Village Hotel Portsmouth hits an Ace with Wimbledon pop-up bar

Village Hotel Portsmouth’s Pub & Grill has completely transformed into the All England Club as the tennis pros take to the court for Wimbledon’s final weekend until 14th July.

The hotel will run the two-week tennis themed pop-up throughout the tournament, bringing the quintessential deck chairs and Henman’s Hill from Wimbledon to Lakeshore Drive in Portsmouth. 

Guests can enjoy every match live on the hotel’s six giant screens and participate in fun activities including Wimbledon bingo and table tennis while sipping on special themed cocktails, a Serena Colada or Game, Triple Sec, Match anyone?

The event comes alongside the recent launch of the Afternoon Par-Tea, a new Saturday afternoon tea offering curated by Great British Bake Off winner and Village Hotel Club ambassador, Candice Brown. The new tea menu includes savoury treats, and show stopping desserts starting at £17.50pp.

Michael Horner, general manager of Village Hotel Portsmouth said:

“Wimbledon is one of the most important sporting events of the year in the UK and we’ve recreated the feeling of being at the match both inside and out for 2 weeks! The bingo cards invite guests to watch out for classic phrases and get a full house to win prizes from the bar! Let’s hope some of our British talent makes it through alongside some of the superstars on the line up this year!”

The Pub and Grill is one of 30 in the Village Hotel estate and one of the most advanced sports bars in the country with two 98" screens and four 85" screens showcasing live sport all day. Customers can order live from iPads on their tables so they don't need to join the queue at the bar, or through an app on their phones. With a huge number of tennis clubs in Hampshire, they're looking to create the very best environment for Wimbledon fans.
