Because no one should drink alone.
Every night since we closed the doors on Little Portland St, we have opened the bar online and shared drinks and music with our friends and family. When it’s open and the drinks are flowing, The Social is about a few things – conversation (whether on stage or between punters) and music being two of the most important. We’ve tried to make this site as much about the former as possible, while over on Twitter and Facebook, we’ve tried our damnedest to keep the spirit alive with 6pm drinks and playlists from our virtual landlords and ladies.
Each night at 1800 on we will host afterwork drinks until we can drink together again in real life.
