London: Fat Ronaldo’s

Smokey Tails founder Seth Troxler is responsible for this slice of pop-up football fabulousness. With a late finish of 2am, the arches of the original Shoreditch station have been kitted out with big screens, deck chairs, palm trees and cocktails.

London: SushiSamba

Sitting sassy on the 39th floor, this girlfriend-friendly spot is the one to book if you want to do it in style. Book packages for £75 per person with tables for 4-12 guests. If you get bored of the game, you can soak up London’s skyline instead.

London: The Box

Huge screens, gourmet food, unlimited booze and a World Cup themed show – what more could you want for £250 per person (£150 for standing). Wearing nipple tassels to a football match? That’s one more thing to cross off the bucket list.

Liverpool: Camp & Furnace

Fanpark at BarChick’s favourite northern every-purpose joint will be showing all the World Cup games. Second and third super screens will be fired up for all England games and Brazilian-inspired street food and cocktails will be on hand for refuels.

Manchester: ITV Fever Pitch

Four hundred and fifty tonnes of sand have been shipped into the former Granada Studios in the hope of bringing Brazil to Manchester. Watch the action on a 40-square-metre screen and down drinks from the Little Copacabana Beach Bar.

Birmingham: The Jekyll & Hyde

The Gin Parlour at Jekyll & Hyde will be offering an entirely different atmosphere in which to enjoy the game. Eat burgers and down G&Ts until it seems like England may actually win.

Brighton: Brighton’s Big Screen

The big screen on the beach next to Brighton pier is usually reserved for the cinema festival, but this year The World Cup will be shown, too. Eat fish and chips as the sea licks the shore. See? The UK’s better than Brazil anyway.

Leeds: Elbow Room

With a 600 capacity, 15 TVs, three projectors and a 4am licence, why would you watch the footie anywhere else? Pre-order buckets of beer and get stuck into the ‘build your own’ menu. Let the games begin!

Bristol: Cider Press

These guys have got so much more going on than just cider! They’ll be showing most of the matches (within their licencing times), they’ve got a special World Cup menu to keep you fed until 1am, a lot of booze and yellow cards that will give you 10% off. Win!

Worcester: Bushwackers

Bushwackers’ garden is being put to better use than usual; think less sluttiness and more football chants. The outdoor bar promises to keep everyone lubed up and the huge screen will be impossible to miss.
