What makes us different?


RENDEZVOUS is run by a small team who were disillusioned with digital dating. Loving parties and working a room they got together to host the best and friendliest parties for singles professionals. Stunning venues create an ideal setting to meet and connect. Guests are invited to bring a friend of the opposite sex to ensure a balanced mix. A waiting list system operates for single tickets.

We carefully select energetic, attractive and successful people; people we would have at our parties– it’s our guests that make the atmosphere at our parties so fun, exciting and, some might say, addictive!

At each event our special team of introducers make sure everyone is meeting new people and enjoying themselves.

About Barbara

Barbara is your host at every Rendezvous party. A whiz at finding sophisticated new venues and creating gorgeous parties along with synergistic luxury brands. She has a knack for weaving in new interesting people and, in her own words, ‘is a collector of lovely people.’

Barbara’s career has been defined by a series of iconic start-ups within telecoms, entertainment and fashion; among them, the creation of a London club that defined a whole generation: Fabric. After its sale in 2003, she launched New York-based Lingerie label Spoylt, combining a delectable high-end collection with an enviable list of A-list celebrity clientele.

She leads Investor Relations for a London-based consultancy raising capital for entrepreneurs. Alongside financial matchmaking, she represents the exclusive offline matchmaking agency MacLynn in London & Monaco, connecting their UHNW clients. She combines her incredible network with an intuitive sense of compatibility.

Barbara is no stranger to the dating game. “I was disillusioned by dating online and felt that even my friends would never send me on blind dates, as the nice men were all married or busy with young children. In 2014 I seized the opportunity to run Rendezvous and was excited to create something that people really need – a safe place to meet, connect and have fun.”
