I will be hosting the event so will be there to meet & greet you, introduce you to other members if you wish and to encourage you to mingle with other members. I'm there from[masked]pm and some members may stay on after this time. 

IMPORTANT INFO:

This venue does not have a specific 'Happy Hour'. The bar has matched the happy hour prices of selected drinks to another bar in the area and keeps the prices like that all night. . ...Selected drinks only, see below:

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! Please come earlier for mingling, its hard to introduce people once they are chatting, in their groups & had a few drinks!

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 see me with any feedback/suggestions/constructive criticism.

    This is my first singles meet this year (I went to a Flying Solo party last year), I am not afraid to describe myself as a shy person, however I have regularly attended different social events, as well as getting involved with hosting some small social groups myself. But I need to improve my mingling skills amongst a group of people that I have never met before, thus putting myself out of my natural 'comfort-zone' for my better well-being.

    Just arrived to the train station, but trains to kings cross are running so late that I'll probably arrive when everyone is gone. So frustrating! I won't be able to join you today

    May 14

    • Sarah C.

      How annoying, ok Alvaro, we will see you another day no doubt... thanks for trying!

      May 16

  • Sarah C.

    Fabulous turnout for this new group! So inspired, thanks to all that came. Didn't get much chance to chat to anyone much because it was so busy all night! Please if you've enjoyed leave some feedback or group review, suggestions welcome of course, constructive feedback thanks and we will be doing it all again at the Loop Bar on 29th May, hope you can make it there!

  • jbswagger

    ya I think there should been some personality questionnaires to fill out at the event for members learn more about each other

    May 15

    • Vincenzo

      or you can ask :)

      1 · May 15

    • Sarah C.

      Thanks for your suggestion JB but the difference with our events is that we don't do things like that because it adds pressure to people at the event, hence we get really good turn outs like 85 members which is astounding. I think that sort of things puts people off which is why we don't bother with things like that.
