Bars, Pubs and Restaurants Screening Nothing But The Rugby World Cup

And several others that will put it on if you ask

Latest update: 23 November 2021

These venues are as crazy about the rugby as you are.  You might be excited to watch it in the comfort of your own home. LG has the newest and most premium LCD TV, QNED Mini-LED TV, is, now available in SA from October 2021

----------

The Toad’s co-owner is former Springbok player Bob Skinstad. At the Oblivion Bar & Kitchen you can watch the game everywhere: the rooftop garden, on the projector screens downstairs, or big screen TVs in the intimate upstairs section, and at Springbok Blues a Springbok game can be enjoyed with a Springboks Platter. 

 

ROOFTOP DECK, PROJECTORS AND BIG SCREENS

The rooftop deck of Oblivion Bar & Kitchen is a festive spot to watch the games, but leave the kids at home it’s over 23s only. The wine and cocktail menu is extensive, and you can also grab a pizza or burger while watching the Bokke in action. Games can also be watched on the projector screens downstairs or big-screen TVs in the intimate vintage upstairs section. South Africa’s matches are the main priority but if the Boks aren’t playing and you want some rugby action, ask the staff to put on other games. 
Other Sports: Yes, when requested.
