Hinge, the dating app that connects users to people in their social circles, just launched in London. 

To celebrate, the company held a glitzy party in a London hotel rooftop bar and invited some people along for champagne and real-life conversation. We went along to see how excited people were about another dating app arriving on the scene. 

The party was held on the top of this building: Sea Containers at the Mondrian Hotel on London's South Bank.

It was on the top floor and the views there are pretty impressive.

Hinge is about meeting people you might know in real life. It doesn't select random people from a set area, but those you might otherwise see at a dinner party, or a gathering of old school friends.

The app says users find "real people," "through real friends," and in "real life." It's big in America. These two were chatting away nicely.
