Singapore Sports Bars
BQ Bar for multiple sports at the same time
With the ability to show multiple sports at the same time across several screens inside the bar, on the terrace, and along the side street, BQ is the true home of televised sport in Singapore! Team sports are the main draw, with evenings at the venue focused on football of all kinds, including rugby union (Super Rugby), rugby league (NRL) and Premier League. But drop down over lunch and you’ll be able to catch some tennis or golf as well!

Molly Malone’s Irish Pub – a favourite for watching rugby
It’s no surprise that Molly’s is probably best known as a place for watching rugby, considering the GM is a former professional Irish player. And the venue also serves as the clubhouse of local team The Wanderers! But you’ll also find screens in three different rooms downstairs, plus more upstairs (along with darts and a pool table). As one of the best sports bars in Singapore, it also offers a host of other sports on its screens – soccer, Gaelic football, Formula 1 and AFL (Aussie Rules) are just a few that regularly feature!
