Whether an international tournament is going on or not, sports fans around the world love a good bar to hang out in and catch a game of football, a Formula 1 race, an ongoing rugby tournament, or a boxing match, among others. From 15 June till 15 July, football fans in Hong Kong will be on the lookout for where to watch the UEFA European Football Championship 2024. Luckily for us, we have dozens of bars that cater to fans, no matter the sport you follow. From mellow pubs with relaxing vibes to visually stimulating modern bars with massive televisions, here are some of the best bars and venues to watch sports in Hong Kong.

With locations in Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui, Zerve is a popular name on the streets. Apart from multiple HD screens spread around its venue, Zerve also has pool tables, dart machines, and all the beer pong tables you need. So if you’re waiting for your match to start, or just need something to keep you occupied during half-time, this is the perfect place to be. If you’re planning to go along with a group of friends, be sure to call ahead and book yourself a table first, as this popular joint is always packed.

Tucked away on the upper floors of The Broadway in Wan Chai, Trafalgar is just like your local pub, with the added bonus of a terrace. Now, while we’re not promising a quiet evening, at least you are slightly removed from the Wan Chai street-level madness. This traditional British pub will be juggling a mixture of live and replayed World Cup action, while pouring drinks and serving up hearty pub grub.

Trafalgar, 5/F, The Broadway, 54–62 Lockhart Road, Wan Chai | (+852) 2110 1535

Joe’s Billiards & Bar

Dare we say it—Joe’s Billiards is certainly one of the local OGs when it comes to sports bars in Hong Kong. Not only does this classically stylish billiard bar have plenty of TVs screening sports games all day, every day, but you will also find pool tables, dart machines, and beer pong tables too. And we must give Joe’s food menu a shout-out, as it has everything from your healthy green salads to giant snail sausage (our favourites are the Monster Wings!) which are sure to satisfy your mid-game hunger pangs.
