July 18, 2012

A round up of my top sport's bar's in London...

Whether you want to head out in London to support your country, watch your favourite Netball, Football or Rugby team anihalate their opposition, or have a casual pint in a great atmosphere with like minded people, a sports bar will be perfect. I have highlighted the below sports bars that I would recommend are definately worth a visit.

If you have been to one I have not mentioned below, that you have absolutely loved, I would appreciate knowing. It gives me an excuse to have a drink while going to check them out.

  • Waxy O’Connor (Soho) – A very friendly Irish bar situated in the heart of London. The interior of the place adds to the overall feel and atmosphere of the bar. They also have some great facilities to hire out, which each have their own theme. They have many screens showing big sporting matches, predominantly rugby, which attract a large amount of people, adding to the fantastic atmosphere. Waxy O’Connors’ welcoming hospitality and great traditional pub food makes it one of my first choice bars.



  • Jetlag bar and restaurant (Cleveland Street) – Jetlag is a “local bar with a global vibe”, serving street food dishes from around the world along with premium beers and cocktails. It’s also one of London’s premier sports bars, where you can watch live games – from American college to major league football – on a 15ft HD cinema screen with surround sound. For me, the large TV, comfy chairs and excellent customer service makes this place. Service is great as waiters continually come to your table to take orders for another drink (may be dangerous on a Monday night having beer after beer and then having to show for work the next day).



  • Bar Kick (Shoreditch) – Bar Kick serves Mediterranean food with an emphasis on organic ingredients and continental beers. They have eight foosball tables and various TVs, including a large screen downstairs for sporting events. The foosball tables are super popular and because it is something different are often being used. Often quiet during the day, but come knock off time from work, this place is usually buzzing with very social, sporty people.



  • Sports Café (Haymarket) – Great place to watch a variety of sports (football, cricket, netball, rugby and many more). There are 2 large screens and over 70 plasmas creating awesome atmosphere amongst matches as well as pool tables and interactive games to keep you busy during half time. Great to host functions and parties as rooms can cater for up to 600 guests.



  • Sports bar and grill (Marylebone station)– Great location, inbetween Lords and Wembley stadium, so an optimal place to have a drink before and after sporting matches. Delicious pub food is available, as well as a great atmosphere for watching matches and events.  Areas can be reserved for leaving drinks, birthday parties or any other celebration. The private ‘Scarlet Bar’ holds up to 60 guests and basement bar with 5 pool tables ideal for corporate, and larger events hold up to 150 guests. Spectacular sports coverage is shown on 16 (52 inch) HD screens, great for eating, drinking and watching sport with friends and/or colleagues.
