1 Eversholt Street, London, NW1 1DN
The main feature for this event will be The Bree Louise, which will be closing its doors for the very last time the following weekend to make way for HS2, but The Doric Arch is a very convenient meeting point as it’s just outside Euston station – take “Way Out 2 Euston Road”, look for the gap between Nando’s and William Hill and you’ll find the pub about 30 yards or so down the alleyway.
The Doric Arch – http://www.doric-arch.co.uk – is named after the Euston Arch, the original entrance to Euston Station, which was built in 1837 but demolished in the 1960s when the station was re-devoloped. You can read more about it at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Euston_Arch . One small consolation is that there are plans to re-build it as part of the HS2 project.
The plan is to move on to The Bree Louise, 69 Cobourg Street, NW1 2HH – http://www.breelouise.pub – at around 8.30/8.45. I don’t suppose the building itself is of huge architectural significance and the interior is pretty basic, but it’s a proper traditional pub which has built its reputation on offering one of the best selections of reasonably priced ales in London, so it will be a sad loss.
The Bree Louise usually closes at 11pm but there are several options nearby for those who want to stay out a bit later, including the Exmouth Arms, 1 Starcross Street, NW1 2HR – http://www.publove.co.uk/exmouth-arms-euston – which is open until midnight and The Rocket, 120 Euston Road, NW1 2AL – https://www.therocketeustonroad.co.uk – which is open until 2am.
