- The Barrel Pub & Grill, Seminyak
Seminyak offers you many options for sports bars. But, I recommend The Barrel Pub & Grill for its strategic location and cozy setting, unlike most bars that are often clustered and dirty. The Barrel is located right across from Seminyak Beach, in the area called Double Six. In conjunction with FuramaXclusive resort, this sports bar offers nothing but exclusivity.
Where ever you choose to sit, there are flat-screen TVs visible from every angle. And there is a big projector screen available. Being an Australian themed bar, The Barrel Pub & Grill usually put on Australian football matches on the big screen. But if you come as a large group, you can reserve the seats in front of the big screen and request whichever live sports game you want to watch. I usually come here with my MMA gym buddies on Sundays to watch UFC bouts.
