Meridian Hotel


If you fancy some cheap ‘n’ cheerful Asian eats to munch on while you catch the big game, Meridian Hotel is the place to go. Something of a Hurstville treasure, they pretty much cover everything from AFL to the cricket, to NRL, footy and the rugby. What’s more, local tap schooners only cost $5.20 all week long, which means there’s plenty of beer for your buck.

Cock ‘N’ Bull Hotel

Bondi Junction

A rowdy Irish pub brimming with good vibes, Cock ‘N’ Bull Hotel is famous for their cover of the UFC. Screening all the main UFC events live on one large projector and 11 big screen TVs, we’re pretty sure you’ll never miss a game again. While you’re there, make sure to catch $12 steak night on Mondays! After all, there’s nothing goes better with a game than a cold beer and nice piece of meat.

“Sunday session is big here with live music and bands. Big smoking area. They have pints here which is great! If you don’t want to be surrounded by Irish people it’s not the place for you !!” – SBCIrish

York 75


Suave and effortlessly stylish, York 75 is a very cool place to catch a game. In fact, it’s got over 20 screens for doing just that, so it’s definitely not taking this whole ‘sports bar’ thing lightly. Private booths with their own screens and table service are available, and they’ve even got in-house sports betting and an on-site TAB if you care for a flutter. Make sure you head down for a pitcher of Hahn Super Dry and a yummy basket of buffalo wings for just $25 on ‘Mad Mondays’.

“The is a few long tall tables and the booths each have a TV screen at the end so patrons can watch whatever sports game they have on display. The house red was actually quite nice for only $8! I also ordered the curly fries and they were pretty good!” – amys_food_adventures
