We at The Kickback are a fresh events company uniting young professionals in London.
We have a clear vision of what we want to build in this world; we imagine a world where young professional people can be authentic, connect and have fun with new like-minded people at a social event beyond the typical nightclub.
Everything we do is helping to build that world, from connecting single Black men and Single Black women to making a space for Black professionals in London and around the world.
Our mission is to create an alternative experience for people that want to simply to chill out and kickback so we curate a range of events from speed dating, adult games nights and themed Costume parties. While our networking and social events target Black professionals in London and our dating events target single Black men and single Black women; we do ensure that our events are inclusive
We have existed since 2013, when our founder Diane felt there was a gap missing in a market for a laid back social night that didn't consist of raving, screw faces and people vomiting. So Lela's Lounge was born an alternative social events company.
Since our beginnings 4 years ago over 5,000 young professionals have walked through our doors we have collaborated with some amazing brands such as Grenada Tourism Authority and have curated events in some of London's high class venues such as Gem bar in Soho to name a few.
At the start of 2017 we decided it was time for newness and so we evolved into The Kickback. The Kickback is an alternative experience for young professionals wanting to enhance their social life. Although currently based in London we have our eyes set on the world, there are no limits to what we can do.
