When

Every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 4.00–5.30 pm.
Where

A local pub in Canonbury

Offers an opportunity to meet and practise German in a social setting. All levels welcome!

We meet informally once a month in a pub to speak in German about “Gott und die Welt”. The format is open; members choose what they want to talk about — no preparation, no teacher, no set topics, texts or presentations!

Participants are expected to buy a drink(s) in the pub and pay individually.

Stammtisch Sign*Stammtisch (German for "regulars' table”) is an informal group meeting held on a regular basis, and also the usually large, often round table around which the group meets. A Stammtisch is not a structured meeting, but rather a friendly get-together. Traditionally, the meeting table is marked with a somewhat elaborate sign reserving it for regulars. Historically, a Stammtisch was an all-male affair that might involve socialising, card playing (such as Skat or Schafkopf), and often political or philosophical discussions. The words Stammtischpolitik (Stammtisch politics) and Stammtischniveau (Stammtisch level) describe the simplified nature of Stammtisch discussions, and have an established metaphorical usage in describing simplified political and social discussions beyond the Stammtisch itself.  (Wikipedia)
