Irish House: London OlympicsIreland initially struggled to secure a venue to house their Olympic party, with early hopes being pinned on Camden's Roundhouse. But the luck of the Irish was with them and they managed to snare a central venue in The Big Chill House, just a stone's throw from King's Cross St Pancras (and its Javelin train to the Olympic Park). The Big Chill is certainly one of the more lively venues chosen by a nation's committee, but this is an Irish celebration, and the loud and busy music bar seems to fit the bill. The Big Chill organisers have a long track record of producing great live music events and festivals. Entertainment at Irish House will come in the form of large screens (broadcasting until 2am), traditional Irish music and nightly secret performances from musicians, actors and comedians. Other possibilities include a plan to deck out the bar in the style of Father Ted character, Mrs Doyle's living room. The Irish House will also be an out-of-competition base for Irish athletes and their families. With a warm and welcoming attitude at the forefront, the Irish Olympic House promises to be a place where everyone can visit and enjoy a little easy-going Irish hospitality, with plenty of Guinness and a BBQ on the sunny south facing roof terrace.

 

About The Big Chill House

From the outside, The Big Chill House building looks spectacular, a floodlit white townhouse that puts the grimy environs of King's Cross to shame. The interior is equally shiny, with three floors of New York-ish glamour - lots of cosy nooks, low benches and a cream and grey colour scheme. More about The Big Chill House
