With both England and Australia still in the World Cup at the time of writing, it seems suitable venues to watch the matches in become harder to come by as the tournament progresses and the games get more important – pubs get busier to the point of almost bursting, and with the London Walkabouts and their big screens no more, space is even more at a premium in London.
One Aussie entrepreneur has spotted the gap in this seasonal market and subsequently launched the World Cup pop-up “Fat Ronaldo’s”, opening first in Shoreditch then moving this summer to a new and improved larger venue at Egg London in Kings Cross.
You can now watch the big matches in a choice of two rooms and two outdoor terraces, decked with huge HD screens and club standard Surround Sound, giving you and your crew a superlative viewing experience that’s a cut above most other venues around town. You can also bet on the games using this promo code, don’t leave it to late though as the World Cup will be over soon.
For food and all-important drink options, fresh handmade pizzas and ice-cold beers on tap are available, and private hire packages are also on offer for group or corporate bookings, giving you your own private seated section with your own screen.
No matter what spot you choose, whether the cooler air-conditioned space indoors or the airy terrace outside, you’re guaranteed an unobstructed view of the action, something you can never bank on in packed pubs across the capital.
Tickets are available via Design My Night and cost £10 with a complimentary pint or a Pimms, or for £20 per person you can book a private table area for yourself and friends, with the complimentary pint or Pimms plus a tasty homemade pizza included.
