Undeniably the most entertaining sports league in the world, the Premier League starts anew this week. Will the United duo come up with more swagger dance moves, or will the new Spurs stadium finally bring much-needed luck to their trophy cabinet. All this drama and you don’t know where to watch it? Here is a list of bars and restaurants you can catch it all:
Harry’s has branches in many of Myanmar’s major malls. It has a large projector showing matches Live and also re-runs throughout the week. Good but slightly pricey food for a good quality screening, with the only downside being the closing time—some major Prem’ matches start at 1:30 am and Harry’s closes around 2 am. Fear not, you can catch the re-run the very next day.
Myanmar Plaza (HAGL Myanmar Centre), Kaba Aye Pagoda Road, Bahan Township, Yangon, Myanmar
09 777 708395
11:00AM – 2:00AM
50th Street Bar
A name that stays on the tips of many people’s tongues, locals and expats alike. Dim yellow lights and easy-going staff, 50th street is also a top contender in Myanmar’s sports bar community which is like, almost every bar in Yangon with a TV. There is also a projector upstairs. So if you’re not satisfied with the OLEDS below, grab your beer and proceed upwards. Also closes at around 2 am, so if you really want to catch that late 1:30 fixture, come again the next day for a re-run—they also do that here.
No. 9/13 50th Street, Botahtaung Tsp
01 397 060
10:30 AM – 1:00 AM
Time-Out Sports Bar
As the Novotel Yangon’s resident bar, Time-Out has been offering Live Premier League screenings with an excellent beverage selection. The perfect place to chill out and watch your favorite game, while enjoying a cool bear and good quality finger food. Open til 1 am, it’s the same rodeo with Time-Out, but a re-run is to be expected.
Novotel Yangon Max, 459 Pyay Road, Kamaryut Township, Yangon, Yangon Region, Myanmar
5:00 pm – 12:30 am (Daily) | Happy Hour – 5PM to 8PM
Sport Bar @ Mya Yeik Nyo
Sport Bar is an outdoor-sy scene with wide-screens all over—perfect for that intense last-minute drama. It has a very casual setting, a very widely known place for major fanatics of the sport. Be sure to check in for major matches—some after 1 am as it closes at 2 am.
Pale Rd, Mya Yeik Nyo Royal Hotel, Pearl St. Intersection, Bahan Tsp
09 731 32161
5:00 PM – 2:00 AM
A sports bar by nature, but also great gastronomy with a menu to fit the name; a fusion of Thai, Indian, and some European tastes. Their main focus on ‘sports,’ mostly revolves around the latest footy screenings and even a Playstation to play games on. Even after your 90-minutes are up, you can try your hard at snooker or darts.
7, Padonmar Street Sanchaung Township, Yangon, Myanmar
09 977 766333
11:00 AM – 12:00 AM
Rosie’s is a gem among the huge and spacious bars among this list. In contrast to the Sport Bar, Rosie’s is small but the spirit runs strong. A project, widescreen TVs, and a live band. What more can you ask for? Hit up Rosie’s for the late-night rush of top-flight English football, and maybe some billiards after.
