This enormous bar, fashioned like a wine cellar, is mainly filled with City boys and girls as you might expect – it’s near Bank station. It is offering coverage of the Paralympic Games on both large and small screens every weekday, though cannot guarantee sound in the evenings. Parties bigger than ten are advised to book.

It’s not the obvious choice, but this Indian-themed venue (formerly Conran’s Meza) is a nice alternative for watching the Games in Soho. Watch athletes compete on four screens while sipping cocktails and tucking into Indian food. Tables can be booked and the restaurant also takes private bookings with a screen. Read Anthologist reivew

Frustrated to be watching the Games indoors? Head to this spacious City bar decorated with flowers, trees and leaf-patterned furniture, and pretend you’re watching the action outside. Three screens; groups should book. Read Folly review

Don’t let yourself get distracted by the great views of the Shard at this vast riverside bar. During the Games, the Oyster Shed will show Paralympic coverage, though cannot guarantee sound and will not stay open beyond 11.00pm. Bookings are taken, but there’s so much standing space it might not be necessary. Read Oyster Shed review

The start of the football season means this venue's loyalties will be torn during the Paralympic Games. They're promising to show as much coverage of the Games as possible, but football will be their main priority. Read Café Kick review
Sister to Clerkenwell's Café Kick, good-natured Bar Kick is more expansive than its sibling. Most obviously it's spread over two floors and will be providing full coverage of the Paralympics on their numerous screens. Read Bar Kick review
