How it works

We’ve identified the pain points people feel when trying to make new friends and solved them in 3 simple steps.

A feed that’s made for you

Our Recommendation Engine intelligently surfaces the people you’re mostly likely to resonate with. You’ll feel like the app was made just for you.


We focus on showcasing who people are, not just what they look like. Real friendships need real foundations.


We think about your schedule and interests when sorting people and recommending events in your feed.


Share what you want to do in one tap. With some of the best venues in London making their events available on our app, you’ll have no shortage of things to try.


Break out of your comfort zone with our wildcard suggestions. People and places you might not have thought of yourself, but ones we think you’d really enjoy.

We’ve implemented an opt-in system, which means you only accept conversations from people you’re interested in talking to.

Conversation starters

We automatically start the coversation by letting your potential friend know what you’d like to do with them and when.


We send reminders to you and your friend to help you get to the next step. Whether that’s booking your tickets or remembering when you’re going.

Safety first

With in-app reporting and direct chat support, we make sure to keep a high-quality and trusted community.

Tickets in one tap

No more faffing about trying to figure out where to book and who’s paid for what. Manage it directly in your chat.

One-tap booking

Pay in seconds with Pay as soon as you’re both ready to book.


We support industry standard technlogy for secure online payments. We never see, store or handle your card details.

No risk

Life doesn’t always go to plan, if one of you can’t make it we will do our best to find you someone else or refund your purchase.


If you’ve paid and your new friend hasn’t we’ll make sure to remind them to grab a ticket before they sell out to ensure you get to go to your chosen event with them.
