Friday After-Work-Drinks in the City at Carey Lane (Balls Brothers) Wine Bar

  • Jul 5, 2013 · 6:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Note 1) We highly recommend new members arrive as close to the start as possible, ideally by 8.00pm. At this time it's much easier to introduce new members to the group, before most members start arriving after 8pm.

Note 2) Please ensure you state 'Friends in London Meetup' at the bar to receive the Happy Hour until 9:00pm (scroll down to view details of the drinks included in the happy hour).

Note 3) This venue is near St Paul's Tube Station. From St Paul's Tube Station take Exit 1 (the 'Cheapside' exit). Then just walk straight ahead for a very short distance along Cheapside and take the first left into Foster Lane. Then walk a short distance along Foster Lane and turn right into Carey Lane where this Balls Brothers venue is located. We have reserved the entire private function room just for our group. John and myself (Martyn) will be at the 'function room' entrance to welcome new members. Our photos are on the right and we will be holding white attendance sheets to help you recognise us. In the unlikely event that we don't see you first, please ask members (or staff) in our reserved area for the organisers so we can welcome you to the group.

 

Event Description

Join us for Friday After-Work-Drinks at Carey Lane (Balls Brothers) Wine Bar near St Paul's Tube Station. This is a beautiful Balls Brother's venue and it's also very conveniently located in the heart of the City.

We've managed to arrange a special extended Happy Hour for our group on selected drinks from our arrival until 9:00pm. The Happy Hour deal covers the following drinks: Glasses of house red or white wine at £3.5050% off selected 'full bottles' of wine and Becks draught lager/beer at £3 a pint.

The venue is ideal for conversation as there is only very low background music. This wine bar is open until 11pm.

Please note that Balls Brothers has several wine bars in London, just in case there is any confusion.

We have reserved the beautiful and open-spaced private function room just for our group.

Photos of the venue are pictured below. You can also visit the official website of this wine bar by clicking here.

Myself (Martyn) and John will be there to greet members by the function room entrance.

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 John

    Grown up as I am, I'm pretty nervous about showing up to one of these on my own! Any tips apart from drink as quick as you can?!

    June 28, 2013

    • Martyn L.

      Hi Doll, most people are slightly nervous at their first meetup event. However, there'll be many new members in the same situation. Just try to come quite early in the night (ideally by 8pm at the latest). Then it's much easier for us organisers to introduce you to the group. You'll be fine :-) - cheers, Martyn

      1 · June 28, 2013

  • Amanda C.

    Hi, I'm new to the group. Will be there early and introduce myself :-)
