We are based at The Spectator Bar, a modern, spacious and well-run pub, located in between St Paul's, Barbican and Moorgate stations, and not far from City Thameslink.
We meet every Sunday evening from 18.30 and the event usually comes to a close around 22.30 depending on numbers.
Drinks and Food?
Pints are all £4 (reasonable for the City), bottles from £3.50 and glasses of wine from £3.
We have a special Babble Nibbles menu with sharing platters and individual snacks such as chicken goujons and potato wedges.
How does it work?
Babble is a language market where everyone has something to contribute. Whatever language you want to practise (unless it's incredibly obscure) will be spoken by a native on a typical Sunday evening. As hosts Marc and Mark look to pair people up with a common language interest and the rest is down to you.
Our ambition is that Babble will become the go-to place on a Sunday night, a new London tradition to match not talking on the tube, or getting drunk and vomiting in the street. We know we create a good atmosphere and that people find us helpful, but we want more than that! We want to create a party such that people look forward to Sunday nights, and stay till closing with the aim of extracting the maximum possible joy from their weekend!
If we’re going to achieve this, we’ll need your help. We need you to engage with us, we need you to arrive with an open mind and a happy smile (which you already do), we need you to invite your friends along and talk about us when you can, we need you to be active on here and our other social media platforms (@BabbleLondon on Twitter, www.facebook.com/babblelanguages) with ratings, comments, conversations, suggestions! And in return for all of the above, you get a London home. You get a place where you feel welcome every week, where you meet other people who want the same things as you do, where you make friends in a sometimes intimidating city. We’re not exclusive, we don’t need you to be a certain age, nationality or gender, we welcome all-comers and our only requirement is that you do the same.
We look forward to meeting you.
