The Premier League is popular all over the globe but outside of the UK, the most passionate fans are most definitely in Asia. Singapore has lots of great bars from where you eat great food, drink great drinks and watch some of the best players in the world including Aguero, Rooney, Ighalo, Hazard and Kane.
One Place Bistro & Bar
Located in the northeast of the island in Sengkang, One Place Bistro & Bar is one of the very best sports bars in the area. They serve proper bar snacks like chicken wings, cheesy fries and calamari as well as prime steak while playing live Premier League matches to an adoring audience.
The atmosphere is chilled and the bar is renowned for its fantastic customer service – it’s been described as ‘going to a friend’s house’ and the staff and bosses will look after you properly, going as far as coming out and watching the games with you!
They have one of the best beer lists in the area and there’s no better recipe than cold beer, fried bar snacks and the best football in the world !
Pints & Curries
There’s no mistaking what this Clarke Quay gastrobar does, and they do it very well indeed – pints of ice-cold commercial and craft beers and lagers, delicious Thai and Indian curries and big screens to watch Premier League football.
Clarke Quay is rapidly becoming Singapore’s hippest area and there’s always a great atmosphere on match day (usually around midnight – 1am on Saturdays and Sundays) and the added bonus of watching Premier League football in Pints & Curries is that you can go clubbing right after!
If you download the free Grabz app, you can get some great offers including cheap beer and money off your food bill so if you’re looking to recreate a classic British night out with beer, curry and football, Pints & Curries it is!
The Bank Bar & Bistro
The Bank is the spiritual home of Singapore’s Manchester United fans so if you want to watch Rooney, Mata, Martial and friends, this is the place to do it. The bar is on Shenton Way, right beside the Marina Bay complex so you’re right in the middle of the CBD.
It’s described as a ‘premium food and beverage lifestyle concept’ and while that might have come straight out of a marketing executive’s notebook, the bar isn’t your usual idea of a sports bar. The space is cavernous and is full of leather and chandeliers but come match day, and especially a United match day, you’ll not notice the décor.
The food is top-end gastropub fare including ribs, fish and chips, bangers and mash and a selection of seafood and as for drinks, well happy hour runs from 11am – 8pm and you’ll find a great selection of beers, cocktails, spirits and whiskies to either celebrate a win or drown your sorrows in defeat!
The Penny Black
The sister pub to Muddy Murphy’s, The Penny Black is a Victorian pub that was built piece-by-piece in England and then painstakingly shipped to Singapore and, in their own words, is a ‘highly authentic representation of a traditional Victorian London pub created as a celebration of that first postage stamp from the UK’s Royal Mail.’
The spiritual home of the Newcastle United Supporters Club Singapore, you can take your drinks out to the quayside seating area overlooking the Singapore River or you can sit inside in the bar or upstairs in the snug. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the vibe is quintessentially English!
Every weekend you’ll find live Premier League football and Aviva Premiership rugby and the food is as you’d expect from a proper pub – Beef and Guinness Pie, real Sunday roasts, a full English breakfast, Cornish pasties and the most English of English dishes – the classic Chicken Tikka Masala. There’s Kilkenney, Strongbow, Guinness, Old Speckled Hen and Heineken on tap as well as a range of bottles, shorts, wines, Champagnes and cocktails but it’s beer and pie all the way at The Penny Black!
Molly Roffey’s Irish Pub
The second Irish pub on our list, Molly Roffey’s on Bras Basah Road is home to the Official Arsenal Singapore Supporters Club so don’t show up in your Spurs shirt!
On match days the place gets packed so don’t expect a quiet bar where you can eat and drink on date night and watch the match out of the corner of your eye! There’s standing room only (and you’ll be lucky to get that) and the crowd is loud so get there early, have a few beers and soak up the fantastic atmosphere.
As you’d expect, the beer flows freely and there’s a great selection of food including small bites, pizzas and the classic pub grub – fish and chips, shepherd’s pie, bangers and mash and a super-tasty Irish lamb stew so come and see Molly for good food, good beers and good football – most of the time!
As the name suggests, Muddy Murphy’s is a traditional Irish pub that’s packed with ex-pats watching the best football league in the world. Just off the world-famous Orchard Road, Muddy Murphy’s serves up Guinness by the bucket load, delicious food cooked to order and live sport on six big screens.
Classic Irish pub grub includes fish and chips, beef and Guinness pie and their famous Irish Farmhouse Breakfast and the beers are just as famous including Kilkenney, Old Speckled Hen and Erdinger Weissbier.
If you’re looking for a true taste of Dublin, some great sport and a lively craic, head on over the Muddy Murphy’s.
Atmosphere Bistro & Bar
Perhaps the best thing about Atmosphere in Parkland Green at East Coast Park is that their closing time is dependent on when the football finishes!
One giant screen supported by plenty of smaller screens dotted around the place and there are always beer promotions on to tempt you in for a night of food, drink and footie.
The menu is gastrobar-quality including handmade pizzas, grills and mains including a great Wagyu burger, duck confit and Miso salmon and pasta dishes. If you’re here for the football, the Sausage Platter, Golden Platter or the Vegetarian Platter is perfect to share, as are the appetisers and snacks with plenty of deep-fried delights to keep you going until your team finally scores!
The Chamber Bar & Bistro
Sitting in the open square at Robertson Quay, the Chamber offers open air drinking and a great atmosphere where you can eat, drink and watch Premier League football.
Large crowds gather here on match days and Robertson Quay’s stadium-like atmosphere means that watching football here in the square is as close as possible to watching the games live. Styled with the Mediterranean in mind, The Chamber serves decent bar food as well as some classic Singaporean dishes and they do 1-4-1 drinks from 4pm until 8pm.
This is most certainly not the place for date night but it most certainly is the place to watch football!
Bar Bar Black Sheep
There are currently four branches of Bar Bar Black Sheep in Singapore and each one is slightly different to the next, including variations to the menu as well as the live football they show so it’s wise to check before you arrive that the game you want to watch is on!
BBBS is a really chilled-out, friendly place to be and the specialty kitchens – Thai, Western, Japanese and North Indian – will have you pouring over the 160-item menu for ages but whatever you choose will be delicious, including classic comfort food while you’re watching the games on huge HD screens.
With a great selection of craft beers, cocktails and spirits and the food and drink very well priced, there are few places in Singapore from where you’ll get a better relaxed, football-watching atmosphere.
Zouk Wine Bar
Zouk is one of Singapore’s most popular clubs where you’ll find the Garden City’s beautiful people but before you dive headlong into a night of hardcore clubbing, the Wine Bar is a pre-club watering hole where you can chill out and watch the football.
There’s a huge outdoor space but if that gets busy, the air-conditioned interior is a über-cool place to be with a long bar, tables and sofas. As you’d expect, food and drink is extensive and outstanding and the football crowd can enjoy classic bar snacks such as French fries, wedges, calamari, nachos and chicken nuggets.
Unlikely you’ll find the hardcore football fans here but you will find football as well as Singapore’s ‘it’ crowd, superb cocktails and a chilled vibe.
