Our pick of the best football World Cup finale screening parties in Kochi
The ultimate showdown of the planet’s most-watched sporting event is almost here. There’s just one question on everyone's lips: where are you watching the final on July 15? Some of our favourite restobars across the town have promised quite a spread.
This property does have a good selection of wine and beer. However, if you’re not a heavy drinker yet enjoy sumptuous fare then head to Roma. Regardless of whether you’re in the mood for BBQ pork ribs or Mexican-style grilled chicken, this Holiday Inn outlet promises a big screen and an even bigger spread.
Watch the Les Bleus on what is touted to be one of the biggest LED screens showcasing the FIFA World Cup finale in Kerala. If you’re not impressed by that or Le Meridien’s wide selection of game-time delicacies including their killer sliders, then maybe you’ll enjoy the tunes of artiste Antonio during the sundowner gig.
Vasco da Gama Bar
Regardless of whether you’re in the mood for unlimited liquor or beer, this Casino Hotel hotspot is the place to be. The upmarket restobar with its wood panels and glass facades has the ideal ambience for a private screening. While you’re there, don’t forget to try their cocktail samosas and chicken katti rolls.
Ever watched a game of football in a room lined with guns? Head to Brunton Boatyard as their outlet (lined with defunct post-Colonial weapons) boasts a special menu featuring signatures from each previous World Cup winning nations. England fan? Ask for fish and chips, or better yet, try their tea-smoked lamb chops.
