What we're about


We are a group of Spanish speakers, from native speakers to beginners alike, who get together to chat en español. We are a member-driven group with members pitching in to organize, greet new members and socialize. Our regular events are:

Mid-Week MEGA MEETUP: Every third Wednesday of the month you can expect a regular meetup at Crystal Jade (unless otherwise stated in the event calendar) in downtown SF. This meetup is larger and may have a waiting list at times. These meetups are lively with lots of people meeting and chatting in Spanish while sipping drinks and having some appetizers.

LA HORA FELIZ: This is a popular bi-monthly meetup usually on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of the month at Baobab Cafe in the Mission. People come to celebrate the end of the work week and mingle in Spanish in an upbeat, fun, atmosphere. Members often hang around until late. Feeling hungry after all the chatting, propose a dinner plan with your fellow hablantes!

Mid-Week Spanish Meetup: Come join this group for a mid-week lunch where you can practice your Spanish. Meeting once month, this sub-group is a fun way to practice Spanish during your lunch hour.

We also host other events at non-regular intervals. If you are a member you will be notified of these special events:

Hiking en español, East Bay Spanish Happy Hour, Spanish Book Clubs, Concerts, Sporting Events, Saturday Café en español.

Spanish Language Workouts: These workshops are designed with the learner in mind interested in improving their speaking. Each workshop is lead by a professional teacher who guides attendees in discussing fun and diverse topics in Spanish. Ideal for mid beginner to intermediate levels. Native speakers always welcome for free! First workshop free for Meetup members (later workshops at a discount for members). You can find these events on the calendar (from time to time) and here: http://abclanguagesf.com/spanish-workouts

General info:

GROUP MINGLING: Please be open to members entering the meeting. This means if you are already mingling and see a new member, please greet him or her and invite them into your chatting circle. If you are the person arriving, remember that most everyone else, like you, also arrived alone. If it is your first time coming, I highly recommend arriving on time and getting to know people in a smaller setting. If you arrive later it may appear more intimidating, but trust me super easy if you just walk up to anyone, you will see how friendly our members are.

WHAT SPANISH LEVEL TO EXPECT: Native speakers of Spanish are common in the group as well as intermediate to advanced speakers. Beginners are also welcome and people are super friendly in helping out by speaking slowly and being patient. If you are total beginner, consider taking a class through ABC Languages: https://www.abclanguagesf.com/spanish.html

WHAT ATMOSPHERE TO EXPECT: Lively, social, fun!

PREFER A DIFFERENT STYLE OF MEETUP, location or meeting time? Just let the organizers know and we can make you an Event Organizer and you may put on meetups where and when you like.

Dolores Park, near Cumberland and Dolores.

NOTE TO NEWCOMERS: Look for the guy with a guitar in a black fabric case! The group starts small (Me), and eventually grows to 6+ or so by 3PM, and 10+ by 4pm, so... IMPORTANT note, if you are new to the group, please arrive around 30m to 45m late!

The group is informal and relaxed (And that's the way we want it), so most people tend to arrive 30-45m late, and sometimes even 2 hours late. At 2pm sharp, it's usually only me, so look for only one me and my guitar at that time...

Also, since weather in SF is unpredictable, bring layers!



Hola, ahora vamos a tener un formato hibrido, una semana es en el parque (Sabados), y la siguiente en la parte de afuera del bar (Viernes). El Sabado es de guitarras, canciones en Español y cervezas!

Para el parque, traigan sus instrumentos favoritos (No hay problema si están aprendiendo), sus canciones favoritas en Español, cervezas/vino/alguna bebida favorita, y a ver que sale. También traiganse algo para sentarse en el pasto, algo de comer para ustedes mismos, algo sencillo para compartir (Que no se eche a perder sin refrigeración) y ganas de divertirse!

La Hora Feliz, edicion Viernes en el Little Baobab!

Little Baobab SF

La Hora Feliz, edición el bar Little Baobab!

NOTE TO NEWCOMERS: Please arrive 30m late if you're new to the group. Most of us (Including me) arrive from work and sometimes after dinner, so there's no expectation we'll be right on time. The owner of the bar and waitresses know our group, so they can point you at the person(s) already there. It is a small venue, very difficult to get lost there.

We plan to be in the outside area ("Parklets"), so dress in layers.

The bar may ask proof of vaccination and/or mask in order to serve you, please follow their instructions.
Hola, ahora vamos a tener un formato hibrido, algunos fines de semana en el parque (Sabados), y otros en la parte de afuera del bar (Viernes). Viernes es en el Little Baobab como en los "viejos tiempos"! :-)
Hi, now we're going to a hybrid format, some weekends we go to the park (Saturdays) and some others we go to the outside area of the bar (Fridays). Friday is at Little Baobab like the "old days"! :-)
