You can reserve seats or a table at the
milonga so that you can be with your friends.
However, no more than half of the table seats can be
reserved. Also, the bench seats and chairs around
the edge of the hall are all unreserved. This page
helps you make a reservation.
The tables are numbered 1 to 11 and the
number is displayed on each table. Tables 1-8 seat
4 people and tables 9-11 seat 5. Only
tables 1-4, 6-8 may be reserved.
Table 5 is always reserved by
Carablanca. People may sit there provided that
they are willing to move if special guests arrive.
Making a reservation
You may reserve 2 or 3 seats or a whole
table. If your party is larger than 4 people a
single table is usually sufficient. You can use it
as a base as most of the time some of your party will be
elsewhere eg on the dance floor. Exceptionally,
you can reserve two tables.
You may reserve as many days (or even
weeks) in advance as you wish. However, if you are
reserving on the day you need to do so before 4pm.
To make a reservation email "danny AT
carablanca DOT co DOT uk" saying:
- your name
- how many seats you need
- what table number you prefer.
If you wish you may reserve by Facebook
instead of email. But in that case you need to do
so a day in advance at the latest.
Taking your seats
Your table will have a Reserved sign on
it and your name.
You should ensure that at least one of
your party arrives before the first hour of the milonga
has passed; otherwise you may lose your reservation.
If your seats are occupied by others
then politely point out the Reserved sign. If this
doesn't work please see Danny or Diana.
