Salsa classes are held each Wednesday and Slow Dating events each month.We have a limited number of “So Members Cards” for Bournemouth socialites and music lovers, this card is truly exclusive and offers fantastic members perks throughout the year. Long before I had this blog, and when I was also single, back in 2004 as a student at Bournemouth University, in England, I went to a “Speed Dating night” with my friends Lock in Lee, Mad Mike and Jody.At the time, reality events and TV shows were all the rage, I appeared in two mini versions of “Big Brother” around that era, this was something new.You get a group of girls and a group of guys together.Somebody or some company organises it, normally in a city.I never wrote about that Speed Dating adventure on this platform before but I did cover the Lock In (fake Big Brother).
Tonight’s event is held centrally in Warsaw, I remembered the 2004 one was in Bournemouth’s “Klute” Bar.The 15 guys are then assigned the seat of their first “date”.You walk into the room and sit in that seat opposite your first “date”. You get 4 minutes to chat about anything you want, then the organiser blows a whistle or announces, it’s time for the next “date”.Created just after the turn of the millennium, Bar So has been a cornerstone in Bournemouth’s bar and nightlife scene for over a decade.Located just a stone’s throw from Bournemouth’s infamous stunning beaches, it’s easy to see why Bar So is as popular with tourists as it is with the locals.
Normally the girls are seated at tables with a spare seat, ready for the gentleman.
