7 unique places in Singapore to watch the Fifa World Cup Russia 2018

1. Watch it with tourists all around the world – Changi Airport

I may be biased since I live in the East, but I think Changi Airport is the best place to catch the Fifa World Cup. It’s probably the only place in Singapore you can mingle with tourists from around the world to watch the World Cup for free, and in air-conditioned comfort! Sure, the pubs and all at Boat Quay will probably see its fair share of foreigners, but you probably have to pay for a drink at the very least. And because the screen is so huge, even if you don’t snag one of the seats, you can still get a good view of the live action.

70 Best places in Singapore to watch the 2018 Fifa World Cup Russia

Need some ideas on where in Singapore to watch the 2018 World Cup held in Russia? How about 70 ideas??? Scroll down to see the list of places sorted by location. This includes places to watch the World Cup for free (bring your own food and drink), as well as good cafes/pubs/restaurants. Practically every single establishment is having some sort of drinks promo, special dishes and even contests. Click on the blue links to find out more.

Make sure you check the screening schedule of the individual locations, as not all the matches might be screened. More people in Singapore are expected to watch the World Cup outside this time round because Russia’s time difference with Singapore is much more favourable. I’ve consulted an “in-house expert” and these have been listed as some of the more popular matches at convenient timings. So if you want to go soak up some World Cup atmosphere, follow this list! The timings below are all noted in Singapore time.

  • 16 June Saturday 6pm – France vs Australia
  • 17 June Sunday 11pm – Germany vs Mexico
  • 18 June Monday 8pm – Sweden vs Korean Republic

Beer Market at Clarke Quay

You may have heard of the stock market, but have you ever heard of a beer market? You heard me right man. I recently discovered this lovely hangout place in Clarke Quay called Beer Market. It is run by 3 beer loving best friends who used to study together at SJI. They say many a friendship is ruined when friends become colleagues. Guess this rule doesn’t apply to the trio as Beer Market has been going strong for the last 3 years!

Beer Market, as the name suggests, really works like a stock exchange.There is no shouting of course, anyway it’s all automated nowadays, except for the Chicago Mercantile Exchange I believe. Incidentally, I was working at the Singapore Exchange when they closed the floors, but I digress.Beer Market Trading Screens (5)

Screens like these are located all over the restaurant pub. It’s not too difficult to grasp. All you have to do is keep watch of the prices, which is the price you’d pay if you ordered a beer at that instant. The prices change every 30 minutes, so there’s no need to be on your toes the entire time. If you like the price, you buy. If you don’t, you wait, or you choose a different beer. Easy peasy right? For detailed instructions, click here.

If you love sampling new types of beer, Beer Market is the perfect place. There is less risk in trying out beers with low buying volume as those beers are at a cheaper price! Wow I love this concept!

Scruffy Murphy’s Irish Cafe and Pub

I think like many Singaporeans, when we hear the word “Pub”, we tend to think of the place as a sleazy, alcoholic’s haven, a place not for the family oriented. Apparently, this is totally not the case when the “pubs” in referenced are styled after the British/Irish types. Lots of families dine there for affordable comfort food.

So, don’t be surprised when you look at Scruffy Murphy’s menu and you find a whole range of dishes on offer from things like Roast Beef, Fish & Chips, a good range of sandwiches and pasta. I love ordering the Daily Roast when I’m here. It’s one of the few places where you can get roast beef, and at a very affordable price of $16.00! Compare that to the nearly $90 roast beef I had at Lawry’s a month back! Of course, dining at Lawry’s comes with other perks such as the excellent service and a more atas feeling, but one can’t dine at Lawry’s all the time! Another dish that is supposedly very good is the Fish and Chips, although I don’t think it is that fantastic. It costs $16 and they give you 4 huge pieces of fish, of which I was unable to finish.

The Gaelic Inns chain which owns Scruffy Murphy’s, also owns other pubs like Muddy Murphys, The Penny Black Victorian London Pub, Ballymoons and Durty Nelly’s. They are all styled after Irish pubs, but are each slightly different in character. Scruffy Murphys’ is the most “open-concept” one as it faces the East Coast beach. I love it that I can have my dinner while watching the cyclists go by. The Penny Black is situated along the Singapore River, so that’s also a nice place to people watch.

Scruffy Murphy's - Lamb ChopsScruffy Murphy's - Lamb Chops (2)

Rack of lamb $25- Quite nice, but a bit tough. I love the potato triangles dipped in gravy (you can just see it sticking out behind the lamb)

Scruffy Murphy's - Roast Beef with mashed potatoes and Yorkshire Pudding Scruffy Murphy's - Roast Beef with mashed potatoes and Yorkshire Pudding (2)

Daily Roast (Roast Beef with mashed potatoes and yorkshire pudding) $16 – For $16, I think this is an absolute steal. The portion of meat is substantial. It was juicy and flavourful and I finished every single bit. For $16, i really have no complaints!
