Gather your friends and catch your much-anticipated game at any of these 15 sports bars in Singapore carefully selected for you! Celebrate victories over mugs of beer, greasy finger-food and the company of sports lovers like yourself. Be it a live telecast of football, rugby, F1 or golf, these bars are ready for all of your passionate cheerings.
1. Brewerkz Indoor Stadium
Brewerkz first landed on the shores of Singapore in 1997 and has now branched out into three different locations here: Riverside Point, Orchard Rendezvous Hotel and Singapore Indoor Stadium. Sometimes, what you need most after an excruciatingly long week is a hangout session with your closest friends as you sip on your well-deserved tall and cold beer. Toss in the buzzing sound of sports commentary in the background, we personally think it sounds like the perfect way to sizzle a week’s worth of stress away already.
The brains behind Brewerkz understand that chilled beer and greasy Western food makes a good accompaniment to passionate cheering. So fill in your dosage of weekly football as you get your grub on the heartiest burgers and wood-fired pizzas in town. The classic Hawaiian Pizza comes topped with a generous amount of mozzarella cheese, juicy pineapple cuts, ham, olive and jalapeno slices for the hot kick. Handmade, the pizzas here are served with a thin-crust which are both soft and delightfully chewy.
Not in the mood for carbs? Make sure to get the Spicy Chicken Satay instead. Beware though because the satay here is not our regular small pieces of meat on a stick. The large chunks of meat are well grilled and taste even better when coated with the rich peanut sauce.
Brewerkz updates their live screening schedules regularly on their Facebook, so all you need to do is plan well and get vouchers from ChopeDeals before you make your way there!

2. Brotzeit German Bier Bar & Restaurant (VivoCity)
Brotzeit is a typical Bavarian expression – "Brot" being German for bread and "Zeit" for time. The name of the popular German eatery implies that a cosy meal should be complemented with fresh beer. Get your hands on Bavarian cuisine as the sports commentaries buzz busily in the background. The VivoCity outlet is a hot favourite when it comes to catching live football matches or golf tournaments with friends of the same interests.
The Gebackenes highlights their best deep-fried finger food. Crispy golden brown prawns, dory fish fillets, chicken fingers and thickly cut potato wedges complete the dish. Alternate your bites with a dip of mustard, mayonnaise and a special sweet-sour condiment for a new taste every time.
Meanwhile, the Würstelplatte is an authentic sausage platter consisting of spicy chicken sausage, lamb sausage, mini pork cheese sausages, weisswurst sausage and garlic sausage. This comes with sauerkraut (fermented finely cut cabbage slices) and mustard. Pair these with a frothy beer of your choice and you are set for the night. Beer and sausages - weird to some but a true delicacy to those with exquisite taste.

Immediately after, it is glazed with an in-house barbecue sauce before served with a side of creamy coleslaw and thick fries.

Their special sauce is spread evenly in a brioche bun before being served with fries.
The Bacon Cheese Fries is creamy, rich and meaty all at once. Not exactly recommended if you are looking to lose weight but who cares? If anyone asks, tell them it’s your cheat day because nothing is better than greasy food after the occasional disappointing matches.

Here, you can chill while watching a football game and enjoy good food all at the same time.
The menu offers pizza, burgers and a number of Asian dishes. We strongly recommend the Team Platter where Satay Skewers, Corn Chip, Crispy Jumbo Shrimp, Fried Chicken Wings, Salad and Dipping Sauce are served on a plate to share. The Crispy Jumbo Shrimps are huge in size with crunchy batter and sweet juicy flesh, tastes even better when dipped with the tartar or sambal sauce provided
Get the Lamb Shank with Mashed Potatoes and Salad if you are up for a filling meal. Expect tender meat that will melt in your mouth, refreshing salad for balance and creamy homemade mashed potatoes. The soft lamb meat will blow your expectations off the roof.
Team Burger is served in a dish that mimics a burger takeout box, definitely worthy of an Instastory snap.
