    We have exclusive hire of the whole venue at THE STERLING BAR - BASE OF THE GHERKIN! (Nearest Tube Liverpool Street/Bank/Aldgate)

    The Sterling 'This stylish city bar sits at the base of The Gherkin, one of London’s most famous and iconic buildings.  There’s a great range of wine and drink to complement good conversation. The glass walled, main bar offers plenty of space and great views out onto the concourse and the impressive architecture and unique design make The Sterling a trendy spot in the centre of the City.

    Yes we have the Sterling...! The City Boys & Girls will not be around at the weekend, (hopefully some of them will be off duty & joining us!), so we have the GHERKIN BAR all to ourselves...& we will have some tables outside which we can use if we have some nice weather..

    Dress code will be Smart Casual/Dressed up but not formal.


    Entry 6.30pm -9.30pm 

    FEMALE FRIENDLY! We will have a 'ladies table' designated from 6.30pm for ladies who wish to come on their own & meet 'wing women/gal pals' for the night. (Please arrive early if you wish to use the ladies table). Maybe dare I even chance to say an 'outdoor' ladies table for the first time in history... whoohoo! Be part of it ladies!

    Chatting & Mingling:[masked]pm

    Music & Dancing (Music & DJ/Disco): 8.30pm until 12pm/close

    This is an AMAZING VENUE & we have our own exclusive venue hire, I have organised a fabulous party with our resident DJ Grant.... so we can have some great tunes selected & mixed  and we will be able to take member requests, so we can listen to the music we like! 

    As usual we will start the event nice and quietly for mingling/convos and louder volume music later on for dancing

    We will be clearing the dancefloor area for dancing probably around 8.30pm ish but if you still want to continue nattering with your new mates or a certain person, or need a rest from dancing, you can use the upstairs bar or al fresco using the very nice outside tables. 

    At our last event at the Gherkin, we had TBA genuine attendees. We are therefore anticipating TBA members for this event

    Food is not available at this venue- I will of course be bringing FREE snacks & peanuts to keep you going or you can pop out at any time if you need to eat during the night (as long as you come back!)

    We have fab hosts joining myself on the night and they will be there to meet and greet you, introduce you to others, help you to mingle and get you in the  mood, and support you throughout the night.

    We will be joining up with a few people from other 'selected' meetup groups for the event.  More on that later!

    • Please arrive EARLY i.e. 6.30pm for better intros mingling & conversations, especially if you are a new member. Its very hard for me to do intros later on in the night when people are well into their convos and a bit tipsy and nigh on impossible when it is packed, the music is loud and the event is in full swing!

    • There will be feature loud music later on in the night. If you prefer an event without music where you can have lots of intimate conversations, please join us at one of our quieter meet ups!
