Watch the World Cup in London

Whether you're a hardcore football fan or someone who'd rather subject themselves to a Piers Morgan series on repeat, the World Cup is a great excuse for merriment for all! Here's where you can watch the World Cup in London...

Fat Ronaldo's, Shoreditch

Brought to you by the dream team of Andy Bird of Happiness Forgets & party crew Love Fever and James York Price of Drinksmith, this 5 week long pop up will be happening in the brand new double arched event space, Kachette in the heart of Shoreditch.  Open from 2pm – 2am come down and enjoy B-I-G screen action from the comfort of your deck chair under the tropical palm trees of Carlton's Palm-er Bar and ‘Messi' burgers by Smokey Tails BBQ. Live DJ's and classic match re-runs will keep 300 football fans occupied in between the games.   Walk-in or reserve seating with a food & drink package from £25/head.

World Cup at The Wick, Hackney

The Wick has been transformed into a mini festival - with both indoor and outdoor spaces – and massive screens to show all of the action.  Alongside plenty of booze is food from Big Apple Hot Dogs, Sugar Shack, Jigger Pokery vintage ice cream parlour and more.  Those inspired by the games can even have a kick-about on the 5 a side pitches, whilst live DJ's and bands will keep the party vibe kicking.  If that's not enough, they'll even have street-art installations, fire-breathing dragons and a PlayStation room!

Boteco Brasil, Soho

Boteco Brasil Soho will allow Londoners to experience a month of football, food and cultural experiences so authentic that it's London's only Brazilian football event with official backing from The Brazilian Embassy!  There's no streetfood here as acclaimed chef Simone Matter takes to the kitchen for a creative menu of Brazilian dishes.  With a changing programme of film screenings, exhibitions, talks and culinary classes in between matches, Boteco Brasil will show visitors that there's much more to Brazil than beaches, football and samba!  Tickets start at £40. *Special Offer* - LFLD readers can get 25% off Boteco Brasil tickets! Just use the discount code 'brazillovesyou' (offer available whilst tickets last)

Far Rockaway, Shoreditch

Having recently had a riotous night at Far Rockaway for the Champions League Final, I can attest to its credentials as a brilliant place to watch the football.  There's a big screen on pretty much every wall of the massive venue so you won't miss a minute of the game.  Moreover, they have created a special World Cup pizza menu inspired by all of the major nations.  Walk-in or reserve seating with a food & drink package for £40/head including food & drink.

World Cup Bar @ Globe House, Bermondsey

Globe House on Bermondsey Street is being transformed into a football fan's dream.  Have a warm-up beer upstairs in the Home Bar, before moving into the main event in the Away Bar where master mixologist Jim Wrigley will be knocking up an awesome array of cocktails.  Giving the football feel is a turfed floor and garden furniture, whilst food comes courtesy of Pizza Lupa.
