Social activities lie at the heart of WICE's mission, serving as the lively bridge that connects and strengthens ties between the Anglophone and Francophone communities in Paris.

Twice a month, typically on Thursdays, WICE crafts social events that offer  opportunities to mingle and create lasting friendships.

  • Mid-day Lunches: Usually held on the 1st Thursday of the month, our lunches are relaxed, pay-for-your-own gatherings in the historic Latin Quarter. Break bread with fellow members and enjoy the flavors of Parisian cuisine.

  • Evening Apéros: Held on the 3rd Thursday of the month, the apéros cost 10€ (or free for active volunteers and new members) and include selections of wine, non-alcoholic beverages, cheeses, and charcuterie to delight the palate.

Through these gatherings, WICE cultivates a sense of community and camaraderie that transcends cultural boundaries. Join us for any or all of these events and become part of a tradition that celebrates the joy of connection and the spirit of Paris.

You can be kept abreast of our social activities by subscribing to our newsletter, WICE Direct, following our FaceBook page, or by simply keeping an eye on this page.

    Join fellow WICE members for coffee on Tuesday mornings. And, if the weather permits, perhaps a walk through the Luxembourg Gardens afterwards.

    Members meet at Brasserie le Bullier, named after the famous ball located opposite the "Port Royal" station, to which the whole of Paris once flocked.

    Offering a beautiful interior and exterior space, where everyone's privacy is preserved, Le Bullier gives each guest the feeling of the warmth of a Parisian salon and the decor of the Brasseries of yesteryear.

    WICE member Brise Rickey, who has lived in the neighborhood a few years, hosts the Tuesday morning coffees twice a month. It's a great opportunity to hang out with fellow WICE members, make new friends, and enjoy those special experiences unique to Paris.

    Open to all WICE members, but registration is required.

    Brasserie le Bullier is located at 22 Av. de l'Observatoire, 75014. It can be reached by RER B (Port Royal), metro lines 4 and 6 (Raspail), and busses 38, 82, 91.

    WICE men . . . join us for a men's lunch!

    This is nothing mysterious, it's just a chance for guys to hang out with other guys for a few hours and discover common interests and such over good food and beverages.

    Lunch will be at L'Académie de la Bière, just south of the Luxembourg Gardens.  As the name implies, L'Académie de la Bière specializes in beer. Specifically, Belgian & German beers (of which there are dozens). They also have good charcuterie,  mussels & Belgian frites, and more.

    You pay for what you eat and drink, no extra fees, but registration is required.

    This is a public restaurant, and any WICE member can come. But WICE is only reserving 20 seats together. If you don't register, there is no guarantee that you'll be sitting with the group.

    Served by RER B (Port Royal), line 6 (Raspail), line 4 (Vavin), and busses 21, 38, 82, 83, and 91.

    As WICE’s year winds to an end and we prepare to take off for the summer, we take this opportunity to have a final gathering with those we know and those we’ve met. This early-summer apéro is a toast to the memories we've created and the friendships we've fostered throughout the year. On this last day before the summer solstice, let's celebrate the year with food, beverages, and fellowship. The board of directors eagerly anticipates your company and feedback, which are the keystones of our continuous evolution. This isn't just a farewell, but a celebration of the long journey we've shared over the past two years in revitalizing WICE.

    Note 1: Registration required. You can pay either online or at the door, although online payments are preferred. If you are having trouble registering, please contact wice@wice-paris.org

    Registration opens on Friday,  24 May 2024.

    Le Molière is close to metro line 10 (Mabillon stop), metro line 4 (Odéon stop), and busses 80, 82.

    10€ for regular members and guests; free for new members and active volunteers.

    See you there!
