HPE's London boozer dubbed the 'Hewlett You Inn?'

The people have spoken. Pints all round

It's official: Hewlett Packard Enterprise's private London drinking club has been dubbed the "Hewlett You Inn?" in a reader poll which saw the name pip "The DrinkJet" to the post by a single vote.

To recap for the benefit of those who inexplicably missed what was the single most significant IT-related boozer scoop of 2015, it came to our attention that HPE had applied for a licence to turn its new HQ at 1 Aldermanbury Square in the City of London (pictured below during refurbishment) into corporate party central.

Disagreeably, only "employees, officers, guests and persons attending bona fide private functions" will benefit from the permission to dispense alcohol and spin a few platters. Nonetheless, we magnanimously decided to offer our readers' services in naming the premises.

We're sure you'll all agree that the suggestion by ".@." was a worthy winner. We're now mulling just how to get some "Hewlett You Inn?" artwork knocked up, encased in improbably excessive packaging and delivered to Aldermanbury Square for a ceremonial presentation to HPE. Watch this space... ®
