  • This location is shown only to members

Socialize with fellow Europeans in a stylish lounge bar. This event is specially for European expatriates and BAFOE regulars. 

If you are from Europe and want to make interesting new friends, have substantial conversations, compare notes on life in America, practice your language skills or just have fun, come join us! Drop in when you can and stay for as long as you want. Newcomers are especially welcome. You'll discover a friendly group.

(Our definitions: You're a European expat if you were born and/or raised in or near Europe, or in a former European territory; and a BAFOE regular if you attend events on a regular basis and have already been to at least three other BAFOE events. Sorry, but if you don't qualify you will be removed from the RSVP list. Click here for the rationale. Please come instead to the next Friends of Europe Soirée.)

BART/Muni is a short walk away. There is street parking and garage parking within a block at 75 Howard ($6 for 4 hours) and Rincon Center ($10 for 8 hours). Click here for details.

Check in at the welcome table to receive your Friends of Europe name badge: your passport to mingling!  Happy Hour drinks and appetizers are available. There is a one drink or appetizer minimum for this event. The event will end around 7pm to allow people to dine together afterwards if they wish. 

Please RSVP YES only if you are fairly confident that you - and your guest if you are bringing one - will be able to attend. Events are always full, so if your plans change or your guest cannot come please update your RSVP so that someone else can come instead. 

No-Shows are recorded.  See our RSVPs & No-Show Policy!

    Hello, I am on the waiting list. When will I know if I can attend the event? Thank you

    April 10, 2014

    • Geoff

      Hi Marylene. You are fairly high up the WAIT list so you should get in. You'll receive an email when you're moved on to the YES list. This could happen any time up to 6 hours before the event starts but very likely by Saturday. Cheers, Geoff
