Natural History Museum After Hours

Food and drink

Bar open from 18.00 until 22.00

Grab a tasty meatball parmigiana ciabatta, courgette, feta and mint fritters on flat bread, salads and more from our Central Hall menu. Then enjoy a selection of good quality wines, beers and ciders from the bar.

The food is really good, but not cheap, you won't get much for under a tenner so if you don't want to spend that, bring a sandwich.

Please note that drinks and food cannot be taken into the exhibitions and the Dinosaur gallery.

More info at the NHM After Hours page.


We will meet at the foot of the mains stairs in the Central Hall (main lobby), hopefully at a table, between 6pm and 6.30pm.

We will meet again in the Central Hall at [masked]pm to collect later arrivals and sometimes people just want to stay sitting, drinking, eating, listening to the live music and chatting for the rest of the evening. The food is excellent but not cheap, but there's nothing to stop you bringing a sandwich in.

If there's no Meetup sign/people in the central Hall after 7.30pm, we will meet back at the Central Hall at 9.30pm for a final gathering together.

As usual, hosts' numbers will be emailed to attendees the day before the event.

    Sadly I'll have to miss this time as a flat has come up which I must seize every opportunity to view (anyone else falling into learned helplessness from the current property market?!). Pity as I love the NHM. Oh well... Next time see you there
