The Rugby World Cup is in full swing, and no matter which nation you support, there’s no way we’re staying at home to catch the action. DesignMyNight have rounded up all the best spots for cheering on your team in Japan, including rooftops, a beach pop-up and a Victorian music hall-turned-club in Clapham. There’s even an Irish pub with insane bites, capable of comforting even the sorest of losers (trust us when we say the curry chip poutine is a must)…

Armed with a giant 24ft screen, The Grand is the best way to guarantee you don’t miss a single glorious (or gory) minute of the match. Celebrate with your fellow supporters on the dancefloor of Clapham’s hottest club or cheer for your team from the balcony, while munching pies and breakfast rolls. They’ve also scored a try with a huge beer supply and there’s a downpour of confetti to make the win feel even sweeter.

Get cosy with fellow fans in London’s smallest Irish pub, Homeboy -an Islington gem brimming with cracking grub and banging cocktails. Dishes that will definitely distract you from the game include a Tayto crisp sandwich and an almighty fried chicken fillet roll. And as the official title-holder of ‘Best Cocktail Bar in North London’, this joint has drinks that are pure gold, like the epic Whiskey Smash and the coffee-heavy Bump and Grind.

Take to the streets of Edinburgh and scout out The Three Sisters’ gigantic famous projector - we have a feeling it won’t be too hard to find. Set in a beer garden, sports screenings are always a rowdy affair thanks to plenty of local beer and the knowledge that good street food is never far away. Fuel your chanting with the likes of huge pizzas, burgers and cheesy chips - all delicious enough to make game day a roaring success no matter what the outcome of the match.

As one of London’s most-loved rooftops, Skylight is throwing a series of mega viewings that rugby-lovers and brunch fans won’t be able to resist. Dig into street food-style plates including a DIY brunch burger and take a trip or two to the bar for jugs of bloody Mary’s. And don’t worry about the clouds raining on your parade; there are screens indoors and up top for you to keep up with the action whatever the weather.

If you’re looking for an action-packed day of sports that isn’t just about watching it on TV, Dive NQ in Manchester’s Northern Quarter is the place with the whole package. Aside from screens playing the games in glorious HD, there’s also a whole host of sushi to feast on from their Asian street food-inspired menu, and beer pong if you feel like flexing your competitive spirit.

Super stylish bar The Heathcote and Star isn’t just showing all the major games live on the big screen; they’ve also got a breakfast bap menu that’s sure to make up for the early rise. As well as a veggie option, hungry supporters can treat themselves to a triple-cooked bacon, cheese, egg and hash brown bap, washed down with a boozy beverage, all of which is included in the unreal £8 ticket price.

10 Feet Tall are subbing out their usual live music acts for this special sporting occasion and throwing in some one-off drinks deals while they’re at it. The Cardiff city centre spot is bringing all the energy from Japan with staff just as passionate about the outcome as you; grab a chair in one of their circus-inspired rooms and work your way through pints and tapas bites.

If you’re in the mood for a more civilised Rugby World Cup screening, Serata Hall’s got you covered. Rock up for free and catch any of the big games live from Japan, with authentic Italian dishes in support. Choose from homemade pasta plates or coal-fired pizzas including the Vegan Viking with cashew cheese and pistachio pesto. And what communal sports screening would be complete without a sharing cocktail? We recommend the blueberry and sage gin punch.

When it comes to a full-on game day celebration, Brixton Jamm’s beach breakfast is the real deal. For £16 you’ll be taken care of with a tasty breakfast dish and a pint to kick off the proceedings. The games are shown on a massive LED screen outside - though don’t worry, this winter beach will be covered and heated to combat whatever the weather may throw at you.

Sports bar, Greenwood is a no-brainer for fans who want the ultimate viewing experience and this year’s Rugby World Cup is no different. Stocked with international beers and a selection of delicious breakfast specials, you’ll be sorted in the food and drinks department. The high quality screens and sound system makes for an electric atmosphere to rival the stadium, so no need to feel sour about being thousands of miles away from the actual game.
