What we're about

Our group is for men and women over 30. We will still be offering the female networking to put ladies in touch with each other beforehand when our events start again. I know from experience how hard it is when a lady becomes single and wants to get out to meet a new partner and make new single friends along the way. It is difficult when all of your friends are in couples and your attached friends cannot come out with you at the weekend to a singles event if they don't wish to cause problems in their relationships. Coming out alone is not easy so we put ladies in touch with each other so they can have a chat before coming to an event together.
I should add that this is what we do for our events with Contact Singles. I daresay the other organisers of events promoting on this group have their own type of ice-breakers.

Welcome to another of the exclusive event

Mr Fogg's Apothecary is home to an adventurous collection of curative tonics, restorative remedies and compounded libations from around the world. We truly love the design of this venue, it is centrally located, it is cool, and, we will have a reserved area for us.

This event is designed for London based professionals and entrepreneurs to get together, mix and mingle, and build long lasting relationships. As always with our events, you will find a mix of regular guests and new comers.

The hosts will be on site to make introductions and some of our regular guests also enjoy doing that. The overall vibe is relaxed, informal, and at the same time, valuable connections are being made. It is a very simple formula, and it does work each time.

We expect to reach full capacity for this event before the event date, early booking is highly recommended. The majority of our events sell out in advance, and this will be one of those for sure.

A bit more about the venue, located on Brook Street opposite the iconic Claridge’s hotel, the elegant new Victorian Apothecary transports guests into Phileas’ wonderfully eccentric world. Follow a majestic grand staircase leading down to an impressive long bar, stocked to the rafters with his extensive apothecary collection. Here, Mr Fogg’s Apothecary team prescribe, formulate, measure out and dispense the perfect cocktail serves, with precise weighing scales at hand.

The full address of the venue is: 34 Brook Street, London, W1K 5DH, United Kingdom
