March Jazz Dinner at 28-50 By Night

There’s something rather mischievous about stepping down a flight of stairs into a jazz club. With a seductive low-lit room, your eyes are drawn to the well-lit stage, warming up for some on stage action as the evening goes on.

28:50 By Night – is a hybrid breed, part of the successful wine restaurant group, it’s a budding newcomer to the jazz scene.  Setting itself up nicely to lead the charge for being able to provide first class music along with an impeccable food and wine menu.

Our Rendezvous Member’s Jazz dinners are a bit different to our usual stand-up mix and mingle events. We bring together a wonderful group of like-minded people for an enjoyable sit-down dinner and drinks.  With a backdrop of excellent music, our group of men and women (10 of each) enjoyed excellent conversation and a certain amount of sassy fun!

And it sounds like the members enjoyed it too…

“Hi Barbara,

Many thanks for organizing the jazz dinner this week.  I liked the format and had some interesting chats.

I thought the food was terrific and they did a great job ensuring everyone was served.  The jazz was lovely –I couldn’t believe it when I looked at my watch and it was after midnight!

Have a great weekend

February’s Jazz Dinner – Boisdale

Wednesday 23rd February

Boisdale of Belgravia | 15 Eccleston Street | London | SW1W 9LX 

It felt so convivial and decadent, almost like a speak-easy at our wonderful Boisdale Jazz dinner last week in Belgravia. Boisdale is one of those, you never know what’s going to happen, type of restaurants; you’ve just got to roll with how you are feeling on the night.  Spontaneity puts the fun and spice in our lives.

So, this is how we do it, a bit different to our usual stand-up drink and mingle events. We bring together a wonderful group of like-minded people for an enjoyable sit-down dinner and drinks and a good old fashioned chat, all from the comfort of those things called chairs.

Boisdale’s MD helps us out by mixing up his Single friends with our guests, keeping it lively and entertaining.  I move the group around a few times, without being too pushy, just enough to keep the conversations flowing.

With the charming Boisdale backdrop of excellent live music, our group of men and women, (10 of each), enjoyed excellent conversation with a certain amount of fun cheekiness.

To join the waitlist for our next Jazz dinner – please do email me.  They sell out quickly, but we will do more!

First Party of 2022 – Deal Breakers

Wednesday 26th January

Martinez | 49 Greek Street | W1D 4EG

What a way to start 2022, Martinez was full to the brim with singles looking to socialize.  We enjoyed mixing up new and regular guests in the wonderful Martinez in Soho; fun was definitely on the agenda.

Our special guest Sara Davison, The Divorce Coach talked openly about the importance of not just focusing on what you want but identifying the five must NOT have these are the deal breakers for you.

From Sara Davison

“Wow what a fun evening with such a wonderful crowd! I was honored to be invited to speak and bring some of my Accredited Breakup and Divorce Coaches to offer support and advice. 

January is always a busy month for breakups as the festive season puts so much pressure on relationships. I spoke about how to avoid the pitfalls of dating and shared my tips on learning to trust again after a divorce.  

Remember to have your list of up to 5 Dating Deal Breakers! These are things that you know you will not work for you long term in a relationship and are absolute must not haves from a partner. If they come up, you deploy your parachute and leave! 

I loved meeting you all and hope you find what you’re looking for very soon. 

For more information about Coaching sessions with Sara and her team, or training to become a Coach with Sara visit or book a call to speak to our team here.”

Many of you spent time with her team so we would like to thank Lucy, Angela, Mick and Michelle.

Marvelous  Martinez

We loved sharing our favorite secret club with you. So many compliments on this plush, dimly lit space for its charm, mystery and intrigue. The nibbles by Michelin-starred chef Hervé Deville were hoovered up in seconds.

Their mixologist delighted in creating line-ups of vintage cocktails and much-loved classics. Members remember you have three months complimentary membership so you can drop in for a cozy cocktail this spring.

Thank you to the team Maurice Marshall and Izzy Lyth who hosted this unforgettable night.  I believe cocktails, conversations and camaraderie were flowing into the early hours of Thursday.

Single socializing should be fun, so don’t put the pressure on to find Mr or Ms Right. Mr or Ms right now will be fine. Join us to meet a room full of singles that will help you get back into dating and boost your confidence.

Let’s keep meeting people and having fun.

Some lovely feedback

Dear Barbara,

Firstly, Thank you (& Lou plus everyone else) for an amazing evening. I thoroughly enjoyed meeting everyone, and Sara’s great tips! Martinez is a fantastic place, and everyone was lovely. 

Good morning, Barbara

It was a pleasure to see you last Wednesday. It was a great event and I met splendid people. 


What a fab evening: I really enjoyed seeing you again –  and meeting new people!

Once again, thank you for organising these events!

Dear Barbara and Lou,

What a fabulous evening you hosted for everyone last night. Such fun to see you both looking gorgeous and not a day older, catch up with old familiar faces and meet new friends. I had such a lovely time

Take care until we meet again.

Good evening, Barbara

What a delightful evening – we both thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Keep us both posted – it was lovely to be out and lovely to meet your sparkle.

Wedding Bells are ringing in 2022

Welcome to 2022, we look forward to enjoying a year full of fun Rendezvous socials – you never know who you are going to meet.

With that in mind, we wanted to share with you a gorgeous story sent to us this week by a former Rendezvous guest, we hope this fills you with joy as much as it did for us.

“I was introduced to Rendezvous at the end of 2016 and came to my first event at the Hippodrome in one of its private rooms. It was enjoyable and I even got a reading from the Psychic you had invited.  Her prediction is about to come true and the groom to be was at that event too, although more focused on the gambling than the girls and we didn’t meet then.


The next event I attended was great fun, whisky and chocolate tasting at Boisdale and the third was in a restaurant called Bernardi’s. I got stuck in the middle of a very crowded room at the same time as an attractive and interesting man who just made me laugh. He still does. Our first date followed the same week.


We moved in together in 2019 and we are getting married in March. I thought you’d like to know because we are so happy and well suited. I have never got married before (he’s divorced) and certainly wasn’t expecting to get hitched at this stage of my life. So, thank you so much for organising Rendezvous as we’d never have met without it. “
