oh no no i'm not already on it, i just want to say that we also thought about that and did some small brainstorming and that i have possible contact for bars.
@Robert "discuss this internally" i mean in Berlin Team email, not at the last orga meetup which I wasn't there.
anyway yes let's make it all together.
yesterday I actually checked that bar for another event and I think it fit great because it has two room, one with bar and little dj corner (no dance floor, just some professional music) and then another comfortable room with sofa, perfect for talking, so we can also do some updates announcement.
Also the owner seems quite open and friendly so we can maybe find a deal if we want to bring some cookies or we need to reserve some spot
The only small issue: The bar is in Sonnenalle 67, which is not the most comfortable place to reach with public transport. I mean, there are many bus going there and there is Sonnenalle sbahn and Rathaus Neuköll ubhan close, but not so close for this Winter
The other idea was Loophole (you probably know it) which during the week we can easily reserve just for us (still have to ask but I think so). It has one nice room for chatting but the other is more a small dance floor.
We can of'course decided/ask just to not put music there and move some sofas and make it more chatting room...
The good thing is that Loophole is really close to ubhan Rathaus Neuköll.
Both of them aren't available on weekends but it shouldn't be an issue for us
Let me know how all of this sounds to you
