Another suits night in Los Angeles, USA

Our member John in Los Angeles has told us of another suited event there for well-dressed men to connect discreetly, which he will be holding on Friday, May 17th in a nice hotel/ lounge bar in downtown LA from 7pm to 2am. This will be his 4th such event and they have proved very popular. For more details, John can be contacted at zuitzuit@hotmail.com for info, or you can join his Facebook group “Los Angeles Suit Men for Suited Men” and go to the “events tab”. This looks like being a regular fixture in this part of the world!

Switched on at the Walkie-Talkie

In early April a fair-sized group of us got high at the Darwin Brasserie, a restaurant situated among the palms and extensive foliage of the 'Sky Garden', the huge glassy viewing platform on the 36th floor of what has become known as the 'Walkie-Talkie' building. Compared with the 'Shard' and the 'Gherkin' - our previous encounters with high life cuisine - booking was easy and there was a relaxed atmosphere. The meal was good and the staff attentive, so coupled with the splendid views, it was a good night out all round!

Our March 29th Social was at the Grafton Hotel on Tottenham Court Road. We had enjoyed a previous visit there and had particularly liked their spacious restaurant and adjacent bar, also the 'Steak and Lobster' menu is attractive. We were less keen on the hour long wait between sitting down for the meal and receiving the first morsel!
Nevertheless, we were able to relax with drinks before, during and after the meal so all was well, and it was good to welcome a number of new members.

Wild about L'Oscar

Our February dinner and social took place at an interesting new hotel, L'Oscar, a few steps from Holborn tube station. It is apparently converted from a church but you wouldn't have guessed it from the smart and luxurious decor. There are two restaurants and two bars, but one of each were plenty for us, and we enjoyed a very good, reasonably priced 'pre-theatre' meal in Cafe L'Oscar (a very opulent cafe!). We then adjourned to the impressive circular bar, where we were made welcome by the staff. The great Oscar would have felt at home here!

An evening with the military

We were very pleased on February 15th to revisit the excellent and historic Cavalry and Guards Club in Piccadilly for a 'black tie' dinner where a record attendance enjoyed the Club's Champagne, followed by a splendid meal, all under the gaze of Field Marshals of the British Army whose portraits adorned the large room. We had been again welcomed by David Cowdery, the Club Secretary, who gave an interesting talk about these military dignitaries. A truly delightful evening!
