Mighty good sports bars in Wellington

If you can't make game day, the next best thing is settling in to one of Wellington's coolest sports bars for the night. We've got a few top ideas of bars that have the essentials: brews, food and television.

Lovelocks Sports Bar

Catch all the live sport action from a bar stool at Lovelocks Sports Bar. They've got plenty of TVs, beverages and bar snacks to keep you going, and you can even order Hell Pizza from downstairs and have it delivered right to your table. Bonus!

The Green Man

The Green Man is a Kiwi-Irish bar with a twist, so as you can imagine, they're pretty fanatical about their sport. Test your knowledge in a pub quiz while you wait for the game to come on!

Hotel Bristol

Situated in the heart of Cuba Mall is Hotel Bristol. It's decked out with pool tables, a sunny outdoor area and most importantly, they play all the important sports games on a big screen.

Four Kings

Four Kings on the corner of Taranaki and Dixon Streets is a super central location for sport watching. Plonk yourself down in front of one of the many televisions and enjoy.

J J Murphy & Co

For a truly Irish experience...and a spot of sport, pop down to J J Murphy & Co. They've got several pool tables too, so you can show off to your mates during half time.

The Cambridge Hotel

Situated in a restored heritage building on Cambridge Terrace is The Cambridge Hotel - a good spot to head to for screaming at the TV and sipping on a couple of brews.

Speight's Ale House

Head to The Shepherds Arms in Thorndon and you'll come across The Speight's Ale House, bringing strong traditions of legendary Southern Hospitality to Wellington. This includes sport. Yes!
