Seven places to watch the Euros

KETTNER’S, SOHO
This Georgian mansion in the middle of Soho is famous for its glamorous clientele, burlesque aesthetic, selection of English wine and champagne vibe. Not, on first glance, the sort of place you’d think of for watching the football. Well, think again: with a warren of private rooms available for hire, it’s just the place to show how un-hooliganesque fandom can be. Try the Salle de France room for a delectable viewing experience. Matches will also be screened in the main area. 29 Romilly Street, W1D 5HP. www.kettners.com

BAR KICK, SHOREDITCH
This Shoreditch institution is one of London’s most dedicated (but cool) venues for football screenings – and an array of table football sets ensures you can put your own sporting dreams into action when the whistle’s blown at half-time. A good selection of beer, cocktails and food accompanies a fun crowd. 127 Shoreditch High Street, London, E1 6JE. www.cafekick.co.uk

VIBE BAR, BRICK LANE
With a jumbo screen outdoors and giant projector screens inside, Vibe is excellently equipped for Euro 2012 screenings. If the weather’s good, grab a pew outside and take advantage of Vibe’s famous open-air barbecue. Inside or out, the place is always buzzing (the clue’s in the name), so why not make a night of it? 91-95 Brick Lane, E1 6QL. www.vibe-bar.co.uk

PROUD AT CAMDEN, CHALK FARM
Proud Camden is going all out for the football with several enticing offers in its stables venue, the Old Horse Hospital, which boasts massive plasma screens showing every match, tasty bites, lots of drinks and a party atmosphere. Hire one of seven stables, which will comfortably fit 20 and comes with waitress service, or book individual seats in the gig room for £3 per person, including club entry for the night. £160 for a stable with hostess service; £200 per stable includes a match-length barbecue and a case of Carling per stable. For other deals and offers for watching the Euro 2012, go to www.proudcamden.com. The Stables Market, NW1 8AH

JETLAG BAR, FITZROVIA
Sport meets cocktails at this international-themed cafe, restaurant and sports bar in Fitzrovia. Food is small plates from around the world so all customers should feel welcome – regardless of the team they support. The Lotus Lounge has a cinema screen, mood lighting and impressive drinks and food – it’s a popular venue for screenings so availability is limited. Otherwise there are comfortable sofas in the downstairs lounge and plenty of other vantage points. 125 Cleveland Street, W1T 6QB. www.jetlagbar.com

THE SPORTING PAGE, CHELSEA
A favourite for Chelsea locals, general good-timers and fans returning from sporting fixtures in the mood to celebrate or drown their sorrows, this tasty pub has a fantastic outside terrace (with heaters) for half-time. Inside, there are four screens. Watch with one of the pub’s six ales on tap. 6a Camera Place, SW10 0BH, www.thesportingpagechelsea.co.uk

THE MITRE, GREENWICH
A Grade-II listed coaching inn with a main bar, two beer gardens, conservatory and 16 bedrooms, the Mitre is one of London’s loveliest venues for sport-watching (you’ll have to keep your bad behaviour outside). A good selection of beer and lovely seasonal British food makes the pub a winner – football or no. 291 Greenwich High Road, www.mitregreenwich.com
