  • This location is shown only to members

Note 1) Please can everyone kindly observe the waiting list as we are at capacity for this event. 

Note 2) We highly recommend new members arrive as close to the start as possible, ideally before 8.00pm (the events starts at 6:30pm). At this time it's much easier to introduce new members to the group, before most members start arriving after 8pm

Note 3) 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 4) This venue is near St Paul's Tube Station. From St Paul's Tube Station take Exit 1 (the 'Cheapside' exit). Please scroll down for the Google image map to this location. The event hosts (John, Raf and Cathy) will be in the function room waiting to greet new members (this is a large separate room on the right hand side of the bar). In the unlikely event that we don't see you first, please ask members/staff for the event hosts so you can be introduced to the group.

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

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

We've managed to arrange a special extended Happy Hour just 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 £3.50. 50% off selected 'full bottles' of wine and Becks draught lager/beer at £3 a pint.

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. The event hosts will be waiting to greet new members by the function room entrance (holding white attendance sheets). 

Note that this event will be hosted by John, Raf and Cathy (The usual organisers, Martyn and Terry, are away on holiday in Wales).

kind regards
John, Raf and Cathy

      Hi Jen, thats fine as this meetup is just after-work-drinks (even though many members stay until 11.00). It's a great venue so a good night should be had all round, even if it's just a brief stay. Kind regards, Martyn

    Hi. How does the waiting list work? Looks incredibly over-subscribed, so I'm wondering if there's any chance in hell of me being able to come along. Thanks.

      Hi, when 1 person drops out, the next person on the waiting list goes up and so on. These are popular events and it is a good idea to sign up early. We have more events coming up soon, so keep a look out. John, Event Host.

    Just to respond to a couple of comments from new members who are slightly apprehensive/nervous about attending their first meetup event. At each event there are around 50% regulars and 50% new members. Also most people attend by themselves. Nearly everyone is (at the very least) slightly nervous at their first meetup event (whether that's on this group or another). Just try to arrive as close to the 6:30pm start as possible if you're a new member. At that time it'll be easier before the night becomes very busy. I'm away in Wales, but the hosts John, Raf and Cathy will make you more than welcome. You'll be fine :-)

    Hi Martyn sorry I can't make Friday's drinks. Hope the evening goes well!

    February 20, 2014

  • Helen S.

    Great. Looking forward to attending.

    February 20, 2014

  • Elizabeth

    Hi, you have 6:30 pm as the starting time for the meeting, but in another comment you advice to arrive at 8:00 pm. Is the meeting starting at 8:00 pm now.

    February 20, 2014

    • Martyn L.

      Hi Elizabeth, the event starts at 6:30pm. We just advise new members to arrive by 8pm (that's anytime between 6:30pm and 8:00pm). Then it's much easier to introduce new members as the majority of existing members arrive just after 8:00pm. Kind Regards, Martyn

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
