This location is shown only to members
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 relatively early will almost always have a much more enjoyable evening as then it's much easier to introduce you to the group.
Note 2) I'll be jointly hosting the event and greeting new members (my name is Martyn for those of you who don't know me). I'll be wearing a small yellow scarf and holding an attendance sheet so you can recognise 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 very large reserved area by the dance-floor for me by name so I can welcome you to the group.We usually have almost the entire venue to ourselves until around 11pm (it's open until 3am). My photo is on the right.
Note 3) The venue has free entry before 10pm.
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 on selected drinks starting from our arrival at 8pm until Midnight (during which you'll find many offers on drinks, e.g. half-price on bottles of lager/beer and spirits etc). The music volume is relatively low for the first two hours of the meetup (making conversation much easier than in many louder nightclubs). Not until after 10pm does the volume significantly increase when the live DJ begins.
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 (we usually have the entire venue to ourselves until around 11pm). 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.
The live DJ plays 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).
