The NFL Super Bowl LII is coming up on Sunday 4th February and many people are full of apprehension as they place their bets on the big game at sites like https://sportsbook.fanduel.com/. Lucky for them, there’s a ton of sports bars and restaurants in London celebrating with screenings and fun parties so they can see if they have won their bets in a brilliant atmosphere. I’ve rounded up all the best spots to catch the action of America’s most iconic sporting event of the year. Grab your football jersey, get ready to chow down on some burgers and hot dogs and settle in to watch the New England Patriots go head to head with the Philadelphia Eagles. It’s no doubt going to be an exciting show down, guys!
Greenwood in Victoria is one of my favourite sports bars and it’s bringing all the excitement, drama and buzz from Minneapolis to London. Greenwood has two dedicated bars that will be screening the games on 16 large screens. If you pre-purchase a £15 ticket, you’ll get a burger – opt for either a double cheese, smoked BBQ short rib, buttermilk chicken or falafel and halloumi with a beer, which is a serious bargain. They’ll also be serving stone-baked pizzas and sharing platters. Greenwood will be open until 3am. The event is free to attend and starts at 9pm. The package can be pre-booked in advance here which guarantees entry, walk-ins are also welcome, however seating will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
