New Look!

Owl-blue

We’re EXTREMELY EXCITED to reveal that our old mate and super talented artist Pete Fowler has created a brand new design for the front of 5 Little Portland St!!

Almost exactly 2 years since his current design went up to mark our 15th anniversary, Pete has reimagined our beloved upstairs bar and stuck it across the front of the building. 

The new design goes up on Friday and we’ll be around celebrating its genius on Friday night with 2 for 1 drinks until 8pm. Then heading down to the basement for the Sugarmen, Tuska and Britain + Heavenly Jukebox DJs

Guardian Live – An evening with the Long Read

2000

Wednesday 17th feb

Just over a year ago the Guardian embarked on a new venture, launching the Long Read – a slot reserved for storytelling unbound by the usual constraints of daily journalism. A single piece might be the result of months of work, intensive reporting and forensic editing of a kind usually associated with high-end magazines or book publishing. Each piece would go as deep into a subject as the writer was able to dive. Since then, the Long Read has established itself as the UK’s home of longform journalism, publishing nearly 200 stories.

Join Long Read editor Jonathan Shainin for an evening of readings and conversation about the art of longform journalism. We will be joined by two regular contributors: Sam Knight, who has written about everything from government privatisation to panda sex, and Wendell Steavenson, who has reported from Georgia, Iraq and Egypt for the New Yorker, as well as profiling Britain’s cleverest man for the Long Read.

Calderdale Flood Relief Fund Show

Wednesday 13th Feb

Live:

SMOKE FAIRIES

THE RAILS

HAYLEY ROSS

+ guests

Deep Hum special raising money for those effected by the flooding in the Calder Valley

We’re putting on this Calderdale Flood Fundraiser next week at The Social. It’s only £5 to get in and Smoke Fairies will be playing live with Hayley Ross and the Heavenly Jukebox DJs.

This time last year we were up in Hebden Bridge for the start of Heavenly’s 25th celebrations and were supposed to be up there again later this month for a Caught By The River event. It’s an amazing place and we met some really wonderful people whilst we were there and got to hang out at what is probably the UK’s best venue, Hebden Bridge Trades.

The scenes of damage over Christmas were pretty shocking. It’s going to take a long time for the town and surrounding area to recover – lots of people have lost their homes and businesses.
Hope you can make it down.

There’s a link to their fundraising page below or grab and ticket and head along
