out a drew a great crowd. stayed on with the girls after and had a dance. watch out though, drinks are a bit pricey! but worth it for such a cool venue. speed dater def choose the best venues in london.
Sian, London, March 2010 - Wed 24 Mar
Hey i just wanted to make a quick note that the event was brilliant!! A special thanks to Dani the events coordinator who really made the night - i will definately recommend to others
Melissa Dauria : Onanon - Thu 3 Dec
i went to the november party at abbey and had a great time. it was my first time so i went with a friend and after a few drinks we both agreed it was a lot of fun. not to mention a big confirdence boost! we have already booked to come back. we are going to the NYE party at the same venue so join us there!!
Louise, Abeey Party, November - Wed 2 Dec
i have been to many different companies but speeddater always has the largest events with a pretty equal split. their parties are particularly good, you literally will meet hundreds of people in one night.
James, London - Tue 14 Jul
Alaisa, can't have been speeddater wine tasting as the total group size is about 20 so its impossible to get 10 ladies more! I have been twice now and at both events there were 2 more ladies than men, but you chat in groups and not one on one so it didn't matter. I've already booked my third wine tasting event for this year with speeddater. Better than speed dating, more social and relaxed. Highly recommended!
Louise. Wine Tasting, The Punch Tavern - Wed 1 Jul
Not the same since ben went off to do his own thing. Numbers down from last year. Guys still awful though :(
Alaisa, Glasgow - Tue 30 Jun
I went to an event in Brighton at Koba. The venue is really cool, and it was good the speeddating was in a seperate room at the back. There were 15 women and 13 guys so I had to sit out 2 dates but I didnt mind - it was nice to have an extra break! There was an interesting mix of people, I ticked a few guys and got 2 matches - so not bad for £20. The host was really good and put everyone at ease - Id definetly recomend speeddater to people in Brighton looking to meet somone.
Charlotte, Brighton - Wed 24 Jun
Used Speeddater three times, generally well organised and very nice ladies. Number of couples: 25-16-12. 12 is a bit disappointing.
London - Thu 11 Jun
I went to one of their wine tasting events. There were about 10 more women than men, which made the whole thing pointless. Despite this, attempts to get a refund or booked on another event were refused by Speed Dater. Id never go on another event of theirs
Allison, Wine Tasting In London - Sun 7 Jun
Ive gone speed dating before and there were loads of people but I didnt meet anyone so I went to this event. There were 17 women and 18 guys so I had to sit out for one date, but the host gave me some dating tips while I waited. It was so nice to attend an event where there were so many nice looking and interesting women. I got 4 matches out of it and would definitely recommend Speeddater to anyone thats thinking of doing speed dating.
Graduate Professional - Sugar Reef - Mon 1 Jun
second time i have been now, really nice venue (great location in mayfair) all the ladies were very interesting and easy on the eye which helped! its good to see an equal balance and busy events for the older age groups. were not out of the game yet!
Paul, Dover St - Thu 21 May
Great night, venue was good, was worried before hand as it was my first time but the host put me at ease. Would definitely go again.
Reading Ivory Lounge - Fri 20 Mar
Brilliant! Over 20 dates - almost too many ladies!

Punch Tavern - Mon 16 Mar
i went to the party with a big group of girlfriends and had such a laugh! we were surprised actually, we werent sure about the kind f the crowd that would go but it was really busy and a good mix of people. well organised and the speed dating was good - busy, noisy but fun! will def go again
