Today is Friday.
And every Friday there is a little thing that happens in London, that used to be held just around the corner from Soho, above The Coach & Horses Pub on Greek Street.
It’s official name of this thing is The Social Media Cafe…. We’ve been here before.
…but, the important thing is, it’s not there anymore.
Oh no. The SMC or ‘Tuttle Club‘ as it is fondly referred to by it’s regulars, has since moved since it’s days down in Soho and is now held just as regularly at The ICA (The Institute of Contemporary Arts) on The Mall.
– a bit swish huh? –
Notionally referred to as ‘Phase II‘ – this next evolutionary step of Tuttle has been running at The ICA for just over a month now and well, I love it… I’m gutted to be missing out on it again. I’m in Madrid at the moment, waiting to meet some cool Spanish Bloggers that are attending EventoBlog. No doubt I’ll be waxing lyrical about the Social Media Cafe (and it’s new home) as soon as I get the chance!
Thing is, I was part of the the team that championed the move from the C&H in Soho see and it irks me that I’ve only actually managed to make it along a handful of times since the big day. The interest and attendance levels have upped dramatically thanks to the support of the ICA; and the breadth and diversity of those that have discovered the Social Media Cafe through said institution has also increased.
One thing I can share with you today however is a little video that my good friend Steve Lawson took last time I was there. Steve took it upon himself to ask me exactly why I go and why I like it so much…
Nice one Steve 🙂
What do you think of the Tuttle Club?
Have you been? What do you like about it?
If you’ve never been, why not?
Come on down!

I go to Tuttle quite often and, although I miss the coziness of the C&H, the ICA bar is a much better venue in terms of space and vibe.
I love coming down to the laid back atmosphere to have a chat about anything or giving birth to an entirely new term or theory that (we hope) no-one else has ever thought of.
But most of all, I like the fact that I can wake up late and not go to work on a Friday morning!
Just paid my first visit to Tuttle since it’s move and I have to say it’s just as good. I’m looking forward to being able to get along a bit more regularly now I’m working in London again, and maybe I’ll even starting contributing to ideas rather than general chit chat a bit more as I find my feet and learn more stuff :o)
I’m liking the sound of this event, but when is it exactly?
Hey ‘Thoroughly Good’,
The Tuttle runs EVERY Friday at The ICA from 10am ’til 1pm in the bar.
A lot of the detail can be found in their blog somewhere or you can just sign up on the Wiki when you think you might be coming along.
Links to both are below…
Hopefully I’ll see you there!
Great video. 🙂
