2014 is in full swing, and that’s a new year for all sorts of different sports. So far we’ve done the best places to watch football in Singapore, and where to watch rugby. But what about tennis, golf, American football and more? Get reading for the best places to watch sport in general here in Singapore.
Boomerang Bistro & Bar
60 Robertson Quay, #01-15 The Quayside | 6738 1077
Shows all sports; cricket, AFL, NRL, football, tennis, rugby, Formula One, even horse racing.
With a prime location along the Singapore river, it is a great spot to enjoy the match, as well as enjoying one or six beers. Not that we encourage that sort of behaviour here at EX! (Just kidding, we really, really do.)
Happy Hours: 5pm to 8pm (Mon to Fri) and 2pm to 8pm (Sun)
Specials: Wednesday night; enjoy a burger and beer (Tiger or Heineken) for only $22, from 5pm to10pm
3E River Valley Rd, Singapore 179024 | 6339 5707
Known as ‘the sports bar’, the Bungy Bar is the perfect place to spend a Saturday night watching the footy with your mates. It’s right on Clarke Quay as well, so you can head off to wherever you fancy after the game has finished and you’ve had a few beers to hydrate you for the night ahead. Perhaps you should end up doing the GMAX vertical bungy, just a stone’s throw away.
Specials: $9 pints until 9pm
28 Boat Quay Singapore 049818 | 6538 3029
Cricket, tennis, football, rugby and more – Harry’s bar shows every sport you want to watch. It’s even got a handy calendar of what’s on. There’s also Harry’s bars all over the island (nearly as common as Starbucks, see), so there’s no excuse not to be able to enjoy the footy on a Saturday arvo/ night/ Sunday morning.
Happy Hours: 11am to 9pm, Crazy Hour: 5pm to 7pm (crazy cheap prices).
Specials: Enjoy Carlsberg at $10 per pint with every mini fish & chips or mini burgers purchased during the Barclays Premier League weekends.
111 Somerset Road, #01-02 TripleOne Somerset, Singapore, 238164 | 6735 0400
Not just known for great food and beer, Muddy Murphy’s also utilises six big screens to catch all live sports including football, rugby, F1 and even Gaelic football/hurling. Packed with expats, it’s a great place to have a few drinks and you won’t be frowned upon for being lively – it’s an Irish pub!
Happy Hours: 11:30am to 7:30pm daily
Specials: Five Tiger Radlers for $40
So where to after the game? Why not try the no frills Ah Sam Cold Drink Stall. Here’s what to expect.
