where minds meet

Meet new people at fun, unique events and socials around the city.

Meet new people and make new friends…the Thinking Bob way!

New People, New Friends, New Discoveries

In a city where walking unnaturally fast is considered polite, and eye contact is considered an excuse to move seats, chances to meet new people don’t come often. However, this is where thinking bob come in. We make it fun and exciting to find new friends  – and remove awkwardness from the equation.

Thinking Bob is an easy way to kill two social birds with one stone – a way to discover an exciting new place along with 50 potential new friends.

We’re all guilty of ‘just never getting round to’ visiting that museum we pass on the bus, or lamenting the fact that we never meet new people because all of our existing friends have settled down.

But we live in one of the greatest cities in the world, so how about a treasure hunt in a London museum, or Saturday night drinks in town to help you experience it? We’ll even get you your first drink in! Start your free trial now.

The online tools help you take control of your social life.

Our socials very much about getting off line and into the real world but we make good use of technology to get you there and in contact with the people you meet. You can keep up to date with the people you get on with and what socials they’re attending and even host private events for your new social circle.


The hosting team know a thing or two about bringing new people together for a good time.

When you get to a social, you’ll be greeted by one of the trusted hosts – they always meet new members at the door so you’ll know at least one face. Once everything kicks off, the action is geared towards shared experiences and conversation starters – no awkward small talk needed here!
