Our new home is The Cuban at Citypoint (Moorgate). Brilliantly located only minutes away from Liverpool Street and Moorgate Stations we have the whole basement which has acres of room – you can find detailed directions below in blue. Did I mention it has seating and tables for well over 100 people (140 is the official capacity)? Not just any old seating – ooh, what should I tell you about first? Maybe the awesomely huge white sofa snaking along the whole of the wall of the basement? Perhaps I might also be able to interest you with a PRIVATE bar for the event which – apart from the tea and coffee included in your admission price – will be offering prolonged “happy hour” 2 for 1 deals on selected cocktails, as well as bargain prices on certain beers, wine and sangria! What could be better for our booze challenge?
Maybe you're more of a 'visuals' person...this is just a part of the room:
And did I mention the SEATING and TABLES for over 100 people????

Monday 5th October 2009
6.00pm – 8.30pm
Venue – The Cuban Bar, Citypoint, One Ropemaker Street, EC2Y 9AY
For a map click here
Although the address is Ropemaker Street it’s actually on the Citypoint plaza. Just behind the Moorgate tube station entrance that’s in the row of shops including HMV, Hotel Chocolat, Eat and Clinton Cards, you’ll see a very tall building. That’s the Citypoint Tower. Head towards it and you’ll see a paved plaza-type area. Near the base of the Tower you will see a small newsagent kiosk and a Costa, to the left of these (if facing the tower) are The Rack & Tenter, then Prets. Head towards Prets into a covered walkway at the base of City point. This is where the Cuban bar is. We’ll be in the basement.
Entry fee: £5 – even if you don’t wish to enter the competition why not come along to taste the cupcakes? (Entry fee includes tea or coffee)
Timetable of events:
6.00-6.45pm – Entries are labelled and plated up
6.45 onwards – Eating and voting commences
Please note that you are most welcome to arrive any time after 6.00pm and avail yourself of the tea and coffee. As usual, I’d be grateful if you could let me know if you’re coming along (and entering).
