Saturday Night at Pigalle Club in Piccadilly Circus (Happy Hour until 10pm)

Note 1) We highly recommend new members arrive as close to the start as possible, ideally by 8.15pm (We'll be there to welcome members when the venue opens at 7.45pm). Afterwards, most members start arriving. New members who arrive early will almost always have a much more enjoyable evening. It can often be slightly overwhelming for new members who arrive at any popular meetup event when a venue is very busy later in the night.

Note 2) I'll be hosting the event and greeting new members (my name is Martyn for those of you who don't know me). My brother Terry will also be assisting me with hosting the event. In the unlikely event that I don't see you first, please ask members in our reserved area by the dance-floor for me by name so I can welcome you to the group. I'll be holding a white attendance sheet and my photo is on the right.

Note 3) The venue has free entry before 10pm.

Event Description

Join us for a Saturday Night-Out at the Pigalle Club in the heart of Piccadilly Circus. We often organise events at some great modern bars/clubs, but it's also great to find the more historical and quirky venues like The Pigalle. This spacious venue has a long history (the Beatles even performed here in 1963) and its unique design has remained the same. It's variously described as having the appearance of an old-style theatre venue or a 1940's Jazz Cafe.

We've managed to arrange an extended happy hour starting from our arrival at 8pm until 10pm (during which you'll find many offers on drinks, e.g. half-price on bottles of lager/beer and spirits etc). Also, the music here is much more moderate than many loud bars/clubs in central London (although the volume does increase, but not until after 10pm).

The Pigalle is very conveniently located - almost directly next to the main 'Piccadilly' road exit at Piccadilly Circus Tube Station (Take Exit 3 marked South-Side Piccadilly out of the tube station).

We've reserved a very spacious area just for our group with several open booths by the dance-floor at the back of the venue . There's also a large dancefloor for those who want to party until 3am. The club has free entry before 10pm. As the event starts at 8pm, you'll have plenty of time to arrive before they start charging. However, if you arrive after 10pm then they often charge around £10 for entry.

For those who want to party until late, the venue is open until 3am and they play commercial/chart music.

In the meantime, if you have any queries then please do not hesitate to contact us by email through this website (click on my name, Martyn, and just choose the option to send an email).

kind regards

Martyn and Terry

    Hi guys, I just uploaded photos from last night. Thanks Martyn, Terry and all of You for letting me practice nightclub photography. By the way, photos are NOT for commercial use, just for meetup group and my own photography experience.

    Hope everyone had a great night,
    Maro

    Great night! Lost my watch though- anyone find it? If so, let Martyn know... Thanks!

      Hi Anne, I'll text David the manager for you. To be honest he does contact me when something is found. But it can take a few days and I'm not sure if the club is open as it's easter sunday. I'm sure it will turn-up as it's very rare that anything has been taken at our events (in 95% of similar cases items are found). Glad you had a a good night otherwise. Let you know when I hear

    Hi, I am new and will try to join u at the earliest. There are 240 attendees! Are your all parties that huge?

    March 29, 2013

    • Martyn Lloyd

      Hi Navdeep, welcome to Friends in London. We do run many large events, but for many events we cap the numbers so they are much smaller. It's good to have a balance between some large and some smaller events. The numbers are higher for this event as we almost have the whole venue to ourselves until around 10.30pm when people from outside the meetup group start coming in to the venue.

      March 30, 2013

      Regardless of the size , these events are usually fun

    Hi Martyn,
    Do you need a FREE photographer for your event?

    I am starting out with nightclub photography and need to build up my portfolio.

    1 · March 30, 2013

    • Martyn Lloyd

      Hi Maro, thank you for the kind offer. I've just sent you an email as we do have guidelines on the photos that can be taken and I'll need to discuss them with you before the event. Many thanks, Martyn
