Sports Bars: Best Seats in the House

Yeah, spring is sprung, but that means it’s an equally important time in the world of sports. Cup Season is a yearly occurrence where drinking beer and talking sports is just as important as actually watching the game.

Read on for our picks of where to watch live games in Hong Kong, venues where the drinks are good, and in some cases, bar snacks and fab finger food abounds.
Oh, and down the bottom you'll find all the important match dates you need, but be sure to check screening times closer to the date. 

The Globe
There’s no place like The Globe when searching for a traditional pub. Homesick Brits and those craving a pint and a pie call in here for their football fix, and for good reason. If you’re after a counter meal or roast while watching your match in comforting surrounds, The Globe is it.
The Globe
Garley Building, 45-53 Graham Street, Central; +852 2543 1941

The Keg
With many, many beers on offer and several screens for watching, it’s hard to go past The Keg. Plus, they do an excellent selection of snacks. Think BBQ pork ribs, fries and chicken wings – all good game watching grub.
The Keg
52 D'Aguilar Street, Lan Kwai Fong, Central; +852 2810 0369

The Spot Bar
With one very large 65-inch screen playing everything from ESPN, Setana and other sporting channels, you’ll find the any game worth watching being screened at The Spot Bar. There are five draught beers on tap, as well as a very large selection of beers and ciders.
The Spot Bar
32 Staunton Street, Central; +(852) 2416 5588

Another classic choice, Stormies is well suited for those wanting to settle in for an afternoon. With a big screen and menu, that features both snack foods, and more substantial savoury meals, there’s a reason the punters have been coming religiously.

The Tipping Point
Football, football, football! The Tipping Point is one for the real enthusiasts and really draws a crowd for the big matches. More so, once July arrives and we’re into the frenzy of the European Cup, this is where you want to come.
