On one of London’s rare
sweltering evening, members of both sites came to the beautiful Après in West London for a night of drinks, food, music and even a little
bit of drunk list making.
“WOW! So many yelpers and qypers
in one place! My social butterfly skills worked overtime,” Emma C wrote.
though at the beginning I felt a bit guilty about being 'underground' on such a
lovely evening, I'm fast to admit I loved the air conditioning," she continued. "Also let's not
forget those Raspberry Mules – I want to drink them all day, they were super
delirious as were those mini burgers #yummy.”
Taking up the decked-out neon-glowing basement area of this
cocktail bar, about 80 yelpers and qypers filled the space. Après went all out hosting the evening
with a selection of their amazing cocktails, being made constantly behind the
bar, like Raspberry Mules and the Palomas.
Chris P drank it up: “We
were immediately offered a drink coming in, and I started with the Espresso
Martini, made with rum. It was exactly what I needed! According to the young lady who brought us
the drink, it was coffee that Après roasts on their own. A nice little touch.”
The whole event was set to music with the help of the
Christian Miller duet (with Aaron Liddard on sax). “Had an amazing night and the cocktails were the cherry on the
top after a long hot sunny day! Gotta say I'll be going back to après as I love
the decor and the atmosphere was buzzing!” Saima M told us.
When everyone was nicely buzzed, everything got a little
mixed up with drunk list making! Team were formed and it went down “Family
Fortune” style (or “Family Feud” depending on what country you’re in.) The
yelpers had to guess things like The Best Burgers in London, Top BBC Shows or
Most Quoted Movies of All Time.
Lauren V sums up the event nicely: “Coming off the absolutely baking central line,
how lovely to descend into the frosty depths of the lounge and be handed an
ice-cold cocktail! good music, great food(those sliders were perfectly
cooked), tasty drinks and lovely staff.”
