Royal Opera House drinks

Another work function, more free drinks, more work networking, and another famous London function venue visited.

After our last BRE function at 'the Gherkin' (30 St Mary Axe/Swiss RE building), Bronwen and I received another call up to attend the BRE's annual conference at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

The afternoon was set aside for what was a good presentation and discussion session between panelists and the audience covering architecture, sustainable development, town planning, and urban design; and following that delegates filled the huge glass atrium function area on the first floor for plenty of free drinks and networking with some pretty interesting attendees to chat to.

We eventually left when the drinks ran out and Brownen took me down the street to have a very strong 9% beer at the Lowlander Bar - this is a great bar I'd recommend to anyone stuck for somewhere to go in tourist-trodden Covent Garden.
