The best sports bars in Singapore

There’s no need to catch a flight – these local sports bars have all the sporting action covered

By Graham Turner

We're all for chilling at home and enjoying respectable, sedate appreciation of various sports including cricket, mixed martial arts and, of course, the beautiful game of football. But there’s nothing quite as exhilarating as some good old-fashioned tribalism – being surrounded by your fellow and rival countrymen – enhancing the atmosphere and making even the dullest game a spectacle. Here are our picks of the best bars in Singapore that are screening the games live.

RECOMMENDED: The best pubs in Singapore and the best bars in Singapore


Restaurants City Hall

This waterside bar has a winning combination of food, drinks, and action. After fuelling up on hearty grub, soak in the electric atmosphere with fellow fans watching a screening of the big game – the place screens a variety of sports from rugby to the English Premier League. If the adrenaline gets too intense, there’s an entertainment area with dartboards and beer pong tables you can visit to put that energy to good use.

The Penny Black

Bars and pubs Pubs Raffles Place

Do you like your sports with a healthy dose of Englishness? Then The Penny Black at Boat Quay is your best bet. Obviously, being as Brit-tastic as it is, expect a heavy England-supporting contingent and a lively atmosphere – maybe just don’t cheer if England loses and expect a fair dose of colourful language if that happens.


Bar Bar Black Sheep


Perennially packed, Bar Bar Black Sheep is perfect if you’re looking to have a drink and take in the game with fellow die-hards. Expect noise, cheering and booing in hefty abundance. It’s showing a rotation of sports as well – we suggest hitting up its Cluny Court outlet as it’s bigger and has a cracking outdoor area for running around in circles with your finger in the air when your favourite team wins.

Café Football

Bars and pubs Sports bars Toa Payoh

Given the name of this resto-bar – and the fact that it’s part-owned by football legends Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville – it would be a bit odd if they weren’t showing the footy. Thankfully, they are. Most of the games are screened live with updated schedules posted on its Facebook page regularly. Plus there’s a bevvy of hearty grub on the go to fuel the fandom too.


Atmosphere Bistro & Bar

Bars and pubs Sports bars Marine Parade

Enjoy some good eats with your mates at this East Coast Park spot that’s showing a plethora of the games. And best of all? If your team’s taking an absolute battering, you can avert your eyes and take in the scenic views and pretend it’s not happening. Genius. Again, keep an eye on its social media pages for match details.  

Harry's @ Boat Quay

Clubs Raffles Place

Founded in 1992, Harry's is always a solid choice for catching a game or two. With 21 bars across the island, you won't have to go far to catch a screening. Snack up with laksa popcorn chicken or go big with a wings platter and grab a few Budweiser bottles as you catch the latest in the sporting world.


Boomarang Bistro & Bar

Restaurants Australian Raffles Place

No, that’s not a typo. Boomarang is the correct way to spell the name of this relaxed, family-friendly riverside hang out featuring open-air seating, picnic-style wooden tables and low-back chairs. Australian haunt Boomarang Bistro & Bar begs to be a beer-stained watering hole, with its open-air seating, picnic-style wooden tables and low-back chairs that you can catch some live screening action from.

Brewerkz @ Indoor Stadium

Restaurants European Kallang

At the Singapore Indoor Stadium, with views of the Kallang River and some of Singapore’s most coveted high-rise living, Brewerkz Bar & Grill’s spacious alfresco dining area is ideal for chilling out with one of their famous handcrafted beers and pizzas made on-site in the wood-burning oven – the latter is unique to this outlet. The place fills up every evening, so make sure you stake out a spot early.
