Right in the hippest area of Exmouth Market is Café Kick, a little eatery popular with a jovial mix of students and tourists ready to settle in on mismatched chairs, savor Spanish cuisine, watch sports, and play lots and lots of foosball.

Naturally, as evidenced by the memorabilia and colorful pennant flags dangling from the ceiling and painted on the floors, football – the real kind – is king with the European regulars. The venue explodes with cheers of victory or howls of defeat during any televised match, whether it’s Manchester United versus Manchester City or Tonga versus Japan, and rugby matches get fair play as well.

The small kitchen in the back is in plain view, so tapas-loving Londoners can watch the chefs prepare grilled chorizo if the game isn’t on.

The café’s French Bonzini foosball tables, however, are the biggest draw, with their carved beech wood, cast-iron players, and World Cup cork balls attracting so many players that university lads make sure to call ahead and reserve them.

Throw in the Latin music and a laid-back international crowd, and Café Kick promises a field of fun, hands down.

Tip from Lucas:

This bar is all about foosball, and winners chill at the tables all night long. If the place is crowded and you want to play, the best bet is to sign up on the list and put yourself in line as a challenger. Then go ahead and show the other foosballer who’s boss.

  • Crowd

    Tapas lovers, students, bros, European football enthusiasts, and tourists, 20s to early 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    All kinds of Spanish, Latin, Brazilian, and South American music, heavy on the salsa. TV tuned to major sporting events. Three foosball tables and occasional foosball tournaments.

  • Food / Miscellaneous

    Mixture of Spanish, Portuguese, and Italian cuisine and tapas including manchego and chorizo sandwiches, cheese boards, Merguez sausage with harissa, and daily specials. Happy Hour daily 4–7pm.

  • Prices

    Tapas £2–£6, sandwiches £5–£7, buffet £13/person. Beer £3–£8, wine £4–£6/glass or £14–£46/bottle, cocktails £5–£7, champagne £6–£9/glass or £23–£55/bottle. Foosball £1/game.

  • What to Wear / Dress Code

    Casual: plain t-shirts, jeans, sweats, hoodies, sneakers.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go

  • Close By

    Bar Kick (127 Shoreditch High Street) is Café Kick’s newer and bigger sister venue. It has the same vibe, but offers more space, a small stage that hosts regular music and sketch shows, and a lot more foosball tables.
