BEST FOR A BIG-SCREEN EXPERIENCE: VINEGAR YARD
Vinegar Yard, next to London Bridge, has partnered with Adidas to create one of the biggest garden screens in the capital (6m x 3m). The Yard will be screening all Euro matches, from the opening Turkey v Italy game right through to the final, with table reservations going live this week. This huge outdoor venue will be taking table bookings for up to eight people for every match screening, with seating for hundreds of fans laid out around the single giant garden screen. Food and drink packages from Vinegar Yard’s various bars and street food traders will be available for the England games – we’ve got our eye on Baba G’s Indian-inspired ‘Bhangra burger’.
72-82 St Thomas Street, London Bridge, SE1 3QX
BEST FOR OPTIONS: SKYLIGHT LONDON
Skylight Rooftop has partnered with Budweiser and Bud Light – the official beers of the England team – to put together three exciting ways for fans to watch the footie this summer. With large LED screens on both the rooftop and inside Tobacco Dock, the venue will offer a great selection of food and drink during the games. A giant screen will be installed on its rooftop, as well as smaller ones under the pergola, with both spaces offering beer hall-style seating. The team is also transforming its Cocktail Cinema into a viewing screen, with comfortable seating, a private bar and sharing platters. For a smaller viewing experience, The Dock St Bar inside Tobacco Dock is available to book, and comes with private service and dedicated bar team. Budweiser will also be running various special events and activations throughout the summer.
