Please check out our calendar for other great events.

If you are looking at an empty diary and wondering what activities in Manchester will lead you to meeting new people. You have come to the right place. Our Mingle parties are legendary.


Because it is THE ultimate event for anyone wishing to meet new people in Manchester and have great fun in the process. No Forced Conversations.  No Expectations. Just a party for professionals who want to let their hair down and expand their Social Circle at the same time. 

Regardless of whether you are one of our Elite 5 members, or are just coming along to find out more, we guarantee you a fantastic night of mingling in one of Manchester’s hottest venues. You will be swapping numbers with fabulous new friends before the night is out.

Don’t want to walk into a room alone? We will happily come and meet you at the station or outside.

Frightened of attempting to talk to someone? Our professional hosts will be working the room to help you relax, answer any questions and are useful target practice for successful small talk.    As our hosts know all our members, they will introduce you to people with similar interests so you will soon be chatting and laughing until the early hours.



Imagine sipping a Cocktail with new friends as you watch the sun disappear behind Manchester’s skyline.

The Portland Bar and Grill is described as Manchester’s ‘finest and friendliest’ venues with 4* reviews on Facebook for its classic cocktails, craft beers and great atmosphere.  Social Circle has the exclusive use of its skyline bar with stunning views of the city centre.  Meaning you can party hard (or not!) in a stunning and sought-after venue.  Best of all, this venue is nestled right in the City Centre, and a stone’s throw from Rail, Bus and Metrolink stations meaning it is safe and easy to get home again.

What our members say:

I love the mingle parties. Everyone is so friendly and unpretentious so I found my nerves soon disappeared.  Steve and the hosts make sure everyone is well looked after, so I feel completely safe and at-ease. Emily

So what about the cost?

Don't worry, we've taken care of that for you, too. This is a night where we just want to get together and enjoy a great evening. So this event is on us. The only thing you'll need to take care of are the costs of the night. Other than that, just  dress up and start mingling.
