Where to Enjoy Rio 2016 in London

Four years ago I was working for the retail team in the London Olympics and I really can’t believe how quickly time has passed. The Olympics has moved onto Rio and starts this Friday but you don’t have to leave the city to catch a glimpse of the action…

Pop Fields, Brixton 

Pop Fields is the new hub for watching sports and with one of the biggest screens in South London, it’s clearly the one of the best places in town to watch all that sporting action. It also comes with a side of top-knotch street food by Made of Dough, Baba G’s and Mama’s Jerk.

CopaCapanaBeach, SouthBank 

Let CopaCabana bring Rio to you – they’ve recreated Rio’s most famous beach with 85 tonnes of sand on London’s South Bank. And because no sporting event is complete without food, they’ll be serving up some of their best-selling Spicy Malaguete Chicken and Sweet Potato Fries. Pass us a Caipirinha!

Beach East, Stratford

Catch the coverage in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park with Beach East. You’ll find a Rio-themed celebration with fun fair rides, two paddling pools, and fine, white sand (and families galore) – but don’t worry, they have two beach bars you keep your refreshed.

BoxPark, Shoreditch

Grab yourself a deckchair and enjoy this open air screen by Shoreditch High Street station. BoxPark also have a variety of food and drink shops to help your refuel. Grab yourself some souvlaki from The Athenian and reminisce about the first ever Olympics in ancient Greece.
