  • This location is shown only to members

  • Please join other London singles in a relaxed non-pressurised environment. We are going for after works happy hour drinks at brand new exciting venue Mary Janes!

    I am very very excited about this one as I have secured an amazing exclusive deal with this venue which should attract loads of Flying Solo Members. So I literally cannot wait!

    Not only do we have a fabulous venue (wait until you see it), great atmosphere, mega friendly staff, We have got 1 FREE DRINK per person (will be a taster cocktail) upon entry, FREE NIBBLES and a FANTASTIC HAPPY HOURs, with unbelievable prices!!


    Please join us for after work drinks at the fabulous Mary Janes (opposite Abbey Bar, Minories, City of London (nearest tubes Aldgate & Tower Hill)

    Mary Janes Bar (from View London): 

    "Mary Janes is an impressive bar that benefits from sumptuous decor, impeccable service and an exclusive feel. With a superb cocktail list as well as an impressive range of other drinks Mary Janes is a popular destination"

    I'll be hosting the event so will be there to meet & greet you, introduce you to other members as you wish I'm there from[masked]pm and some members may stay on after this time. I have checked with the management and we can have the music volume low so that we can have some good conversations. It is a large venue so we can have lots & lots of fab Flying Solo members there.


    Happy Hour is 5-8pm and is advertised as:

    • Cocktails 2 4 1

    • London Gin & Tonic 2 4 1

    • £9.90 for bottle or House Red, White or Rose Wine

    Please check with individual bar staff at time of at time of placing your drinks order for offers. Food is available at this venue, please order from bar/waiting staff.

    • Nearest Tubes: Aldgate & Tower Hill. Please do some research and plan your journey using smartphone googlemaps/streetmap or just an old fashioned London A-Z prior to leaving and have some idea where you are going. Some places in London can be difficult to find and I cannot be held responsible for people getting lost or not able to find places.

    • You do not have to arrive at 5.30 to join this event. Come down when you finish work, anytime between[masked] but no later please!

    • If you RSVP & change your mind, please cancel your RSVP. Regular no-showers prevent the enjoyment of meetups for other meetupers, so if you do not attend, you will be marked as a no show, and may be deleted from the group. 

    • Please make sure you have read all event info before attending.

    • Please arrive earlier for better mingling and intros, especially if you are a new member. Its very hard for me to do intros later on in the night when people are well into their convos and a bit tipsy.

    • Any comments/suggestions/feedback, please see me in person or email me post event. Appreciated!

    Hi All,

    Well as I'm sure you're all aware, the tube strike is now in full flow and will continue until Thursday evening. The result being that the majority of RSVP's are now unable to attend this evenings event. So I will regretfully be cancelling the meet-up this morning.

    Please feel free to RSVP for next weeks events. There is still a good chance that talks to avert the next strike will be successful, especially in the wake of this week's disruption. There is also the Valentines party on Friday 14th.

    Sorry but I can't get over to the venue without the tube, I was really looking forward to it too.
    :-( just put it down to a hiccup due to tfl. Looking forward to the next one !!

    Dear Sarah,
    Alas, Bob Crow has put a spanner in the works this time. I wish we could all make it but we don't work for TFL grrrr....
    So let's all make up for it by attending the next available Flying Solo event, ALL OF US !
    You too, you know who you are !

    Depending on the Tube really!!
    Hopefully will be ok!!!

  • Stephen

    Depends on whether the tube is running. When will you decide if this is going ahead?

      Hi Stephen, talks with ACAS continue later today (Tuesday) so I'll make a decision once I know the outcome. There is also a meet-up at the Yager Bar (St Pauls) later today that will definately be going ahead regardless.

    I am reliant on the tube ...just keeping my fingers and toes crossed :-)

    Hey all, keep up the RSVPs, and don't let your new year's resolution to meet new people, be derailed by the mere threat of a tube strike (excuse the punn).

    If the strike does go ahead I have the option of cancelling the event. Or if there are sufficient numbers not reliant on the tube then where better to spend a few hours while the crowds fight their way home.

    Rush Hour or Happy Hour. Its an easy choice :-)

      They should have a sing off in the Karaoke room.

      Hahaha Well said Harry, Ooops I mean Andy :) I agree Sarah, nothing's gonna stop us now ( ahh another song for me to sing when super drunk :) ) but I think the idea of them in the karaoke room together would not make sweet music at all .... hmm I wonder what they would choose to sing... this could become a good debate :)

      February 1, 2014

  • Sarah C

    There is a tube strike but if there is we may either cancel or Andy will host, as he doesn't need the tube. So keep RSVPing folks and we'll update you should we need to.... very often these things get called off at the last minute!

    Sorry guys tube strike today see ya soon x

    January 31, 2014

  • Michael C

    Hey Hey, I should be there although there is the threat of strikes on the tube for both this weeks meet up and next weeks. Obviously if they go ahead it could impact on how many peeps can make it but hopefully they will be called off and it can be another Wonderful Wednesday :)

      Ok Mr C, I'm relying on you to pull a few strings with TFL and remove any threat of a strike. If not we'll need you to hire a tube for the evening so you can collect all the guests and return them home later.

      Ha ha I will see what I can do :) Would be kind of cool to do that though :)

    Roses are red, Violets are blue,
    Come to the party and meet someone new.

    Yes the countdown to Valentines has started and what better way to warm-up than an evening at the very popular Mary Janes. Make some new acquaintances and perhaps renew some from a previous meet-up ahead of the big day.

    This is a fabulous venue with a relaxed atmosphere and just perfect for meeting new people. And there’s more … One free taster cocktail on arrival, free nibbles, happy-hour from 5pm to 8pm, and thereafter 50% off bottles of wine, and if that’s not enough you get me thrown-in as host for free. So just click on the RSVP and I’ll see you there.

    I'm away but I still want you to have fun in my absence so Andy is very kindly piloting the plane for me tonight... have fun everyone & see you when I get back.
