Places to watch Sweden


Places to watch Sweden


The affluent areas of Richmond, Kensington and Chelsea are home to a large number of Swedish ex-pats, who number almost 10,000 in London. On the field, Sweden represent something of a thorn in England's side. Before the 1-0 friendly win last November, the Three Lions had failed to beat Sweden for 43 years. That run included draws at successive World Cups in 2002 and 2006 and a painful 2-1 defeat for Graham Taylor's Euro '92 side. Spearheaded by enigmatic striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the 2012 Swedes will be a tough side to put away – and will push England and France all the way in Group D.

Harcourt Arms

Tel: 020 7723 6634

32 Harcourt Street, Marylebone, London, W1H 4HX

Tube: Marylebone Station , Edgware Road Station


This friendly Victorian pub, discreetly positioned on a sleepy street near Edgware Road, has forged strong links with the Swedish community, particulalry as it is located opposite the Swedish Church. All Swedish football fixtures are shown at the Harcourt, which also screens Swedish internationals and ice-hockey matches. The Swedish-run pub will show all Euro 2012 games on several screens but will focus heavily upon Sweden – with the clash against England already sold out. For just £6 you'll get access to the bar and a free drink as you watch Erik Hamren's side battle it out with the other teams in Group D - France and hosts Ukraine. The Swedish connection means the pub serves a decent dish of meatballs along with the delectable Kopparberg pear cider. There's a charming beer garden which makes the Harcourt a great choice for a lazy afternoon or evening of summer sport and there's even a Swedish Salong - a corner decorated with Swedish pictures and capable of hosting around 10 people.


Nordic Bar

Tel: 020 7631 3174

25 Newman Street, Fitzrovia, London, W1T 1PJ

Tube: Goodge Street Station , Tottenham Court Road Station


Another suggestion for Sweden's group games is Fitzrovia's Nordic Bar, a shabby-chic basement drinking den with a penchant for all things Viking. Although Nordic  no longer serves the ferociously strong Red Erik beer on tap, there is a selection of traditional Scandinavian tipples, including a range of very drinkable fruit brews, and one shot (amongst many others) called the Danish Bacon Surprise. Talking of bacon, the kitchen serves up traditional fare from Sweden's neighbours Denmark, including crayfish tails, meatballs and deep-friend Jarlsberg with lingonberry jam.


Zoo Bar

Tel: 020 7839 4188

13-17 Bear Street, Soho, London, WC2H 7AQ

Tube: Leicester Square Station , Piccadilly Circus Station, Covent Garden Station, Charing Cross Station


All Scandinavians living and working in London can follow their nation's Euro 2012 games live at the West End's Zoo Bar. Located on a little side road between Leicester Square and Charing Cross Road, Zoo Bar is a no-frills bar with a basement dancefloor and numerous plasma screens and one huge projector screen – making it an ideal venue to watch Denmark and Sweden games. There is a £2 entrance fee but it does include your first beer so there will be Scandi smiles aplenty. To secure a place email



Tel: 020 7373 6368

138 Fulham Road, Chelsea, London, SW10 9PY

Tube: Gloucester Road Station


Head to Fulham's local Scandi bar Kosmopol for all of Sweden's games in Euro 2012. The chic and modern lounge-style boutique venue is decidedly Swedish – but it's showing Scandinavian solidarity by screening all of Denmark's matches too. With a capacity of 70 downstairs and 50 on entry level, Kosmopol is not the biggest of places – so make sure you arrive early to avoid disappointment.


The Pipeline

Tel: 020 7377 6860

94 Middlesex Street, City, London, E1 7DA

Tube: Aldgate Station , Aldgate East Underground Station, Aldgate East Station, Liverpool Street Station


Owned by 'the happiest Swede in London', The Pipeline has strong Nordic influences and, as such, will be a hotbed for Swedish football fans during Euro 2012. A stones throw away from Liverpool Street station, The Pipeline has a heavy rock'n'roll theme but caters for all types of visitor and football fans are more than welcome to enjoy Sweden's games during the tournament, as well as some traditional Scandinavian food from the menu.
