Come and join us for a drink and a chat
at Smollensky's on the Strand
Our new venue tonight is Smollensky's Bar and Grill on the Strand.
We'll be meeting there for casual drinks after work from 6-30pm onwards. They serve food, so you'll be able to get something to eat. If you're new to London or just here for a vacation or a short visit, you're particularly welcome to join us.
See you there.
