If there is a realistic alternative then I'm happy to go elsewhere too

The Metropolitan is very easy for most of us, being above Baker Street station, but it *is* a 'Spoons and people can get snotty about that

They usually have great female toilets with lots of space for costume changes and good lighting for make up.

I think it's because they often cater for the sort of ladies who love a good night out in a limousine :D

Is the problem with Coke a Sam Smith thing or just a Blue Posts one?

If the venue choice is still being discussed, can I suggest the Holborn Whippet in Bloomsbury?

https://holbornwhippet.com/

They serve decent beer and half-decent food. I can't abide the booze or non booze in Sam Smith's pubs but if it's the Blue Posts then it'll do ..

It looks very nice
Is it not a bit crowded in that location though?
Bearing in mind that that is why we have moved it from the Volunteer in the first place?

It will be very good to see you by the way

I understand. It would be a bit of a risk but are we going to have more than 10 or 15?

No, but it's in a more subdued part of town in general. Bottom part of Bloomsbury Square Gardens.

Side question: What are Sam Smith's pubs like? They seem like a positive step (no TVs, traditional, standards of quality), but they only serve SS beers, correct? What do people think of them? Seems to be a lot of them!

If you don't want beer they're appalling. Don't even think about the food.
