Places to watch soccer in your hood

Watch the game, drink beer + enjoy the specials at these sports bars in Cape Town

Last updated: Tuesday, 22 November 2022

We know that your couch is comfy, but watching soccer from home is just not the same. From the Northern and Southern Suburbs to the middle of the city centre, here are 10 neighbourhood bars screening all the games. Prepare for big screens, booze specials and excited fans.

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH SOCCER FANATICS 

If any spot is a good place to watch the match, it would be The Scrumpy Jack in Observatory. The staff are truly passionate about the game - they host community soccer matches with their patrons and the walls are covered with soccer jerseys and posters. There are screens in every corner, and they operate during loadshedding. 

Sound on/off: On 
Hours: Open daily, 10am to 2am
Specials: All draughts on tap are R28 on the first Friday of every month

KEEP THE VIBES GOING WITH A TWILIGHT HAPPY HOUR

Catch the next game at the jewel of Kloof Street. Take your pick between 3 floors with 3 different vibes at Rick’s Café Américain. Hang out at the bar (which has more than 100 tequila and gins to choose from), get cosy in the lounge area inspired by the classic film Casablanca or enjoy sundowners and late night happy hours on the rooftop lounge. The bar and lounge has TV screens playing Casablanca during the day, but switches over to sport when there’s a big game.

Sound on/off: On
Hours: Open daily; 11am - 2am
Specials: Rick’s Café has not one, but two Happy Hours everyday from 3pm - 6pm and then 10pm till midnight, with discounted cocktails and tap beers.

Filled with padded leather couches and booths, fans can relax and watch the match on one of the several TVs while sipping on cocktails. Plus, they have shisha, too. You can also check out their branch in Gugulethu.

Sound on/off: Off

CATCH THE GAME INSIDE A PRIVATE BAR

Watch the next game in a cosy, private, upstairs bar area at Vasco Da Gama Taverna in De Waterkant, where you can have your own private bar, barmen and a personal waiter. Vasco’s Sailor Bar, which is a new addition to the taverna, seats up to 50 people, it is unique and intimate, and also has a smoking area.

BE TREATED TO SOCCER ON THE BIG SCREEN 

At Chers Sports Bar in Ottery, soccer fans can watch the game on a massive TV screen while chowing down on sticky ribs. Bring your friend or partner who doesn’t know the difference between an offside and a penalty shootout. They’ll still have a good time - Chers also has pool tables, slot machines and a dance floor. 

Sound on/off: On
Hours: Open daily; 11am to 2am
Specials: Black Label Quarts R35; Double brandy and Coke R25
