New concept sports bar arrives at Thistle City Barbican Hotel

03 July 2018

As World Cup action reaches fever pitch and the Wimbledon final is just days away, Thistle Hotels has unveiled its new concept sports bar at Thistle City Barbican Hotel.

With plans to roll out at Thistle Trafalgar Square and Thistle Heathrow later this year, the RE:PLAY Bar has been created to give sports fans the perfect destination to sit back and relax, and watch all the action.

Focussing on great value, good food and the perfect tipple, RE:PLAY has been designed with you in mind, to make you feel right at home with our down to earth and friendly service.

To tantalise your taste buds, the chefs at Thistle have created a modern menu, perfect for sharing, including baskets of chicken wings with spicy garlic and paprika glaze, stacked pulled brisket and burnt beef ends with sweet gherkins, and a vegan-friendly falafel and spinach burger with beetroot and rosemary houmous. Sweet options include a retro banana split and a sticky toffee cheesecake.

RE:PLAY Bar also offers a wide selection of drinks to enjoy as you watch the match, including a signature gin menu, bottled IPA’s, draft lagers and ciders. Alongside a range of delicious cocktails, including Passionfruit Martini, Bellini Rossini and Sicilian Southside.

Whether you want to catch the World Cup, Wimbledon or the Open, the 10 big screens at RE:PLAY Bar will ensure you never miss a moment of the game. Pop in for a quick pit stop and check the score, or grab a booth with a private screen*** with a group of mates and enjoy great food and drink.

From now until 15th July, unbeatable deals will be on offer including six bottles of beer for £20* and two baskets of chicken wings for £10**.

RE:PLAY Bar at Thistle Hotel City Barbican opened on 18th June 2018, and is open every day 7am till midnight – so you can catch this year’s unmissable World Cup Series now.
