Where can I watch election coverage in Cambridge?

I'm a US person currently living in the UK, specifically Cambridge, and this is the first election I've been present for. I like to watch election coverage on TV in a pub with a bunch of left-leaning politically-clued-in people. I've sampled a lot of Cambridge pubs and I've noticed that among their many charms is an absence of televisions. Is there a place where I can watch election coverage over a pint (or several)? The closer to the city centre the better, but I'm not picky.

If by "election coverage" you mean the results, don't forget that polls close at 10pm. A couple of constituencies will announce before last orders, but the results that actually matter won't start coming in until the early morning.

I'm not saying there's nowhere to do this, but the pubs that have TVs mostly won't have left leaning politically clued in people in them, and the TV will not be showing election coverage.

Find the local labour club?

Yeah, election night social stuff is usually house parties, not pub gatherings. Perhaps there are some Cambridge MeFites who'll see this and put out an invitation?

Since this really isn't a thing, I settled for drinking alone and obsessively refreshing the election thread over on the blue. Good night, MetaFilter.
