Here are the Bucharest Urban Adventures team’s favourite 5 sports bars to watch the beautiful game…
Stadio is a favourite hang-out with locals, especially for sporting events. The cheerful atmosphere and the cool design, somewhere between an Italian restaurant and a British pub, with industrial touches makes this place a great place to watch sport events.
Address: Ion Campineanu 11, Bucharest.
Located in Bucharest’s bustling Old City centre, St Patrick is a cosy Irish bar famous for its beer and big plates of nachos. The bar has several floors, and you can watch your favourite team on all of them. However, #localsknow the bridge room on the underground level is the coolest. Strada Smârdan 23-25, Bucharest.
Broadcasting sports events and games every single day, Champions has to be one of the best places to watch the World Cup in Bucharest. And probably one of the fanciest, as it’s located inside the JW Marriott hotel.
(Don’t worry, it’s still super casual and budget-friendly.) They have 27-inch TV plasma screens to make the whole experience of watching your favourite team even more enjoyable.
Address: JW Marriott Bucharest Grand Hotel Calea 13 Septembrie 90, Bucharest.
Just like St. Patrick, Halftime is also located in the Old City centre, a famous gathering place for the most passionate supporters. The atmosphere is like one in a real stadium, with anthem singing and all. Halftime is light on food, but compensates with cheap beer.
Address: 14, Gabroveni Street, Bucharest
Located in downtown Bucharest, very close to University Square, InFusion Sports Bar features a lot of TV screens and is always packed with people who are into sports. The bar also has a great variety of bottled and draught beer, as well as super tasty bites.
Address: Strada Ion Ghica nr.2, Bucharest
