Make new friends - Ladies & Gents (All ages) (FREE ENTRY/HOSTED/INTRO)
Please join us to make new friends for all ages! We are organising a fantastic evening of socializing, relaxing and mingling especially for all our members. You will be welcomed into the group by Mehdi and you will be able to meet and interact with other ladies and gentlemen in a safe and comfortable environment. We are organising our event at a venue called Mr. Pickwick's Pub which is quiet and cozy and provides for a fabulous venue to meet people and socialise with new friends. You have absolutely no excuse not to come out and make new friends in your age group! The Venue: The Mr Pickwick is one of the oldest pubs in Switzerland and was inaugurated in 1969. Built in classic Victorian style, it has been modernized whilst preserving a traditional character : wooden furniture, old period reproductions and brick walls! So no more nervousness, no awkward silences, no fiddling with phone or staring into glasses. You will find your self saying more hellos, shaking more hands and making more friends. Please come early as it is far easier to meet new people then. Please request Mehdi for help with introductions. Some important points: - Please be aware that about 95% of those who attend come alone and about 75% are attending for the first time. You will not be alone. We know how you may feel and so Mehdi will take care of you. - We have 3 meetup groups in Geneva with over 5,000 members and we will be inviting members of all ages from most of these groups.

Mr. Pickwick's Pub

80 rue de Lausanne · Genève

What we're about

Geneva can be a wonderful city for the globally aware expatriate. You may have however outgrown frenetic clubbing evenings and loud music and are yet not ready for long quiet evenings alone at home.

You may be looking to meet with compatible, well-travelled people with similar interests but diverse experiences, with the possibility of forging friendships based on deeper connections.

We will be mainly single but we will welcome couples and those of all ages, who prefer to socialise in relatively quiet locations where people can establish networks and friendships through interesting conversations and eloquent discussions.

We also like to party and dance on occasion and so our meetups are diverse. Our meet-ups are organised to ensure we are small enough in number to remember most names and make meaningful links with many members by the end of the evening. Yet large enough to ensure that you can choose who to talk to.

We try and maintain a reasonable balance between women and men at our events. We welcome expatriates and diplomats of all nationalities and internationally minded locals, however, we will be selective about our members in order to offer a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment where multinational members can feel confident about reaching out to each other, to create connections, companionships and contacts.

Our organisers will try to ensure that all new members are actively included in the group and facilitate introductions and help with ongoing interactions.
