The Guinness Six Nations is back, and London is ready.
We’ve been counting down until the end of January, and not only because it’s seemingly lasted forever but, more importantly, because it marks the start of the Guinness Six Nations. The games might be taking place all over Europe, but the best place to watch them if you didn’t get a ticket to the stadium is in the centre of London: Flat Iron Square.
The London Bridge hub is a top spot for food, drinks and culture throughout the year and the six-week Guinness takeover is no exception. Inside the Guinness Village you’ll find 10 different screens showing all of the games. There’ll also be a host of rugby legends to rub shoulders with, Guinness Stout and Hop House 13 lager on tap and giveaways including match tickets to be won throughout. So, in short, if you’re a rugby fan or just fancy getting a taste of the action, Flat Iron Square is the place to be.
In the heart of the Guinness Village you can wander into the Guinness Clubhouse. There’ll be a range of events and the opportunity to rub shoulders with some of the top dogs in the rugby world. We’re talking live podcasts with Andy Goode and Jim Hamilton, or sitting shoulder to shoulder with Will Greenwood while he commentates live on the action.
If you’re looking to get together with a big group and don’t fancy jostling around for a seat with a good view, you can hire out one of Flat Iron Square’s makeshift pubs, inspired by the Six Nations. You might recognise the names The Greenwood Tavern, Jim’s Bar, Shanklin Inn and O’Driscoll Arms, and they’re all available by the day for up to 16 people. Make yourself comfy with a Guinness Stout and your very own ‘pub landlord’ on hand while watching the games on your own screen.
And don’t think you’ll be going hungry. There’ll be a selection of Flat Iron Square’s top food vendors inside the village, so you can feast upon everything from pizza, to Mexican, ramen and fried chicken. If you’d rather stick with the theme, you’ll also find some Guinness-inspired dishes to keep you full. And, of course, you can pair all your pickings with a pint of Guinness Stout or Hop House 13 lager.
More information will be released over the coming weeks, so keep an eye on the website for a full list of events taking place in the Guinness Village.

Tickets to all Clubhouse events with our Guinness legends are priced separately.
