The FringeA pop up private members' club in a former Victorian stable in Swan Wharf, a 100-metre walk from the Olympic Park, The Fringe is the place to watch the Olympics in style with cocktail in hand. They're enlisting DJs like Norman Jay to take the party from day to night, with Philippe Stark chandeliers overhead and Tim Flach photos on the walls; this is a sophisticated place to enjoy the Olympics within javelin throwing distance of the Olympic Stadium. You can opt to arrive - and depart - in style, too, with private boats laid on to pick you up from central London and take you to The Fringe. If you really want to push the boat out you can hire the penthouse for a cool £50,000 a day, all food and drink included. But a much more reasonable £40 buys you night membership, from 7pm to 2am, with access to 5 bars, DJs and an outside courtyard with a video screen showing all of the Olympic action. Day membership, at £150, includes East London style street food, champagne and cocktails while watching the Olympics on big screens from the building overlooking the Olympic Stadium. Tickets are on sale now and the venue opens a week before the Opening Ceremony on 20th July remaining open until 9th September 2012.
