Ir a tomar algo

The expression ir a tomar algo conveys the idea of meeting in some establishment to have a drink, although it is less about drinking and more about socialising. Whether you are asked to ir a tomar un café, ir a tomar una cerveza or ir a tomar un helado, the point is to meet up with friends, have a chat and spend some time together.
