Save The Social
We did it
On 31st August 2019 we successfully raised £145,144 with 1932 supporters in 171 days

We've stopped the immediate sale of The Social. Now we're trying to buy a big enough chunk of the lease to secure the future of the bar.

Extending, adding, helping.


quick update on the Crowdfunding campaign for the Social.


We've already extended the raise period in order to secure a bigger chunk of the lease for 5 Little Portland Street. Now we're extending again ahead of announcing a load of new rewards and shows over the coming months. We're already put a one-off Impulse! night with special guests Four Tet, John Coxon and many more - look out for similar very soon. And we're starting to get rewards out to people in the next couple of weeks.

Please keep coming to the bar and having a drink - that's still an incredibly effective way of helping (helping both us and yourself - helping you to get drunk that is). And keep an eye on the Crowdfunder page for new additions. 

Thanks for everything you've done to help so far, here's to the next stage and a mighty chunk of lease!

Name the upstairs bar

We all really love the upstairs bar, could it be one the greatest bars ever? We think so. If you're a super Social supporter with a bit of money to spare and you fancy naming the upstairs bar in your honour or someone else's then this is the reward for you. We'll chuck in a 5k tab for you to use in your renamed bar!
