Mai Tai Group



We provide two things - networking events where you can meet new people to grow your social and professional circles, and a premium matchmaking service which connects like-minded professionals at top restaurants.

Our events attract professional people who want to make new connections by sharing their interests and experiences.

Why Mai Tai? Quite simply, Mai Tai is my favourite cocktail and it's Tahitian for very good. Of course, cocktails are all about having a good time, relaxing and having fun. Which is exactly what we want to offer you, a chance to meet great people who have a passion for enjoying life in the city.

As a Londoner, I am truly proud of my city, after all, I live in one of the best cities in the world! London has so much to offer in both the social and professional scene. Over the years I have met so many cool people, attended great workshops, classes and events which have all been good fun. With so many good experiences I thought that it would be awesome if every professional Londoner had a more convenient way to access the perfect work/life balance so I am inviting you to come and discover a London you have not yet met. 


These days connection is all about poking, liking or winking. People laugh at me for only having twenty-one friends on Facebook but the truth is that as everyone’s virtual friendship groups keep growing really quickly, ironically this is often done in the solitary confinement of their own homes, where there is little opportunity for actual face to face interaction. I want to coax people out of their onesies and back into the city where the real fun is happening. Don’t get me wrong I love Netflix and I think they really know me well but Mai Tai has access to the biggest and best events in London and I am personally inviting you to come and join us. 

My background in teaching all aspects of Biology for the last ten years has led me to explore the science of falling in love in depth. Instead of just leading talks about love in the digital age and the mathematics of love I decided to create a dating club as an alternative to online dating that doesn't already exist! Finding a partner in the city is time-consuming for busy professionals so the package we offer makes it easier for foodies to connect with each other in great restaurants and become friends or even something more!

And finally, pulling off a project this fantastic takes a lot of time and effort and I have had a great team around me to make this happen. So big shout out to the rest of the Mai Tai team who helped the business plan become a reality.

Best regards Shar
