Ok, so maybe our summer is missing the Spanish guaranteed sunshine or the Portuguese surfers hangouts, or the deep blue Caribbean water colours but we certainly know how to make the most of the little sunshine we get, and one things is beyond doubt: no one does beer gardens better than Londoners!
Please join us for a for a summer party at the magic garden, featured by Evening Standard as one of the most beautiful London beer gardens. We will meet up at 6:30, have some drinks and/or food and from 8pm enjoy reggae vibes with Mc Soom T and Post Orgasmic Sunshine Band.
If you are travelling from work, please feel free to arrive a bit later, but please let us know so that we keep the seat for you. (Also after 8pm there is an entry fee of £7).
Fee: Admin fee of £3.5 is charged to cover the costs and expenses of running the group.

The eternal youth-spot is one of the livelier venues south of the river. While the food is good, the bands are better and the boutique beer garden is open until midnight, so no need to queue for Infernos. Fairy lights, plump sofas and a giant teepee are all there to keep the fun under one roof.
Signature tipple Twisted apple martini, £7.50
Signature dish Steak and ale pie served with creamed mash and onion gravy, £8
