    Restaurants and watering holes ensure you don’t miss any of the action from down under, with plenty of perks too

    If you thought that nothing beats catching the World Cup with friends at home, think again! There are special menus, cocktails, and large projection screens (try hotel Ramada in Egmore) to catch all the action, thanks to pubs and restaurants across town. So if you can’t join the crowds heading to Australia, head to the nearest hotspot and cheer away.
