The MiniBar Mantra

MiniBar is a social evening in East London which offers people a chance to snaffle some free beer while discussing p2p, Creative Commons, web applications, social networking and general Web 2.0 (3.0) mayhem & fandango.

Here you can find people who will help you making your next project work. The event is what we call 'useful fun'. Usually there are 200+ of London's - and beyond - finest web entrepreneurs, designers, programmers, tech journalists, bloggers, VC?s, and technology freaks.

What we offer:

- Web-Entrepreneurs can present their start-up and tech ideas
- Presentations will be archived at
- Some start ups will be featured on O'Reilly GMT, the European O'Reilly blog

And of course, Free Drinks, A Lot of Fun and many Useful People
