Best Places to Watch the Rugby World Cup 2019

21 October 2019

Home House – Pretty much any event in this mind-bendingly beautiful private members’ club is worth attending, no less the most exciting sport of the season.

Century Club – For an exclusive redoubt in central London, Century Club is one of the finest. Beloved by media types and rugby fans alike, it’s the perfect venue to enjoy drinks and maybe dinner whilst watching the drama unfold on the pitch.

The Blue Posts – This Soho stalwart was recently taken over by Zoe and Layo Paskin (The Palomar, The Barbary). Now the pub serves some of the best food in London. They’ve installed a big screen for the match downstairs or alternatively larger groups can book out the entire cocktail bar – The Mulwray – on the first floor.

M Restaurant – 75-inch screens? Check. Beer? Check. Fine wine? Check. Dry-aged steak from across the planet? Double check. M caters to pretty much anything the sport-obsessed sybarite might want. Get in.

Broadleaf – Situated in the centre of the City just a stone’s throw away from Liverpool Street, the Broadleaf is a posher alternative to your local boozer with a strong food offering, great cocktails and an outsized screen for your viewing pleasure.

Sushisamba – I think we can all agree that, at 38 floors high, Sushisamba is a cut above its competitors when it comes to screening the World Cup.

Brigadiers – Launched by the JKS Group (Gymkhana, Trishna), Brigadiers has been one of the most eagerly awaited restaurants to arrive a Bloomberg Arcade, serving Indian-inspired barbecue to City boys and girls. Guests can book a private screening event in one of their three private rooms or go wild with the crowd in The Pool room or Blighters.

Playboy Club – For anyone who wants to catch the tournament in Mayfair, the Playboy Club is a great spot for it, and if your team doesn’t come out on top there are plenty of other ways to divert oneself.
