Whatever the sport, you can watch it at these bars. While some are known for their Australian and Irish dude food, you can check out some of the craft beers and wines there, too.
Located right next to the G-Max Reverse Bungy, Bungy Bar offers a great view of the hell-raising ride. Despite all the adrenaline from those G’s, the open, alfresco bar has a laidback vibe. #01-07 Blk. E Clarke Quay, 3 River Valley Rd.,6339-5707. Open Sun-Thu 1pm-1am; Fri-Sat 1pm-3am.
A favorite with Aussie expats, the bar is also popular with sports nuts thanks to its multiple flat-screen TVs. Tuck into the hearty steak sandwich ($25) or kangaroo burger (also $25), and wash it all down with a wide range of Australian draught beers, such as Pure Blonde (from $12). 52 Circular Rd., 6536-4990. Open Mon-Fri 6pm-midnight; Sat-Sun 7am-midnight.
Chamber Bar & Bistro
Chill out to contemporary hits indoors as you play pool and drink yourself silly here from as early as 4pm—its happy hour rates get you one-for-one on housepours, wines and beers. #01-16 Robertson Walk, 11 Unity St., 6738-1332. Open Mon-Thu 3:30pm-1am; Fri-Sat 3:30pm-2am; Sun 5pm-1am.
A popular Irish bar and restaurant in the Middle East, McGettigan's Singapore is located in an airy corner of Clarke Quay. Decked out in mahogany wood with bookshelves lining the walls and plush leather banquettes, it not only pours lots of pints but has a menu of traditional Irish offerings like Irish stew, beer battered fish and chips and the signature buffalo hot wings. #01-01C Clarke Quay, 3 River Valley Rd., 6694-6911. Open Mon-Fri noon-3am; Sat-Sun 10-3am.
Much like its Tokyo counterpart, this watering hole attracts those who know how to party hard and want a no-frills good time. The alfresco dining and drinking area spills out on to the lively streets of Boat Quay, while the island-style bar has a big bell you can ring to buy everyone a drink. 3 Canton St., 6438-9808. Open Mon-Fri 11-3am; Sat 5pm-4am.
Every day is St Patrick’s Day at Muddy Murphy’s, and there’s no better place in town to knock back a couple of ales fresh from the tap. While you’re glued to the on-field action, tuck into hearty Irish stew or beef and Guinness pie and wash it all down with more beer. #01-02-05 Claymore Connect, 442 Orchard Rd., 6735 0400. Open Sun-Thu 11am-1am; Fri-Sat 11am-2am.
Remember to try the English ale Old Speckled Hen if you visit this pub.

Open Mon-Thu 11:30-1am; Fri-Sat 11:30-2am; Sun 11:30am-midnight.

There’s no lack of activities at Wave House—there seems to always be a DJ spinning, a slew of schoolies on the FlowRider and a bevvy of pros on the FlowBarrel. There is an indoor restaurant, but you can also order tapas, sandwiches and pizzas from the beach bar, and then hit the waves again. 36 Siloso Beach Walk, 6377-3113. Open daily 10:30am-10:30pm.
