Casual Drinks - Last one for 2018
Drinks at a lovely local place - that's it :) We're a friendly bunch of people and there's always some newbies, so don't be worried if it's your first time. Find me and say hi, I'll introduce you! Any questions, just give me a shout via the message system. I will never charge for these meetups, but appreciate a contribution in the form of wine at any time!

What we're about

This is a group for anyone looking to find friends and socialise in Haarlem, Netherlands.

We meet pretty much every other Thursday for the "Casual Drinks", always in the same place (I'm Local). We are a mixed group that meets for drinks regularly and also occasionally organises supping, trail running, bootcamp, bake-offs, days out, picnics, bike rides, board games nights and anything you can think of!

We want this to be a group where everyone feels welcome and a community is created where real friendships can flourish. Join this group if you like smaller, cosier meetups with friendly people. We live in an impersonal age of technology and it can be really hard to make friends in a new place.

If you like larger gatherings with more people, have a look at ExpatsHaarlem ( They organise drinks once a month which are generally much bigger.

We generally speak English, but we have many Dutch members as well.
