June Events

Sunday, June 11th, 2023

June Events schedule is live. We are almost full so if you wish to join us book now.

Following our successful event in May, in June we are offering two events, so there is an event for your specific age group. We return to Kindred in Hammersmith at the end of June for our younger mid 20s to late 30s event. If you are one or two years either side you may be able to attend but check with us to clarify.

Our events are aimed at Hindu and Sikh professionals. We always have our friendly hosts on hand to ensure that you meet lots of new people. If there is space, we usually offer rounds of mini speed dates where you can meet 7 or 8 people over a 25 minute breakout from the main event. If offered, sign up when you arrive.

For group tickets we also accept bookings on Eventbrite. If there is a waiting list, you can jump this and book as a male female pair or group. See you soon.

Is Speed Dating dead?

Tuesday, December 10th, 2019

We’ve been running Singles Events for the last 17 years…with speed dating being a popular feature at almost all of them.

Speed dating is a very simple way for singles to meet each other quickly. The women sit down and men are placed opposite them. Every few minutes, a bell is rung and the men move on to chat to the next female. As the process is fast, it means participants can meet a large number of people in one evening. If they like each other they can connect afterwards to arrange a proper date.

However, times are changing. Online dating and dating apps have become so efficient that singles are able to chat instantly with anyone that they wish to. As such, speed dating parties have become slightly unnecessary. Why go out, when you can do the same thing without even having to leave the sofa?

So many companies no longer run speed dating parties and many of the big players have closed down over the years.

Our events have never just been about speed dating. We focus on bringing you larger parties that have icebreakers and hosts to introduce you. After all, the more people you meet in on evening then the better your chances of making a match. Events are also a great way to meet and catch up with friends. Plus our clients love to put a face to us and meet us first hand.

If you want a chat, advice or have suggestions come along to our events and say hi.

The good news is that we’ll still have optional speed dating at many of our larger events….just for a little extra fun. Our next event is at Valentines in 2020.

Let us know what you think. Are you still keen on attending events in 2020.

See you soon!

Asian Single Solution Birthday Party Review

Monday, November 11th, 2019

Thank you to everyone who attended out big Birthday Singles Party. This took place at the Gable Bar in Moorgate and was very well attended.

The evening began with some fun ice breaking activities and the venue filled up quickly. We’d made sure that our best hosts were on hand to put guests at ease right from the start. We had our ever popular Celebrity Magician Ravi Mayar in attendance too, to entertain the crowd with his eye popping magical tricks.

Speed dating took place throughout the evening, which is also a fun experience. Small groups got the chance to meet each other and see if they might be compatible. Later in the evening, our resident DJ Titch got the crowd going with his party tunes.

We’ve had some great feedback about the event and many matches were made during the course of evening. Our guests are always happy that we arrange these events as provide fantastic opportunities to meet new people and possible life partners. We also had quite a few compliments about our friendly hosts.

The Gable is always one of our most popular venues as we have exclusive use and there is plenty of room to mingle. So we were very happy to return.

Our next party will be our Valentine’s party and we are expecting a large crowd for this. We hope to welcome old friends and new.

Happy dating!

Make a Date for our Spring Fling

Thursday, March 15th, 2018

Our big Spring Fling Singles party takes place on Saturday 28th April.

Here are our top tips to make sure you make the most of the event and come away with lots of dates!

Dress to Impress

Most of our events have a dress code, so think about this in advance.  Get your best shirt ironed or treat yourself to a new dress. That way you’ll be confident when you enter the event and will attract attention for the right reasons.

Bring Your Friends

It’s always a great idea to round up your single friends to come along with you.  That way you have an instant support group and you won’t have to worry about being left on your own. Just make sure you choose happy, positive friends who are there to have a good time!

If you haven’t got any single friends to bring then don’t worry – just go up and say hello to some of the guests.  It doesn’t matter if you find them attractive or not. When you do this, other people will assume they are interested in you and you’ll look instantly more popular. As well as that, you could make new friends who you can keep talking to during the night.

Use the Hosts

We pride ourselves on booking more hosts than any other Asian singles party company. These hosts are the friendliest in the business and are there to help you.  Don’t be afraid of speaking to one if you need assistance.  They can help you talk to the person you’ve been eyeing up all evening, or explain how the night works. Their job is to make sure you have a good time so please make the most of them. They don’t bite!

Try Everything

If you want to be successful, you need to throw yourself into everything. This means taking part in the ice breaking activities, having a go at speed dating and generally making the most of it.  It really doesn’t matter how well you do it, but it will help you relax and have fun.  All the activities are there for your benefit and can help you start conversations with new people.

Talk to the People you Like

I find myself saying this a lot, but as a paying customer you can talk to anyone you wish.  If someone else is with them, don’t worry.  Just wait a few minutes and step in. The last thing you want to do is go home regretting you blew your chance to say hello.  Even if they aren’t keen, you’ve not lost anything.  You didn’t know them before the party and you don’t know them after.  So there’s no risk involved.


Don’t forget to book your ticket HERE !


See you there,

Masquerade Ball was a Huge Success

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Thank you to everyone who came to our amazing 15th Birthday Masquerade Ball.

With over 250 tickets sold, the party was sold out with a wonderful crowd.  We had masked speed dating, magician Ravi Mayar, popcorn, candyfloss, live music and much more. Above all, we provided opportunity and many great matches were made during the night.

We’ve had many people tell us it was our best event ever, so we are excited to think of ways we can top it in 2018!

If you have any ideas for events that we don’t currently offer, please add your thoughts to a comment on this page.  We’d love to hear what you would like to see.

Asian Single Solution once again sponsoring the London Indian Film Festival

Wednesday, June 7th, 2017

We are delighted to announce that we are once again sponsoring the Bagri Foundation London Indian Film Festival.

Now in it’s 8th year, the festival showcases some of the most prestigious and though provoking movies from the Indian subcontinent. This year, it will be held
from the 22nd – 29th June in London and 23rd June – 02 July.

It’s such a great opportunity to be able to support this festival. Many of our members love cinema and it’s a wonderful way to celebrate the best of Indian culture and film making.  If you get the chance then do check out some of the films.

Our lead film will be “Bad Man” :



A mad, comic caper where the legendary villain of Bollywood, Gulshan Grover, decides to re-launch himself in the film industry, but this time as a hero! The not so young Grover enlists the help of his dysfunctional sons and begrudging Bollywood stars including Chunky Pandey and Farah Khan to help him achieve his transformation. Guided by his ‘friends’ our hero soon slips into increasingly hilarious and delusional situations as they plan his launch movie. Badman explores the dark yet funny side of Bollywood where almost anything is possible. It’s epic mockumentary style is a first for Indian cinema.


Director: Soumik Sen
Starring: Gulshan Grover, Chunky Pandey, Rishi Kapoor, Manisha Koirala, Farah Khan
Run time: 84 mins | Recommended Certificate: 12A
Language: Hindi with English Subtitles | Year: 2017 | Country: India

Our big Masquerade Ball took place on Saturday 26th November.

The event was a huge success and we’ve had lots of great feedback about it.

The party started with our classical duo playing romantic music while the guests entered. The icebreaker game went down well with prizes of sweets from our Candy Cart.  Our Magician wowed the crowed and we had our casino gaming tables available to help everyone interact.

The highlight of the event was our masked speed dating which most people took part in.  To finish the evening our resident DJ helped our guests get in the dancing mood.

Date Change for our Boat Party

Monday, August 10th, 2015

Have you booked yet?


We love trying new parties ideas out.  Our members love our useful midweek and Saturday events, but it’s important to sometimes mix things up a little.

New themes attract new faces and open up your meeting possibilities.

So as bit of fun, we are running the first ever Asian Single Solution Love Boat.

We’ve hired a moving party boat which will cruise along the Thames, giving you spectacular views of London.  We’ll be playing popular tunes in the downstairs bar, with a quieter upstairs bar for those who prefer a bit more peace and quiet.

As always, we’ll have our amazing hosts on hand to help you mingle and meet everyone. Oh and we are including a cocktail reception to make the night even more memorable.

We arrive back by 10.30pm so you will have plenty of time to get home.

The party will now  take place on Tuesday 1st September and departs from Westminster Pier.  Please check out the website and book now.

Lots of tickets have already gone and we won’t be able to add extra ones so don’t miss out!

Asian Dating Events: Please make sure you buy a drink

Monday, March 16th, 2015

We really need your help with a difficult subject.


We’ve noticed a worrying trend over the last 18 months that could potentially lead to us not being able to run so many Asian dating events.  So please take a minute to read this short blog so that you can help us.

When we book venues we have to do so on a “minimum spend” basis.  This is where we are allowed to use the venue exclusively in return that our guests will spend a certain amount on drinks.  This makes it worth them opening up specially for us and closing to the public.

However, while many of our guests do buy drinks, there are an increasing number who are just asking for free tap water.  This is incredibly annoying to the venue and frustrating for us.  The result is that some of our most popular venues have told they don’t want to have our events any longer. Obviously we don’t want that to happen.

It’s just good manners to buy a drink if you are using a bar…even if it’s a soft drink.

We don’t make a profit on the events as we do them as a bonus for our members. Most of the money we make is spent on staff, advertising, entertainment etc.

So here’s the deal.  Tap water is fine, but please buy a drink with it!

If everyone does that then the venues will all be happy and the spends will be fine.  We’ll also be able to get better venues for our parties which is great for you too :)

We don’t like having to ask this as we think it should be common courtesy anyway.

Happy dating!

Birthday Ball was huge success

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Thank you to all our lovely guests who attended our 12th Birthday Ball
Last Saturday we held our big Birthday Ball at the Kensington Close Hotel.  We completely sold out with over 300 tickets sold and we are delighted to say that the event ran very smoothly.

Here are a few photos from the night.  We’ll put lots more up on on Facebook page soon so do tag yourselves please.

20.09.14-5648 20.09.14-5676 20.09.14-5704 20.09.14-5739

We’ve had some great feedback about the event too:

“Photo booth and fountain were good ice breakers. Thanks for great evening!”

“Just wanted to say thank you for organising yesterday, I think you did a great job and  I haad a lot of fun, and so did many other people”

Due to the popularity of this party we will look to hold a similar one early next year.  When you see it announced, we strongly advise you to book early as tickets went in record time for this one!


Thank you for all your support over the last year 12 years.  He hope to make the next 12 event bigger and better.

Events Music: What would you like?

Monday, August 11th, 2014

The Single Solution brand has been going for almost 12 years now and we do our best to continually innovate and improve.


We are planning a big celebration party but we need your help to make it as amazing as possible!

We’re lining up lots of special entertainment but we are still deciding about the music aspect.  We usually have a DJ later on in the evening but for the big ones we like to make things more special but having a band.

However, there are so many to choose from that we would love to hear your thoughts before we book anything. For those who don’t really like music and prefer to talk then don’t worry as we will have a quiet room next door too.

So, with that in mind, please can you add your thoughts by commenting on this blog or emailing us at [email protected]


1) Would you prefer a DJ or a live band?

2) What sort of music would you like?

3) If it’s a band, would you like a covers band or a specific Tribute Act?

4) Is a dancefloor important to you?

5) Is there anything else you’d like us to do?


Thank you very much for your help.  It’s only with our members input that we can continue to grow.

See you at the party!


Do you know a great venue for our Asian Dating events?

Monday, March 17th, 2014

group of friends at a party

We pride ourselves at over the quality of our venues, guests and singles parties.   So we have to be very careful about choosing locations that are right for the brand.

We’d like to shake things up a bit and try some new venues for our parties.

We’re looking for some London based bars or clubs that would like us to run events.  We bring in busy crowds to otherwise quiet venues.  We will of course keep using our most popular sites, but mix in some new ones too.

So, we were wondering if you might know somewhere that could be suitable?   If you do, please drop us an email at [email protected]

Oh and if you have ideas for any type of different event that we don’t normally offer then let us know as well.  You never know, we might start running them.

Happy dating!

Many thanks to everyone who braved the awful weather and managed to attend the events.  We had a great turn out for both parties and lots of matches were made. We hope you all have fun and that you have some amazing dates!   The feedback has been good for the parties and we may run more events in these areas later in the year.

If you have any suggestions on ways we can market these to local members please do let us know.  The more people we can find that are interested then the more chance we’ll run events again.

Do take a moment to check out our London and Birmingham upcoming Asian parties.  Although the Valentine’s period is over,  cupid never stops working his magic all year round.  You just have to be ready to give him a little nudge!

New Asian Speed Dating Ideas

Monday, September 24th, 2012

Tired of being asked the same questions?

Try these two fun alternatives

Speed dating is a great way to meet lots of potential new partners in a short space of time.   It’s normal to spend your session by talking and getting to know each other, but this can become boring quite quickly if you do it wrong.  Recent studies have shown that there are two better ways to handle speed dating that will get you much faster results.

So here are two new ideas that you can try:

1)Guess the picture. This is great fun but you need to bring a pad of paper with you.  One of you will think of an object and the other has to guess what it might be and draw it on the paper. This can be a great way to increase attraction.

2) Eye Gazing.    You don’t speak for this one, but instead spend the three minutes staring in to each other’s eyes.  This encourages a deeper connection and you might get surprising results once the initial amusement is over.

It’s a great idea to combine both these activities. However, you still need to introduce yourself and follow up afterwards.  They will hopefully already be looking forward to finding out more about the creative person with the wonderful imagination!


Happy dating!

Top 5 Reasons why our Asian Dating parties work

Monday, June 27th, 2011

We know that our members love our singles parties.

Here are five of the best reasons why you should come and meet them.

1) High quality guests.  Our Muslim dating site is aimed at British born, Asian Muslim professionals. As such, the calibre is very high and everyone is there to genuinely meet someone for a relationship or marriage.

2) Friendliest Staff. We hire the best hosts in the business.  There are warm, approachable, knowledgeable and there to help YOU. If you every have a question, need some advice or want some introductions that all you need to do it ask them.

3) The best venues.  We put a lot of effort into making sure that we only use fantastic venues that suit our events.  We make sure that drinks prices are reasonable yet the locations are stylish.  They are always exclusively hired out to us and in easy to get to London locations.

4) Fair prices.  Our events are very affordable and offer excellent value for money.  Most events are usually around the £15 mark and all Premium Members get 50% off the events for them and there friends too. If you meet 20 people then that works out at less than 40p a date!

5) They don’t end once the party is over.  If you attend an event, we give you two weeks to use our online messaging service to contact everyone you met. We don’t have useless tick boxes that restrict who you can email.  Instead, you can view photos and profiles and get the chance to get in touch with anyone that you wish.

Do book an event soon and see why our events our so popular.

Good luck!

Did you get a Valentine’s date?

Monday, February 14th, 2011

We had a fantastic Valentine’s party on Saturday


We know that many people have already got dates lined up, but did you?

If you didn’t get any cards yesterday, don’t feel miserable about it.  Even if you do have a secret admirers,  they’d probably never dare let you know anyway! It’s funny but most people do have at least one person who wishes they were dating them, but they are too scared to ruin a friendship, business relationship or just too shy in general.  So nobody makes the first move and everyone wonders why they are still single.

The secret is simple, get yourself out there and be proactive.  If nobody know you are single and looking then you’ll never meet anyone new. Take the initiave and do your best to make your intentions known.

Next year make sure you it’s you sending out Valentine’s cards to the people you like.  Alternatively, just send a text letting them know you are thinking about them. Nothing over the top, but little things like that will brighten their day and increase your chances,

We’ve always got lots of great singles parties throughout hte year so do book up for some today.   You might just make your own love story.

Happy dating!

Spring Party Review

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

We had our big Hindu & Sikh party last Saturday and we are pleased to say it was a huge success.


The event took place at one of our most popular venues – The Abbey in Victoria – and sold out with over 210 guests.

We had optional speed dating, ice breaking activities and the return of DJ Titch later in the evening which got everyone dancing.
We’ve had some great feedback about the party so here are some of the comments:

“Brill ideas fantastic venue why did i not find you guys earlier!!!”

“Too many pretty ladies to pick from!”

“You guys really do organise the best parties in London!”

“Staff: very friendly and helpful!”

Our next one is on Sat 8th May and we’ve just confirmed the return of DJ Titch for this.

Remember to book up early as we hate to turn people away, but these really do get full quickly!

Asian Party was lots of fun

Tuesday, January 26th, 2010

We’ve had lots of great feedback about our Hindu & Sikh party that we ran on Saturday 23rd January 2010.

This event took place at one of our favourite and most popular venues – The Cuban Bar in Moorgate.  The Cuban is in a great location in the heart of the City of London and is right next to the station so easy to get to.

We ran speed dating upstairs in the top bar and the mingling took place downstairs in the main club area.  This started off with our ever popular ice breaking game which got everyone talking right away.  Later in the evening, lots of people paired up and we’ve heard that many dates were arranged which is also good to know.  Most of the guests have been emailing each other even since so some wonderful connections were made.

Here is a feedback from the party:  ” Met a wonderful guy – best £20 I’ve ever spent!”

Our next party will be our big Valentine’s party at the Abbey in Victoria.  Valentine’s is traditionally the biggest and best party that we do as they always attract new people who haven’t tried us before.

Pooja Shah meets James and Paul

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

The Single Solution were proud to sponsor the recenty party for “Loose Women’s” Jackie Brambles.

During the party James and Paul chatted to actress Pooja Shah (Eastenders, Bend it Like Beckham) who turned out to be a fan of Asian Single Solution!

“I have always thought of myself as a confident and independent woman, enjoying several happy and long-term relationships. During my “single” periods in between, I have never been afraid to give online dating a try and would recommend Asiansinglesolution as professional and well organised for anyone in a similar situation. You do not have to be looking for “the one”, you may just want to meet some attractive and interesting people.”

The Perks of Premium Membership

Tuesday, June 23rd, 2009

We like to think of our Premium Membership scheme as a special, VIP club.   By paying us each month for our Online Dating services, our Premium Members also get massive discounts off all events.    This isn’t just for them, but for their friends too.  That means that the savings can work out much more than the actualy cost of membership.  Great value or what?

On top of that, we run events just for our Premium members in mind.  This includes special Wine Tasting, Theatre, Comedy and Casino evenings and they are great opportunities to meet new people in London.

Our latest events have been “money can’t buy” concert tickets to Beyonce and Michael Jackson.  Not only are these sold out concerts, but our guests get to sit in the VIP Single Solution box and have access to the VIP lounge and Entrance too. This means no queuing when you arrive or when you go to the bar.

All this for just the regular price of Online Dating membership!

Our aim is to run more and more new and exciting events so if there is anything you would like to see you do then please contact us.

We are simply the best

Thursday, June 4th, 2009

It’s often said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.   Well, it seems that a week doesn’t go by without yet another company trying to copy what we do.

Many companies come and go, trying to emulate our successful formula and running second rate events.  They try and use the venues we work so hard to find, attempt to poach our customers and undercut our prices. We’ve even found some who copy and paste the text from our website, using it as their own!  These companies don’t last very long.

We were the first company to introduce the ice-breaking card game, which other companies adapted into the Lock and Key game.  We also provide more (and better) hosts than anyone else.

Competition isn’t a bad thing as it makes us work harder.   We know that we are the industry leaders and have the most experience, busiest parties and nicest guests.  We offer the best value for money events and are in this for the longer term, rather than trying to make a quick buck and then disappearing.

As we move towards our 8th year of business, we promise to keep on trying out new ideas and events.  Asian Single Solution is the original and the best and we thank you for your support.

Bhangra Party

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009

Thank you to everyone that came to our Hindu & Sikh “Bhangra” Singles party at the Cuban Bar. We had over 150 guests who took part. For this party, we had DJ Precious who really made sure he got everyone dancing once the speed dating had finished.

We’re delighted to say that he’ll be back at some of our upcoming parties so do watch the website!
We’ve also had some great feedback as you’ll see below.

“Thanks for a great DJ – the speed dating part was great fun!”

“One of the best nights I have ever been to!”

“Really enjoyed the DJ and your staff were great!”

We took a few photos that we though you might enjoy.

Welcoming Asian DJ Precious to our parties

Wednesday, April 29th, 2009

We’ve often had requests to get a great DJ in for our Asian parties.  A good DJ means gives the parties a new focus as our guests can dance once the formal activities ( speed dating etc) are finished.  So we went looking for the best Asian DJ out there and we were delighted to find the legendary DJ Precious.

Parmjit Singh Bhamra’s (aka DJ PRECIOUS) has a unique style of hosting, djing and mixing Bhangra and Bollywood along with British beats.
DJ Precious will be spinning his decks at our 9th May party at the Abbey.  He has a huge following, so we expect lots of new guests to come along whenever he is playing. He’s been spreading the word and promoting our parties so we hope he will continue to play at many of our parties for along time to come.

We are looking into the possibility of getting more Asian DJs and entertainment into our events and even holding a special DJ focussed party.   Please let us know if you’d like us to arrange this.

Do come along on the 9th and help make this a big success.
