Places To Watch Soccer In Your Hood

From chilled pub vibes to intense stadium experiences

Last Updated: 31 July 2019

August is soccer month, with the PSL, English Premier League and other major European soccer leagues kicking off their new season. We’ve rounded up our pick of spots – from the unexpected to super-cool new places – where you can catch the action.

WATCH THE GAME AND PLAY A GAME
Buckley’s in Bellville is where you want to be for the big games, especially because they frequently run drinks and food specials on game days. There are also slot machines and pool tables and you can try your own shots at goal on the foosball tables.

Edward Street | Bellville | +27 (0)21 910 4458 | buckleys@edwardstreet.co.za

SPECIALS ON GAME DAY
Catch the game while having an Oak Burger or the Oakinator (beef patty, bacon, cheese and garnishing). They also have an array of beer options, TVs everywhere and often run specials in conjunction with game days at The Happy Oak in Stellenbosch. 

62 Andringa Street | Stellenbosch | +27 (0)21 882 9672 | info@thehappyoak.co.za 

OKTOBERFEST-STYLE
With roots in Germany and Morocco and famously stocking a large selection of local craft and imported beers, plus large-screen TVs and an easy, warm, family-friendly atmosphere, there are loads of cool reasons to catch the game at Café Extrablatt in Green Point.

79 Main Road | Green Point | info@cafe-extrablatt.co.za | +27 (0)21 434 3759

99 BEERS AND FOOTIE ON THE BIG SCREEN
Big-screen TVs, a projector, 25 brews on tap, 99 bottled beers (many that you can’t find anywhere else in the city), finger food and a great vibe... catch the game at Beerhouse on Long Street.

223 Long Street | onlong@beerhouse.co.za | +27 (0)21 424 3370

RIGHT IN THE ACTION
Chill on a bean bag and clink a glass with the cool kids that congregate here. This laidback pub-and-grub spot does delicious and budget-friendly (but filling) food, like cheese fries and veggie enchiladas. Pull up a comfy couch and grab a few mates to join you at the Forex Bar

92-96 Station Road | Observatory | 021 448 0083

PIZZA, BEER AND FOOTIE
Home of the Cape Town Liverpool Fan Club, this trendy sports bar is kitted out with five 42-inch screens and a mega 250-inch projector screen, with benches lined up like stadium seats. With four different beers on tap, and a chef making everything from grilled meat to stacked large pizza, it’s no wonder fans are flocking to the Premium Sports bar.

1 Avocado Street | Westridge | Mitchell’s Plain | Cape Town | +27 (0)79 821 2398

ACTION, GRUB, NEW FRIENDS
With large screens in the bar and restaurant area, as well as a giant projector, Pirates Steakhouse & Pub in Plumstead is the go-to sports-viewing spot for locals looking for good grub and a cold lager. The friendly atmosphere and food (steaks, burgers, pork belly and juicy ribs) make this an easy choice for those looking to cheer on their favourite team. Expect a lot of celebrating after the match. Ask about the Privateers Club if you want to save some cash.

160 Main Road | Plumstead | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 797 5659

JOIN THE LOCALS
Pisto's – a trendy bar and lounge in bustling Gugulethu – is a favourite with locals. Kick back on the leather lounge suite in front of the big-screen TV to take in all the soccer action. Once the game is over, stick around and celebrate well into the night with the influx of partygoers.

NY 112 | Gugulethu | Cape Town | +27 (0)82 952 4599

VIEW THE MATCHES AND THE SCENERY
Doodles Beachfront has a restaurant, bar and the largest outside seating area in Blouberg. This, along with a panoramic view of Table Mountain, creates an awesome setting for watching soccer. After the game you can catch live music while the sun sets across the bay.

110 Beach Boulevard | Bloubergstrand | Cape Town | +27 (0)21 554 1080
