Spring Gathering at Taproom #307 in Gramercy

Join The Australian Community for our May 16th Social Gathering at Taproom #307.

It has been a few years since we last held a social gathering at Taproom 307,  but it was one of our most popular.  The location at 23rd Street and 3rd Avenue in Gramercy, which makes it geographically desirable for many members – including those in Brooklyn.

Taproom is known for its wide selection of beers on tap and great pub food.

You can RSVP using the link below.  Cash Bar, No Cover.

Our monthly gatherings are an excellent opportunity to meet other professional Australians in NYC, share knowledge and make new friends.

We hope to see you there!
