Euro 2016 is almost upon us, with hosts France kicking off the tournament against Romania on Friday, June 10.
With the sun breaking through the familiar British clouds, Canary Wharf folk will be looking to venture out of their homes to catch all the action.
So here are a few places that might be tempting for football fans from all walks of life.
The Pearson Room
Located at the heart of Canary Wharf in Canada Square, The Pearson Room offers a sophisticated approach to the art of football fandom. Good for refined England supporters.
The Italian restaurant based at Cabot Square has two large screens available at its alfresco bar so you can enjoy all the action with a Prosecco-based cocktails and Italian nibbles. Good for Italy fans.
This riverfront venue at Westferry has the perfect setting for a relaxing view of the games and with many matches beginning at 5pm, punters can take advantage of the bar’s post-work happy hour. Good for staring wistfully at the beauty of the Thames after your team has lost.
Sports Bar And Grill
Some might say the obvious choice and the Crossrail Place bar is offering a Euro 2016 hospitality package and voucher for customers to make the most out of the tournament. Good for, well, any nationality. They’ve got it covered.
Slug And Lettuce
Recently refurbished and suitably located at the foot of One Canada Square for those who need to get home via the Tube station when the match is over. Good for Belgians and others.
The Henry Addington
One of the traditional options owned by Nicholsons, the establishment at Mackenzie Walk offers fans real ale with simple pub food. Just the kind of simplicity you need while watching the game. Good for the Germans thanks to a strong sausage game on the menu.
Corney And Barrow
Or for those who wish to move away from the traditional pub football crowd, why not add a drop of class to the occasion at wine-specialists Corney And Barrow at Cabot Square? The team has event put together a food and drinks package especially for the occasion. Good for the French to drown their sorrows in wine.
