Where London - - Where Now -

TOM’S KITCHEN

Opened by Miche­lin-starred chef Tom Aikens, Tom’s Kitchen is a re­fined op­tion for the Games. Es­cape the crowds hud­dled around screens in busy pubs with an ex­clu­sive pri­vate view­ing of the Games at this much-loved Bri­tish restau­rant. Choose from branches in Chelsea, Ca­nary Wharf, Som­er­set House and St Katharine Docks, and a range of food and drink packages. The set menu in­cludes two glasses of house wine or lager plus eight sub­stan­tial canapés each for just £25 per per­son. All ma­jor events will be screened in the Ca­nary Wharf bar. Var­i­ous venues. www.tom­skitchen.co.uk

RILEYS SPORTS BAR

Pos­si­bly the ul­ti­mate sports bar in cen­tral Lon­don, Rileys boasts no less than 34 big screens and four gi­ant screens show­ing sport­ing events from around the world. If you fancy a bit more sport with your sport, you can also play pool or ping pong while you watch. Four bars (in­clud­ing a VIP bar), DJs and an Amer­i­can-style diner make it the ideal choice for any­one want­ing to make a day or night of their Olympic view­ing. 80 Hay­mar­ket, SW1Y 4TE. T: 020-7930 0393. www.rileys.co.uk

CAMINO BANKSIDE’S GIN GAR­DEN

Catch all the Olympic ac­tion while top­ping up your tan at this beau­ti­ful Span­ish-in­spired river­side ter­race hid­den on the South Bank. Mediter­ranean dé­cor and ter­ra­cotta tones sur­round the bar, and there are ta­pas-style nib­bles to keep you go­ing be­tween events. 5 Can­vey St, SE1 9AN. T: 020-3617 3169. www.camino.uk.com/gin-gar­den

SO­PHIE’S STEAK­HOUSE

This 220-seat West End bar and restau­rant is not your av­er­age steak­house – ex­pect a party at­mos­phere and prime cuts of na­tive breeds, butchered daily to cre­ate chef cuts such as Porter­house and T-bone. The 10oz Mar­ti­nis alone are worth a visit, but the large screen show­ing Olympic events seals the deal. Call ahead for de­tails. 29-31 Welling­ton St, WC2E 7DB. T: 020-7836 8836. www.so­phiessteak­house.co.uk ¾
