December Drinks at Hole In The Wall – 15 Cliff Street FiDi

Our monthly gatherings are always an opportunity to make new Australian friends and share your New York experiences, so on the evening of Wednesday December 13 we will be hosting a small gathering where members and guests are welcome.

December is a difficult time to organize after work drinks given the number of competing office Holiday parties that happen this time of year. However, what is more difficult is being away from family and friends in a new city.

Our friends at Hole in the Wall's new café, which recently opened up on 15 Cliff Street in the Financial District, are opening up their doors for our members to gather together to share some Holiday cheer, and meet other Australians who are living in New York.

In addition to being a Café, the 15 Cliff Street location has a fully licensed bar so you have the choice of caffeinated or alcoholic drinks - not necessarily in that order!

An outside view of Hole in the Wall's Cliff Street location.

 

Space is very limited, so RSVP early as this event is likely to oversubscribe.
