October 30, 2018 AT 11:44AM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

The days of a swift pint and a glitter ball being thought of as a decent night out are long gone. Instead, singles across London are increasingly seeking out events that involve a little more imagination.

Its no surprise, then, that with the open-mindedness of singletons across the capital and the urge to experience something new and exciting, fetish events are on the increase and more popular than ever. Thinking of introducing some spice back into your life or got a burning desire to release the inner kink within you? Look no more!

As Londons leading speed dating hosts, Dateinadash arent shy about bringing something new and unique to the dating scene. Naked speed dating; Ball Pit Dating; Dating in a Taxi; Yes, throughout 2018, weve been working our little butts off to deliver an array of fantastic singles events in London.

As a dedicated team of professional speed dating hosts, we are proud to be the innovators in terms of unique singles events in London. And, were not slowing down with the introduction of Fetish Speed Dating this month. As the name suggests, Fetish Speed Dating is speed dating with a twist, and a sexy one at that! Brand spanking new from Dateinadash, London Fetish Speed Dating is set to be sexier and oh so fabulous than any of our events to date. What makes you tick, what gets you hot under the collar...all will be revealed at our amazing new singles event.

While there are some more hardcore events around in the capital such as Fetlife and Club Rub, our new event is lighter making it ideal for those looking to explore the fetish scene. Maybe you are feeling intimidated by the more established communities? Maybe you are curious to see what the fetish scene is all about? Our London Fetish Speed Dating ticks all of the boxes for those looking to delve into this scene at an entry level, without any judgement. Women seem to love the idea about getting kinky and talking about sex. While some people might find it daunting to strip off and get completely naked, the idea of exploring the fetish scene is very popular. Whether you love dressing up in nurses uniforms, adore latex or prefer kinky PVC or leather outfits, we want you to come dressed as you wish and show us your inner kink. Of course, if you prefer to be at one in your own skin, feel free to turn up in the nude and rock your birthday suit.

Similar to our standard speed dating events, there will be equal numbers of men and women sat down at individual tables. However, to mix things up and raise the heat in venue, youll find toys to play with ranging from dog collars, paddles, whips and blindfolds. Think Fifty Shades of Grey crossed with a very successful singles evening and youll be spot on with our new Fetish Speed Dating event. One thing is for sure, theres absolutely ZERO touching or sexual activity of any kind within the four walls of our exclusive venue! What you choose to get up after the event is completely up to you, but for our Dateinadash event, we definitely do not tolerate it. Sorry guys and girls!

So, if youd like to explore the fetish scene and talk about all things kinky, this is the event for you. Set for the end of November, our Fetish Speed Dating event will be held at the Exhibit venue in Balham. Grab yourself a ticket to our upcoming event very soon - look out for more details on our Dateinadash website! We look forward to seeing you very soon!

Before you decide to take the plunge in the dating world it is important that you do some research. We want you to explore the internet, have a browse and see what type of evenings you can expect from the various different speed dating companies offering their services to you.

To avoid disappoint, the Dateinadash team suggest you check out their websites, take a look at their social media platforms, read through their reviews if they have any and generally have a snoop about. In doing so, you’ll discover how long they've been delivering London speed dating evenings, what people think of them and how the business promotes itself! Why you might ask? Because all of this can say a lot about how much they really care/

Yes, there's a couple of other companies offering London speed dating events but here at Dateinadash we've got this shizzle nailed down! We score at the top of Google for all things related speed dating in London phrases and we couldn't be more proud! This is why we've London's #1 speed dating hosts in our gorgeous singles' eyes!

What’s more, we typically have more dates than our competitors but we're not blowing our own trumpets here! We recently conducted a survey using secret shoppers and the results really do speak for themselves. Singles in London LOVE us and the feeling’s definitely mutual!


First things first- we have this dating marlarky in the bag! We've got oodles of fantastic, exclusive speed dating venues across the city of London because nothing is too much for our singles. We want you to enjoy every minute of your speed dating experience and are here to help ensure you have fun, flirt and hopefully make a connection with one (or more) gorgeous singles.


Talking of venues, our flagship venue is 100 Wardour Street which is a down right swanky, multipurpose venue with a stylish lounge and eatery. It’s also got a downstairs dance club and fantastic floor space to dance the night away. Worlds apart from our nearest rival in the West End of London, our venues and highly successful speed dating events kick some serious butt in delivering the perfect ambiance and environment. From our experience, you’ll have more chance of enjoying meeting, flirting and chatting with lots of likeminded singles from across the capital when you feel relaxed.

But that's not it, another venue- Madison- is the place to be in London on a Friday night. This place is sure to get you in the #FridayFeeling mood. Did you know? Madison was named London's second most-Instagrammed spot in the capital, and it's no surprise why! London's famous rooftop bar and restaurant, Madison has staggering views across the dome of St Paul's Cathedral and looks incredible all year round, come rain or shine! So what makes the cut when it comes to speed dating venues? As a dedicated team of speed dating hosts, we strive to bring you the best venues possible to ensure the best evening of fun! Regardless of where they are in London, each of our venues are handpicked for their ambiance, the quality and choice of the drinks, the local travel links and the vibe they give off. Forget back street pubs and sleazy second rate bars. That's many of our competitors’ cup of tea, but not ours! We always put our singles at the fore of all of the decisions we make and this has proved a fantastic decision to date.


Unlike massive companies who have multiple bodies doing all of the running around and organising, Dateinadash are proud to be run by our original founder, Rob Ryall. As such, our customer service levels are second to none as Rob deals with all questions and queries direct. This means you'll always know who you are talking to.

But he couldn't run the show without the help of his dedicated team of speed dating hosts working alongside him! As a strong team, we are hands on in every aspect of the company and share the same vision. We take the time to get to know our guests, their needs, what they like and want to avoid. Armed with this 'oh so' valuable information, Dateinadash are able to deliver targeted events across the whole of London.

There’s never a truer word said as the old saying goes. While we could blow our own trumpets on how fantastic our singles think we are, we don't need to. The oodles of glowing reviews speak for themselves. Plus, unlike many online, we don't shy away by 'closing reviews to the public' as we genuinely have nothing to hide. We are transparent and always will be. Yes, some people might not have found the love of their lives or thought they'd be getting a different experience, but if you do your research and weigh up the reviews as a whole, you'll see that many, many singletons across London love our events- month on month, year on year!

What's more, we've never paid for reviews (what is the actual point of this?!?) unlike some companies. Furthermore, we’ve never asked staff, friends and family to write reviews as if they are genuine singletons looking for love. We don't need review fillers. If people want to leave a review, we thank you immensely for taking the time to write it- genuinely, openly, and truthfully. It's these reviews which highlight us as London's preferred speed dating company and we cannot thank you enough!


When a job’s worth doing well, you’ll put in 110%. That’s exactly the attitude our team of dedicated speed dating hosts have towards putting on a fantastic speed dating event in London. What’s the point unless you give it your all? Our enthusiastic hosts really are the best in the industry. They are funny, have a wicked sense of humour and are sure to put you at ease as soon as you enter the room. Each and every one is a people person and strives to deliver the best evening of fun, flirting and speed dating they can.

And the best bit? Dating doesn’t have to be expensive. We know how hard you work for your money which is why we are very competitive in terms of pricing. What’s more, we offer fantastic Early Bird offers for you to take advantage of. Our Early Bird deals are just £10 meaning you’ll save even more money when you book early with Dateinadash. We also regularly offer 2 for 1 deals and discounts on group bookings when booked in advance! What are you waiting for? We are ready and raring to give you a fantastic evening to remember in the heart of the city.


In essence, anyone could hold a London speed dating event but that doesn’t mean they should. To host professional speed dating events in London it is important to have the adequate insurance, possess the best people skills and know your customers. Oodles of third party sites such as Skiddle and Eventbrite, allow anyone to create their own event. While these sites are brilliant for public events such as BBQs and music event, they aren’t suitable for speed dating events. As we’ve said before, be sure to do your research around the company you choose. Check out whether they have their own website as it’ll be difficult to sell of the tickets via one platform alone. Here at Dateinadash, we sell our tickets in a variety of ways.

Did you know MEET UP events often use fake RSVP’s to drum up interest? We suggest you are very wary of events with hundreds of RSVP’s as typically less than 50% of all attendees on ‘MEET UP’ turn up for the event itself. Because it is a FREE platform, MEET UP events attract low quality attendee so it’s very, very unlikely you’ll find the love of your life at such events.

Furthermore, take notice of companies who only advertise on Google Adwords. They’ve paid to appear there and if you cannot find their website in the natural search listings, they aren’t at the top of their game like we are!

Last but by no means least- be wary of companies who insist on emailing you every single week with event updates or offering free or discounted tickets. In the 7 years Dateinadash have been offering speed dating events in the capital, we’ve not once had to send an all database email as our events speak for themselves. We do enough targeted advertising across a wide range of platforms that people who want to attend our events, know when and where they are on!! That said, to our impressive 22,000 contacts on our database, we will be sending our an updated newsletter very soon!

Who's Got The Love Island Bug?
July 18, 2018 AT 12:36PM GMT+0200 | 0 comments | leave a comment

The full and ever changing line of contestants of this years Love Island has gripped the nation at the villa. As Londons #1 speed dating hosts, Dateinadash are on hand to reveal the islanders on this seasons remaining contestants including an A&E doctor and Danny Dyers daughter living life to the full in the scorching sunshine!

Dr Alex George

While his day job is completely different to working in a busy hospital as an A&E doctor, Alex says that joining the villa has been a great opportunity that was just too good a chance to miss! Alex knows full well that medical degrees dont usually go hand-in-hand, but he now has a dream of becoming a part-time medic, part-time TV person, perhaps even inter-mingling the two. Wed definitely say theres probably room for a new TV doctor for sure!

Dani Dyer

At only 21, Danny Dyers daughter is on the lookout for someone genuine. And we cannot blame her, thats what we all want! With past relationships taking a strain on her with endless mind games, Dani is keen to find a guy who believes in her. Shes definitely looking for someone to give as much as she does so heres hoping her wish comes true! With interest from Jack Fincham, maybe hell be the lucky lad to meet her tough nut dad, Eastenders favourite, Danny Dyer!

Laura Anderson

A self confessed relationship person, theres no denying the fact Laura likes to have a boyfriend on her arm. With nine boyfriends to her name, Laura is certainly used to being in the public eye so being in the Love Island villa is second nature to her. The blonde air hostess wants boyfriend number ten to be rugged, real man!

Samira Mighty

Appearing in Dreamgirls and Mamma Mia, this 22 year old beauty is not shy of being in the limelight. Everyone in the West End knows everybody and Samira is holding up well despite the knockbacks after being told shes not their type (on paper, or anywhere else). Samira might have been the first woman to enter the villa but shes taken a while to get into her stride being one of the last women in the current series to find love. But theres smiles all round now!

Wes Nelson

With a handful of videos going viral on Instagram, Wes has a natural flair for kickboxing and keeping fit. The very academic designer has a large Instagram following so its no surprise the 20 year old has had a flurry of Instagram relationships, albeit no one famous. But what Wes is after is a cougar who he can get serious within the villa.

Jack Fincham

Yearning to meet someone genuine, Jack, 26 is more worried about looking like an idiot on the TV but hes doing himself proud. The clumsy sales manager (with a successful career in selling pens!), is certainly writing his way into the Love Island history books! Turning out to be the real joker in the pack!

Megan Barton Hanson

The 24-year-old model has proclaimed she's more chilled than the girls in the villa. The big question is, will she rub them up the wrong way? Im very real, Im more chilled than the other girls, says Megan, who has modelled for 66 magazines and posts some rather, erm, saucy pictures to her Instagram page. Now dont all rush to look at once, or youll crash it for the rest of us!

Georgia Steel

Shes no kiss and tell girl and we admire Georgia for that. As a 23 year old barmaid from London, shes openly admitted shes been on a date with someone famous- but a girl doesnt tell her secrets. As a self confessed good time girl, Georgia is very quiet when it comes to her private life and we all think thats pretty cool in todays day and age. As a late entry into the villa, Georgia is looking for love and a man who is tanned and not 'cringy!

Jack Fowler

Semi professional footballer Jack Fowler, aged 22, is here to clear up any confusion about the name of the show that he is entering. As he states, Its Love Island, not Loyal Island, talking about the lengths he would be prepared to go to in order to get the girl whos right for him. Entering with five other single boys meant Jack had to pick a girl and get grafting in order to secure a place in the main villa, which is exactly what he did. From what weve seen to date he definitely not going to be second best! Everyone loves a trier dont they??!

Josh Denzel

A real boys boy, Josh, 26 has a strong circle of friends with about 15 boys in his friendship and absolutely NO girls. Yep, wed say that makes him a lads lad. The social media host for LadBibles SportsBible, Josh gets to interview high profile sportsmen, from boxer Anthony Joshua to footballer Harry Kane. And with World Cup hysteria taking over the world, wed say Josh has a very enviable job, even if he did have everyone wondering if he was a hairdresser! That said, viewers have been watching eagerly after Josh Denzel jumped ship from Georgia Steel to Kazimir Crossley oh so quickly. Hmmmmm, enough about that one!

Finding love in London with Dateinadash If youre on the lookout for love and want to find genuinely lovely other halves, forget Love Island and look a little closer to home. Pop along to any of our Upcoming Events to try out speed dating. Theres so many opportunities to meet likeminded singletons from across the capital of London, all looking for one thing; LOVE!
