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.
