Subject: Central London commuters' singaround?
Just taking a straw poll...

...anybody fancy an early evening singaround in Central London?

I'm thinking that by starting at 7pm (or earlier? 6.30? 6.15?) we commuters could have a couple of hours and still be home at not-too-late-o'clock. Your input gratefully received but here's my initial thoughts:

I've identified a perfect venue: quiet upstairs bar, not too big, not too small. It's at the north end of Waterloo Bridge so ideal for those commuting into Waterloo and Charing Cross. Handy for tube lines to everywhere else. End of The Strand adjacent to Covent Garden/Aldwych.

We can have it for free on quiet nights (i.e. probably Mondays unless a paying customer wants to pay real money for it)

Bombardier and London Pride on tap. The Pride is excellent.

I could perhaps bring a "house" guitar.

I'm working in Somerset House for a few months, so it'd be - for me, at any rate - an occasional and probably short-term commitment. But I'd be more than happy to set up a trial one-off and take it from there.

Realistically, we might be looking at the new year, but I'm sort of hoping we could squeeze in Monday 30th November if there's enough interest.

Your constructive thoughts more than welcome. But, more than that, your strong commitment to support it would be excellent!

Either post to this thread or pm me.

Let's do it!
