The Lovestruck free for all

It may sound like one, but it isn’t an orgy. All you need to know is that over 400 Lovestruckers and their single friends will be there.  There is no entry fee, no RSVP, no nametags, no games and no rules.

Simply ask for a red straw (entirely optional), drink and let some gorgeous Lovestrucker spot your straw and chat you up. (Or chat up someone with a straw, if you’re feeling proactive.)

Hidden on a backstreet near St Paul’s Cathedral, Patch Bar is a stylish cocktail bar, spread over two floors with loads of drink offers on the night.

Tell all your single friends/colleagues and bring them with you. They don’t have to be a Lovestrucker. They don’t even have to be single. Hell, they don’t even have to be your friend. That’s the beauty of this night, baby. It’s all about fun.
