Watching sports on-screen is always brilliant fun in a crowd, so you know it makes sense: if you can’t actually be there, be here!
‘Keep it up’ until the early hours
A huge range of truly great bar food is available through the night, every night, until 4am.
The bar is open until 6am too – look out for offers on drinks from our outstanding cocktails to crowd-pleasing Corona.
And our buzzing casino is on hand 12pm – 6am in case you fancy some gaming action either side of the sport.
And on Fridays, you can enjoy a Live DJ and even more drinks offers. Check out or What’s on page for all the details.
You don’t get all that in your average sports bar!
Screens and glamour
We have 11 screens dedicated to sports across our venue in the historic Great Northern warehouse. That means we can meet most customer requests to show a particular game or event.
But it’s in our lavish private events suite where you really feel the thrill of watching the big-ticket event in real time with fellow fans. Come and experience our big screen for yourself.
