Saturday Night-Out in Soho (Grace Bar)

  • Sep 28, 2013 · 7:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Note 1) You must arrive before 9pm to gain free entry (at previous events here it was until 10pm).

Note 2) 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. Also note that the music is likely to be loud after 9pm.

Note 3) 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 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. I'll also be wearing a small yellow scarf to help you recognise me :-) 

EVENT DESCRIPTION:

Join us for a Saturday Night-Out in the heart of Central London at the beautiful Grace Bar in Soho (seconds away from Piccadilly Circus Tube Station). Grace Bar is a classy venue where guests have free access to a number of very distinctive areas, including a lounge, cocktail bar, dancefloor and restaurant.

The venue is conveniently located near Piccadilly Circus Tube Station in Central London. The meetup will start at 7.30pm and the venue closes at 1am. Please note that you must arrive before 9:00pm to gain free entry. After 9:00pm they charge between £5-£8 for entry.

Once again we've reserved an area downstairs in the very stylish white cocktail bar called 'The Milk Room' (pictured left and below). 

Please note that at previous events the management have kept the music at a lower level just for our group until around 9.00pm, but afterwards the volume is likely to be loud (as you'd expect from a 'party bar' located around the busy Piccadilly Circus/Soho area on a Saturday night).

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

kind regards

Martyn and Terry

    You understand wrongly. The waiting list is for the event you had signed up for. The golden rules are;- sign up early if you want to come and cancel as soon as you can if you find you cannot attend and that frees up someone on the waiting list to take your place.

    October 2, 2013

    • Monica

      Hi Jhon, thank you very much for the clarification and will do! see you next time

      October 8, 2013

  • Monica

    and again, when I saw I was in the waiting list I assumed that I could not get in anyway! well will try to check better next time. Thanks and I really do not get how this waiting list works. My understanding of a message I received few months ago was: if you are on the waiting list is because you did not attend to an event before therefore not particularly welcome. Am I right Martyn or I will still have the chance to attend to one of your event (provided that I will definitely come) ?

    • Vlad V.

      Nope, all it means is that an event is over subscribed. Think of it as a queue.

      2 · October 1, 2013

    • Holly

      Everyone is welcome! The events are very popular however and the rooms can only hold a certain number of people. Once that number has been reached you join the waiting list. Creating another event in the same venue is unfair to the hosts who take the time and trouble to organize these events for the benefit of the members. Every venue has a maxium amount of people they can hold for health & safety reasons. Once this is reached people will need to queue up and wait for someone to leave before they can be let in. This would be unfair to anyone already on the meetup list.By all means create a separate event but make sure it's in a different venue!

    Hi, I'm on the waiting list as well :/ how about those not getting in meeting anyway? :)

    3 · September 26, 2013

    • Andrew

      Don't wanna sound cocky but it's in a public space and for people turning up it's usually the 8020 rule ;)

      September 28, 2013

    • Monica

      agree, who will be on the waiting list will organise a parallel meet up!

      October 1, 2013

  • Monica

    Hi, same for me. Sorry I travel a lot and sometimes I could not come to the meet up and unfortunately forgot to let you know. I am on the waiting list, what should I do?

    September 26, 2013

    • Vlad V.

      You made it to the main list! :-)

      September 27, 2013

    • Monica

      next time will do, unfortunately this time I haven't checked anymore because I assumed I wasn't allowed to go.

      October 1, 2013

  • Monica

    as a matter of fact when I subscribed to the event there where not many people so I couldn't really get what the waiting list was for in my specific case. It's confusing! Lol

    Another great night at Grace! Loved the music - it was really fun to be able to dance. Thanks Martyn for organising!

    September 29, 2013

  • Dan

    Great as always.

    September 29, 2013

  • Diana

    The minus was, we couldn't recognise from the begining who are "meetupers". Luckily I wasn't alone and we had a great time.

    September 29, 2013

  • John

    Great night again

    September 29, 2013

  • Ana

    Sorry guys...I was on the waitlist and got my place confirmed at 5:30 today and by then I had already made alternative plans. So I am afraid unfortunately I am unable to make it :-(

    Its my first time guys wondering if there is any dress code to gain entry?

    September 28, 2013

    • Martyn L.

      The dress code is smart/casual - it's the same for nearly everyone London bar. cheers, martn

  • David P.

    Well done to the last 3 people who have canceled 3 hours before the event started. r airport runs last minute things? Think of all people on the waiting list since Tuesday!!

    1 · September 28, 2013

    • Akelia

      Wd u hv preferred if i didnt cancel and just didnt show up??

      September 28, 2013

  • Steven C.

    I went to Grace Bar about a year ago, it gets SERIOUSLY loud in there (well, at least it did) so definitely agree with getting there on time at 7.30 before it all kicks off!

    September 21, 2013

    • Martyn L.

      OK guys, let's keep it civil here :-).. In fairness to Chris I think he's trying to make the point that we do have people complaining when we run a rare event at a venue with loud music (not necessarily before the event, but at the event and afterwards in the feedback). We welcome constructive criticism. But when members complain about loud music when we clearly state there will be loud music, this kind of feedback is not so welcome. We clearly inform members what type of event this will be, so attendees should know what to expect.

      September 28, 2013

    • Vlad V.

      Ok, Martyn fair enough, I know what I am letting myself in for, so I won't comment or "moan" about this issue further.

      September 28, 2013

  • Ash

    Love this bar, love the music, really looking forward to it. I just don't understand the complainers. If you want to go somewhere quiet, no one is stopping you!

    For people on the Waiting List, please wait. When/if people on the Attending List remove themselves (because they realise they actually cannot attend), the spaces freed up are automatically re-allocated by Meetup to the people at the top of the Waiting List, and these people will receive an automatic e-mail from Meetup to let them know that they can now attend the event.

    For people on either the Attending or Waiting List, if you won't be able to attend the event then please change your RSVP to "No" so that others on the Waiting List may have the opportunity to come along. Thanks!
