Man City Wembley pubs: Full details for fans ahead of the FA Cup Final

After getting past Chelsea in the semi-final, Man City fans have a derby against cross-city rivals Manchester United to look forward to on 3rd June.

Since 2022, Brent Council have enforced a no-street-drinking zone on Olympic Way and the surrounding area for all events at Wembley, and local shops and off licences are also banned from selling alcohol on match days.

These fans have been to the iconic English stadium enough times in recent times, so much so that they now call it ‘Etihad South'. Therefore, they will be well aware that there are separate Man City Wembley pubs, and here we have all the info about those all-important pre-match drinks.

Man City Wembley pubs: Where can Man City fans drink pre-match?

Manchester City fans have been allocated the West side side of the stadium on this occasion.

The west side of Wembley is full of great pubs. Arguably the best and most well-known pub in the surrounding area of Wembley is the Green Man which is half a mile west of Wembley Stadium. That isn't the only option on that side of the stadium, though, with plenty of other places being perfectly good options if the Green Man reaches capacity.

The full list of pubs available on the west side of Wembley is as follows:

  • The Green Man, Dagmar Avenue HA9 8DF
  • Crystals (Sports Bar & Aqua Lounge) 1 Popin Building, Southway, HA9 0HB
  • The Arch, 324 Harrow Rd, Wembley , HA9 6LL
  • Station 31, 299-303 Harrow Rd, Wembley, HA9 6BD
  • The Liquor Station, 397A High Rd, Wembley, HA9 6AA
  • JJ Moons, 397 High Rd, Wembley, HA9 6AA
  • La Regina, St George's Hotel, 43-51 Wembley Hill Rd, Wembley, HA9 8AU
  • Black Sheep, 2 Olympic Way, Wembley Park, HA9 0GU
  • Sixty Six Bar & Grill, 3 South Way, Wembley, HA9 0JU
  • The Corner House, 313 Harrow Road,┬áHA9 6BA
  • White Horse, 4 Wembley Park Blvd, Wembley Park, Wembley HA9 0HP

Given the Green Man is the most popular pub on the west side of the stadium, fans are recommended to ring and book a table to avoid disappointment on the day.

Alternatives to Man City Wembley pubs

There will be separate Man City and Man Utd fan zones around Wembley on the day of the game. The Man City fan zone is located on the event pad on the west side of the stadium and is a great way to soak up the pre-match atmosphere, particularly if the weather holds up.

The fan zone will open at 11am and close 30 minutes before kick-off, although alcoholic drinks will stop being served an hour beforehand. A DJ will also occupy the space to keep fans entertained while they enjoy a bite to eat and a drink.

Supporters must be in possession of a valid match ticket to enter, and the Wembley Stadium bag policy also applies to the Fan Zones.

If you are staying in Manchester for the FA Cup Final, there is a Fan Zone at Freight Island on Baring Street in the city centre which will be showing the game.

Which other pubs can City fans enjoy before the FA Cup Final?

There are also a number of places to eat and drink at the nearby London Designer outlet. This venue is not allocated to a particular team and has a number of chain restaurants and bars that include Nando's, TGI Fridays, Pizza Express and Wagamama.

For anyone who arrives early enough, there are also some nearby tube stations that may be worth heading to.

One popular drinking destination on a direct line to Wembley is Baker Street. There are several pubs within walking distance from the tube station, including a Wetherspoons, meaning there are plenty of options if the pubs around the stadium get packed early on.

Inside the stadium

Wembley stadium is now completely cashless, meaning fans will need to make sure they have a card or contactless method of payment with them if they want to buy anything whilst inside.

Supporters will be able to take advantage of a new frictionless Tap Bar on level one at Wembley, allowing access to refreshments quicker and more conveniently. Fans will simply tap their card on entry, pick up what they have ordered and then walk away without the need to queue.

Man City fans may be repeat visitors to the stadium, but there are some recent additions to the food and drink offerings at Wembley.

These include TapHouse Social, Camden Town Brewery Bars and two new M&S Food stores, and can be found on the level two concourse.
