Stammtisch [ˈʃtamtɪʃ] is a German word I learnt yesterday which means “regulars table”. It usually refers to a group of people who get together for an informal meeting regularly, maybe in a local bar or café, and to the table where they sit. They might play cards, discuss politics or philosophy, or just chat.
It is also used for meet-ups where people get together to practise their languages, so my language café group might be called a Stammtisch in Germany.
Are there similar words in other languages for this?
