Review: Cool sports hangout scores big on the food front, too
  • 2

Time Out Says

There are no fewer than 38 reasons for Velocity’s rapid rise in popularity in the capital’s nightlife scene.

That’s the number of TV screens beaming sporting action from all corners of the globe that fill pretty much every spare inch of wall space here.

From the moment we walk through the doors of this cool and vibrant spot, we can tell this is a great place to catch some sport – and the excellent drink deals go down a treat, too.

But what about if you fancy a bite to eat while you watch the on-field drama unfold?

Studying the menu (when our eyes weren’t wandering over to one of the TVs) we are encouraged by the extensive collection of bar bites and heartier meals on offer.

The Vietnamese lobster spring rolls are a light, fresh alternative to your usual pub grub, while the chicken wings have a strong game, with seven varieties of the trusty bar staple on offer. The Velocity Burger is a winner, too. A juicy wagyu beef patty is topped with mushrooms and smothered in melt-in-your mouth cheese and is more than a match for our appetite.

If you are looking for a good feed with the football, Velocity scores top marks.

The bottom line

Good quality grub while you catch a match.
