HOW TO FIND OUR AREA AT BAR SOHO 

We have the reserved area on the ground floor in Bar Soho. Please look for signs when you arrive or ask staff for help. 

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.

You do not have to arrive at 5.45pm to join this event. Come down when you finish work, anytime try an get there by 9pm if you can. 

Please make sure you have read all event info before attending. 

•  To join this FREE event you'll need to join the Flying Solo mailing list or text events - you'll be asked to complete your details upon arrival - If you don't want to there will be a meetup charge of £3

• Dress Code: Smart casual Trainers are OK, no tracksuit bottoms or jackets, or hoodies.

• Free food - is a SHARE OF A SHARING PLATTER -It is not a full meal and has to go round the whole group- its provided complimentary by the venue so I cannot guarantee how much food you are going to get if any. If you need something more substantial please order food from the bar or eat before the event or pop out and get something.

We do not guarantee or organise the M to F ratio at this event & you should note that our events ARE VERY POPULAR AND VERY FULL WITH MEN. If this is an factor that is going to affect the enjoyment of your event - please consider the RSVP list before you arrive. You can work out for yourself how many people of each are going to arrive and make your own choice about whether to attend or not.

• Please make an effort to chat to people, participate and and mingle at the event. I bring venue and people together and there is no formula for fun, the event is what you make it!  

• If you RSVP & change your mind, please cancel your RSVP. Regular no-showers prevent the enjoyment of meetups for other meetupers, so if you do not attend, you will be marked as a no show, and may be deleted from the group.

• Please arrive earlier for better mingling and intros, especially if you are a new member. Its very hard for me to do intros later on in the night when people have grouped off, are well into their convos and a bit tipsy. 

• Any comments, suggestions and feedback is always welcomed, moaning/venting is not. Please see me in person or email me post event. Appreciated. Attendance of all our FS events is subject to FS Meetup Group Rules 

• Most of all, come with a positive attitude and have fun!

      Me too - but they had a more lucrative booking in there that was £££ hence we got relagated downstairs - just one of the reasons I dont like doing meets @ Xmas.... Back to normal in the new year & I have some new & exciting venues!!

    Please come with a positive attitude, be friendly and introduce yourself to others - there is no way in hell I can introduce everyone - so members will need to be proactive tomorrow! If you do require more support/help/first time, let me know - I will do what I can! If you are new please note our more established members are always welcoming and supportive of our 'newbies'.

      Arrive early (if you can) for better minging & happy hour is bah humbug only until 7pm so arrive on time and order a couple of drinks at the bar because I can guarantee the bar will be rammed from 6.40 onwards... most of us like a drink or two in this group so if you've got 1+ drinks - no judgement! Plus its Christmas..well, near enough.

      FREE FOOD - is a share of a sharing platter - it has to go round the whole group - please be considerate to other group members - if you need a full meal please eat before or order something from the bar.

      Last but not least! If you wish to buy tickets for the parties below - you can pay in cash tomorrow night - thats CASH not card, thanks. Please see me after 8 when most people have arrived and I'll sort the payments out. If you don't pay cash tomorrow night there is the option to pay online at a later date.

      FS45+ Xmas Party Sat 10th December

      Flying Solo All Ages NYE Party Sat 31st December.
