Kant's Cave

The Cock Tavern, Chalton St, LondonOn the first Wednesday of every month the PFA meets at Kant's Cave for a lecture, debate and social evening. This takes place in the Cock Tavern, 23 Phoenix Road, London NW1 1HB; We are now, finally, back in the upstairs function room after over a year in the downstairs back bar while building work was taking place.  The back bar was far from ideal for a number of reasons, so we are grateful for your forbearance over the last year.

The idea of using the function room of a pub for our philosophy meetings is that we would like to combine serious philosophical activity with an informal exchange of ideas and views. We therefore invite everybody to stay on after the lectures for more talk and debate. 

All lectures start at 7.30 pm; there is no bar upstairs but the downstairs bar is open all day. There is a £2 door charge for non-PFA members.
