It's my Party and i'll SMILE if I want to!

I'm having a birthday drinks party in my local fav venue in Shoreditch. If you know me, want to come with somebody who knows me or even chatted to me just the once then stick your name down and i'll put you on the guest list.

It's no special number of birthday … just an excuse for a few drinks with friendly people, plus.

I have a small area reserved with sofas just as you enter the door on the right but the whole venue is at our disposal.

It will kick off at 6pm after work and is free entry up until 11pm (If any queues just go to the front and say you're on Phil's guest list - after 11pm you may have to pay a reduced fee, £5 max). It won't close until 3am.
Live music downstairs, DJs and dancing after 11pm
There's a Vietnamese street food restaurant inside on the left….
…and a cocktail bar called Nola upstairs on the left.

The Bedroom Bar has the famous 'Comedy Café' upstairs on the right. There will probably be stand-up comedy on the night and you can pay to enter (usually £12'ish on the door to be sure you get in) or, if you're really lucky, the owner has told me that my guests can have any spare seats if the venue isn't full. I'll find out at 7.45pm if any are available. It will go on until about 10.30 and then you can rejoin our group downstairs.

Here's a few links so you can see what the venue holds:

    Sorry Phil - I'm not going to make tomorrow as not feeling great, but I think the plus 1 will still come. My plus one is Olga and she knows Julie G. I'm sure you will have met her as she is really bubbly and a lovely person. I'm really sorry I'm not going to make it as I really wanted to celebrate with you and try out the Bedroom Bar. Hopefully I'll see you soon. Have a great birthday.

      Hi Vanessa, that's a big shame. I hope you feel better very soon.. Olga's name is now on the list so queue jumping is possible if their is one (depending on arrival time!). See you soon.
