Football, food, beer – if Carlsberg did combinations…
As England gear up to take on Germany in the Euro 2020 round-of-sixteen this evening (June 29), it’s safe to say the nation is suitably gripped by the football. Who knows? (Whisper it but) Come mid-July England could have their hands on their first piece of major silverware since 1966.
And, whatever the outcome is, Londoners will have an all-new space to combine their love of the city’s social buzz with their fiery passion for the beautiful game.
A football-based social and dining entertainment experience, which is the first of its kind in the UK, is landing in the capital on July 29. TOCA Social will set the stage for a three-pronged attack of gourmet food, drinks and shooting footballs at the famous O2 arena. That’s a perfect hat-trick if I ever heard of one.
Up to 12 players will be able to take part in their own personal booths for plenty of immersive football games, which is sure to kick up a storm. You’ll be treated to innovative ball-tracking delivery and tracking technology to be set up with a peach of a game experience for all ages.
Alex Harman, President of TOCA Social, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be opening the UK’s first TOCA Social venue at The O2 in London at a time when friends and family are looking forward to a summer of having fun and making memories again.
“We created TOCA Social to make this nation’s favourite sport inclusive to all and what better opportunity to test out your skills than after being inspired by the Euros. TOCA Social fuses the worlds of football, food, drinks and live music to create a memorable experience that truly appeals to everyone – not just football fans.”
And, if that wasn’t enough, guests will get to enjoy food from Michelin trained chef, Ross Clarke, with a modern Americana menu with twists. Expect the likes of Nashville hot chicken sandwiches and Ahi tuna poke bowls, topped with their dessert room of “Willy Wonka” inspired concoctions. Plus, you’ll get to boogie along to some tunes from their DJ booth while sipping on one of their unique cocktails.
If you think that sounds as good as a ball hurtling into the back of the net, then you can book a spot at TOCA Social now.
