A big city like Jakarta is filled with many tastes and needs, and these often translate into different sports preferences. Be it football, rugby, or the recent international athletic competitions, many people have their favourite place to enjoy exciting moments and cliff-hanger endings. However, when you’re looking for a bit of luxury and comfort with your sporting event, these five places should have you covered. 

Paulaner Brauhaus

As well a good-sized projector and some well-placed screens, Paulaner Brauhaus has some amazing food and beer options. The menu is filled with some of the best German food in the entire city while Paulaner beer comes in a few tasty variations. If you’re looking to enjoy an international game or major sporting event, you will want to call ahead to make sure you get a good spot to comfortably watch the game.

Very few things go as well with an exciting sporting event than expertly smoked and barbequed meat. Sit back in comfortable seating and enjoy some amazing food while you cheer on any number of teams on one of the big screens. Due to the great food and friendly atmosphere, Frank’s Bar and Smokehouse is very popular with large groups and fan clubs.



A smaller venue than most, Brewerkz has a great atmosphere and some great spots from which to enjoy the big screen, making it perfect for Champions League or Premier League games due to a strong football following. It has some reasonably priced drinks offers that are aimed at large groups saving money.

Owned by the group behind Aphrodite, the Liquid Exchange is a more upscale version of the sports and fun ethos behind the well-known Jakarta bar. Located in Epicentrum Walk, the décor is brighter and more elegant than other sports bars, and menu has some interesting drinks choices. Also, as the name suggests, the prices of drinks may change with what is being served that day, mimicking a stock exchange. Never truly packed, this is the perfect place to watch sports in true luxury.

McGettigan’s Irish Pub

Relatively new on the Irish bar scene having only opened in May last year, McGettigan’s Irish Pub has become very popular for sports enthusiasts, especially those looking to enjoy comfort and space.  The grouped seating plan, large quantity of well-placed TVs, and its central location in Mega Kuningan have made this a great place to catch a number of sporting events like rugby and early-morning boxing and UFC fights.
