Soho Coffee Posse (21 Nov 2018)
The Soho Coffee Posse meets on Wednesday evenings allowing you to socialise and relax with real gay people in the real world without spending too many pink Pounds. We have different and new people every time so it's always fresh. Our venue is quiet so conversation is easy. Normally loads of seats become available at the time we start. The official part of the event starts at 7:15pm and continues until 9:15pm. You can come and leave anytime between these times. We then usually move to Caffe Nero 43 Frith Street for the unofficial Soho After Posse. Here you can consume more coffee, tea and food. We stay here until at least 11pm. Note that finding suitable seating at the After Posse is challenging and may be less convivial than the official Posse. It helps greatly that you RSVP for this event as early as possible even if you are not definite. I'll then know you're coming and it encourages more people to attend. If you have RSVPed and you have a picture from which you can be recognised, I will keep a look out for you. Note that there are also people attending who aren't members of Meetup. This is a free event but you are expected to buy something in the venues to eat and/or drink. Without the venues we won't be able to meet. A coffee, tea or hot chocolate gets you a stamp on the Caffe Nero loyalty card. We are currently meeting most Wednesdays. It's advisable to check this space before coming to verify that we are meeting. We sometimes takes photos during the event which are published on this site. If you don't want to be in the photos, please tell me

    What we're about

    The Soho Coffee Posse is a regular weekday evening social gathering in the coffee bars of Soho. We aim to provide a space for gay / bi / questioning men and their friends to come together to socialise and relax in a quiet, friendly and inexpensive environment. We attract an unpredictable mix of regulars, occasional visitors and new members trying us out. Some attendees stay briefly, some come early, some come late while others stay for the whole evening. I am aiming to limit the numbers attending each Posse to around the 20 figure which will ensure we are as welcoming as possible.

    We have been meeting continuously since May 2005. Until April 2014, we met in Costa Old Compton Street which is no more. Until November 2016, we met in Costa Shaftesbury Avenue which is also no more. Both these venues had large basements ideal for our meetups. Now that these have gone, we are now meeting in Caffe Nero Haymarket as there are no suitable venues in Soho itself.

    We are currently meeting most Wednesdays with an occasional one missed out. We look forward to seeing you soon at the Posse.
