The Fringe, Swan Wharf

For those inclined to watch the London Olympics live in style, The Fringe is a pop-up venue and bar in a large converted Victorian warehouse spitting distance from the Victoria Park entrance to the Village. With capacity for 1,000, the club offers music with DJs such as Norman Jay, large screens, Michelin-starred food and drinks for the duration of the Games.

The place is decorated in a suitable flash style, with Philippe Stark chandeliers overhead and Tim Flach photos on the walls. Daily membership costs up to £150 (although less exclusive entry starts at £35 for the day) and includes three drinks, plus entry to the club and bars overlooking the stadium. A £40 evening pass includes access to the club, courtyard and bars. Six week membership is available for those feeling the need to savour every moment of the Olympics live (and those with healthy wallets).
