English Idioms

at my place

I'm unsure about the meaning of the expression "at my place" in the following sentence: "would you come and drink some sangria at my place"
Does it mean: "instead of me", because somebody has given me a glas of this drink and I detest it, but I know, you would like it


"with me, at the place where I'm working or living currently"?

Is it ambiguous or am I at a loss? What do you think of it?



  • Hi Gwendo,

    I haven't been on this forum for ages but I can see that it is still successful and some of you are really active.

    Your question has remained unanswered for three days. So I'll come to your rescue.

    Thanks for your invitation to come and drink at your place = at the place where your live.

    It might be far away... So,cheers!
  • You are welcome!
  • Hi Gwendo, I just wanna help you!

    The expression "at my place" replaces the exact place where you live, I mean, home = your house.

    I hope my comment had been useful! So, Where are you now? at your place?
  • bow gwendo i would help you !at my place show the exact place where do you are I supose your home
  • Thank you all for helping me to understand. Meanwhile the second form occurred in my GGlesson: "in my place"; and that means: instead of me.
    Now it's clear.

    Nice weekend to all of you!
