These groups are mainly social gatherings for Club members although sometimes partners are also invited to join in. They include:
- Business Lunch
This bi-monthly activity is not only for business women, although we do extend a special invitation to our full-time working members to join us for lunch. Many nice upscale restaurants provide a business lunch menu for under €20 to give diners an economical way of trying out their restaurant, hopefully tempting them to make an evening booking.
Restaurants visited to date: Le Faubourg: Sofitel Hotel, Weinrot: Savoy Hotel, Quarry: Hotel Adlon, Duke: Ellington Hotel, Restaurant am Steinplatz: Hotel am Steinplatz, Qiu: Mandala Hotel, Relish: Westin Grand Hotel.
- Elegant Soirées
As the name of the group indicates, we offer members the opportunity to experience unique, elegant, up-market social gatherings. These will take place in the evening or at the weekend and members can bring along a partner or a friend. Our activities will not necessarily be organised on a regular basis. We’ll offer an event when we identify a suitable location and the opportunity to meet our chosen criteria arises.
Since the group started in 2015, we’ve organised an evening boat journey on the Havel, Italian fine dining with musical accompaniment, a jazz brunch to celebrate Valentine’s Day @ the Ellington Hotel and recently a make-up demonstration @ the Berlin Capital Club, accompanied by a 4-course flying buffet.
- Evening Group
This group was established to accommodate not only our working members but also those members who expressed an interest in having more evening events. The group meets every other month, sometimes in the home of member, and shares their experiences on issues facing expat women, meets for after-work cocktails or have a potluck dinner, watch a DVD together and do some business networking etc.
- Kool Kiez
Kool Kiez invites members to meet for lunch or an evening meal in one of Berlin’s many districts/localities. We plan to visit cafés and restaurants on a monthly basis, which will give you the chance to explore new areas or maybe visit some of your favourites along the way. Kool Kiez will give you the opportunity to meet in a small group and chat and also sample some good, reasonably priced food at the same time
Last but not least:
- the Forgotten Men
Since 2000, we, the partners of BIWC members, have had our own group. We meet once a month in Berlin restaurants and spend a jolly good time savouring, chatting, laughing and – of course! – debating how to light up the lives of our better halves. New Forgotteners are most welcome to join us.
