The definitive guide to London dining & events

...World Cup Venues

Date: 11.06.10 Category:

“Whether you are devoted to the game, patriotic to the core or just like the idea of soaking up some football fever, here are some ideas of where to watch The World Cup.”

With a lit barbeque, outdoor television screen and plenty of seating on the forecourt, The Bluebird offers an ideal spot to watch the live games with friends, buckets of beer and a sizzling al fresco menu. Paradise by way of Kensal Green will be showing all England matches with entertainment following the games on the 18th and 23rd. The Orange will be showing the games in the bar and hosting private screenings in the Garden Atrium Bar for up to 40 guests, and Harrison’s has a large plasma screen in the Alter Ego bar and a small screen installed in the main bar area so no one has to miss a kick.

indigO2 in conjunction with Nintendo is opening its doors (with no entry fee) to show the matches on a massive 20ft screen. Or for something a bit different, watch the game whilst doing some bowling at Bloomsbury Lanes.

For something a little more wild, Raffles will be screening various matches in their VIP bar and a little further down the road, Tuatara have installed a projector inside and a 50 inch TV on the roof deck and are serving free World Cup Fever Cocktails at half time. And with 5 huge projection screens, free entry, free cocktail on arrival and discounted drinks, 24 Club is also a worthy destination.

Or avoid the rowdy crowds and feast on a delicious buffet with a couple of beers at One Aldwych before sitting back with 20-30 guests to watch the game in the luxurious private screening room.

And finally, don't forget to look at the Deals Page (and tick 'Refine by World Cup') to see exclusive Lady Blonde deals (available to all Lady Blonde readers) at these venues and more.
