  • 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.

The venue is a short walk from the Powell St. BART/Muni Station. Nearby parking garages  include the Fifth & Mission Garage (hourly rate: $3.50, after 6pm $1.50) and Moscone Center Garage on 3rd St (hourly rate: $2, after 6pm $1; closes at 9pm). For street parking, the free app PARKNAV can tell you the optimal route to drive to find a spot.

Check in at the welcome table to receive your Friends of Europe name badge: your passport to mingling!  All glasses of wine and beer will be $3 off for the group. There is a one drink or appetizer minimum.

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 go instead.

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

    So sorry to miss this, but I'm volunteering a lot this month and Sundays are especially busy. Come visit me at the Sunday afternoon jazz concerts at the Filoli Estate and Gardens in Woodside and see why I spend so much time volunteering there. I'll be serving box lunches for four of them and being served a box lunch at two. I hope to catch you soon. Cheers!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
