HOW TO FIND THE AMBER BAR VERY IMPORTANT: Nearest Tubes: Moorgate Exit 1/Liverpool Street (Broadgate Exit) Amber Bar is a cellar bar within a courtyard with no 'on street frontage'. See our Pic : https://www.meetup.com/Flying-Solo-Events/photos/29393898/475883602/ The best thing to do is to find the Halifax Bank on Moorgate - 167 Moorgate, EC2M 6XQ. You'll see you're at a crossroads. So head down the road which takes you behind the Halifax Bank, its called Ropemaker Street. A very short walk will take you to 'CityPoint' on your LEFT, which is a courtyard with quite a few skyscraper buildings in it: http://www.citypoint.org.uk/Core/Content/Public-Home-Page/Content6612.aspx . Once you've found Citypoint, it should be pretty easy to find, there are a few bars in the courtyard, Amber Bar is opposite/parallel to Simmons & Simmons building.

What we're about

"The first thing that attracted me to the group was the title, "Flying Solo." It describes we singles in a fun and liberating way. Meaning we are willing to spread our wings and open to new things. Fits me to a tee"

Flying Solo is an inspirational concept for single people in London. We are a social group for single people. We arrange social gatherings, networking, mingles, meals and parties for our members to meet up on a regular basis, make new friends, have fun and have a great time. Our aim is to empower single people and we reflect this in our events.

Membership of Flying Solo is free and our events are free or pay-as-you-go. To become a member all you need to do is join our email database, you can sign up for this when you attend your first event.

If you like to socialise and want to meet new people of the same and/or opposite sex, and find a lot of your mates don't go out because they are married/partnered up, not available due to childcare commitments, are always skint or just can't be bothered to go out, or you haven't got a 'significant other' that wants to take part in fun activities, then this is the group for you.

We arrange nights out at convenient venues where so that people can meet new people & regular members, get together, have fun and get to know each other in a relaxed, non pressurised environment. It is for people who like to socialise but do not want to be patronised or pressured into thinking that they must meet someone or be the life and soul of the party (if you want to be though that's fine too!). The aim is to have a good time, meet people, make new friends, build social confidence and have an enjoyable evening with others who are in the same boat.

All events are hosted, which means you’ll be meeted, greeted, made to feel welcome and introduced to other members (if you wish) and encouraged to mingle at every single event we run.

All of our events are suitable for members who want to attend 'on their own'. In fact most of our members, including female members, arrive Solo. You will be introduced to people upon arrival, some events we have a special Ladies table - for ladies who want to make friends and enjoy a cocktail and a natter before they mingle/party. We do not do any 'introduction games' or awkward male/female introductions & you will never be put under pressure or made to feel as though you need to meet or talk to someone on our events.

As a female led group, we are very female friendly. We know attending events and walking in to a bar/club on your own can be a nerve-wracking thing to do... so if you want to attend as a lady on her own to our events you will be very welcome and well supported.....

What people are saying about Flying Solo:

“ Last nights Yager Bar event great as my first event - friendly atmosphere to meet people my age, great host and plenty of food ”

— Paul (http://www.meetup.com/Flying-Solo-Events/members/204710165/) on Jun 2, 2016.

“ Good way to meet new people. ”

— Dionne (http://www.meetup.com/Flying-Solo-Events/members/29381362/) on Apr 14, 2016.

Please see our group review page (http://www.meetup.com/Flying-Solo-Events/about/comments/?op=all)for more feedback on our social events.

So if you're stuck in on a night and you want to do something with like minded people and not feel like a sad desperado, remember: Life is a Lottery, 'you've got to be in it to win it' , so get yourself involved!

We have currently have events for our members of All Ages, these are advertised as 'All Ages' events & for our 45 & above members, these are advertised as 45(ish)+ (FS45+).

Our All Ages group has no age restrictions but you should note that most of our members are by default, overall in their 30s, 40s & 50s. We are not an 'ageist' group or strict on age limits, but experience has shown me that people of different age groups/generations do sometimes enjoy different types of nights out/different atmospheres/venues etc and I try to take that into account when I create the different meetups.

Look out for meet ups coming up and suggestions for what people would like to do are always welcome, or if you'd like to host your own events or co-host with me- great! Please drop me an email or see me at events with your ideas. Constructive feedback and ideas on how we can improve our events are always welcome and valued , please email me on sarah@flyingsoloevents.co.uk or see me in person at an event.

How to get the most out of Flying Solo Meetup Group

• Please read the meetup info before you RSVP - Sounds obvious but a lot of people don't. Some meetups may not be your thing - I try to provide as much info for you to make an informed choice - but you can't do this if you don't read the info.

• You are much more likely to make friends if you come to events regularly. People come along on our meets to see other people they have met on previous meets! & believe it or not its a small world - even on London Meetup! If you attend regularly, you will soon notice our 'regular faces' as well as meeting new people each and every event.

• Have a clear profile photoso that other members can see who you are. Nothing fancy, no cats, dogs, landscapes or other people in your pic, just a nice face shot so people can recognise you on Meetup. If you need a nice pic doing, please let me know & I'll take one for you.

• Interact with members between meets using meetup event message boards. Be friendly... say hi, introduce yourself, join in with the pre & post event banter! People will feel that you are friendly and like they know you already when they meet you at the meet!

Look forward to meeting you at our warm, fun, relaxed and friendly group!
