Love rugby? Looking for the ideal place to follow the progress of this year’s gripping Six Nations Championship matches? The Loft on Quay Street is fast-becoming the leading one-stop-shop for sports fans in Manchester.
This is the home of the Jameson Club House, where you can watch every single game from the tournament on a huge screen, in the company of dozens of like-minded rugby union fans from England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Wales and beyond.
You can expect an upbeat friendly atmosphere in this great venue, packed full of fans of this always-entertaining international competition.
Even better, the in-house Jameson Club House bar, with its specially-curated drinks menu will keep you going throughout. That’s right, no more staring sadly into the fridge at a couple of cans of cheap lager – here you can treat the Six Nations with the respect it deserves thanks to their huge range of quality drinks.
And, of course, you can buy those all-important snacks at the bar to keep your energy up in readiness for the celebrations – or commiserations.
And when half-time comes around there’s no need to sit twiddling your thumbs. Instead, you can head to the Jameson Retro Gaming Station to compete in something (almost) as intense as the onscreen action.
Here you’ll find air hockey, table football and even an old-school Nintendo 64 packed with classic games. You might not be able to match up to the physical heft of this year’s rugby sports stars but here’s where you can go all out to get bragging rights over your pals – even if your team gets a hammering.
Tickets for these match day events are completely free – just sign up and they give you free entry to the event, plus a bonus drink of Jameson, ginger ale and lime to get you in the sporting mood.
These tickets are available for each big weekend game day throughout February and March, running through until the final on Saturday 14th March.
The event starts an hour before each game (1pm on Saturdays, 2pm on Sundays) and runs through until 8pm on Saturdays and 6pm on Sundays – but remember, the fun begins at 12pm for that big final match. Make sure you and your mates head over in good time and bag yourselves a seat with a view.
As for the bar itself, The Loft is making a name for itself as the city’s go-to meeting spot for events. And this beautiful space is based in the heart of Manchester, so don’t take second best when it comes to the biggest rugby event of the year.
If you’re looking for the hottest spot in the city for you and your mates to enjoy the Six Nations 2020, look no further than the Jameson Club House, where the atmosphere – unlike your team – can’t be beat.
