What we're about

This is a group for people who would like to find love and make new friends in London. You are bored of being solo and would like to change that. You are either new to meetup or have been on meetup for a long time and are tired of how the social activities have deteriorated in the other meetup groups in London. Here is how we will do things differentlyYou are either new to meetup or have been on meetup for a long time and are tired of how the social activities have deteriorated in the other meetup groups in London.

Here you can see everyone from different cultures and races meeting and having a great time and this is what we tend to achieve everytime we host!

Here is how we will do things differently -
Ever since Covid has occurred the world has changed ways in how we function and operate.
Meeting people of various cultures has become difficult with various restrictions and with online events people rarely have the opportunity of meeting face to face and this results in not getting the right opportunity to meet in person.
We will always have hosts at all our events. You will always be greeted by someone
at all our events and introduced to others. (Warm & welcoming hosts to help you
mingle!)

We will minimise no shows by requiring attendees to pay a deposit in advance. No
shows are misleading and not fun for organisers nor for members.

We will not disguise organisation costs in opaque ticket prices, commissions from
bars or inflated set menu prices.

We will instead ask for a small charge of a few pounds to help us manage the group and its activities. (Very Transparent)

We will strive to attract a high quality membership who prefer higher quality
venues and events. We will not be driven by happy hours, free food etc...(as all
of these are eventually balanced out by much higher prices later)

We will constantly request members to help us host events and take a lead on
activities so that we have energy and variety.

I very much hope that you will join us and create a vibrant social community
which is close knit and high quality.

Join us on Saturday, 10th December from 6.00 pm onwards at the exclusive Sway Bar, where you can meet other ladies and gents. You will be able to interact with like minded people of your age group, relax and maybe exchange a few numbers.

Why should you attend our meetups?
- We have hosted meetups in over 30 cities world over for the last 10 years with over 50 meetups a month where 1000s of social connections, friendships and relationships have been created. We understand our member needs.

- We tend to have space earmarked for our groups so you get a comfortable and safe environment to mix and mingle at our meet-ups. Our meet-ups are well planned and organised.

- You will generally find a good gender balance (though not perfect) at all our events. Gender balance changes by city, weather, season, event type, age group etc but we try our best to achieve that.

- Our meet-ups are formally hosted and so our hosts are able to welcome you and help you with introductions with some of the other attendees and also settle down. You have absolutely no need to be apprehensive, nervous or worried about coming alone.

- We charge a minimal event cost for a couple of reasons. Our host has to be compensated for their time and work. Further safety is our priority. When we sell tickets we get a record of people attending through online payments. It provides for better behavior and accountability. We also believe free events equal no commitment and poor behavior. People RSVP and then don't attend. Our tickets help us improve safety, better estimate numbers, better gender mix and promote more responsible behavior.

- Many Free events also tend to only serve the needs of organisers (and their close friends) who then use them to market their products or services or in some cases give them easy access to members of the opposite gender. We have never really seen organisers of free events do them for altruistic reasons. At most times they tend to have an undisclosed but dubious reason to do them. We don't! We only organise our events to help members and overall cover our costs.

Our socials are designed for like minded people who are looking to forge new friendships and build their networking in the city!

We have a reserved area under Meetup/Anna which is reserved from 6.00 pm until 9 pm. Join us and get started on making new connections and friendships!

SWAY BAR - Located in the heart of Holborn, an extravagant and beautiful place to meet with equally extravagant and beautiful people.. At night, the DJs come in so you can fill the floor and dance until late.

HAPPY HOUR until 8 pm - Offer includes:
50% off spirit and mixer
50% off beers
50% off cocktails
Bottles of wine for £11.50
Bottles of Prosecco for £14

  • We have our area reserved for Anna/Meetup. Please ask the bar staff for Anna and they will help you find the group.
  • Anna will be at the venue from 6.00pm. She will welcome you warmly at the venue and will also help with introductions.

-We have 17 meetup groups in London with over 180,000 members and we will be inviting members of all ages from most of these groups. You will meet a lot of new people. (Members of other groups who RSVP are included as guests of the organiser in order to give you an idea of expected numbers.)

We are not a dating group. Our group is created to help ladies and gents meet and make new friends. At times we may not have a gender balance, so please do not attend if a gender balance is important to you.
