For gay male couples who are looking to make new friends and socialise off / on the scene with other couples. The group is for easy-going people into things like art, films, travel, music, food and drink and whatever else people want to do.
All members of the group are welcome to suggest meetup ideas and events. This can easily be done using the scheduling tool on the application.
Please note this group is NOT for single guys.
When requesting membership please introduce both partners.
Please note that Malcolm of 'Takuya and Malcolm' has taken over the group from the end of December 2018. Sen has agreed to help organise events. So the group will continue into 2019 and we hope beyond.
In recent days, some delightful new members have joined us, presumably after making a New Year’s Resolution to ‘get out and meet more people’, so we have chosen a place where we can all do just that.
New Bloomsbury Set (https://www.newbloomsburyset.net/) is a welcoming cosy basement bar just off Marchmont Street, around the corner from the Gays the Word bookshop. The most convenient tube is Russell Square on the Piccadilly Line. (You want to be right at the Heathrow end of the train for the quickest exit.) Cross the road and walk up Marchmont Street to your right, alongside the Brunswick Centre, until you get to the junction with Tavistock Place. You can also walk from Kings Cross, but it’s slightly longer and Russell Square avoids the commuter crowds.
I'll be there to greet you at any time between seven and nine, but if you arrive early and want to eat, there are plenty of independent and chain restaurants in the vicinity as well as the usual coffee shops.
The purpose of the evening is to chill and chat and get to know people. You might want to drink something while you are there, but we’ll leave that to you. I’ve put a duration of two hours for the event, but nobody will force you to go home if you are enjoying yourself.
I’d like to keep the bar updated on the numbers, so please RSVP and don’t forget to plus one for your partner. I’ve spent many a happy hour chilling out at the New Bloomsbury Set, and I hope you will find it as relaxing as I do. Hope to see you there.
Warm regards, Malcolm
