Talk to strangers over lunch!

Similar to the usual talking to strangers events but with great Hungarian food.

We'll have a mixture of conversation starters and QI style facts to ponder. All of which are only suggestions to get the conversation flowing and you're more than welcome to bring along your own ideas of topics.

 

We encourage you to move tables at various points of the afternoon. It's relaxed and informal geared around good conversation, thought provokers and current affairs. Don't worry you don't have to buy 3 courses of food! Simply order whatever you want.

We usually spend a couple of hours over lunch, then head for a few drinks nearby - which of course is optional.

As usual this social is joined with members of thinking bob.

Cost: £5

 

THE VENUE

gayhussarwineThe Gay Hussar can be said, without a shadow of a doubt, to be one of London’s most famous restaurants.
A long time haunt of top politicos and media types – well, it is in the centre of swinging Soho after all – this fine restaurant has been flying the Hungarian flag over the English capital for more than fifty years now.

Cosy and comfortable but certainly not without elegance, The Gay Hussar’s dining room is anything but generic with higgledy piggledy rows of books lining the room and endless caricatures of notorious public figures fuelling thousands of conversations.
An interesting range of authentic Hungarian dishes and matching Hungarian wines complete this unusual experience.

Diners included T.S. Eliot, Mortimer Wheeler, Aneurin Bevan, Barbara Castle, Ian Mikardo and Michael Foot

The restaurant was named in honour of the elite Hussars of the Hungarian army.The name is also associated with the name of a popular Hungarian operetta, The Gay Hussars, by Emmerich Kálmán.
