Starbucks Social at Xujiahui

Free Expat Coffee Shop Social Shanghai

Cost: Pay for what you order

Please register here

Make new friends in a relaxed environment. Pictures of where we sit and important info below so be sure to read all of this to avoid any problems finding us. No free coffee, just a free event

Some people call us an “English corner” because when I first started the group over 3 years ago, a lady came who asked me if she could promote it and she called it an English corner but I prefer the term “social group.” Anyway, it doesn’t really matter but if you ask people, they might say we’re an English corner instead of meetup but we’re actually the same group.
