Friday After-Work-Drinks in the City at Spectator Bar

NOTE 1) 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.

NOTE 2) 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. We'll be waiting to greet new members by the downstairs function room entrance. 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, wearing a Meetup badge and my photo is on the right. 

Join us for Friday After-Work-Drinks at 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. This venue is ideal for conversation as there will only be low background music all night. 

While this venue is officially a bar, it's more of a pub-style bar (this is certainly reflected in the reasonable price of drinks compared to many city venues). The venue closes at 11:30 PM.

Exact written Directions (also see Google Map link above):

Please ensure you read the directions below 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.

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

      Hi Shazan/Kim - I'm only now reading your post as I've been away. Honestly, most new members are slightly nervous at the least when coming to their first event. At every event there are at least a third who are new members - so there'll be many people in the same situation. Just try to arrive as close to the start as possible as then it'll be much easier for you before everyone starts arriving. You'll be fine :-)

    Sorry, I did not think I would get through the waiting list and made other plans for today

    March 28, 2014

  • Martyn L.

    As the waiting list has dropped off I've slightly increased the numbers for this event to accommodate the small number of people now on the waiting list. I couldn't do this earlier as there was just too many people on the waiting list.
