This week, our attention is on our Old Street premises. We’ll be offering some top suggestions on where to go for after work drinks in Central London. With an end to Covid restrictions looming, colleagues across the country will undoubtedly be preparing to resume post-work socialising; we certainly are! What better way to let off steam than heading to your favourite haunt for a drink, some nibbles, karaoke, football or to dance (at last)? Here are some of our top suggestions for where to head after the 9 to 5 is over.
