"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.

• 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, another Wednesday approaches along with another great opportunity to meet-up for a fun evening at MJs. This is a great venue for meeting and mingling with new people. The ambiance is friendly and relaxed, as are the members of this group.

    A free taster cocktail on arrival, free nibbles and excellent happy-hour prices. Along with background music at a volume that creates the right atmosphere for easy conversation. (There's even a karaoke room for any that might wish to partake).

    Looking forward to seeing you all there :-)
