PUMA YARD – CELEBRATING 2012 SUMMER OLYMPICS IN LONDON
Opened only a day after the official start of 2012 Summer Olympics in London and PUMA Yard is already becoming a must-visit venue. Not far from the Olympic Park, PUMA Yard is within Boiler House, part of the Old Truman Brewery at East London neighborhood of Shoreditch. The sprawling pop-up concept brings a little bit of Kingston, Jamaica, to the heart of London’s industrial past with hefty portions of jerk chickens, Red Stripe, Kingston Bowl, and Montego Bay Brew. If you’re on the quest memorabilia, the PUMA Quad is on site as well, quipped with the newest PUMA Summer Olympics gears for sale. Getting a few inspirational vibes from the Games? There are plenty ping-pong tables for you to sharpen your paddle skills, or you can try to beat the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, in the 20-meter Everyone Can Bolt Speed Test. When the athletes return to the Olympic Village at night, things really liven up at PUMA Yard instead with live music and a rotation of performances.Doors at PUMA Yard open everyday from Noon for the afternoon session and 7 pm for the evening session. While admission is absolutely free, a reservation ticket is still required to get in.
