Top 5 Pubs to watch the Rugby World Cup 2015
What better place to watch the rugby than in our very own brewpub? Comfortable seating for up to 120, cold #DPBC on tap, snacks, and full meals makes The Taproom one of the best spots in Cape Town to support the Bokke. For the Rugby World Cup 2015, we’re pulling out all the stops to bring you the best #RWC2015 experience. Competitions, live entertainment, big screen TVs and amazing specials. It’s our top pick for a reason! Join us for every game of the tournament.
The first time you walk into Barristers you’ll know – “Now this is pub for sport.” From the dark counters to the staggering number of beers on tap, this traditional establishment is as authentic as they come and has a real “game day” vibe. With a rich history and close proximity to the stadium, it has become a staple for locals and a tradition for avid rugby fans. Big screen TVs, a staggering amount of beer, delicious pub food – they deliver on all fronts. There’s plenty of room, so bring all your buddies for the Rugby World Cup action!
Ah, Beerhouse. It’s all in the name, really. 99 bottles of beer on the wall and a myriad of rotating taps helps make this a prime spot for watching the rugby. The huge televisions, perfectly placed around the entirety of the establishment, are always showing something. If the match is big enough, they’ll even bust out the projector! Comfortable, ample seating, delicious munchies, and a very enthusiastic staff make for an epic viewing experience. They’ve got two locations. One in Cape Town and one in Joburg.
4. Van Hunks
If you’re looking for a bit of game day fever, look no further than Van Hunks. The regulars here are rabid rugby fans, and it’s impossible not to get caught up in the hype. Offering a superb selection of craft beer, delicious pizza, burgers and mouthwatering ribs, Van Hunks will have you and your mates gleefully screaming at the massive televisions in no time. Pull in early because this place fills up quick!
Huge indoor and outdoor spaces, tons of televisions, craft beer and great food. It’s an awesome combination for rugby fans and one of our favourite pubs in the tiny town of Franschhoek. Well worth the short drive from Cape Town, patrons can tour a few wine farms before settling in for the game. An epic spot, and we highly recommend it!
