Is there a pub where Americans and interested by-standers are going to congregate to watch the election results on the night? Maybe a pub in Central London or Chelsea or somewhere? I'd like to be out and watch it with a crowd, especially with Americans, though I'm not American myself, and preferably a crowd of Obama supporters! (That's if I can get a babysitter)

Democrats Abroad have this list. It's going to be late - they won't start announcing results until after states' polls close (NY's close at 9pm, I think?). So early morning hours with some stuff (exit polls, etc) coming in earlier.

Lots of good ones there JJ. Mite head to the LIght bar in Shoreditch as it's a free one and organised by US expats. Wonder if there'll be Americans down The Ritzy, Bossy?
