Book club shoreditch speed dating best online dating review
And the venues - most often than not sleazy West End chain bars - were only conducive to romance after imbibing an unhealthy number of discounted spirits.
The Book Club's monthly speed dating evening was an altogether different affair.
Apologies for the delay, I was meant to review this yesterday, but after I dropped a couple of hints on Twitter @30dates about how well the date with the Fake Pimpernel was going, I had too many demands for the date write-up, so decided to prioritise that post!
Hosted by Shoreditch's The Book Club, 'Last Night A Speed Date Saved My Life' has become one of London't most popular nights for singles. Well, for one it's held in a pretty trendy place so you don't feel like a total speed date doofus, and secondly, the light-hearted atmosphere of the whole evening makes it feel more like a regular night down the pub rather than a cringe-worthy 1:1 debacle. Well, could be that a literary speed date is the one for you. Now before you freak out, listen to the science behind this speed date idea.We’d heard rave reviews of ‘Last Night a Speed Date Changed My Life’ – a fortnightly event in the basement of The Book Club in Shoreditch.Girls’ tickets for the event sell out almost as soon as they go public, and extra tickets are only released if additional boys attend, in order to keep the numbers equal.The Book Club has already established itself as the go-to venue for edgy, creative types looking for a dash of art, current affairs or philosophy to go with their Shoreditch Twats (that's a cocktail, not a local).It was therefore no surprise that these single Book Clubbers were sharply turned out, witty conversationalists who spoke with verve about their latest design piece, art shoot or marketing campaign.
On the off chance that more tickets for the event next month became available, I emailed the organiser.
