    Event Info: 

    We have exclusive FULL VENUE HIRE of Amber Bar, Citypoint Courtyard (Nearest Stations Moorgate/Liverpool Street & Bank) GOOGLE MAP LINK. Amber is a well located, purpose built cellar bar with TWO AMAZING PARTY ROOMs. 

    MUSIC/PARTY ROOMS 

    We've got the 'Opulent' Opal Lounge where the music will be the more 'up to date stuff', Mainstream/R&B/Dance/Commercial/Party Classics

    In the 'Really Cool' Retro Room (70s style with illumnated dancefloor) we will be playing a tasteful mix of oldies/party classics from the 70s, 80s & 90s. 

    We also have use of the Amber Bar - which will be opened up for use as a 'chill out zone' with more ambient music, lower volume and relaxed vibe.

    We have our amazing Resident DJ Grant who has been our DJ at parties since March - as usual he will be playing a mix of appropriate party tunes which will help you get you 'moving and a grooving', and taking requests on the day. We also have the fabulous DJ Paul who one or two of you may know from Amber/Piccadilly Institute (giving him a well deserved night off the Cheese!) 

    The venue is all ours! This means ..... we can celebrate New Years Eve in style, at a great location, we can have the music we like to hear plus requests and can have a great party, just the way we like it! And we have all night long transport! So we can party until the wee small hours!

    PARTY THEME

    The theme is Masquerade Ball /  Fun Accessorising... But as usual with all of our parties, Masks & accessorising are fun but completely OPTIONAL! The more the merrier, but if you don't want to participate that's cool (most people will not!) We will have a limited stock of masks for sale on the night on a FIRST COME FIRST SERVED basis... So if you want a mask get there early as I cannot reserve them for people. Alternatively use Ebay, but order in time!! Ebay Link for Masks

    For those not wishing to participate in fancy dress (most people will not) etc- thats totally cool, the dress code will be Smart Casual/Dressed up but not formal.

    PARTY INFO:

    We had 185 for our last years' NYE party, we've had a record of 212 at our Gherkin singles party back in July and so we are expecting an amazing turnout for this event, in the region of 250 amazing London Singles. We do not make our numbers RSVPs up and we always put the total amount of people we've had upon past events.. We do not guarantee 50/50 M to F ratio but we will try our best. 

    No food available at this venue - so please remember to eat beforehand as I cannot guarantee anywhere is going to be open to buy food in that area on NYE, however we will be providing some free snacks, nibbles and sweets to keep members fueled up and ready to party!

    I have fab hosts, Mel & Yiannis confirmed and many more joining me on the night they will be there to meet and greet you, introduce you to others, help you to mingle and get you in the party mood!

    HOW TO FIND THE AMBER BAR VERY IMPORTANT: 

    Nearest Tubes: Moorgate/Liverpool Street (Broadgate Exit)

    Amber Bar is a cellar bar within a courtyard with no 'on street frontage'.

    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.

    Please do some research and plan your journey using smartphone googlemaps/streetmap or just an old fashioned London A-Z prior to leaving and have some idea where you are going. 

    Some places in London can be difficult to find and hosts cannot be held responsible for people getting lost or not able to find places.

    • Please arrive EARLY i.e. 8.00pm for better intros mingling & conversations, especially if you are a new member. Its very hard for hosts to do intros later on in the night when people are well into their convos and a bit tipsy and nigh on impossible when it is packed, the music is loud and the party is in full swing! If you arrive later we will do our best 

    • A cloakroom is available on the night. Price £1 for coats, £1 for bags

    120 tickets sold & 21 days to go! Quick message to y'all thinking about it..YOU DO NOT NEED FRIENDS to attend this or have a good time. We will introduce you to people when you arrive (providing you arrive EARLY!) Our members are really friendly and welcoming. We are all in the same boat. If you don't have plans for NYE you don't need to stay at home, you can be out having fun with other people like yourself. There is nothing to be ashamed of. I used to be in this situation - I was sick of it, relying on unreliable people who didn't really want to do the same things as me -hence I created Flying Solo.. now I have literally hundreds of really brilliant people out with me every weekend. Do not miss this unique opportunity to start the New Year as you mean to go on! Lifes' what you make it - now anybody else joining me we have a very important appointment on the dancefloor[masked] approx 8.30pm?
