Where To Watch The FA Cup Final in London
Is there a more romantic occasion in world football than the F.A Cup Final? Certainly not in our eyes, which is why it’s of paramount importance that you find a fantastic boozer to catch all the action. Can Arsenal scoop the silverware for a second year running, or will Tim Sherwood’s revitalised Aston Villa lift that famous trophy? Here’s the best places to watch the F.A Cup Final.
Catch every second of the football season at Elk Bar in Fulham. With a bar stocked full of all your favourite beverages, a number of plasma screens spread across the entire venue and live DJ sets on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, you have everything you'll need to either celebrate a victory or drown your sorrows with a tall, ice-cold pint.
Belushi's in London Bridge absolutely lives and breathes sport. Showing all the big sporting fixtures across a multitude of screens and projectors, the venue comes into its own on F.A Cup Final day where football fans from around the country gather for 90 minutes of nail-biting tension. Get yourself in The Dugout downstairs, where a decent crowd will watch Arsenal's clash with Aston Villa then enjoy food, booze, beer pong and dancing afterwards.
Theo sure looks enthusiastic about the package going down at Gigalum; the Clapham hotspot for sport, drinking and dancing. Head to the fringes of Clapham Common this Saturday for a few beers in the sunshine, then dip inside to watch the match on large HD screens from the serenity of a sofa.
It wouldn’t really be a proper sports bar channel without a nod to Riley’s. Going big with 34 screens, ample pool and ping pong tables, 4 bars and a hearty selection of Americana food, this Haymarket location is undoubtedly one of the best places to watch the F.A Cup Final in London. With pumping DJ nights kicking off later, it makes sense to throw a few shapes after the fat lady has sung.
Another bustling joint huge on its footie is Nordic, a Soho basement bar with Scandinavian food, potent cocktails and a spot of ping-pong to keep you busy at half time. Lively on matchday yet retaining a friendly and welcoming atmosphere, Nordic shows the action on four large screens and offers Sport & Snack packages for the big fixtures.
