We have taken away any and all issues surrounding socializing and meeting new people in Abu Dhabi. 1. Meeting new people in groups can be intimidating. The organizers of the Expats Meetup understand this and so welcome you when you arrive in our reserved area. We then proceed to introduce you to a few like minded people so that you can chat and settle down. 2. Our socials are very casual and laid-back affairs. We have no registration table, queues, guest lists or ceremony. All you do is walk in like you are meeting old friends and just say hello! 3. There is a very good reason why our socials have small groups of between 10 and 30 people. That is because small groups are better for socializing and everyone can actually meet everyone else through the course of the evening. Everyone just enjoys themselves more! 4. No one is alone in our socials. No starring into glasses and watching others chatting. Our organizers will help you make connections. Just reach out to them. Organizers will be there to help you and introduce you to the other members. 5. We, almost always, tend to have a very good gender, age and cultural balance. No one group dominates, there are no cliques and everyone is very open to make new friends. You have no absolutely no excuse! There is no need to be shy or worried about meeting new people. Come out and join us. We will help you meet people and make new friends! ---------------MEMBER VIDEOS------------------------

What we're about

Please be aware that we require a clear face photo (without sun glasses and goggles for men) for all members and also full and proper answers to all our questions in correct English. If you do not have a clear photo or answer the questions properly we will not approve you. Thank you for your understanding. We look forward to meeting you at one of our meetups soon!


Abu Dhabi can be a wonderful city for the globally aware expatriate. You may have however outgrown frenetic clubbing evenings with teeny boppers and loud music and are yet not ready for long quiet evenings alone at home. You may be looking to meet with compatible, well travelled people with similar interests but diverse experiences, with the possibility of forging friendships based on deeper connections.

We are a group of over 1500 like-minded people, mainly single but we also have couples and those under 35 years of age, who prefer to socialise in relatively quiet locations where people can establish networks and friendships through interesting conversations and eloquent discussions. We also like to party and dance on occasion and so our meetups are diverse.

This is an Abu Dhabi group of 'The Expats Club' which is a global network of online socialising and networking groups. The Expats Club operates in 20 cities around the world, with over 50,000 members, through a variety of platforms including, Facebook and our own platform at ( and at

We tend to have a number of groups in every city to meet the needs of many niches in the community. A number of times we combine group events so that everyone can meet each other. I hope you enjoy your membership of our groups. Please feel free to write to me at or text/whatsapp/call me on +971552829430 or +447715705005 with any comments, complaints, thoughts or suggestions. I look forward to meeting you at one of our events soon.

Please be aware that most people come to meetups and events alone. We make it our business to welcome you at the door, introduce you to others in the group and ensure that you are comfortable quickly. We are also at hand to assist if you have any issues or would like to be introduced to anyone specifically. We only ask that you are well behaved in our online and offline interactions with other members.

We also do group holidays a few times a year, when we invite members from all our groups around the world to join us at one holiday destination. I very much hope you will join in one of those trips as you meet people from around the world (including locals who are part of our local groups) and vastly improve your enjoyment of the holiday. It is an unsurpassed experience and always a grand party!

My thanks and best regards

Dan Raj (Founder)
