Our new Wednesday night Speed Dating event for ages 23-35 (age guide) takes place at the trendy Mercato Metropolitano in Elephant & Castle. This is a wonderful venue with dozens of pop-up food stalls, a micro brewery, secret beer garden & live music every night.

At this event you can expect to meet around 15-20 people in 4-5 minute dates with an interval half way through for refreshments.

Speed Dating kicks off at 8pm prompt and any guests arriving late may not be able to take part so please ensure you arrive 15-30 minutes before the scheduled start time to allow for registration.

When all the guests have arrived the host will explain how the evening will unfold and you will be provided with a scorecard and pen. When the event begins women will be seated and men will rotate between tables every 4 minutes. At the end of each date guests mark on their scorecard or directly onto our website using your phone whether they would like to see that person again.

Once the event finishes guests are welcome to explore the market and sample some of the delicious food on offer or check out the amazing live music.

The next day we will contact you via e-mail with your matches and you'll be able to contact anyone you've paired with through our website.

Please be aware that speed dating places are limited and the majority of our events do sell out, so please book early to avoid disappointment.

If you have any queries about this event please contact us at enquiries@dateinadash.com or call our telephone bookings hotline on 0845 862 1448 (9am 5pm).

    It was a great experience to meet the people out there. I had good conversations with all the candidates. I may do a few more events at the same location and see if anything comes up.

    We arrived as a group of three after having paid for and been reminded about the event multiples times. When we arrived at the venue they said they no longer partner with the speed dating provider and therefore the event simply didn’t happen, in spite of our having purchased 3 tickets for £20 each! I’ve written to the organiser, heard nothing back and had no mention of any refund thus far. At the worst this is a scam, at best it’s chronically poor organisation and miscommunication.

    Reply from Speed Dating @ Mercato Metropolitano in Elephant & Castle (Ages 23-35)

    Thank you for your review! I am sorry to hear about this. The venue was changed and we did send an e-mail regarding this so it is strange that you did not receive it. Please can you check your spam folder? I have not had any e-mails from you regarding this either so there might be a problem with your e-mail settings. Please contact me on enquiries@dateinadash.com and we can resolve this matter. Regards, DateinaDash.
