While American football isn’t the most popular of sports here in London, the Superbowl is another story. Check out the top 5 sports bars in London for the best places to watch the big game.
1 Sports Bar and Grill
Located in the heart of Marylebone, Sports Bar and Grill features a private 'Scarlet Bar' for up to 60 guests and a basement sports bar with 5 American pool tables. The bar is open for breakfast, lunch & dinner, to suit whichever global game you are watching on the 16 (52 inch) Sony Bravia Motionflow HD screens.

Jetlag’s lounge boasts a high definition Pioneer cinema screen, outstanding sound system, and backed by an impressive 7.2 acoustic sound system, you’ll see—and hear—every piece of the action. During big games, footy fans from all over the country cheer on their teams watched on the big screen downstairs. The bar offers an array of international street food, which in turn means the international clientele and cheers are not always in favour of English teams.

3 The Famous Three King
This place always gets rave reviews from sports fans and with multiple plasma screens on every wall, split game coverage of up to 16 games, re-run matches, Sky, Setanta and whatever else is going on in the world of sport, chances are you won’t miss your fixture. There’s also pool tables, quiz machines and Fifa video games. Understandably you can expect a largely male clientele.
4 Bar Kick
On two floors of an old Shoreditch warehouse, the biggest table football bar in Europe boasts eight tables, four on each floor, and attracting enthusiasts from all over the world. Over the years, Bar Kick has built up a reputation of bringing multiple nations together over a game of football—be it on the babyfoot table or on the big screen and during the World Cup promises to be no exception. The Shoreditch venue has three 42″ screens upstairs and two 47″ 3D monitors downstairs on either side of a large cinematic projector screen, so provided you get in, you’ll be pretty much guaranteed a decent view of the action.

It would be hard to write a list on sports bar in London, or the UK for that matter, and not mention a Walkabout venue. Sports are priority at these raucous pubs, which often attract an antipodean crowd. Football, cricket, rugby league, and rugby union are all covered as well as some venues that will show NFL, basketball, and other sports. Beer is cheap and you can expect a party atmosphere after and during some of the bigger games.
