The Venue

We're so excited to be back on the lively Lower East Side at Sons of Essex - one of the neighborhood's best bars. Come join us and NYC singles in the spacious and comfy Pit Lounge. Sons of Essex serves delicious cocktails and Instaworthy American eats.

The Event:

- You will 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.

Why CitySwoon?

The success rate is higher than both online dating and traditional speed dating! But don't let the tech fool you - this is all about meeting REAL people in REAL life!

- Over 95% receive a mutual match
- A closely-managed balance of men & women - we work very hard at it!
- Bigger events mean better events.
- Over 8 years of experience! Many thousands of events plus hundreds of thousands of matches, relationships and marriages!
- 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.
- Never date the same person twice - our system remembers who you've already met so you'll always have a new person to meet on each date round! (This is for real life and virtual events too). So, book into several events with confidence.
