It’s the day you’ve been waiting for all week, or maybe all month, or hell, even the entire season—the day when your team squares off against the competition for an epic battle of skill, strategy and pure athleticism. Now all you have to do is find a spot where you can cozy up on a bar stool with a cold brew in hand and cheer your players on with maybe a curse or two for the competitors thrown in for good measure. Lucky for you, Bali has plenty of places where you can watch the game unfold amid casual and convivial surroundings.
Stadium Cafe and Sports Bar
With two locations, one in Kuta and one in Sanur, Stadium Cafe and Sports Bar caters to sports fans around the island with live sporting events on massive screens and LCD TVs. Whether you’re looking to catch some riveting tennis matches, Formula 1 racing, Moto GP, AFL or rugby, you’ll find chilled out environments, great service, cold drinks and a mix of tasty European, Western and Asian dishes to nosh on at both locations.
Adrenalin Sports Bar
Centrally located upstairs at Seminyak Square, Adrenalin Sports Bar offers air-conditioned coolness, chilled drinks, Western comfort food like hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken wings and homemade pies, and 13 large LCD TVs so that you can catch the games from any spot around the room. Live games are always on, including AFL, NFL, EPL, tennis, rugby and cricket, and you always get efficient service with a smile here.
Bamboo Bar & Grill
Not your typical sports bar, Bamboo Bar & Grill is made out of eco-friendly bamboo, natural stone and wood accents, creating a space that is open and airy, fresh and modern. The warm blonde wooden tables, wicker chairs and comfy cushions make this a pleasant place to spend and afternoon dining on fresh fish, lobster, mud crabs, Aussie beef, pork ribs and pizzas. The 6 flat screen TVs show all types of sporting games every day, so you can sink back into the pillows, grab a cold cocktail and watch the excitement unfold.
The Melting Pot
Unique to the island, the Melting Pot is Bali’s Original Saloon and the home of twice weekly pool tournaments, darts, arcade games and good old American comfort food. Step into this massive space with soaring ceilings, and the first thing you notice is the line up of pool tables brought straight from the US and the multitude of flags from around the world covering the walls. Pull up a stool at the bar or slide into one of the booths along the wall and quaff back some icy cold ones as you take in a sports game in real time on the massive TVs around the bar.
