Silicon Drinkabout London

Silicon Drinkabout is a weekly meet-up for startups and techies to meet like-minded people, have some fun and relax at the end of the working week. The event was born in London in 2011 when Michael Acton Smith gathered a small group of tech friends in a local pub. 3beards founders Ben, Bryce, Mike & Joe took over to make Silicon Drinkabout what it is today.
