Friday After-Work-Drinks in the City at a new venue (Spectator Bar)

Note 1: Please ensure you read the following directions to this venue (and view the map link above). While this venue is only a maximum of 3 minutes walk from St Paul's Tube Station, the area can be confusing. To arrive here from St Paul's Tube Station you should take Exit 2 from the station. At the top of the exit steps you will see a busy road in front of you. Walk directly over that road and into a street named St Martin's Le Grand. Walk along St Martin's Le Grand for 1 - 2 minutes and take the second left into a street name Little Britain. Then walk along Little Britain street for a short distance and you'll see the Spectator Bar at the end of the street on the right hand side. The meetup will be downstairs.

Note 2) We highly recommend new members arrive as close to the start as possible. The event starts at 6:30 PM and we advise new members to ideally arrive before 7:30 PM. At this time it's much easier to introduce new members to the group, before most members start arriving after 8pm.

Event Description:

Join us for Friday After-Work Drinks at a new venue for our group - The Spectator Bar near St Paul's Tube Station. It's a great newly refurbished venue. We have booked the entire downstairs function room just for our group. We have control of the music volume so will make sure the levels are relatively low and suitable for conversation.

Myself (Martyn) and my brother Terry will be hosting the event. We'll be waiting to greet new members by the downstairs function room entrance (holding white attendance sheets and wearing meetup badges to help you recognise us).  In the unlikely event that I don't see you first, please ask members for me by name so I can welcome you to the group

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

Kind regards
Martyn and Terry

    I have just noticed how many people are on the waiting list

    January 31, 2014

  • Sophie D.

    January 31, 2014

  • Tasha

    Can I come? I am still on the waiting list

    January 30, 2014

    • Martyn L.

      Hi Tasha, the waiting list is automated and we do ask everyone to kindly observe this system as we are at full capacity for this event. When one person drops out from the main list by changing their RSVP to 'No', the next person on the waiting list will automatically be allocated a place. If you have been given a place you will automatically receive an email from Meetup notifying you of this. You can find out which place you are in by scrolling down the page on the right hand side to the 'waiting' area and checking your position from first to last (top to bottom). If you don't manage to come off the waiting list then there'll be plenty of other events to attend as we run them almost every week. Kind regards, Martyn

    Hi Martyn, whats the start time please? It says 6.30 for the meetup diary entry but 7.30 in the text. I'm bringing along a brand new member and so want to be earlyish but not to get there before you if 6.30pm is wrong lol!!!

    January 30, 2014

    • Martyn L.

      Hi Vivienne, yes the event starts at 6:30pm. I just state that new members should arrive by 7:30 pm. I'll be there from around 6:20 pm. There'll still be quite a few people arriving at the start . It should be a really good event at a great new venue. Kind regards, Martyn

    January 30, 2014

    • Martyn L.

      Hi Debbie, I've just written very specific directions to this venue at the start of the event description (just scroll to the top). 8:30pm is fine - we only recommend new members arrive earlier. Kind regards, Martyn

      January 30, 2014

  • Martyn L.

    We've just added very specific detailed directions to this venue. Ensure you read the directions and view the map link. This venue is close to St Paul's Tube Station but it can be a confusing area. Secondly, please can new members try to arrive as early as possible as this will make the night much easier for you with introductions etc (ideally by 7:30pm). Cheers, martyn

  • Sharon G.

    I'm so sorry, but something else has come up. I'll definitely be there at Arch 635 Bar next Friday!

  • debbie A.

    will u be playing music there to dance to? is it quite big this place, to late to join?

    January 28, 2014

    • Martyn L.

      Hi Debbie, we do often run events based around music (bands/dj etc). However, this event is more about members getting to know each other. It's more based on after-work-drinks conversation with low volume background music (even though we'll be there from 6:30pm until after 11pm). We do try our best to vary the events. Last week we organised a DJ event in West Kensington and next Friday we have a live bands event in Clapham. To answer your question about the size of the venue - the capacity is close to 200. At the moment there are 30 people on the waiting list. However, the drop-out rate is 10-30% - so you may still obtain a place if you RSVP as soon as possible. Kind regards, Martyn.

    January 20, 2014

      Hi Yvetta, we're going to cap this event at 180. Kind regards, Martyn
