Get ready for Pride 2023 AND Find Your Valentine - all in one night!

CitySwoon is very excited to be bringing our UNIQUE, in-person matched speed dating for gay men on a Saturday night back to an iconic venue - The Colombian on Oxford Street!

Fill out a profile in under 5 minutes and be matched on a series of 6-8 quick-fire date rounds to THE most compatible singles in the room.

This event includes a drink on arrival, around 8 matched dates with men and then a drink at the end of dating.

Check-in is on your phone, with NO match cards, drink tokens, paper or pens required - just bring your phone and your great attitude! So, please ensure it's fully charged.

The Event

- Experience a series of relaxed mini-dates selected for you each round by an intelligent algorithm live at the event.
- Hosted by a friendly and professional team.
- Handpicked, top bar with a welcoming atmosphere.
- Connect freely with your mutual matches the next day on CitySwoon.
- Opportunity to connect with the other participants you don't date on the night.

The Venue

The Colombian is an iconic Oxford Street institution, and has recently undergone a big renovation! The event will be taking place in the Cocktail Lounge on Level One. Featuring huge plush booths, the cocktail lounge boasts original high ceilings with classic finishes and a huge luxurious marble bar with fluted brass detailing. The space is elegant, intimate and comfortable with huge floor to ceiling windows giving view to the iconic Oxford Street.

Why Cityswoon?

Established in 2014, we are the national leader in singles events and by far the most trusted.

But don't let the tech fool you - this is all about meeting REAL people in REAL life at awesome venues! Here's what you get:

- Over 95% receive a mutual match
- Bigger events mean better events with a party atmosphere!
- You can contact other people on CitySwoon that you didn't date too
- Over 8 years of experience! Many thousands of events plus hundreds of thousands of matches, relationships and marriages!
- It works so well, we've taken it international
- Meticulously planned events - we don't want to waste your time with cancellations, so we only list the events we're very confident will run.
- Returning Customer? Don't worry! You will NEVER be matched to the same person twice and your post-date feedback is kept confidential. (This is for real life and virtual events too) So, book into several events with confidence.
