The food and drink served at football stadiums – well, British ones at least – wasn’t always of the highest quality. In fact, if you were after something other than burgers, chips or a plastic beaker of scalding hot tea you’d quite often leave disappointed. Happily, the culinary experience of stadium dining has changed dramatically since those days. The superb V’ammos Restaurant located above  the stands of the Athens club Olympiacos looks to be a case in point…

Designed by Greek studio LM Architects, the wave-like formation of the ceiling was inspired by the stadium’s near coastal location. The startlingly original design for the bar features around 300 cooking pots organised in a line beneath a wooden panel. Described by the designers as an art installation it certainly gives diners something to discuss other than the match!

And if all that talk of football has brought on a thirst, why not enjoy a mug of tea from this footie inspired mug available from Dotmasion!
