Whilst we may not be American and we may know that a football is actually round and not a brown rugby ball rip-off, we do love any excuse for a party and they don’t come much bigger than the Super Bowl. Yes Sunday 13th February is game day; it’s Rams vs Bengals; Los Angeles vs Cincinnati: Dr Dre, Eminem, Mary J Blige, Kendrick Lamar AND Snopp Dogg vs half-time. So whether you’re a big football fan, in it for the wings or you just really want to stay up late on a school night, we’ve got the best places to watch Super Bowl 56 right here in London.
Greenwood will be showing the big game across all their huge HD screens in the main bar downstairs plus more in the premium sports lounge upstairs. That’s a lot of coverage. They’re keeping the action going all night long with classic American grub and lots of beer, and there are a range of ticket types from a standing ticket right up to guaranteed seats in view of the screens with bottomless wings.
