London O2 September meet up?

Postby Paul Zagreb » Mon Sep 02, 2013 2:49 pm

At the last O2 concert a few of us met up at the Pilot Pub http://www.pilotgreenwich.co.uk/find-us. It is only 5-10 minutes walk away from the O2 and is a decent place with a garden (assuming good weather) and food. Not sure of Sunday opening hours these days in the UK (I presume pubs stay open all afternoon) but I certainly think it is a better option than all the overpriced and crowded places right by the O2 itself. Opening a new thread on this but not really able to organise anything other than to say I hope to be there from about 430pm! Paul

Sounds good, generally. But on their web site they mention: 'Opening Hours: Closed for refurbishment' ...

I did not spot that ... then it's probably not a good idea! :oops:

Anyone got any other places we could meet?

For the June O2 concert, a lot of us met at the O2. It's got loads of places inside. There's a Starbucks ( Or Costa), just inside. And bars and restaurants in there too.

Hope to see a few friends before concert.
Just tried to ring the pub and there was no answer, might send them email to find out when they open again as it is a nice place to meet up.
Will let you know if I get response.

That looks good to me & the website says it's just outside the O2 arena, so good location too. Thank you for the suggestion, Hartmut.

On the other hand, they seem to like advance bookings - and are apparently booked out on the 15th ...

Hi Everyone
I would like to come to London O2 meetup but have no ideas about where to meet at moment. Shame about Cafe Rouge. Will try and think . .

There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

There is a Wetherspoons pub , The Ledger Building , at Canary Wharf ,one tube stop from the O2, it is a ten minute walk from Canary Wharf Station Their website says open till 11pm on Sundays If coming by public transport then just get off one stop early , back on the tube for 2 mins to the O2 Pity about the Pilot , had a great time there in June , but at least we can get a pint and some food There is also an AllBarOne at 42 Mackenzie Walk , Canary Wharf , a bit upmarket of the Spoons , open till 2230 on Sundays Maybe the All Bar One would suit us better , and it may be a bit nearer the tube station Or if anyone knows Canary Wharf , are there any other places open on Sundays that would be suitable ? Expert advice appreciated. What do people think ?

Thanks for this! Very helpful!

I don't know either of them but All Bar One http://www.allbarone.co.uk/all-bar-one-canary-wharf/ looks good and is close to the tube station so would be convenient. If enough people wanted to go there, we could book a table ahead (if people wanted food) although it says there are usually tables available.

The Ledger Building http://www.jdwetherspoon.co.uk/home/pub ... r-building also looks OK although less info on the website

anyone with knowledge of the area?
