A lively and entertaining sports bar in the heart of Fulham, The Slug at Fulham is always a popular spot for Australians. It boasts 18 HD TV screens regularly broadcasting all the AFL and NFL action, which can be enjoyed to some fine drinks and perfectly grilled cuisine. What makes this place special however, is their Thursday event "Bogan Bingo" described as a "full throttle, rock n roll, comedy, bingo game show" that's definitely worth trying out.
Another fantastic sports bar in Fulham, Elk Bar is always worth a visit. An incredible selection of drinks, they offer such great deals as 2-4-1 cocktails every day between 5pm and 8pm but the best night is arguably on Thursday night "We Love Mojitos" in which mojitos only cost £2.95 all night. Offering some fine cuisine as well, head on down now!
Bring a relaxed Melbourne feel to London, Lantana Café is a quintessentially Australian hangout spot. Named after a plant which is able to grow in difficult terrain, the place is well-known for its coffee and their simple but delicious menu. Perfect for weekend brunches or a lunchtime meet, they can suit any mood your thing. Plus, if coffee is not your thing, their generous drinks selection will surely be enough to whet your appetite.
Whilst predominantly an Irish bar, The Alexandra has got quite the antipodean touch to it, regularly playing the very best of Australian Rules Football and Super 15 Rugby, whilst being long term supporters of Wandsworth Demons AFL club. With table football and ping pong tables available and varied selection of beer, it's an incredibly fun atmosphere that's always worth a visit.
A favourite amongst Aussies, Walkabout is often the go-to destination, and their Temple venue is definitely the cream of the crop. A versatile venue, during the day it serves as a great sports bar yet once when the sun goes down it turns into a raucous party affair and regularly attracts big crowds.
An amazing venue that never fails to disappoint, Jetlag Bar is a popular destination for many backpackers and especially amongst the Australian community. Set over two floors, you can have a relaxing meal on the ground floor whilst you can chill out in the downstairs lounge on their many sofas. With live music and sport screenings on throughout the week, there's always something going on and you'll be sure to come back again and again.
An intimate restaurant bar just around the corner of Old Street Station, Salvation Jane is always an incredible place to stop by for food any time of the day.
