Football fever is at a high right now as we get closer to the final. While you might have that one friend’s house that everyone is going to, you might maybe be also wondering if there’s a restaurant you could go to watch the world cup screenings in Lahore. Fortunately, the past decade has seen match screenings at cafes and restaurants become popular. Makes sense right? You need to be well fed while supporting your teams during intense, nail-biting matches 😉
So if you’re looking for FIFA World Cup screenings in Lahore, check some of these places out:
Illy Cafe, known otherwise for its coffee also has a variety of food selections to choose from. For a FIFA lover, you need to know that you can keep your eyes more on the screen than on your food. And Illy Cafe prepares the easiest food for you to eat, not to forget, it’s tasty. They’re also offering a 15% discount on your entire bill if you tag two friends and get them to like Illy Cafe’s page on Instagram so GET TAGGING FRIENDS.
La Arena Lounge
La Arena Lounge prides itself as Pakistan’s first sports cafe. They are the definition of sports and food put together. So it’s only natural that out of many FIFA World Cup screenings in Lahore, this one’s going to be an absolute treat. La Arena Lounge has a variety of items on their menu, mostly fast food, which is the most convenient type for game night!
If getting yourself a berry smoothie and a cold sandwich is your idea of watching a football match, Gloria Jean’s is the answer! Flocks of people run to Gloria Jean’s to watch any and all kind of matches because it doesn’t have to cost much to sit there and watch a game.

Pizza is the ultimate game food around the world so why not seek a place that offers both football and pizza? Personally speaking, my FIFA 2010 final was spent with my cousins eating a Gino’s Supreme Deluxe pizza and it hit the spot. So a football match on a big screen along with pizza is greater and totally #matchwatchinggoals.
Food Bazaar is a Pakistani, desi food restaurant located in Gaddafi Stadium. Yes, the temperature may not be conducive to this but watching a match open air with tikka kebab is a different kind of experience, especially when the food is prepared super hot and paired with the beautiful, post-rain weather nowadays and a giant screen showing the match.
Napoli is right next to Gloria Jean’s in Phase 5, DHA. It offers a delicious menu containing various continental, Thai, Chinese, and fast food options (basically everything lol). It’s also very convenient for when you’ve got to take bae out for dinner but also don’t wanna miss a match! (thank me later)
Timmy’s Johar Town
Timmy’s is a pretty decent fast-food joint and most people reading this would approve how crisp and satisfying their curly fries are. Underrated and not often talked about, their burgers, fried chicken, and pizzas are also decently filling and tasty. They also are pretty darn economical so there’s that too in case you’re having a financial crisis nowadays!
Urban Kitchen serves up good, comfort food from around the world. Be it their poutine fries or butter chicken, these dishes will be the perfect companions for the rollercoaster ride that the coming matches are going to be.
Is there a restaurant or cafe we missed in this that you think is worthy of being included? Let us know in the comments.
