What we're about

The next Posse is on Friday 31 March 2023 at Caffè Nero Haymarket.

The Gay Soho Coffee Posse usually meets on Wednesday evenings allowing you to socialise and relax with real gay people in the real world. 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.

We have been meeting continuously since May 2005. Starting off in the wonderful Costa Old Compton Street (RIP 2014), then Costa Shaftesbury Avenue (RIP 2016), then alternating between Caffè Nero Haymarket and Caffè Nero Oxo Tower (nice outdoor terrace in summer). And a brief stint on Zoom during the tyranny.

Soho Coffee Posse at Nero Haymarket (Friday 31 Mar 2023)

Caffe Nero (Haymarket)

The Posse relocates to our previous venue Caffè Nero Haymarket (in the vicinity of Soho) and moves to Friday when it stays open late. Come to socialise and relax with real gay people in the real world. This venue is quiet so conversation is easy.

The official part of the event starts at 7:15pm and continues until at least 9:15pm. You can come and leave anytime between these times. The venue is very busy before we start but loads of tables and chairs become available by 7:15pm. We may decamp to a nearby restaurant after 9:15pm.

It helps greatly that you RSVP for this event as early as possible. I'll then know you're coming and it encourages more people to attend. If you have RSVPed and you have a real picture, 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 Caffè Nero loyalty card or in the Caffè Nero App.

We sometimes take photos during the event which are published on this site. If you don't want to be in the photos, please tell me

Nearest Stations: Piccadilly Circus (Bakerloo and Piccadilly Lines), Leicester Square (Northern and Piccadilly Lines). Bus Stop R (Routes 6, 9, 139) is right outside.
There is level access to all parts of the venue.
