Sports Bars in Canberra

By Bails - 2 July 2012 8

The biggest game of the Brumbies 2012 season is fast approaching! Brumbies v NSW Waratahs, Saturday night 7:30pm. While it is tempting to make the fabled journey up the Hume Highway to watch the game live, this may not be an option for various reasons.

That leaves me trying to find a decent location to watch the game here in Canberra. I could watch it at home, but it would be nice to embrace the atmosphere with fellow parochial supporters at a sports bar or pub.

These occasions highlight the distinct lack of venues in the ACT that are suited to watching live sport on a big screen tv, with reasonable access to commentary.

The Southern Cross Club in Woden is the place that best satisfies the criteria above. However, it’d be nice to go to a pub that isn’t consumed by pokies.

Does anyone have any suggestions about a good place to go and enjoy the Brumbies win on a big screen?

What’s Your opinion?

It’s my dream to go to a bar in Canberra and not have to mercilessly hound the bar staff to put on the only live game rather than a replay of last year’s World Championship Darts. And it’d be the icing on the cake if they didn’t make me feel like a prick for asking.

Wouldn’t Debacle be all over a game like that? I’m not much of a follower but went along with the brother in law when Brumbies played Waratahs here a couple months ago. We got the Debacle burger and ticket deal and then hopped on the free bus to the game.

I hear Edgar’s in Ainslie is a decent place to watch super rugby matches, but I can’t vouch personally for it.

Edgar’s is great but I don’t remember them having commentary.

The Rugby Union Club will probably have quite a crowd, though I usually go there for Geelong Cats games, not rugby so not sure.
