Whereas ‘babyfoot’ is commonplace in bars on the continent it is rare to find one table let alone five or six underneath one roof in London. Yet, that is what we have with Bar Kick! Since opening in 2001, Bar Kick has been constantly adapting and expanding from a bar with French football tables to a vibrant bar with a diverse menu, which offers basement shows with comedians and shows live football (including all 3D matches) with French football tables.
The name may fail to inspire enthusiasm but once inside you’ll become as excitable as Ashley Cole in a firing range! There is a wide range of drinks coming from all over the world ensuring the bar has become a haven for those who have descended from South America and Europe. An adventurous food menu too means that Bar Kick is not just a place to settle some scores over a game of table football.
The walls are full of flags donated by its adoring customers retaining an international feel that is reflected throughout what the bar has to offer. Although Bar Kick may not be as cheap as similar bars of its nature in Europe it must be remembered that this is an establishment like no other and simply everyone can enjoy!
